The Facts Of Faith
The Bible defined Faith as the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of unseen realities.
A lot of people either misunderstood this definition or wrongly apply it to their situations.
Faith no matter how small –even as small as a mustard seed can move mountains.
Faith says “I may not have seen those things I desire with my optical eyes yet they are very real to me”.
Faith is the proof of the existence of something that is not tangible to the senses. However,
Faith is not the denial of facts…
True faith does not the fact that there is economic meltdown or there is a feeling of pain somewhere in your body rather it denies these facts the ability to detect to it or dominate it. True faith doesn’t mean there is no pain or trouble it rather means “I see the challenges alright but I refused to consider them or give them a thought, I won’t give them the chance to run my life”.
Someone who feels sick and says ‘I am not sick” is actually lying, that is not faith. But if he says “this illness you are not permitted to stay here, you are a stranger here, therefore leave and never return’ is a faith person unleashing his faith, he will get a better result than the pervious example. The reason is because the other instance he was denying the existence of the illness even when he knows it is there while the later instance, he acknowledged the presence of the illness but he declared faith- filled words that the illness needed to hear and obey.

Remember faith is not in the realm of senses; faith goes beyond the realm of the physical- reasoning out issues with your mind.
Faith is when you are feeling ill and someone ministers to you, you are not expected to still lie down on your bed feeling sorry for yourself instead you get up and begin to do what you couldn’t do before.
Faith is knowing and acting as if you have those children you prayed about, you have the job, you got that contract, you have that money. Know it of a surety and act it out.
The God-kind of faith:
This is the type Jesus asked us to have as believers. This kind of faith makes declaration and doesn’t go back to check whether those declarations are working out or not.
God declared light into being at the foundation of the world and light came out of darkness. God saw a chaotic mass that the earth was and spoke orderliness into the earth and the world responded by coming orderly with waters gathering together at a place with set …
