The Faith-connection

“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23

The blessings God gives us through His Word and His Spirit are spiritual, and can’t be discerned with our physical senses. We live in a physical world and therefore need to translate these spiritual blessings to material substances we can enjoy here on earth. In Hebrews 11:1, the Bible says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” In other words, faith gives evidence to, or makes concrete or tangible what the physical senses can’t perceive. God is a Spirit (John 4:24), and He operates from the spirit realm. To Him, things in that realm are more real than the things we perceive with our senses.

In Mark 11:22, we’re told to have the God-kind of faith; the supernatural faith that God applies. We see Him apply this faith principle in Genesis 1. The earth God created had been destroyed and was enveloped in gross darkness. Dissatisfied with the state of things, God spoke forth what He believed, and changed the hitherto chaotic mass into the beautiful world He desired. He applied faith to bring forth into the physical that which He had conceived in the spirit realm.

Applying the same faith-principle, you can frame or recreate your world; you can bring forth the good things you want to see in your life. The power to make this happen is the Word of God in your mouth. God has bequeathed to you all things requisite and suited for godliness and the glory-life (2 Peter 1:3). But you have to speak forth those things: divine health, absolute prosperity, unending success, abundant joy and indescribable peace. These are your divine inalienable rights as a child of God. But to enjoy them to the full requires the faith-connection; you have to make them the focus of your meditation and confession.
