Now faith is the substance of things 
hoped for, the evidence of things not 
seen (Hebrews 11:1).
saturday 21
To believe is to act your faith; believing is the 
action of faith. Faith itself is the response of the 
human spirit to the Word of God, and that response 
is evidence. When you act your faith (believe), you 
receive and it’s endorsed; you no longer require further 
It’s like the judgment that’s given in a court of 
law on the basis of evidence produced. Once the 
judgment is passed, you don’t have to come again 
with further evidence; the evidence has been accepted 
and that’s why the judgment was made. Likewise, 
when you believe, you’ve judged whatever it is that 
you’ve believed to be true, and as a result, something 
happens: you receive! We don’t believe for nothing; 
the believer is a “haver.”
For example, the Bible says, “He that believeth 
on the Son hath everlasting life…” (John 3:36). When 
you believed in Jesus Christ, you received eternal life: 
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me 
hath everlasting life”  (John 6:47). That’s why John said, 
“These things have I written unto you that believe on 
the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that 
ye have eternal life...” (1 John 5:13).
Eternal life isn’t a hope in the Sweet By-and-By; 
something you’re waiting on God to make happen 
for you; no! You got it when you believed; it’s your 
present-hour possession. Let’s examine Mark 11:24 
in the same light; it says,  “Therefore I say unto you, 
What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe 
that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”  It’s not 
when you hold what you desire in your hands or see 
it with your physical eyes that you know you have it; 
your spirit took possession at the time you prayed in 
faith and believed that you got it. Hallelujah!
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for imparting faith 
into my spirit. I’m a possessor of eternal life. That 
life in me destroys, paralyses, and renders ineffective 
the works of the devil in my life, family, finances and 
business. The divine life of God flows through my 
being. Hallelujah!
John 17:1-3; 1 John 5:11-12
