Faith Your Access To Your Inheritance – By David Ibiyeomie

Heb. 11:1-6 -Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Faith is a spiritual force that commits God’s integrity to make good His promise. This means that if God has said anything to you and you have faith, you have committed His integrity that HE will make happen what HE said and HE cannot lie. Faith is evident and substantial; you have not seen it but you know that it is real. Every good report is a product of faith.
Faith is your access to all your inheritance in Christ. It guarantees your access to every inheritance you have in Christ. Faith is the bridge that connects you to your destination. God has no problem confirming His word; He is only looking for who will trust Him.
The prayer of faith is making decrees or requests to God based on His word with deep conviction and settled assurance.
James 5:13-15 – Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any merry? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
The prayer that must produce result is the prayer of faith. In the kingdom of God, it is not just prayer that makes things work; it is prayer wrapped in faith that produces results. Your prayer must be wrapped in faith for it to produce the desired result.
To pray a prayer of faith, you must first of all locate appropriate scriptures which are in line with your request. This is because God will not respond to any prayer which are not in line with His word. So, when you want to pray, you must locate a scripture or scriptures which are relevant to what you want to ask God for.
Hosea 14:2a – Take with you words, and turn to the LORD:…
Thus, you have to get God’s word and return it back to the Lord because God’s word is Himself. God will hear your prayers when you pray according to His word; not according to your grammar. That is why many people that pray with calculated English do not have result because their prayers are not in line with the word of God.
For instance, if you are looking for a job, the first thing you have to do is to locate an appropriate scripture that has to do with miracle job like Isaiah 3:10:
Isaiah 3:10 -Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
It is not enough to locate a scripture. When you locate a scripture, meditate on it until faith rises in you. Meditation can be compared to incubation in agriculture. Meditate on the scripture until faith is built.
1Tim. 4:15 – Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
Sit with the word of God until the rhema becomes very real to you. A good illustration on meditation is digestion. When you eat food, it has to digest before it nourishes your body. That is how getting the word of God is likened to eating while meditation is likened to digestion. Therefore, the word of God has to settle in your heart before you can produce it.
After meditation, the next step is to open your mouth in prayer because faith is not finished until it is spoken for God to confirm it.
2Cor. 4:13 – We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
Speak and declare what you have seen in God’s word which you have also meditated on and God will not hesitate to confirm it.
After speaking and declaring what you want to see, believe that it is done.
Mark 11:24 – Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
24 For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer [in accordance with God’s will], believe [with confident trust] that you have received them, and they will be given to you. {Amp}
If you want the prayer of faith to work, when you pray for anything, you don’t have to see it before you know that God has answered; you have to know that He has answered before you can see it. If you don’t have faith that God has answered, you cannot see it but the moment you have faith, then you will have what have prayed for.
From today, as you begin to practice the prayer of faith, may all that you request of the Lord in accordance to His word come to pass in your life speedily in the name of Jesus –Amen!!!
God bless you
