I just want to share a little about what the Lord has been stirring in my heart and spirit lately. These things are simple but very powerful truths. With all my heart I believe that the saints who are listening to the Holy Spirit’s leading in this hour are going to excel in spirituals like they never have before. I am more excited about this year and the soon coming years than the previous years gone by. Faith right now is paramount more than ever if you are going to be used of God. The Lord is about to use mightily those who are full of faith and the Holy Spirit. Those who have the guts in God to step out and touch other lives will be used to heal the sick, cast out demons, raise the dead, and perform miracles. But it’s not going to be done with “tiny Tim “faith.
In order to operate in the level of faith to do the works of God we need to have spiritual eyesight. The old saying that “seeing is believing” has some truth but the correct order in faith is “Believing is seeing”. When you believe in faith you don’t just see the situation, you see the SOLUTION. Our Father, before he created/ performed the miracle of creation, saw not only the present state of the void but He also saw what He was creating (Genesis 1). Every person who has ever healed the sick, cast out demons, raised the dead, and performed miracles had/has spiritual vision to see in the supernatural. After our Father saw He then spoke. In Romans 4 it says that “He calls those things that are not as though they are.” 2 Cor. 4 says that “we believe therefore we speak.” I’ll add something here and I don’t believe one bit that it detracts from the Word. Because I BELIEVE, therefore I can SEE, so I SPEAK. That’s the Spirit of Faith. That’s the SAME spirit that raised Christ from the dead. That’s the faith that we need to live in everyday if we are to do not only the works of Christ but the Greater Works that He spoke of.
In Hebrews 11 it talks of the early saints who SAW the promises afar off. Even though they did not attain them they still embraced them and then CONFESSED them. They were absolutely persuaded, just like our father Abraham, that what God has said (what the Word says) He is more than able to perform. And He performs these things in and through us. It amazes me how much power we have in our tongue. We got it from our Father. Both life and death are in the power of the tongue. We need to be extra careful how and what we speak because “they that love it… (What they are speaking) will eat the fruit thereof”. The two scriptures that have always stuck with me are Numbers 14 and Job 22. The Lord said in Numbers that “as you have spoken in my hearing so I will do unto you.” Job says also that “I will decree a thing and it will be established unto me.” If we are to do the impossible, or the Greater Works, then let’s imitate our elder brother Jesus by doing what our Father does. Have the eyesight of the Spirit and the Word of God on our lips.
