Good to connect with you today. This read would be short but well packed for easy digestion. Let’s jump right in!
“Now faith is the assurance (title, DEED, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen (the conviction of their reality – faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses).” – Hebrews 11:1 AMP.
I was reading this verse in NKJV, and decided to do a little Bible Study by checking other translations when I got hooked on the amplified translation of this verse. My goodness! I just couldn’t let go. I had to go on Google to search for the meaning of DEED. Let’s read it aloud together, let’s go! “Deed – a legal document that is signed and delivered, especially one regarding the ownership of property or legal rights.”
Now let us replace the assurance in the verse above with the definition of deed because the words in the brackets were placed there in the first place for you have more synonyms for your comprehension. “Now faith is the legal document that is signed and delivered, especially one regarding ownership of property or legal rights, of things hoped for…” Are you still flowing with me? Do not get sidetracked, come along!
When I read this, it was like my brained opened up to receive sense. I was like, Ize, do you have any idea about what this means? (I talk to myself alot). I mean, this is saying that if I ask for anything in faith, I have the legal right to claim it as mine – NO NEGOTIATIONS! Before you say this is a say it and claim it gospel, permit me to spell out John 15:7-8 TPT for you – “But if you live in life-union with me and if my words live powerfully within you – then you can ask whatever you desire and it will be done. When your lives bear abundant fruit, you demonstrate that you are my mature disciples who glorify my Father!” This is the Bible oh, no be me write am.
What is it you have said you are having faith for or trusting God for? Do you know you have the legal documents in your name for that thing already? Is it Healing, Finances, Promotion, Health, Children, Wisdom, Knowledge, Job, Marriage? What is it? Name it! You have the legal document for that. Praise Jesus! Now that you know, you stand up and claim what is yours. But hey, do not forget, I am talking to people who ask in FAITH hey, you are welcome. Let’s not get things twisted here, God cannot be mocked. Faith is the key to access whatever the deed gives you access to.
Hope to chat to you soon.
