For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. (2 Corinthians 1:20 KJV)
The promises of God are accessed by faith, the believer only lays hold on all Calvary has established for him by his own faith. However we live in a world where life itself is a probability, a world where every promise is a probability; marriages end in courts, love ends in hate, trust ends in distrust; a characteristic of the fallen world in which the believer has no part in as he has been called into a definite, sure inheritance, reserved in heaven and built on Christ.
Real faith then, is a surety for blessing. It is a sign that satisfies and certifies divine intervention because it meets the condition for divine manifestation, being pleasing unto God. Nevertheless, how often do we see more and more believers understand petition to be a probability, because of the – if it be His will syndrome! I’ll marry if it’s God’s will, I’ll pass the interview if it’s God will, and to this end, many have denied themselves the glory of God. The inherent glory of God is not in a “yes and no”,it is always a “yes and amen”. The will of God will always be yes in Him as it was with Jesus while He walked the earth. “Yes” here means surely while “amen” means verily or so be it. Our faith hence must speak with the surely and verily tone.
The surely and verily mentality is an expression of faith that speaks based on the finished work because nothing threatens what it believes. Many think they are being humble as taught by religion, when they boldly declare the will of God as a mystery and how He is so big and incomprehensible compared to our tiny knowledge. But this is a mere empty religious lie. How can you create people that you don’t want compared to you? Apart from the fact that we are created in God’s image, it’s foolish to have faith that is “yes and no” in nature. It is alien for faith to speak probability, faith is not the probability of substance or the probable evidence of faith.
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth(Mark 9:23 KJV). Another translation says, Jesus said to him, “As far as possibilities go, everything is possible for the person who believes. (Mark 9:23 Wuest Expanded Translation)
You see the faith of God says – if you can believe it, I will do it, not I will probably do it. How many times have you heard believers use a probable statement for what they once believed in prayer? Oh, how I wish you see that there is no limit to what you believe, God is faithful to deliver what we asked believing in prayer. The ultimate truth about a faith filled petition is that draws a superabundant manifestation power to its title deeds, rather than staying in the realm of doubts, it delivers the more than enough;
Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the action of His power that is at work within us, is able to carry out His purpose and do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams.(Ephesians 3:20 AMP)
Pray in faith, stay in faith, plow in hope, don’t allow doubts and the alien culture of this world shake you off the substance of your faith. Don’t practice the – if it be Thy will culture, walk by faith and not by sight.
Rhema Word: If it be Thy will- is not faith, hence it doesn’t please God nor attract manifestation.
Confession: I am a child of faith, I am full of faith, I walk by faith, I live by faith, I believe therefore I speak, nothing shall be impossible to me because I believe. I have super abundant manifestation according to my faith because of Your power that dwells in me in Jesus’ name.
