I will be showing you today the three departments of faith, and make sure you start working these three as you move on in this decade.
The three departments of faith:
1. The Law of Faith
2. The Word of Faith
3. The Spirit of Faith
The Law of Faith comes after the Word of Faith is preached. The Law of Faith has three components as well; HEARING, SPEAKING, AND DOING. The word preached under the anointing of the Holy Spirit produces faith in you. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. The word of faith heard will not produce any result until it is spoken and acted upon. Don’t forget, your mouth is the mixer. Anointed teachings of the scriptures bring the word to life! You cannot have faith more than what you have heard and seen from the word of God.
So, you don’t look at another person to determine your faith, just check what you saw when the word came. You must be careful that the devil does not show you wrong things in the presence of God. You must always practice the Law of Faith! HEAR IT, SPEAK IT, AND DO IT.
The Spirit of Faith – 2 Cor. 4:13 “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak,”
“We having the same spirit of faith!” So, in this new decade, don’t let any minister that operates in the spirit of fear lay hands or minister to you. The spirit of faith upon the ministers flows to us through the word they are preaching. You can get the spirit of faith that is upon men. I believe God that this year, the same spirit of faith that is upon me will rest upon you, and it will keep increasing.
You can’t do faith without the Holy Spirit. The spirit of faith requires that you feed it; that is why you pray in the spirit. The strength of your spirit affects the strength of your faith. Faith is not actually the physical effort, it is the strength of the spirit. I always laugh at the people that bypass the spiritual effort for physical effort. Yes, when you pray and groan in the spirit, it will show in your body, but it is not first a physical effort. But when something is deficient in the spirit, people tend to make up for it with the physical. Everything you see physically came from the spiritual.
WHAT ARE YOU CARRYING AROUND, FAITH OR CASH? Cash can’t get you all that you need. Faith is going to get you all you need. So, you must respect faith. Everything you need is provided for in the spirit realm, and your faith is what will get it out of that realm. You must get very strong in building your faith account, and that does not mean you do not build your cash account. As your faith turns into cash, then you begin to save it! Faith turns into cash by what you do. A lot of people of faith are not always men of wisdom, but you must apply wisdom to faith! It is the wisdom of God that guides, instructs, and teaches you how to translate your faith into physical tangibilities.
Understand the principles of faith; the Law, the Word, and the Spirit of Faith, and this decade will be full of testimonies for you. God bless you!
Till next week, go and win with Jesus.
