FAITH – THE LANGUAGE OF THE SPIRIT

Feb 11, 2024

God’s help comes to us in the form of His Word; therefore, every time we do not read God’s Word, we are robbing ourselves.

We should always ensure that our actions do not contradict our faith because faith without actions is dead. (James 2:17).

Genesis 1:26, 28

God gave the spirit of man which is His image, dominion over the sea, air, and the earth.

Genesis 2:7

The contact between the spirit and the body of man brought forth the soul.

Man is a spirit, having a soul and living in a body; the body gives him permission to function on earth while the spirit gives him permission to function in the spirit world.

Man is the only creature with the legal right to operate both in the spirit and natural realm and if God wants to do anything here on earth, He goes through man.

Genesis 3

Before man fell, he was living by his spirit, living by faith, from the inside-out, not controlled by external information but by information from within his spirit which is the image of God.

However; when man fell, his identity was lost; he stopped living by his spirit (faith) and started living by his senses. He became self-conscious.

Remember God’s greatest investment in a man is His image and that is what the devil was targeting; he went after man because he was God’s representative on earth.

Romans 3.23

Before man fell, he was conscious of God’s glory and after the fall, he became conscious of himself. That is why the most dangerous enemy is not the devil but “I” (self). John 3:30

Remember God is a spirit and when He wants to do something with a man, He contacts his spirit because man’s true identity is locked up in his spirit (John 4:24, John 1.12-13 AMP, 2 Peter 1:3).

The attack on man In the Garden of Eden was aimed at the spirit because the devil knew that once he attacked the spirit, all other things would be disconnected. So for God to also fix man, He had to deal with his spirit.

Hebrews 11.6 – But without faith it is impossible to please Him….

Faith is the language of the spirit and it is a must if we want to deal with God because He is a spirit.

All the business for example; healing, deliverance, promotion, breakthrough, etc., are done in the spirit and because it is a spiritual affair, we must engage faith.

If we, like God, want to solve problems and have permanent results; we must operate in the spirit.

Hebrews 11.6 …. For he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Faith doesn’t focus on things; it focuses on God. It is after we have sought Him that He rewards us with the things.

Hebrews 12:2

You should never take out eyes off Jesus because He doesn’t change. If you want anything from Him focus on Him and He will in turn reward you with all you need.

Hebrews 11.1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Evidence means proof for what you do not see; for example, if you want to sell land, you don’t carry the land with you but you just show the title deed as proof that you are the owner of the land.

Faith is the proof (title deed) to the property that you are yet to manifest in the physical. You hold on to that evidence until you possess it. But before it is manifested in the physical, it must be first seen in the spiritual. (2 Corinthians 4.18)

Mark.11.24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Having comes after receiving; you must receive it by faith before you see it physically.

When you have received something in the spirit, there comes a knowing in your spirit that it is done; that is the definition of faith.

You stay in faith after receiving while waiting to have the physical manifestation of what you received in the spiritual realm.

For example; If you are sick, you don’t deny the fact that you are sick but you confess what the scriptures talk about healing even when it has not yet manifested in the physical. 

You must circulate your mind with the Word of God that deals with your area of concern before you engage God in prayer.

Romans 10:17

Hearing of the Word of God is a present continuous tense; you must hear over and over again until faith is released in your spirit.

The moment the Word is assimilated in your spirit, you will eventually see the evidence and experience the results you are believing God for in physical dimension.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
