That’s not to say that all the things we do are bad, some may be good, but are they the best that God has for you?
I’ve heard it said by many preachers that good is the biggest enemy of best.
God wants the best for us so we can become men and women of faith.
What is faith?
Hebrews 11:1 in the Amplified Bible is very clear, Now Faith is the assurance the confirmation, the title deed of things hoped for, being the proof of things we do not see and the conviction of their reality, faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to our senses.
When I wrote this scripture down, the Lord had me break it down and expand it even more to read it this way.
“Now faith (not yesterdays, not tomorrows, but today, now, this very second right here where you are sitting)
It is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) (it’s ours we own it free and clear, there are no leans on it we have the right to it)
Of things we hope for, (Bible believing hope is not wishy washy, in the Greek it is the word elpis, which means, confident expectation with a sure basis)
Being the proof of things we do not see, (we do not have to see something to have faith in it. You have faith that when you sit down in a chair it will hold you up.)
And the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to our senses] (we are to call those things that are not as though they were Romans 4:17).
That is Bible believing faith, our circumstances should not rule us; we should and must rule them.
As you dig deeper into faith you have to look at the Greek word for it,
pistis, Strong’s says this, it’s a conviction, confidence, trust, belief, reliance, trust worthiness and persuasion.
Our God is trust worthy, what He says He will do, He will do.
In the Spirit Filled Bible’s word wealth it says this, In the New Testament, faith is to be a divinely implanted principle of inward confidence. Faith must come from within.
You receive a prophetic word over your life, what do you do with it?
I’ve heard people of faith say, “I know in my knower” your knower is that inner man that is so filled with the Spirit of God and the Word of God, that You get a witness that this is truth.
To receive the vision you must first believe it.
You must know in your knower, that against all odds that what the Bible says is true and will come to pass.
We may not always act like it, but we are being changed from moment to moment, from challenge to challenge. We are being changed into the image of Christ. “He will do the work in me”,
Philippians 1:6 says, “being confident of this very thing that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
