Hebrew 11:1 Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen.
So many people think FAITH is just some abstract thing of imagination and claiming to believe. Question is, what do you believe? Do u believe that what you asked of God will be answered or u believe that according to God’s will, what you asked of Him will be answered? If your response is the later, then you’re on the right track.
Second question would be, what is God’s will?
God’s will is that which He has promised concerning our every situation. God has a word(s) and/or promise(s) in the Bible concerning our every situation. We just need to align / link that particular will to our situation for that situation to be solved. For e.g. If we say we are sick, how do you get healing? By knowing God’s will concerning the sickness and that is “by His stripes, we are healed”. By proclaiming this will of God during prayer (operative word is PROCLAIMATION. You need to speak it out. Remember God’s word that says “Death and life are in the power of the tongue”) along with asking for His healing power, God will most definitely honour His word.
The bible says, without faith, it is impossible to please God. So you need to get the right formula, which is CONSTANTLY PROCLAMING His word (relevant word) concerning that situation.
Constant proclamation is the key. You have to keep saying it for you to believe your own words; for God’s word to grow. Remember Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God. So the more you SAY it, the more God’s word grows in you. Also remember, God’s word is life, so the more life is in you as you SAY it, the better.
Lastly, remember the Bible says, “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks”. Knowing that what we say matters a lot by giving life or death to us, we need to chew on God’s words so that our hearts can be filled with His word(s) in order for us to speak His words and create life within us.
