To operate in faith, we have to be so convinced that God is doing what he has spoken that no one can talk you out of it. Circumstances do not matter because you are fully convinced. Chatter and opposition do not matter because you are fully convinced. Unbelief and doubt do not matter because you are fully convinced and persuaded that God has the power to do what he’s promised.
Believe God’s promise to you. Don’t look to the circumstance, only to the promise. Let faith swell on the inside of you cancelling out all doubt. Praise God in the midst and be fully convinced that you will see the promise manifest in your life. This is how to operate in faith.
Abraham, because he knew God, was able to disregard what seemed impossible. Instead of doubting the promise he let his faith override his unbelief. He did not consider why it was impossible he only consider the one who promised him and knew that he was faithful to deliver. To operate in faith, you must focus on God’s promise to you and discount anything that hinders you believing in that promise.
When you look to God and focus on him, then circumstances will fade into the background. Trust God with what he has spoken to you. Believe and consider him faithful to perform his word. In doing so, you, like Abraham and Sarah will reap the benefits of your faith.
The LORD’s promises are pure, like silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times over. -Psalm 12:6
Don’t just pray about what seems logical and possible. Pray HARD about the “impossible” – God will show you that NOTHING nothing nothing is impossible with Him. Ever.
