Faith is not only the most important ingredient for you to enter the spirit realm, it is the one thing that you need to operate therein. In fact, 1 John 5:4 says faith is the victory in the spirit realm.
You will never understand the operation of faith until you understand the operational principles of the spirit realm. This is so since faith never deals with the physical realm but with the spirit realm. FAITH IS THE VICTORY! Faith is not the battle; it is the victory. The battle ground is a different ground entirely from the victory ground. Faith means you have won; it is standing on the plane of possession. Someone has rightly said that believing is not faith, but believing is taking an action while faith is the result of the action.
When you tune a radio and the receiver set to locate a station, you are in a process of searching, but immediately you locate the station you cease searching. You have what you want. That is like faith. It is arriving at a desired destination. Believing on the other hand is acting on the Word of God. Faith is allowing the Word of God to take over.
Hebrews 11:1 says faith is two things: ASSURANCE and EVIDENCE. Faith is not the battle. Faith is ‘having won the battle’ – it is the victory! Faith is not struggling; it is the assurance. The battle of faith is a battle against our reasons, thoughts and imaginations that proceed from our not-yet-renewed minds. When that battle is won, then faith is the assurance that you have of the answer. Faith is reaching forth into the spirit realm and bringing the realities there into the physical realm. Faith can do this because it sees those things.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank you for the provision of faith. I receive a physical manifestation of all won victories in Jesus’ name. Amen!
