Life is not always what it seems. What you see or feel is not the whole story.
Many people are wrecks because they try to live without faith. That’s unfortunate because the Scriptures are clear that faith in God is the prerequisite for receiving what you believe, conceive, and release.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours (Mark 11:24).
Faith is the catalyst that makes things happen. It lifts you above the outward evidence of your life and empowers you to bring light out of darkness. Remember, you will receive whatever you believe. If you expect trouble, you will get it. If you trust God and expect Him to work in the midst of your distressing circumstances, sooner or later you will see evidence of His presence.
Life without faith is foolish because life is not always what it seems. What you see or feel is not the whole story. Believe that things are going to work out. Reject the garbage that discourages you by taking your eyes off God—“You’re never going to own a house. You can’t even pay this rent. How’re you going to afford a mortgage?”—and believe that you are going to make it. Make plans and, by faith, release your dreams by saying: “I know what I see, but I also know what I believe. I’m going to keep believing in my dreams, because all things are possible with God.” Praise Him that you don’t have to live by what you see. Believe in His promises and expect Him to move mountains for you (see Matthew 21:21).
