Your Evidence

Your Evidence – Pastor Chris

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… (Hebrews 11:1 AMP).

In essence, the above definition of faith means that you know something you’ve hoped for is real, though it’s not visible in the physical realm. Faith isn’t just an idea or an opinion; it’s a substance, the evidence of unseen realities. Have you ever seen a snake’s tracks? Being a creature without limbs, a snake slithers on the ground, leaving sinuous prints on the path it treads. Now, the snake-track isn’t just an idea or an opinion, but the “evidence” of the presence of the creeping creature. Evidence is proof of something; it can be made available. Faith, therefore, is the evidence. And if it’s the evidence, then there’s something it represents.

If you had a property situated somewhere and I asked you, “How can I be sure you actually own the property?” you wouldn’t move it from wherever it is to show me; that wouldn’t be possible. What you’d simply do is to produce the title-deed. Faith is the “title-deed” (Hebrews 11:1 AMP). You may not even have been to the property yourself, but the title-deed is your evidence that it is yours. You’re so sure of that document, you can even use it as a collateral. That’s what faith is.

If the devil tries to question your right to prosperity, divine health or any of your blessings, privileges and inheritance in Christ, pull out your evidence—the title-deed. Your faith in the Word of God is your title-deed. Declare with confidence what the Word of God says: “…all things are yours” (1 Corinthians 3:21).

The evidence of your right to divine health is the Word. Romans 8:11 says, “And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you” (NIV). 3 John 1:2: “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

PRAYER:

Dear Father, thank you for inspiring faith in me through your Word. My faith is the victory that overcomes the world, for with it, I see only pictures of health, prosperity, victory, and possibility. By faith in the Word, I consciously take advantage of what you’ve freely given to me; thus, my life is characterized by the beautiful and glorious realities of the Gospel, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
