Faith has a speed.
Not a speed you can measure in the natural, but one that is always NOW. And faith never stops. Ever.
Faith can supersede natural laws and defy logic to bring about supernatural results in your life, not just once in a while, but every day!
No circumstance, hurdle, setback or enemy can push pause on faith or bring victory to a halt. It cannot be defeated, and it will not quit. Even the gates of hell cannot prevail against us, glory to God!
Sin, doubt, fear, insecurities, unforgiveness, negative words and a lack of the Word in your heart will stop you in your tracks. But make no mistake, faith will keep moving—with or without you.
There’s a flow of faith that we as believers must enter—a speed that is immeasurable by natural law. Here’s how to move at the speed of faith and see victories in your life quicker and closer together than you’ve ever seen before.
1. See Victory in Your Forecast
“But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.” –1 Corinthians 15:57 (AMPC)
When you think about this new year, what are you expecting in your life? If you answered with uncertainty or anything other than “total victory,” it’s time to reprogram your thinking.
No matter where you turn in the Bible, the forecast for your life (when you’re walking in obedience, faith and love) is always victory.
Webster defines victory as “final and complete supremacy.” That means when it’s over, it’s over. There is no more vying for the position of triumph. It is finished. And you have the crown.
You might be thinking, I could use some victory right about now. The good news is that you already have it! First Corinthians 15:57 (AMPC) says, “But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.” That means the victory has already been won—our victory.
Because of Jesus, we are not fighting for a position of victory, we are fighting from a position of victory. But you have to see victory in your forecast no matter what your current circumstance. To see anything else is to lose step with the speed of faith.
To move at the speed of faith, you have to see things the way God does. You have to see victory out in front of you all the time and leave every other option off the table.
2. Expect God’s Promises TODAY
“According to my earnest expectation and my hope….” –Philippians 1:20 (KJV)
To move at the speed of faith, your expectancy has to be in motion as well. That means you can learn to match the speed of your expectancy with the rate of God’s promises. When you do this, nothing can stop your breakthrough!
To move at the speed of faith, you have to believe at the speed of faith, speak at the speed of faith, and receive at the speed of faith.
The lack of an instant manifestation doesn’t indicate the lack of an instant victory. Faith waits in the natural realm for what it knows it already has in the spirit realm.
God’s promises are NOW—TODAY. How do we know? Because in God’s goodness and love, He has provided the means by which to fulfil every desire of our lives: “Believe that ye receive them, AND ye shall have them.” When do we believe? NOW. “I’m not moved by what I see. I’m not moved by what I feel. I’m moved by what I believe. I believe I receive. I take it NOW!”
Mark 11:24 says we are to believe we receive when we pray. When? Now.
To move at the speed of faith and expect God’s promises TODAY, you have to take complete charge over your feelings. Don’t allow anything or anyone to pull you back into the natural, faithless, hopeless realm of defeat. Get over into praise and worship. Come into God’s divine presence, thanking Him because you have believed that you have received—TODAY.
3. Stop Waiting for Someday
“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law.” –Galatians 3:13 (NKJV)
This verse is clear—Christ has already redeemed us from the curse of the law. So, if we are born again, when are we redeemed? Now! Today! Not someday.
Redeemed from what? Sickness, disease, lack, poverty, addiction, depression and anything else that is the opposite of a victorious life.
Since you are redeemed today, you have access to every one of God’s blessings today. Expecting is part of receiving. So as long as you’re waiting for someday, you won’t be expecting His blessings TODAY. You won’t be listening for instruction or correction. You won’t be looking on the horizon for a raincloud as Elisha did when he prayed for rain after a three-year drought.
Ask yourself this:
Why am I waiting for healing… someday?
Why am I believing for financial breakthrough… someday?
Why am I waiting for that miracle in my family… someday?
So many people think their victory is off in the distance somewhere and they’re hoping it will be soon, but they don’t really have confidence in the timing. God isn’t the God of someday. Jesus is the same yesterday, TODAY and forever.
Jesus didn’t tell Jairus to have faith in a minute, to mourn and then have faith, or to wait for victory…someday. He quickly told him to “only believe.” Right then. Right that minute. Why? Because time with faith is critical. It is NOW.
Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) says, “Now faith is….” Faith is now. Not someday. To move at the speed of faith you need to be in the NOW, not in someday.
If someone asks you, “Are you going to receive your healing tonight?” and you say, “I sure hope so,” you’re moving far behind faith. You won’t receive because you’re still out there in someday land.
If you want to move at the speed of faith, you’ve got to get to the place where you can say with all boldness and confidence, “This belongs to me! I know it’s going to come to pass. I can literally see myself with it. I know as well as I know my own name that this is coming to pass. I believe it in my heart, so I say it with my mouth. It’s MINE, NOW! I believe I receive it, NOW!”
Then don’t allow the devil to pressure you out of the NOW back into the future, or worse, to pressure you into beginning to think and say, “Well, I think maybe this is never coming to pass. I’ve lost all hope of ever getting it.” Keep yourself moving at the speed of faith.
When you learn how to move at the speed of faith, whatever you’re believing for in 2021 will come to pass! Every victory is already yours. Keep moving at the speed of faith. It always sees the promise.
