Have you been praying to God about something you need or regarding a promise you’ve seen in the Bible? If so, I’ve got good news for you: You’ve already got it! You’re already healed, blessed, and delivered. You’ve got whatever it is that God has promised you.
But you might be thinking to yourself, Well, it sure doesn’t feel like it! That’s because you’re only looking at things in the natural.
Most people limit what they perceive as reality to just this physical world (what they can see, taste, hear, smell, and feel). But there is an entire spiritual world out there and inside you.
The truth is that God has already provided everything you’ll ever need, but it’s in the spiritual realm.
Ephesians 1:3 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”
In the latter part of that chapter, Paul prayed a prayer for the believers of his time and for those of us who would read it thousands of years later:
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power.
Ephesians 1:17–19 (emphasis mine)
Paul was praying that we would know what we already have!
The only way to understand that you’ve already got what you need—when everything in the physical says you don’t have it—is to recognize that there is more to reality than just this physical realm. You need to see into the spiritual realm, and the way to do that is through faith in the Word of God.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). Faith in God’s Word is the bridge between the physical and the spiritual realms. God has already done His part. Faith just reaches out and takes what God has already provided.
Once you understand this, it makes it so much easier to receive something that’s already yours than to try to get something you don’t believe you have. Faith says, “If He’s already provided it, then how can I doubt that I will get it?”
A good example of this is in 2 Kings 6:15–17, where Elisha prayed that his servant’s spiritual eyes would be opened. His servant was terrified because the Syrian army had surrounded their city. Elisha had been telling the king of Israel the battle plans of the king of Syria, so the king of Syria had come for them.
In verse 16, Elisha said to his servant, “Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.” In the natural, if all you believe to be true is just this physical, natural world, then you would say Elisha lied. But Elisha prayed, and “The Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha” (2 Kgs. 6:17). In the spiritual realm, there were tens of thousands of angels surrounding them!
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). God’s Word is the window through which you see what is happening in the spiritual realm. Faith gets you to the point where you can believe the image the Bible paints of you and what God has already provided by grace.
