Highly Developed Faith for Quick Manifestations (Part 1)
Hebrews 11:6- ‘But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him’.
Faith is a bridge that connects the spiritual realm to the physical realm.
Works of faith (actions that are birthed or produced out of faith) strengthen that bridge.
Ephesians 1:3 says that we have been given all spiritual blessing in heavenly places.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,”-Ephesians 1:3(NKJV)
But how do we quickly experience in the natural realm the physical manifestation of what grace has already made available for us in the spirit realm?
It requires highly developed faith.
This is not about delayed or instant gratification, it is about being a living witness of the promises of God. There are Christians all over the world that have struggled in their finances or health for years while other Christians always seem to receive manifestations with a quickness in their finances and every other area of life. Why? Does God bless and favor one person more quickly than another? We know that God, in His infinite love for each of us, is not a respecter of person. Hebrews 4:2 says, “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” Although they have heard the Word and believed it was true, they still didn’t experience the manifestations of it. As Believers, we must understand that when we are highly developed in something, manifestations will develop quickly. Our faith is no different. I encourage you to spend time this week exercising your faith by reading God’s Word. The more you exercise and develop your faith the more you will experience the manifestation of God’s promises.
Let Us Pray
Thank You Lord for the faith that You’ve given me! I choose to exercise it and believe that what Your Word says will come to pass in my life. Father, please show me the areas where I can exercise my faith more. I trust in You and believe I will receive everything in Your Word that I release my faith to take a hold of. It is in Jesus’ name that I pray. Amen.
