Winning the Fight of Faith
What is Faith
It is important to let the Scriptures be the basis for our definitions
1. Faith is the visible expression of confidence in God and His Word.
Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”
2. Faith is being sure that what you expect or hope for will happen.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
3. Faith is being fully persuaded that God is able to perform His promises. Faith is being sure that God can make His Word.
What you believe is what you become
“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
God’s word is true.
and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.
If you can think it it’s too small for God; if you can ask it, it’s too small for God.
4. Faith is a confident attitude based on God’s Word.
It is believing and speaking the Promises of God confidently in the face of negativity.
But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes; and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying: “The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land. If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’ Only do not rebel against the Lord, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them.”
Things you need to know to win the fight of faith?
Faith is based on principle.
Faith functions according to knowledge. What you know undergirds and activates your faith.
1. Know that the realm of the spirit is superior to the realm of the natural. Everything in the natural realm can be altered, changed or controlled from the Spirit realm.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Now the word create is the word “Bara”, it means to create out of nothing
So the natural realm is subject to the spiritual realm.
In the realm of the spirit time is not a factor.
The realm of the spirit is superior to the realm of the natural.
John 4:24(NKJV )
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
2. Know that the Word of God is Law in the realm of the Spirit.
When He assigned to the sea its limit,
So that the waters would not transgress His command,
When He marked out the foundations of the earth,
When I fixed My limit for it, And set bars and doors; When I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther,
And here your proud waves must stop!’
