Imagine this parallel. A car engine generates so much force and torque. When you start a car engine and fire it up, the engine revs and screams with so much power, but because the gear hasn’t been engaged, all that power does nothing to move the car forward, it just goes to make the engine scream.
To transmit the power of the engine into motion, the torque in the engine has to be channeled to the tyres through the gear wheels. We move the gear from ‘neutral’ into ‘drive’, then the power in the engine begins to act on the tyres, moving the car forward.
The gear of a car does exactly what faith does in a man. The Spirit of God is the engine of life, it generates or communicates the wisdom or knowledge of God comparable to the torque or power of a car engine. In prayer and meditation, we fire up this engine, it revs within us with so much power, but until we engage faith, all that power does nothing, no movement is recorded.
Faith is the gear of life, faith is, to give your being(thought, emotion, words and actions) to the wisdom and knowledge of God ministered in your spirit by the Spirit of God. To give your being, I mean releasing yourself to it. If it says walk on water, you step out unto the water without fear. If it says point your right finger to that man sitting in a wheel chair and say, “get up and come here”, you do it without arguing the man’s condition in your mind.
In God, seeing isn’t believing, believing is seeing. So, we have the eyes of faith, and what we see with it is what is real. Yeah that’s right! When Jesus says that if your eyes be good, then your whole body will be full of light, He means that, if your faith is engaged to the right engine, which is the Spirit of God, and you are receiving the knowledge of God mixing it with faith, then that light shall saturate and be manifested through your life. The glory of God shall be seen upon you. You shall shine with the glory of God. The appearance of God shall be transmitted via your life. You shall be the visible manifestation of an invisible God, just as the performance of a car whose gear is engaged demonstrates the power of the engine within it.
Simply put, faith is acting like what you know about God is also true about you. AND YES, IT IS! You are made in His image.
Your life is so exciting. You’re blessed!
