Faith, Holy Spirit, Spirit led

Faith is a SUBTANTIAL substance and so very precious to God

source: another blog about Jesus

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,” (Hebrews 11:1).

In the recent past when meditating on Hebrews 11:1, I heard the Lord say, “Faith is a substance,” and I said, “Wow! Lord,” and He showed me how when true faith is released it can be seen as having a SUBSTANCE because of its foundation or what it stands on: His Word (which is SUBSTANTIAL).

So powerful, Lord! I love You, so much!

But I didn’t make this other absolutely beautiful and amazing revelatory connection by His Spirit until last night when I once again read and pondered Hebrews 11:1.

I pray you also see this post as a message on how much God loves you, child of God. Oh so much! How much He treasures you and cares about everything concerning you (which is why any lies that cause His children to be prayerless and believe it’s pointless to pray REALLY grieve me like in this post).

This is a beautiful and amazing revelation, the Lord showed me last night…

Our Abba Father can SEE our faith when it’s released.

Let me say it again because it’s so powerful, but for you…

God can see YOUR faith when you release it. In the spirit realm, He can see your faith mix with His Word and your prayers.

Your faith is a tangible and precious thing in God’s kingdom.

Oh Papa God, how You break me with Your beauty in the very best ways of course.

This is the verse He brought to my remembrance as He was showing me the additional way our faith is a substance…

“Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints,” (Revelations 5:8).

So precious to God that in the spirit realm our prayers take on the form of fragrant and beloved incense which He stores in golden bowls in heaven.

I can’t even, Lord. You can SEE our faith. *weeping*

I’ve never seen a Hebrews 11:1 – Revelations 5:8 connection before regarding the magnitude of our faith to God – how powerful, precious, and important our faith is to Him and of course our prayers.

His Word makes it clear faith is extremely important to Him, but this word opened it up for me on a whole other level. How tangible and real faith is in the kingdom of God and why He has SO much to say about faith. Glory to You, alone!

Honestly, faith is how His kingdom runs lest anyone boast.

“Let my prayer be set before You as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice,” (Psalm 141:2). Very prophetic words David penned by inspiration.

Here are some verses about faith for life and health to you. To renew your mind with His Word, the truth…

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith,” (Romans 1:17).

“This is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith,” (1 John 5:4).

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him,” (Hebrews 11:6). IMPOSSIBLE! That one word says so much regarding His kingdom laws and ways regarding faith.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,” (Ephesians 2:8).

“And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven,” (James 5:15).

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord,” (James 1:5-7).

On the surface verse 7 of James 1:5-7 may seem harsh, but I believe He purposely set up His kingdom laws this way – to run on faith – so no one could boast in their works but in Jesus instead who finished the work of the Father.

Answers to prayer are not earned but all by grace through faith. What a Good Father!

And His Word is the provision He made available for all His children to have great mountain moving faith and to crush unbelief:

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God,” (Romans 10:17).

Child of God, your faith is a SUBSTANTIAL and precious substance to God. I pray this post inspires your prayer life for every prayer is precious to God. He cares about everything concerning you.

Faith

A “Love of God” Pondering: What if God Made the Vast Number of Stars Just to Encourage One Man’s Faith?

It’s after midnight, and I took my dog out one last time, late as I often do. I can see a decent amount of stars in my city.

As my fur friend was doing her business, I stared straight up into the sky, my neck back as far as it could go.

In awe of God, I scanned the night sky, spinning slowly to take it all in in childlike wonder, watching my breath float up against the cold for Florida air. It’s 37 right now. Brrrr.

I said, “Thank You, Lord, for letting me live in a place where I could steal moments in my busy life to appreciate the stars.”

Then this questioning thought entered my mind, “Lord, You love us so much. Could it be You made all these stars with Abraham in mind because You foreknew the exact encouragement he’d need for the miracle You needed him to believe You for?”

I don’t believe He answered me with certainty on this matter, but I do wonder if He planted the question in my heart as I stood in wonder and thanksgiving for His gift of stars.

“And behold, the word of the Lord came to him (Abram who becomes Abraham), “This one shall not be your heir.” Then He brought Him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be,” (Gen 15:4-5).

God is practical, of course, and has used the stars to communicate by announcing His One and only Son, Jesus Christ, and filled man with the wisdom needed to use them to navigate the seas and their travels.

But the more I grow in the Lord, the more secure I grow in His great love for me as His child. All the ways He’s cared for me in my life. His loving presence toward me that fills my heart that’s been undeniable.

I strongly suspect that though He had much in mind when He created the stars that it could very well be He made them COUNTLESS just for Abraham whom because he believed God, it was “accounted to him for righteousness,” (Gal 3:6).

This is the love I’ve come to know as His child. A Father who gave His one and only Son knows how to give good gifts to those who ask Him (Matt 7:11).

And what my eyes also see when He brought Abraham outside to look at the stars is this:

Our good Father is always giving us ways to set us up for successful faith that receives. He’s so good He even provides all the encouragement we need. Let us have eyes that see it.

Today, we have His entire inspired Word and Holy Spirit for the faith needed to receive His YES and AMEN promises. Thank You, ABBA Father.

Election Prayers, Prayers for America, Prayers for President Trump

PROPHETIC ENCOURAGEMENT: We walk by faith and the Word, NOT by the giants in the land | Rejection of Electoral Votes Based on Fraud | Remember the Red Sea

We walk by faith and the Word and NOT by the giants in the land.

The enemy never gives up land easily. We are to keep our eyes on God and His Word and His strength and power and not the wicked giants who’ve exalted themselves in the land.

I see that the U.S. Capitol is on Lockdown, Senate and House in Recess.

I would suspect that those who stormed the Capitol building may have been part of the enemies of America planning this to make President Trump supporters look bad. Only the Lord knows. Lord make the truth be known.

Just because giants are in the “land” it’s not time to give up. It’s time to press into the Lord greater than ever, praying prayers of faith, trusting Him to act on our behalf.

We know the wicked are trying to gaslight the American people – calling what is evil good, AKA calling an election based on fraud as votes that represent we the people, thus saying, it is those who OBJECT to the fraud who are the evil ones. As the devil does – inspires his to call what is good evil.

Jesus, we need You. We need the Lion of Judah to right the wrongs in this election. Go forth like a man of war for America, for Your covenant people in America, and our President who won and is for America and You, Lord:

“The Lord will go forth like a warrior,
He will arouse His zeal like a man of war.
He will utter a shout, yes, He will raise a war cry.
He will prevail against His enemies.” – Isaiah 42:13

When we are at a “Red Sea” moment surrounded on every side;
Keep pressing forward for the Lord will turn the tide.
For He is the God who parts the seas;
A path to victory for us ; The demise of our enemies.

To be encouraged, you can also read Numbers 13-14. Those who achieved victory took the Lord for His Word despite the giants in the land, and those who didn’t missed out.
