In the world, they say” seeing is believing”, in the kingdom of God, believing is seeing. To see before you believe means you’re carnal – physical and powerless. Everything your eye can behold was created by faith in the spiritual world before it became a thing. If you wait to see your desires made manifest before you believe in the power of God you’re denying yourself of the favor of God. To have hope is good, but it takes faith and love to work with God and do exploits. Hope is about the future, faith is about now and love gives us the joy and happiness to live in the reality of faith as the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen. The ability to convert hope into faith is the difference between failure and success. Hope says: i will be a winner, which means, “now” it’s not; and faith says: I AM A WINNER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE! That settles it. “ for thou shall decree a thing and it shall come to pass“. In Matthew 17:20, Jesus said” …….if you have faith as grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you”. This means that when you plan by faith, and you’re ready to act, God takes over and heavens begin to orchestrate the events that will enable you to accomplish your desire,”Now” it’s done because in the realm of God there’s no time. When you doubt, you delay the process of manifestation and faith becomes hope.
. If you think you’re imperfect and that you aren’t good enough to do certain thing, you can’t ever be perfect because you believe in your natural strength and by strength shall no man prevail. In 1 Corinthians 2:14, the word of God says” the natural man receives not the things of the spirit of God, neither can he understand them for they are spiritually designed”. Unbelief is the cause of fear, and fear is as a result of separation from God. If you think you are poor, you can’t ever be wealthy, why? Whatsoever a man sows that shall he reaps.The people of the world live in the philosophy of ” STRUGGLE CONTINUES”, that’s why the majority of them are struggling. In Christ, SUCCESS CONTINUES, when men are cast down, you are lifted up by the grace and power of God, that’s the experience of faith!
Anxiety, fear, worriness and depression are the evidence of trust in your own understanding. These are the effect of the enemy of your faith- unbelief as a result of lack of sufficient knowledge of God’s word. Unbelief is an anti-self enemy that denies you of your happiness, which means: man against himself. You are either a believer, doubter or an unbeliever. A believer is spiritually conscious of the effectiveness of the power of God, he doesn’t needs prove to believe and demonstrate his or her victory in Christ, they are governed by the word of God because truth doesn’t need evidence. . A doubter seek for evidence to believe, while an unbeliever looks for reasons not to believe. A doubter never go forward in life, he’s always looking for reasons to be sure, and if they aren’t sure, they don’t step out doing what they feel called to do and as such, they enjoy the comfort Zone. The doubter is a perfectionist and aren’t always perfect. They wait for the spectacular experience and lose sight of golden opportunities. Delay is always their common experience because they trust in their own ability.
When you do things you feel you can do and avoid the ones you think you can’t do, fear is deciding your action, if you feel you can do what you think you can’t do faith is deciding your action– Evang. AlEf Iyayomwangbe.
