Faith is the way of life for every believer in Christ.

Faith is the master key to open every door.

Faith access every promise of God.

Faith is what is needed to get on the other side of problems and negative circumstances.

Faith is Bible belief only, entirely dependent on the Word of God.

Faith requires we believe the Word of God first, then speak our faith and then we will believe those things we have spoken will come to pass as soon as we have spoken.

Faith has to be maintained because we live in a negative, fear filled world and that requires feeding our faith the Word of God several times daily.

Faith works for us when our conversations, thinking, believing, and action stay in line with our faith, what faith says and agrees with the Word it is already done.

Faith is God’s gift to us and faith grows as we use it daily.

Jesus’ faith worked every time He used it because He let nothing but faith words come out of His mouth.

Let’s examine Jesus’ faith life from these two scriptures in Matthew 21 and Mark 4:

Matthew 21:18-20 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. 19  And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20  And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! KJV

Mark 4:35-41 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. 36  And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. 37  And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. 38  And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? 39  And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40  And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? 41  And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? KJV

So what did the fig tree and the wind and the sea obey?  You might say that it obeyed Jesus words but if examined closely you will find it was Jesus’ faith the wind and sea obeyed.

To make faith work the Word of God has to be converted into faith or things won’t change.  Plenty people speak the Word but nothing happens because they have not yet converted the Word into faith.  The Word has to come in and go through the process that comes out as a force, the force of faith.  Then it is not the person who makes things work but it is faith working because it is beyond human ability what needs to be done, unpaid bills, overdue rent, physical healing needed, etc.  We just put faith to work.

We need the Word of God because faith comes from hearing and hearing by the Word of God but we need to convert the Word to faith, bring the Word to where the Word explodes with faith energy inside of us.  The Word builds us up sufficiently with substance that when we release it with our declaration then the force of faith will do the work for us.  We need to see faith released to go to work for us.

We must see that the wind and the sea obeyed Jesus’ faith and not His words so that we get out of the picture and get faith in the picture and doing the work and not us. Things we speak to obey our faith as well when faith has been converted from the Word into explosive faith energy inside of us and released with words.

Let’s look at another scripture showing us that it is faith that is put to work when we release words that are faith energized:

Luke 17:5-6 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. 6  And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. KJV

It should obey our faith because without faith it is not going to obey you.  Faith has to be built up, energized with the Word of God so that it will obey you.  It’s obeying your faith.

Operating by faith you are operating in the eternal realm where there are spiritual things.  Natural things are controlled by and dependent on spiritual things for their existence.  For example, if your spirit left for Heaven then your body would fall down because the body cannot exist without your spirit.

When Jesus spoke to the fig tree He cut the life of that tree off from its roots.  He cut it off beyond the physical by cutting it off in the spirit. Every physical problem or financial problem must first be cut off in the spirit and then the physical will no longer exist.  Cutting the problem off in the spirit you have conquered it because Satan is not operating in that spirit realm against you because he can’t go to the spirit to tempt you but is limited to what is common to man.  The spirit realm is your realm to use your authority over him.  When we speak to bills, debt, sickness and disease we are going to cut them off in the spirit and once we speak to them in the spirit then we know it will now manifest in the natural realm because the spirit has already been dealt with.  To do this we have to leave the flesh of feelings, emotions, logic, reasoning and five senses for the devil uses what is common to man and he will use these to tell us nothing happened.  He will make us think or feel nothing happened.  We must reject the thoughts and feelings and stick to only what the Word has told us.

Mark 11:23   For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. KJV

Another scripture proving natural things will obey faith is Luke 17:5-6.

Luke 17:5-6 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. 6  And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. KJV

It is going to obey your faith.  God has already done everything He needs to do for us and now we just need to speak words energized with faith and all things will obey us.

The enemy tries to get us to operate as a mere man but we are going to continue to operate in the spirit and spoil his house and take everything he stole from us!  We need to just continue to operate in faith so that our faith continues to develop and like Jesus things will manifest more quickly.  The stronger our faith, the quicker the manifestation.

Jesus told His disciples to go to the other side of the lake but He didn’t say if it doesn’t snow because Jesus had control of all the elements that are in the earth and you have that potential as well and including time.

As we use our faith to go to the other side of problems and negative circumstances we are going to continue to use our faith to develop it and as we do this there are going to be obstacles the enemy is going to try and put in our way.  What is going to get passed the obstacles is using our authority.

We develop our bodies and develop our minds but we need to develop our spirit because it is what is going to lead us.  The Bible tells us those who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.

Jesus and His disciples were going to the other side but a great storm of wind and waves caused the ship to take on water.  What can stop a hurricane or storm or tornado?  Nothing. Nothing natural can stop it.  But we need to remember we are not natural and we can stop it in the spirit.

Watch the sequence in this scripture,

Mark 4:38-39 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? 39  And he arose, rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. KJV

The characteristic of wind is you can’t see it.  Jesus first came after the unseen and then the seen.  So we are first coming after the unseen and cut the thing off from the root.

Everything God has already given us is first spiritual, the tires for our car, the new house, everything, it’s all already there.  Everything according to life and godliness are already there in the spirit realm.

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: KJV

Jesus did not know the woman with the issue of blood was there before she touched him.  So she TOOK her healing, her miracle.  The same is true with us when we need something; we don’t take it from the Lord but from the enemy who is trying to keep us from it and we are going to have to TAKE THEM from him.

For Israel to TAKE Canaan that was occupied with giants they were going to have to TAKE it.

Jesus has TAKEN back everything the devil has stolen from us and now we need to consider it all there in the spirit and so we got to TAKE our stuff back.  God is not holding them.  God has already released them but the devil is blocking the way to them and so we got to have faith that TAKES it and not faith that waits.  Everything God has promised us is in the heavenly realm.   Peace and victory are already ours and they are  there and we must TAKE them.

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:  KJV

1 Corinthians 15:57   But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. KJV

When the devil tells us we are not going to win, we need to tell the devil to shut up and then we are going to TAKE our victory.  We are going to TAKE our victory by faith.

So faith is needed to take everything that God has already given us that’s in the spirit realm and the devil is trying to block us from getting.  The Kingdom of God suffereth violence but the violent TAKE it by force.  We TAKE it by faith.
