Living By Faith

POSSESSING THE LAND

Every place upon which the sole of your foot shall tread shall be yours. (Deuteronomy 11:24 Amplified Bible)

There are some places you can never go geographically until you first go there in prayer in the Spirit.
Mark Hankins

You have to acknowledge and declare that you are who God says you are in order to possess the land. There are some places you can never go geographically until you first go there in prayer in the Spirit. God has given you influence in new places in the harvest – in America, Africa, Asia, China, Central America, and Europe. God has given the church places to walk in harvest.

You will have new places of influence where you never had influence before. God wants the church to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. That means walking in supernatural influence over your city, your family, and your life. It is harvest time!

Confession: I am who God says I am. I have what God says I have. I am doing some walking right now. I am possessing the land. Healing and miracles are mine. New anointing and authority are mine. Prosperity and victory are mine. New places of understanding and revelation, new places of authority, boldness, and anointing are mine. New places in prosperity, world harvest, evangelism, and new places in prayer are mine!

GOD IS GIVING YOU A CHANGE OF CLOTHES

And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment. (Zechariah 3:4)

God is dressing you in prosperity! Mark Hankins

God said, “I am going to dress you up in some new clothes.” The Amplified Bible says, “I will clothe you with rich apparel.” Here are some different kinds of clothes the Bible says to put on:

  1. A robe of righteousness of who you are in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21)
  2. A garment of praise (Isaiah 61:3)
  3. The power of the Holy Spirit (Luke 24:49)
    (Pray in the Holy Spirit until what is on the inside of you gets on the outside of you
  4. Your glory clothes (Psalm 8:5)
    (Get in the presence of God until you are wearing glory on your countenance.)
  5. Humility (1 Peter 5:5)

Confession: I am wearing a robe of righteousness and a garment of praise! I walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and glory of God. I am clothed with humility. I am dressed in prosperity in Christ!

CHANGE CLOTHES DAILY

And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him. (Colossians 3:10)

Acting on the Word is the simplest definition of faith.
Mark Hankins

Changing clothes is not something you do once in your lifetime. You do not say, “I changed clothes twenty years ago.” No, this is a daily thing. You did not get up this morning and say, “If God wanted me to wear clothes, He would have put them on me.” That is ridiculous, isn’t it? You cannot say, “If it is the will of God, I would have clothes on today.” No, you had to get up, pick them out, and put them on.

Often people say, “If it were the will of God for me to be healed, I would be healed because God wanted it.” No, did your clothes jump on you? In other words, healing is a part of your redemption, but you need to put it on.

Some people say, “If it is the will of God for me to have money, then I would have it.” No, God did not put your clothes on you; you put them on. Likewise, you have to “put on” prosperity. That is what belongs to you in Christ. You have to dress yourself up by acknowledging who you are in Christ.

Confession: That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. (Philemon 6)

GIVING ACCESSES THE GLORY

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)

Your giving will tap into God’s riches in glory. Mark Hankins

Paul said to the Philippian believers, “Because you gave, and gave again, I have all and abound.” Their giving tapped into God’s riches in glory.

Some of God’s paydays are better than money! You can see the same principle with Cornelius in Acts 10. He was a devout man that feared God. He gave “much alms to the people, and prayed to God always.” (Acts 10:2) His prayers and his giving came up as a memorial before God and the glory of God came to his family. Cornelius and his whole house were filled with the Holy Spirit.

We are living in days of great glory when the glory and the goodness of God break into our lives on a scale that is unprecedented. Whenever we say, “Glory!” we are including all of the goodness of God. One commentary defined the glory as including wealth, numbers, commerce, power, wisdom, promotion, superiority, dignity, authority, nobility, splendor, valor, magnificence, extraordinary privileges, and advantages. Jesus came to restore the glory that God intended for us to have!

Confession: My giving taps into God’s riches in glory! Praise God! His paydays are better than money!

EXPERIENCING THE GLORY

That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man. (Ephesians 3:16)

The man with an argument is always at the mercy of the man with an experience.
Mark Hankins

What is the glory? The glory of God is not just something intellectual; the glory of God is something you experience. The Apostle Paul talks about experiencing the glory of God throughout the book of Ephesians.

In Ephesians 3, Paul says that God will strengthen your inner man; this strength comes from His glory.

Moses desired to see the glory. He cried out to God and said, “Show me your glory.” David did the same thing in Psalm 63, “My soul thirsteth for thee…to see thy power and thy glory….”

God will strengthen you and increase your capacity so you will be able to possess things in your life that are exceeding abundantly above what you could ever imagine. God wants to do something in you that will shock a generation!

Confession: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. (Ephesians 3:20)
