Your walk with God is contingent upon your faith in God. No man has seen God at any time, (“you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live” Exodus 33:20) yet we believe and confess through faith that He is God, He exists and He rewards those who diligently seek Him.
The late Smith Wigglesworth, God’s Apostle of Faith, performed many healing miracles based upon the principles of God’s word and his F.A.I.T.H. Confessions. His ministry is summed up in his own words: “First, read the Word of God. Second, consume the Word of God until it consumes you. Third, believe the Word of God. Fourth, act on the word”. “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). “Also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead!” (James 2:7) This means you must “Ignite your faith!” God told Habakkuk to write the vision and make it plain so that others who read it may understand it with ease. It was very important that Habakkuk put his faith in action by legibly writing out the vision that God revealed to him, for the vision is yet for an appointed time (Habakkuk 2:2-3 Paraphrased). When you make F.A.I.T.H. Confessions, know that God will manifest them at His appointed time.
What Is Faith?
Faith is the substance of things hoped for that you do not see with the physical eye but believe that it’s there. Faith is, seeing it before you see it! When you call those things that are not as though they were and make F.A.I.T.H. Confessions, you apply the spiritual principle of God’s Word that He is obligated to fulfill. “The word of the Lord came to me: “What do you see, Jeremiah?” “I see the branch of an almond tree” I replied. Then said the Lord to me, “You have seen correctly: for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.” (Jeremiah 1:11-12)
By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaks. By faith Enoch was transformed that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had taken him: in other words, Enoch did not experience a physical death. Before his transformation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by that which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after received for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing where he went. Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised (Hebrews 11:4-11).
Faith is not based on what you see but what God said. Make these F.A.I.T.H. Confessions on a daily basis as you spend your time with the Lord and I decree and declare everything you have spoken through faith according to the word of God shall manifest itself in your life at God’s appointed time.
