The status of faith

Faith is evidence and substance. It is a channel to the supernatural – to the prepared things God has for us that are not seen physically. In this post I want to talk about the channel – because you have the ability to determine how “open” your channel is. What I mean by that is faith is dynamic and it has what I call a “status”.

We learn from the Scriptures that there is the measure of faith, dead faith, weak faith, little faith, faith that is mixed with works and now faith. An exercise for you would be to find these different statuses of faith in your Bible.

There is growing faith that Paul mentions in 2 Corinthians 10:15. God expects your faith to grow. As your faith grows your channel to the supernatural grows – that means that it becomes easier and easier to get things from the supernatural or spirit realm manifested in the natural.

You need to be about the business of growing your faith. Well, how do you do that? We discussed in a previous post that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. (Romans 10:17) Hearing the Word of God can come from internet teachings, Bible studies, worship experiences and other encounters with God.

Where I believe it can have a substantial impact in your growth in God is when you hear yourself saying/reading/meditating on the Word. Try it! When  you speak the Word it minimizes distractions and allows you to hear what you are saying.

Here’s how you can start. Go to the internet and search for a topic you need faith in. Maybe you need faith on finances. A good search would be for scriptures on God’s provision. Once you find one, begin to say it, over and over; to the point where you don’t have to look at it. Walk around the house saying it. Say it in the kitchen, family room and car. Say it every time you get a chance. God will begin to speak to you concerning the significance of that verse to your particular situation. He will give you wisdom about how to access the provision that He made available for you in the spirit . . . through faith getting it to manifest in the natural. Try it and see! He says in Psalms to taste and see that He is good. (Psalm 34:8) Let us know how it comes out! We want to hear from you!
