FAITH OPERATES IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM!
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).
A Christian must relate with God by faith because without faith he can never please Him. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him; and whose hearts are after Him. God cannot be seen, felt, smelt, tasted and heard by the five senses. Therefore, we cannot relate with God with our human senses except with our spirit. That is why Jesus Christ said in John 4:24, “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” Of course, faith operates in the spiritual realm.
God created man in His image and likeness; therefore, the image and likeness in man is not the physical body, but the spiritual man. This made man to exercise his faith in the spiritual realm; thereby relating with God in the spirit. No wonder the Bible says in Hebrews 11:1 thus, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Though, the spiritual realm in which faith operates is not seen but it is real in the actual sense.
When we talk about God, angels and spiritual beings; although, we do not see them but no one can deny the fact that they are real. As Christians, we believe that whatever God says in His Word is truth and real even though we may not have seen the proof of it physically. God has the power to give life to the dead and called those things which do not exist as though they did (Romans 4:17). We have to relate with God by faith in order to dominate and control the spirit realm. The spirit is the actual realm that controls the physical world we see.
Daily Tip: A Christian needs to relate with God by faith in order to dominate and control the spirit realm of life. Shalom!
Golden Text: And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believe and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak (2 Corinthians 4:13).
