- Faith grabs hold of the unseen and considers it to be a fact!
You have the title deed to all that you need from God. He has placed it in your hands. It guarantees you the possession of the things that you are believing and trusting God to do for you.
Paul said that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. The word evidence is translated from the original Greek and means “proof” and “conviction.” Faith is the proof of things we desire from God that we do not yet see, and a strong, firm conviction of their reality.
Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality–faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].
Hebrews 11:1, AMP
Faith grabs hold of the things we do not see–that are not revealed to our natural senses–and counts them to be a fact, a living reality.
Faith grabs hold of that healing you need for your body, regardless of what you may be suffering from: leukemia, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, paralysis, blindness, deafness, muteness, and every condition that exists. Faith considers your healing to be a living reality.
Faith grabs hold of the finances that you need–money to pay your overdue bills, make repairs on your car or house, buy food and clothing–and considers those finances to already be in your possession, to be a living reality and fact, even though you cannot see them and have no idea where they will be coming from.
Once the faith of God is released within you, and you take hold of the things that you need and consider them to be facts, as if you already had them in your possession, then faith will rest upon that fact. It will be settled in your mind. There will be no doubt or striving. You will rest in the fact that you know it will come to pass.
Faith is a fact, but faith is also an act. Knowing that you have already received the things that you have asked God for in prayer, you must put faith into action. If you need healing in your body, then do something that you had been unable to do. Believe that you have received your healing. Whatever your need may be, act as if you have received the answer.
Faith upholds the facts. Faith becomes a strong foundation underneath you that enables you to keep believing, regardless of what your five senses may be telling you. It will take you out of the natural realm and into the spiritual realm. It will bring you to a new dimension. You will be able to see, by the Spirit, the things that you need as a fulfilled reality, regardless of all of the things that would contradict that or say it is not possible.
Say this faith declaration out loud: Faith is the title deed that God has placed in my hands. It guarantees possession of the things that I am requesting of Him and trusting Him to provide for me!
But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6, AMP
Jesus replied, “Have faith in God [constantly]. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!’ and does not doubt in his heart [in God’s unlimited power], but believes that what he says is going to take place, it will be done for him [in accordance with God’s will]. For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer [in accordance with God’s will], believe [with confident trust] that you have received them, and they will be given to you.
Mark 11:22-24, AMP
But now the righteousness of God has been clearly revealed [independently and completely] apart from the Law, though it is [actually] confirmed by the Law and the [words and writings of the] Prophets. This righteousness of God comes through faith in Jesus Christ for all those [Jew or Gentile] who believe [and trust in Him and acknowledge Him as God’s Son]. There is no distinction, since all have sinned and continually fall short of the glory of God,
