The faith life | Part 2
About this episode
God wants to have a relationship with you; for you to establish it you have to have a post; a discipline of prayer. It is where you invite God into your affairs, where a portal opens for you for God's interaction with your issues.
The spiritual world and the physical world respect each other. God never does anything on earth unless man invites Him to. He can do anything, however; He has restricted Himself from interfering with man's affairs until somebody requests Him.
Until you see what God has spoken to you, you should not leave that place of prayer. You need to move from the level of hearing God's voice to the point of seeing; that is called faith. As long as you can see it, it is yours.
Sometimes it takes a while for you to begin to see. Most of the time it is because of the flesh; the carnal nature. Carnal Christians are not necessarily sinners but are people led by the flesh; they are constantly fearful, worried, anxious, and troubled because they live by what they see. Their motivation for prayer is fear and not faith.
The faith life is living by what you hear from God; by what He says. Not by what you see, hear, or feel. You have to pray until you can see. That seeing is conceiving what you believe for. The angel told Mary, "the Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the most high will overshadow you." Just as Mary conceived of the Holy Spirit; all that God is going to do in your life, you must conceive by the Holy Spirit.
Just like Mary; it begins with us wondering "how shall it be" because we do not have what we need or what it takes; to the place of saying "let it be unto me according to your word. The moment Mary declared that the Holy Spirit took over and she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
