The Faith Walk
Have you ever wondered why God put faith as a requirement for receiving from Him? It seem unnatural. It has made blessings seem unattainable. It seems to put them just beyond our reach. Remember man was created in God's image (Genesis 1:26), a spirit being. We were created to walk with God, who is a Spirit (John 4:24). It is the faith realm. It is the realm of the one "Who calleth those things that be not as though they were" (Romans 4:17). When man died spiritually, he became alienated from God. He ceased to live in the spirit. He became separated from God's ability and began to walk in the flesh. According to Roman 8:5-7, "The mind of the flesh is enmity against God." It is this mind that lives according to the five senses. Living by faith is living in the realm of the Spirit. Are you recieving from God by faith or by your own ability through the five senses?
