“When you are really in faith you don’t possess it, it possesses you until the point of being under the influence, of faith!”
There is a ‘gift of faith’.
Paul speaks of it in his list of the ‘gifts of the Spirit’, in 1 Corinthians 12:9.
I have heard people speak of this gift operating through their lives….it is a supernatural operation of the Faith of God, that brings the impossible to pass, surpassing human limitations and thoughts, God Himself performing His marvelous works through a human vessel.
People have said: “it was almost as though such a confidence came over me and I had no doubt when I prayed for this person or that financial need. I had total confidence after I prayed that it was done.”
Dr. Winston’s statement above is similar but he is not speaking of the ‘gift of faith’. He is talking about the operation of the faith that comes by hearing the Word of God. That this Bible faith, Word-based faith, in you can pass the ‘point of no return’ so to speak, where it possesses you rather than you possessing it.
Some skeptics would say you were ‘obsessed’ or ‘possessed’, because they cannot get you moved off of your confidence that God will do what He said!
If you have ever had this particular experience, of crossing the line from possessing faith to faith possessing you, you will know what I am talking about.
If you haven’t had this experience, keep feeding your faith with the Word of God and fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit, and YOU WILL!
