Increased Faith Equals Increased Favor
If I can get you to believe to have more faith in Christ and what He accomplished, then you will see more and more encounters of miracles, signs and wonders. Increased faith equals increased favor.
More Breakthroughs and overcoming power will begin to manifest. Healing will manifest, joy, peace, love, unity and all that the Kingdom of God consists of!
MUSTARD SEED OF FAITH
If you have a mustard seed of faith you can move mountains. I want you to see the flip side of what Jesus was actually saying.
MATTHEW 17:20 He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [ that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
When we are not seeing things manifest, it may not be that we aren’t declaring, or that we aren’t asking, it may just be that we aren’t believing. The kind of believing that is a knowing and trusting with your whole being. Words of doubt seem to be easier to accept then the word of faith when the circumstance seems great.
But, today if i can get you to believe that He is your restoration, your forgiveness, your healing, your sanctification, your righteousness, without you having to be righteous, or sanctified or forgiven, then your experience with Him will manifest righteousness, sanctification, forgiveness, healing in your life.
Jesus the righteous one, the sanctified one, finished it and sanctified you before you even knew about it.
1 COR 1:30 says “But it is from Him that you have your life in Christ Jesus, Whom God made our Wisdom from God, [revealed to us a knowledge of the divine plan of salvation previously hidden, manifesting itself as] our Righteousness [thus making us upright and putting us in right standing with God], and our Consecration [making us pure and holy], and our Redemption [providing our ransom from eternal penalty for sin].
We are now born into a new covenant where you are restored and reconciled unto God, you are healed, you are restored, you are forgiven!
Rom 5:6-17 AMP
The old creature has passed away with Christ and we have risen into life!
When we receive the revelation of Jesus is the first step, we wake up to the knowledge that He saved us! But sometimes even though we became a new creature we tend to keep the old sin nature habits. This does not change our salvation, but it does effect our lives and has consequences.
Jesus is not coming back to die for your sins again, it is done.
Your effort to be saved through doing something causes you to come out of resting in him. It brings you out of grace and into bondage to think you have to do something to receive His saving grace. Paul said, do not go back into bondage of the law of sin and death, for you are under a new law, the law of the Spirit of Life!
Gal 5:1-4 IN [this] freedom Christ has made us free [and completely liberated us]; stand fast then, and do not be hampered and held ensnared and submit again to a yoke of slavery [which you have once put off].
Notice, it is I, Paul, who tells you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no profit (advantage, avail) to you [ for if you distrust Him, you can gain nothing from Him].
I once more protest and testify to every man who receives circumcision that he is under obligation and bound to practice the whole of the Law and its ordinances.
If you seek to be justified and declared righteous and to be given a right standing with God through the Law, you are brought to nothing and so separated (severed) from Christ. You have fallen away from grace (from God’s gracious favor and unmerited blessing.
Believing that He is your forgiveness, that He is your righteousness, He is your healing, you can begin to take captive the thoughts that say you are not worthy or you are not forgiven, and begin living with confidence that He bore your guilt and He bore your shame.
Guilt – means you acknowledge you have done wrong
Shame – means there is something telling you that you are not good enough, you are not worthy, you are a mistake and can never be anything or be successful.
You are worthy, you are so worthy! Jesus died for you to take away the sin nature that Adam brought into the world and now you have a new nature that lives with all that Christ is!
You have to believe this, you have to believe you are worthy! You are so worthy! If you have been awakened to believe in salvation then you are as worthy as Christ is!
You are not the tail, you have been made the head!
You are no longer a sinner You are a SAINT ruling and reigning with Christ as joint heirs with God!
He took it all away! We don’t need to wait for the spotless bride as the bride is already spotless! Do not look according to the flesh but according to the spirit, the spirit that has been reconciled unto God!
The spirit that lives according to life! That is why Paul’s letters were really telling all the church that when there are issues in the church, they are looking at the flesh or the earthly realm and not looking upon Christ the body!
1 John 2:27 But as for you, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which you received from Him abides [ permanently] in you; [so] then you have no need that anyone should instruct you. But just as His anointing teaches you concerning everything and is true and is no falsehood, so you must abide in (live in, never depart from) Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him], just as [His anointing] has taught you [to do
Say this: I am righteous! I am forgiven! I am healing! I am love! I am worthy! I am worthy! I am anointed!
The enemy would love for you to stay in your shame! Shake off the shame, today is a new day, today is a new season, do not let yesterday keep you in bondage! Don’t let what someone else did even days, months or years ago keep you from moving into your destiny! God has great plans for you and they are all good plans!
