NOW FAITH IS


NOW FAITH IS

Hebrews 11:1-3 (NKJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. 3 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.

Our God is a NOW God.  He knows the past and the future, but He is a now God.  All that He is doing is in the now, because our God is a God of faith.  This is the way that God sees us also.  He sees us healed now.  He sees us set free now.  And this is the way that God wants us to see ourselves: through His Word.  He wants us to see it done now.  Not tomorrow.  Not in the sweet by-and-by.  NOW!

Faith in the now gives substance to the things that we hope for.  If we always see it as future, than it is still in the hope realm, because hope is not substance.  Let me show you what I mean.  The Bible declares that I am righteous now, because of what Jesus has done on the cross.  Look at what it says in 1 Corinthians 1:30: “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God–and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.”  It does not say we are going to be.  It says we have it now!

When we start seeing the Word of God as a NOW book, it will change everything for us.  This verse alone shows us four things that we have now.  Because of Jesus, we now have wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption.

So today, start talking NOW.  Start saying, “By His stripes, I am healed!”  Start saying, “I have the mind of Christ!”  Start declaring over yourself what you have, and start seeing the Word of God come alive inside of you, and then manifesting on the outside.  “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

CONFESSION: I declare today, that I am a NOW person.  If God’s Word states that I have something, then I am going to speak it over myself.  My Father is a NOW God, and I, as His child, am going to imitate Him.
