The greatest event in the life of a person is the new birth experience that transforms them into a Believer. It is that experience that changes everything in your life. Nothing remains the same. Actually, the Lord had ordained that day, and the enemy was fighting against you over time because he did not want to lose you to the Kingdom. Your belief led to your acceptance, which leads to your dependence upon Jesus, opened the door to more than you could ever imagine or have knowledge of. It is a package that is full and contains everything that you need, but the enemy uses the element of time to blind and deceive you into thinking that you have not received it all.
Initially, faith has caused us to believe for salvation, but we fail to go beyond that point. When Jesus shed his blood, that sacrifice redeemed us back to be reconciled with the Father. Now we have the supernatural connection and we a reconnected in the spirit. Our Father, our shepherd who watches over us in the natural, has provided for everything that we need to exist in this natural realm. The problem is that we have failed to receive what is needed and deceived into thinking that there is no provision. Is it our lack of faith or knowledge?
The knowledge that we need is in the Word. The enemy fights with everything in his arsenal to keep us ignorant. For instance, he does not want you to read the Word or to meditate the Word because your mind will be renewed from the natural and transformed into the supernatural to receive the thought of God to create an image of truth. Once that image is created in your mind and you can see it, it becomes a possible reality which has the power to change the natural realm and threatens the enemy. Remember the enemy is the prince of the power of the air and he fights you in the natural with deception, distraction, delay, hindrance, misdirection and sabotage to make you think that nothing is happening, Why else would the Father reveal in His Word that “eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, all that God hath prepared, made ready and keeps ready for those who love him.” (I Corinthians 2:9 AMP). If it is made ready, it already exists. If it is kept ready, it is there waiting for you to access it. What is prohibiting the transfer or acceptance?
“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws.” (Daniel 7:25). If you are not reading and meditating the Word, the enemy uses the natural to speak against God, taunting and questioning you whether God is with you. He starts to bombard your thoughts to weaken your faith attempting to recreate his image in your mind to build a stronghold. Envision your faith as a bridge from the natural into the supernatural that whatever you need comes across. Bridges are always in need of repair due to the erosion by the natural elements, specifically time. Time is a natural element created by God who sits in eternity. But the enemy uses time against us. He uses all that was created for us against us as “he is the prince of the power of the air.” (Ephesians 2:2 KJV). As your faith was extended for you to receive what you needed, was there an opening on the bridge created in a moment of doubt or unbelief?
“Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.” (Matthew 13:44 KJV). This scripture describes God’s Kingdom as a field. A field is an uninterrupted space of area which is relative large and spread out. Even though through the new birth, we have found the treasure of everlasting life, but there is more in the field. We have only found a portion and in the excitement of the find, failed to continue with the exploration. It is because we do not know what we are in possession of. The next part of the scripture says that he hides it. What causes us to hide that which is so great? Is it because we think that what has been found is all that there is?
Many packages have been delivered through the Holy Spirit to the Believers. Some have been hit and miss because many were not in a place of understanding and revelation. When you discover the awesome inheritance that is waiting for you to receive and take possession, you will exercise your authority. Usually when packages are shipped in the natural, there is a tracking number issued for you to use to verify receipt or to issue a search. Use your faith to contact the shipper. Inform Him of your identity and your tracking information, which is the blood of Jesus, the redemption price. If the enemy tells you that this is absurd, then that is your indication that you need to follow through. He always tells you the opposite of truth. Always remember that he is after your faith. “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered unto the saints.” (Jude 1:3). He does not want you to exercise your faith for the supernatural to keep you trapped in the natural. Immediate action is needed and required to prevent any further delays. “The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.” (Hebrews 11:1 MSG).
“Now faith is the assurance, the confirmation, the title deed of the things we hope for, being the proof of things we do not see and the conviction of their reality, faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses.” (Hebrews 11:1 AMP).
