Too many times Christians shoot up a prayer to God and hope it sticks but it doesn’t. It just seems like it bounces off the ceiling and hits them right in back in the head. What’s wrong with this picture?
The thing that’s wrong is they’re not connecting. It’s like turning on a lamp but without plugging it into the electric outlet. Is the electric still being generated? Yes, but because the plug isn’t connected to the power source, we have no light.
So it is with getting connected to God. We connect to God spirit to Spirit right? And since all the promises of God to us are always YES, how do we get them to manifest in our lives?
First of all, all the promises of God are YES, but they’re in the spirit realm because that’s the realm of God. We live in the natural/physical realm, the realm of the five senses. Our job is to get what’s in the spirit realm into the physical realm so we can benefit from the promises. Everything we’ll ever need, God has already provided through the promises in His Word. Now hold on because the next step will answer your question of how do we do it.
Faith is the way we access the spirit realm. It’s the bridge between the spirit realm and the physical realm. Everything you’ll ever need is provided for you in the spirit realm and you use your faith to draw it into the natural realm where it benefits you. This is awesome!
God has set it up like this because He’s a faith God. Without faith it’s impossible to please God and those who come to Him must believe that He is God and is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.
Let me give you a definition of faith: Faith is simply believing what God has said in His Word and acting on it. Another definition is what Andrew Wommack says: Faith is our positive response to what God by His grace has already given us.
Brothers and sisters, this is so important. We have to believe that God’s Word is the final authority in everything we do or we’ll forever be frustrated in our walk with the Lord. Always ask this question: What does God’s Word say?
It’s so completely and absolutely beyond our imagination how much God has provided for us so that we can walk in victory and bring glory to His Name!
Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
John 4:24 (KJV) 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) 20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
