(Hebrews 11:6) But without faith it is impossible to please Him (God): for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him
Faith is a spiritual force that commits God’s integrity to work out His good promise upon our lives. This means that if God has said anything to you and you have faith, you have committed His integrity that He will make happen what He has said. Faith is the bridge that connects you to your destination. Faith is power that gives you control over your situations and atmosphere. Once you lose faith, you have lost control of all things.
Until you know how to appropriate your faith you will not be guaranteed victory in your life as a child of God. Faith is the deciding factor. Faith is to be applied. The application of faith helps you to apply the word of God or promises in spite of how you feel, in spite of your circumstances and what your feelings and obstacles are. Applying your faith helps you to know how to stand and fight between what the word of God says about you and what your situation, location and condition is saying.
Many Christian use “belief” and “faith” interchangeably, but there is a big difference, though dictionary put them to mean the same thing, they are not. This is the reason many people think that it is enough to believe or have a belief in God, but that is not the same thing as having faith in God. Faith is more than believe, faith is absolute trust and dependence on God and on His Word. James 2:19 says, “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.” You need to get this understanding so that you can appropriate your faith in the right manner as a child of God.
Until you know how to appropriate your faith, you cannot be delivered into your inheritance. This is because you will lack good report before God and you cannot takeover in destiny. Apostle James told us that believe is not enough. We must move over to the place of faith. The application of faith is to get a picture out of the Scripture. It is to use the Word of God to fight. It is to stand on what God has said. I prophesy, receive faith to overcome in Jesus name, Amen.
Meditation: Until you know how to appropriate your faith you will not be guaranteed victory in your life as a child of God.
