Faith

Those who know the Bible realise that the single most important thing in a person's life is faith in God. It is through faith that we please God, and connect with His creative power.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

In simple terms, faith is complete trust or confidence in something, someone or in God. It is also connected to strong belief, doctrines or religion, sometimes based on spiritual conviction, which may sometimes stand outside of proof of one sort or another.

Fascinatingly, the Bible says that this is really only the essential foundational aspect of faith in Christ. With broader appreciation of the text, we can see that God requires us to be creative with faith, to cause things to come into being - that did not exist before. We are to be like our God, to create, heal, renew and transform! 

The path of being supernatural with faith:

Hope: when you hope, you are thinking about something, a desire or outcome. These are seeds that produce another level or creative potential: faith.

Faith is the product of things that have been previously thought about or visualised.

Warning if you’re negative about life and health you will still produce faith only distructive expectation, of failure for example. 

Believe this: God’s creation is alive and responsive to your thoughts, feelings and imagination. Moreover, the scriptures show us that it is also a voice activated universe for which God has made for us to subdue. God has given us authority over the world and everything in it. The sooner we renew our minds from fear and convert to a creative way of thinking the sooner we will find ourselves in line with God’s creative plan for us in the world.

Controversial truth

God’s 'dynamic creation’ which can be affected by positive thinking, and faith are not dependant on faith in Jesus Christ. Occultists, faith healers, miracle workers, governments, pop stars, actors, CEOs, entrepreneurs and pioneers all do this they believe and keep believing until they get the results they hope for. While this has little to do with salvation through Jesus Christ (which is another issue) it is proof that God whether we believe in Him or not has made the world responsive to our thoughts and imagination. So as Christian’s we should be evermore seeking God for purpose, direction and understanding and then start believing things into reality that  bring glory to God.
