“And He said to her, ‘Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.” Mark 5:34
There is nothing you want that you cannot get with faith. Many times we are waiting for God to do it instead of taking possession of it with our faith. God is able to do anything for us, but simply hoping that He will do it is not good enough, we must receive from Him with our faith.
Faith must produce action: faith moves you to speak and to act, and it moves you to pray. Faith gives you a vision of what you desire: the woman saw herself getting healed as soon as she touched the clothes of Jesus, and that’s what happened. You must see it and expect it to happen just as you have seen it! Until you have seen it with the eyes of faith, and align your thoughts and actions with what you have seen, it won’t be yours except by God’s mercies.
When you pray and believe for money, start seeing it coming and start calling it forth; see yourself in possession of it, see your new account balance; see the alert on your phone; see yourself using it! When you pray for healing see yourself healed! See yourself walking, working and fit. Abraham didn’t just go to sacrifice Isaac, he first saw God raising him from the dead so he moved in faith to sacrifice him. Faith is seeing it; faith is thinking it; and faith is having it. God is a rewarded of them that seek Him so don’t seek Him without seeing your reward. Make use of your faith now!
