Faith is that universal force that translate the erstwhile invisible to visible. Through faith we understand that this known world was framed by God such that the things that are seen were made of things which were not seen. Heb 11:3.
The visible from the invisible. The tangibles from the in- tangibles and the real from situations and circumstances that certainly are otherwise hopeless.
I know we have said this earlier in one of my previous write up. Looking eyes are many, seeing eyes are few. In the same vein, hearing ears abound but discerning ears are indeed few. However, through the force of faith, the things that are discerned, are also seen and what we see; we attract; and what we attract, we own.
Gen 22: 7 - 8 'But Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said "my father and he said 'here I am, my son". Then, he (Isaac related what the looking eyes saw) said, look, the fire and the wood but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? And Abraham said (hear the response of a man who had seen the invisible) "my son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering. So the two of them went together (emphasis mine).
Beloved, how many of us will speak the same words under similar circumstances. We fret, we carry around the force of fear and in most instances even disperse fear to others where faith had hitherto been operational. If the words of Abraham were spoken in fear, there would have been further questions from Isaac. The force of faith should put a stop to the operations of the spirit of doubt and unbelief; it did for Abraham. It will for you also.
Similarly in Dan 3: 16 - 18, the three Hebrew children while looking at the fierce and flaming fire of destruction spoke with the voice and force of faith. All others looked and saw flaming consuming fire but they saw an air conditioned room of fellowship and prayers - halleluyah.
Beloved, your God, whom you are serving is able to deliver you, from the burning fiery furnace. Learn this - faith do not deny the physicality of danger. It was the burning fiery furnace. To Abraham, it was the demand of God to sacrifice Isaac; Isaac his only son of covenant.
Beloved, the scripture still abounds of many who obtained a good report on account of their continuous expression of faith.
A sister was driving at the highway last weekend when her car developed a problem. Her initial thoughts were stop and tow the vehicle but the force of faith moved in. She started praying by repeatedly saying 'the wonders of the name of Jesus'. Though the car wasn't performing as expected, she continued to declare the name of Jesus over the car. In her words, the car suddenly picked up and took her home safely. She got the miracle because she did not stop the car but kept on declaring through faith - the wonders of the name of Jesus.
Beloved, in Y2013, you can have what you desire. Your expectation shall not be cut off.
Start Now! Dream big dreams! Break up the fallow ground! The yoke of stagnation is broken. The Lord conquered for you hell and death several years ago. The Lion of the tribe of Judah did not prevailed for Himself - He did it for you - you child of God.
This year, you can shape and determine your success stories and testimonies.
What are you waiting for - start Now, begin to walk in your high places.
Shalom and Blessings!!!
