Your Outcome in Life Is Determined By What You Believe in; Faith or Fact

In Christian Bible, 2nd Corinthians 5:7 says: “For we walk by faith: not by sight”. The literal meaning of the above scripture is that we are meant to live our lives; make progress and carry out actions based on faith – which is the ultimate and unseen reality. Don’t live your life on the basis things which you can only see with your physical eyes. “Faith”, which is the ultimate truth, belongs to the spiritual world; while “facts” are only limited to the physical world which we see with our eyes. Faith is superior to, and stronger than fact! Fact is temporal and changeable but faith (truth) is eternal and unchangeable. Even history has shown that fact can become untrue, without divine or supernatural intervention. For example, it was a fact many years ago that malaria had no cure and many people died because of it; but that is no longer true today.

In the past, it was considered a fact that iron could neither fly nor float: but today, heavy tons of iron (in steel form) are floating and flying from one part of the world to the other in the form of ships and aircrafts – carrying both people and cargo wherever they wish to go to. In the past, there were no drugs for the cure of several diseases, but today there are so many types of drugs. If time can alter fact, how much more will your faith in destroy fact – in an instant! Despise all facts, and rather believe in the truth. Your physical experiences or that of other people should not guide your life’s journey. Believe in the ultimate truth about the supernatural ability that God gave man to turn unfavorable circumstances into favorable ones. Allow your faith and belief to guide you towards your God-given destiny.

The scripture in Romans 10: 17, the Bible says that: “The just shall live by faith”. This faith is based on how God sees ease and solutions to every situation and difficulty in this physical world. The scripture didn’t say that the just shall live by experience, night dreams, personal wisdom, skill or expertise! It said that the just shall live by faith! Many people elevate their experience, personal wisdom and skills above faith, ultimate truth and the power of God – to the extent that they constantly dwell in the realm of frustration and dissatisfaction. We have stated that ultimate truth is superior to fact, and a lot of people know that the real battle of a man lies between fact and truth. What is the difference between them? Well, fact is a natural reality which has evidence only to the physical senses; i.e. you can see, hear, feel, smell or touch it. Faith (or truth) on the other hand, is supernatural or spiritual reality; and is not always obvious to the body’s senses, i.e. – you might not be able to sense faith physically – but it’s real. The fact might be that – based on experience and expertise – there would be no hope, but the truth (faith) says: “launch out your heart with hope” and in many instances where faith was strong – the truth prevailed. Allow the truth to prevail in your life!

The Power Of Words

In the book of The Bible, “Hebrews 11 : 3” says: “Through faith we understand that the universe was framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were made from nothing.” Everything you see, handle and feel, came out of words. In fact, words are the most powerful tools in the universe. Kingdoms and nations are ruled by decrees, ordinances or constitutions which are all written in words. Words have always been the greatest weapons at the disposal of every human being who has ever lived on earth. Actually, words are great assets.

Anyone who carefully studies the first book of The Bible (Genesis), will find out that God created the whole universe through the simple use of words. He stood before the land and waters, and declared that they should bring forth an abundance of creatures. He spoke to the firmament as well – and they responded. On and on, God continued declaring words until the whole universe was set up. Most probably, there wouldn’t have been anything in existence if God hadn’t spoken. The method that God used in making everything manifest (physically and spiritually), was by speaking them out. Actually, everything was with Him before creation came into existence. You were created in his image and likeness, therefore you also posses the ability to speak out and create your own world (through the use of your own words).

Words are one of the most important tools you need on earth. Make optimum use of them! Each morning, make it a habit to speak into the day – those things you desire to achieve in future. You ought to always speak positively and declare the right words which will weigh more in the spirit world than in the physical world. All things (visible and invisible) have their foundations in the almighty power – God; for without him, nothing would have been created. If words, which  have spiritual power in them, cease to exist, then all things will disintegrate, become empty and void of any meaningful substance.

In the book of Matthew 8 : 8, a centurion made a remarkable statement which explained the powerful effect of words. He said, “I am not worthy that thou [Jesus] come under my roof, but speak the words only and my servant shall be healed.” A careful study of The Bible – all through – reveals that words have no respect for a barrier like distance: distance cannot prevent words from exhibiting the effects of their inherent latent power. Words are so powerful: that’s why you must make your thoughts, actions and comments in alignment with God’s belief and words. Jesus said, “The words I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life.” Words are spirit! Speak the words of God, act, and the spirit of God will be released to confirm the reality your spoken words by physically making a manifestation of that which you desire.
