“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
Without faith it is absolutely impossible to please God because the operation of His Kingdom requires it. In fact, you can’t be a son of God without it; “…We are sons of God through faith.” (Galatians 3:26) Whether you believe it or not, there are two realities we are always simultaneously apart of; the superior invisible realm and the inferior visible realm. The visible realm contains all that we see with our physical eyes and the invisible realm contains all that is Spirit. Hebrews 11:3 says it like this, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” Understanding that everything visible was created from something that is invisible we begin realize that the invisible realm of Spirit is much more powerful. Too often Christians believe more in their circumstances and physical limitations rather than the reality of The God they believe in. Living bound to the physical realm and accepting its powerlessness is inexcusable. We must begin to switch our minds and start living from His realm and reality rather than this physical worlds. The Kingdom of heaven is the true realm that we can choose to live in everyday, a choice made available to us through the blood of Jesus Christ. By faith must make this choice to take our position in our heavenly place right now. Ephesians 2:5-6 tells us "Even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved) and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus."Being seated and grounded in heavenly places is a promised truth that belongs to you everyday. Faith is the anchor that keeps us grounded to that truth. We can actually produce the substance of heaven and bring it into evidence through the faith that we carry. For example; When I have faith for healing in someone’s body and they get healed, heavens substance was the faith and heavens evidence was the healing. Faith is the currency of heaven because it produces its substance on the earth. That's why faith produces healing because there is no sickness in heaven, faith brings what is true in heaven and produces that truth on earth. It takes what is true and brings it as evidence to announce the King and His Kingdom; Kingdom possibilities always overthrow earthly impossibilities.
Through faith we are anchored in the supernatural realm and able to tap into all that it has to offer, the substance of heaven and God Himself upon us. Allow faith to shape your world, not the other way around.
