In Part I we discussed the fact that God’s Kingdom operates by laws – His laws. Therefore, since laws by nature work every time according to the rules, we can know that God’s laws work every time we operate them according to faith.
Let’s discuss some of the laws:
1 – The Royal Law of Love
James 2:8 (KJV) 8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
Romans 13:10 (KJV) 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
John 3:16 (KJV) 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Romans 8:37 (KJV) 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
1 John 4:16 (KJV) 16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
From these scriptures, we see that God is love. He doesn’t just have love, He actually is love. His DNA is love! That’s awesome! His love is everlasting, forever and ever. We can’t do anything to make God love us more because God’s love for us isn’t performance based. And our disobedience doesn’t make Him love us less. Disobedience diminishes our love for Him. Bad idea!
Check out I Corinthians 13:4-8 in the Amplified translation. It shows us how to operate in the love of God that’s in us as born-again believers.
Romans 5:5 (KJV) 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
The love of God flowing out from you will make your life so much simpler and you won’t be aggravated with stress, anxiety, torture, and torment. It seems that God’s love softens everything around us and people will like you better and you’ll like yourself better!
2 – The Law of Faith
Romans 3:27 (KJV) 27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
Wow—this is great one because it’s so comforting that faith is a law and it works every time. Too many times before our minds were renewed by God’s Word, it seemed to be a question about whether or not “faith” would work. But once you see that it’s a law, you can have confidence that it will do exactly what the Lord said it would do.
Every promise of God and everything from God to us is received by faith because He’s a faith God and therefore, as sons of God, we are to walk by faith and not by sight. We are to be led by His Spirit and not by our five physical senses. It’s not that we ignore our senses but they are not to lead us. The Holy Spirit is the One Who is to lead us but we’ve been so inundated by the world’s way of thinking that we have to on purpose stop and ask, “What does God’s Word say about our situation?” Then we have to actually do what the Word says.
2 Corinthians 5:7 (KJV) 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
Hebrews 11:1 (AMP) 1 NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
Faith is the key to unlocking the promises of God; it’s the access code! And very simply, the definition of faith is believing what God said in His Word and then acting on it! Or, as Andrew Wommack says: faith is our positive response to what God has already freely given by His grace.
Romans 12:3b (KJV) 3 … according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
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.
Romans 10:17 (KJV) 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
That means that you have to get into God’s Word and get God’s Word into you!
Let’s be more than conquerors and walk by faith and not by sight!
