Recently the Lord has been stirring and challenging my faith to grow to greater depth, He's been challenging me to increase my faith, because the faith I operated in this past season will not do for what's coming next. This is a word for the Body of Christ as a whole, The Lord is calling His Bride to operate in a greater place of faith then ever before. Faith is more than just trusting and believing God. Faith is a realm in God He desires for His people to live in, move in, and operate from. Faith is the realm in which God dwells. Hebrews 11:6 (TPT) says, "And without faith living within us it wold be impossible to please God. For we come to God in faith knowing that he is real and that he rewards the faith of those who passionately him." When it's talking about pleasing God, it's not so much about being wrong or right. When you break down the word to the Hebew and Greek it's about coming into agreement. Pleasing in the Greek is euarestos which means, well pleasing, acceptable, fully agreeable. Faith causes us to come into agreement with the Lord, which gives us access to the supernautral Faith is the spiritual substance we need to do what the Lord has called us to do. More than ever a line is being drawn, Faith is marking those who choose to live a lifestyle of radical faith, and display the power of faith. .
As I was reading through Hebrews 11 recently, the chapter of faith, this phrase kept sticking out to me...by faith. Hebrews 11 is the chapter where the writer reminds us of the power of bold faith. The writer shares how faith empowers us to see what's in the invisible realm and bring it into our now. The writer depicts how faith moved Abel to give an acceptable sacrifice, faith translated Enoch straight to heaven, faith opened Noah's heart to recieve revelation and warnings of things to come, faith motivated Abraham to obey God's call, and so forth. Faith has a testimony. Faith is more than just an act of trusting God. When we come into agreement with faith, it activates the supernatural and gives us access to the glory realm where God dwells. Faith is a realm of the spirit. The enemy constantly contends for your faith because he doesn't want you to access the faith realm.
There is no secret formula to doing great things for the Lord, but there is a pattern Heaven responds to. Heaven responds to faith, it is the currency of the Kingdom of God. In 2019 the Lord is calling the Body of Christ higher. There are greater realms, greater supernatural experiences, greater demonstrations, and greater maniifestations we have no grid for the Lord desires to release. Faith releases the demonstration and manifestation of the power of God. You can't access the supernatural by logic, it requires us having a transformed and renewed mind to percieve the supernatural.
Hebrews 11:1 (TPT) says, "Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen." Faith is a substance that can only be seen with eyes of faith. In Ephesians 1: 18 (TPT) Paul declares, "I pray the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of his calling." The heroes of faith in the Bible were able to display the power of faith, because the eyes of their understanding had been illuminated. Illumination enabled them to see the unseen, which caused them to walk by faith. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:7 (TPT), "For we live by faith, not by what we see with our eyes." The faith heroes were able to walk in faith because the saw faith. When we can see faith and pull it into our now, we can be lead and directed by it. The substance of faith empowers. It puts His super on our natural. Faith releases the manifestation of the God/glory realm.
In 2019 there's a realm of the supernatural the Body of Christ is going to experience in which they've not experience before. Creative miracles and manifestations we have no grid for are getting ready to take place. It's important not reject what doesn't look like the God we are used to or familiar with. The Lord has called you to do great and mighty things. It won't come without a fight, but faith will empower you to rise above, and overcome. Whatever the Lord has put on your heart for 2019 you shall accomplish it by faith! Faith is the secret (not so secret) weapon that will empower you and enable you. It's moving from the place of trust and confidence to walking in faith. Faith is always on the move, it's a matter of percieving it. 1 Corinthains (TPT) 2:9-10 says, "Things never discovered or heard of before, things beyond our ability to imagine, these are the many things God has instore for his lovers. But God now unveils these profound realities to us by the Spirit." What we mediate on we become. The reality we focus on is the reality we'll live in and operate in and from. Colossians 3:2 (TPT) says, "Yes feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realites, and not the distractions of the natural realm." Faith is a heavenly realm and reality the Lord doesn't want you to just believe in, but inhabit. When you inhabit faith you can walk in the power of faith. Faith is a power that will release the miraclous and the supernatural in your life.
Without faith you will not be able to accomplish the great things and opportunities God has ordained for you in 2019. Daniel 11:32 proclaims, "But the people that know their God shall be strong and do exploits." Exploits are defined as bold and daring feats (merriam-webster.com). I prophesy in 2019 that by faith, you shall do all that God has prepared and ordained for you.
