TEXT: 2 Cor 4:13
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak
Faith is the spiritual sense of perception of the new creature, who is born of God. By it, we perceive spiritual realities and as such are able to operate in the realm of divinity wherein lies our dominion. Now, beyond perceiving the realm of the spirit is the ability to superimpose the realities in the spirit on our physical experience. To achieve this, we must understand and operate by the Spirit of faith.
The Spirit of Faith refers to the vital principle or the essence of faith. This refers to the response of the human Spirit to the Word of God. It is done by speaking as a result of our believing. You must strongly believe in the word of God and let it saturate your heart so much that it pours out of your mouth like an eruption of volcano.
This is how it works. Take the word of God that declares your victory, contemplate on it fervently. Keep on muttering it to yourself. Fix your inner eyes of faith fervently on it. After a while you’d feel a confidence and joy based on that scripture rising within you. Keep gazing till the consciousness of God’s word drowns the consciousness of the enemy’s activities in your heart. Then speak!
Keep speaking, declaring the decree that has gone forth in God’s word concerning you. As you do so, you are unleashing the spirit or the force of faith. The devil cannot withstand it. The Lord assures us that if we withstand him steadfastly in faith he’d flee. So whenever the devil comes up against you, don’t fear, he’s only hoping you did not know your right. All you need to do is to sufficiently clear his doubts by firmly unleashing the spirit of faith and he’d flee from you (James 4:7, 1Pet 5:9). One thing is certain, Faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Determine this year to walk by faith and not by sight and you’d do exploits, marching from victory to victory
LET US PRAY
