Straight From The Heart – How Does Faith Work?
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (physically sensed).
Most if not all of us were taught as children to “bless our food” before eating. This blessing really was giving thanks for the food that we were about to receive. Before any morsel hit our lips we were thankful for it. Before the flavor hit a taste bud we were thankful for it. In our mind we saw ourselves enjoying that meal. We also knew that it was only a matter of time before it would come to pass. This is the way same way faith works.
Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”
The bible says that man does not live by bread alone but every word/promise of God. That means that the promises of God are a meal that has been prepared for us. It is set before us on the plate of our imaginations. We have to learn to give God thanks for the meal of His promises before our senses touch them. I invite you today to eat a well balanced meal: a main course of holiness, a side of healing, a side of prosperity, smothered in some praise gravy, and sprinkled with the hot sauce of joy.
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.
In your heart believe you receive it and you will have it.
