FAITH IS ACTION IN PRESENT-HOUR REALITY!
Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full (John 16:24).
Faith is not past, past participle or futuristic but action in the present-hour reality in life. When you pray as a Christian, you do not begin to hope that God will answer your prayers, but believe that what you prayed and asked for, you have already received it in life. The Bible says in the opening text that until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. Faith is action in the present-hour reality; hence, believing that you already receive it in life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that faith is indeed action in the present-hour reality in life. Hence, a life lived devoid of faith in God Almighty is absolutely a life lived in backwardness without destination in life forever.
The Bible gives us a clearer definition of faith in Hebrews 11:1 thus, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” In a nutshell, what it means is that what one hoped for is now his present-hour possession and reality in life. Faith settles every doubt and worry, and puts one on his feet to operate on a divine reality of existence in life. When a Christian operates in faith, he is operating in the same pace and frequency with God in life. Therefore, faith is now and can never give room to procrastination and doubt in life. A life without faith in God is absolutely a life that can never please Jehovah, the Almighty in life forever.
Jesus Christ made it explicitly clear in the Scriptures when He said in Mark 11:24 thus, “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Whenever a Christian prays, his action should be in the preset-hour reality in life. He should learn to believe and receive what he asks for by faith in the Lord in life. By so doing, he completely eliminates doubt and worry from his life and trust more in God. In fact, it is indeed the basic reason why the Holy Scriptures absolutely tells us that without faith it is impossible to please God in life forever (Hebrews 11:6).
Daily Tip: Faith is indeed action in the present-hour reality; hence, asking, believing and receiving whatever one requests for without doubts or worries in life forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says (Mark 11:23).
