Faith has its roots in the supernatural realm. We have heard a number of people say, “I have Faith for this and that”. What really is Faith? Hebrews 11: 1 gives us the raw definition of Faith.
NIV version: Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
New Living Translation Version: Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.
We are spiritual beings and are able to live on earth with our natural body. Faith is not a physical force but a spiritual force that produces physical results. This makes Faith more authentic than anything we actually see on earth.
Unfortunately in this generation, there is little Faith present, Faith has been replaced with fear. People don’t have time for Faith or the supernatural until something beyond them happens. By God’s grace, things will begin to change.
Someone might ask, “why are you always talking about God and spiritual things?” The truth is, without God and the spiritual realm the earth will not be in existence let alone man. Therefore, to understand how to function maximally and fulfill destiny in a grand style, you must know God and have a deep understanding of the spiritual realm.
Faith which is one of the virtues that will be discussed further in the next post is of the spiritual realm. People who believe that they know too much, who ignore the spiritual and focus all their energy in the physical realm run in circles and are never fulfilled. Only the sincere ones will tell the truth, others would pretend to enjoy life but die inside when on their own.
As I have stated before, for anything to happen in the physical realm, it would have taken place spiritually. Only those who are in tune with the spiritual know how to change the course of action thereby enabling or preventing something from happening physically (by the help of God of course). We are to tune our spirit man to receive signals effectively from the spiritual realm.
Those who are of the dark world and engage the spiritual realm, the majority of them can see what will happen but can’t change the course of the event from happening. Some of them depend on fate and even if they try, it can NEVER be as perfect as the one from above (our Heavenly Father) which is above all.
The Story of Israelites and Egyptians
I remember the story of the Israelites and Egyptians (when people of the dark world try to copy God), how God worked wonders in their midst (Exodus chapter 4- 12). The king at the time ordered his magicians to perform the same miracle as Moses and Aaron did by the hands of God. Firstly, God turned Aaron’s rod into a snake and the magicians were able to do the same but Aaron’s rod swallowed them up. Another act that God did was turning the river into blood resulting in the death of fishes in the river. The magicians were able to do the same. God caused frogs to come upon the land of Egypt and the magicians were able to do so.
See the foolishness of man, their magicians were showing off to the king and at the same time causing more havoc in their land but the land of Goshen which is in Egypt where Moses and Aaron belonged to, none of these happened.
God caused the land to be filled with lice but this time, the magicians tried and didn’t succeed. They gave a testimony of this being the finger of God. Why would you go for the counterfeit/ fake when you have easy access to the original? Until you start walking with God, you have no idea what things you will enjoy when you have access to the supernatural and there is always room for growth. Some of such Benefits include peace of mind (because you know God will speak to you before something happens and He will also tell you what to do when you ask), Joy, fulfillment, confidence that no devil can touch your life, divine protection and many more.
To begin in this journey of the supernatural, your salvation has to be authentic. People have been to Heaven and back, they’ve had encounters with Jesus and some have seen hell. All this happened as a result of their spirit man being in tune with the spirit realm. It is our responsibility to develop our spirit man and the first step is by accepting Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, spending more time with God, meditating on His Word, listening to tapes/ messages of men/women of God whose lives have been an example of God’s faithfulness, etc. As we do so, our lives will experience a new beginning.
Faith is a potent force and it has the capacity for growth. The higher your faith is, the easier it becomes to breakthrough in life. Remember that without Faith, it is impossible to please God. The topic of Faith continues in the next post.
