For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:10
You believe out of your heart/spirit. There is a difference between head faith versus the faith that comes out of the spirit. The person with head faith knows about the things of God, but is not fully persuaded of them down in his/her heart. In order to receive from God, you must be fully persuaded about what He has promised you and what you are believing for. Romans 4:21 puts it this way, “And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” The only way you can be fully persuaded and operate in true faith is out of your spirit. Hebrews 11:6 admonishes us that without faith it is impossible to please God. You also cannot receive from God without faith. Faith comes out of the spirit. The way we communicate with God is out of our spirit not our mind or flesh. The Bible states that “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). Head faith comes out of the flesh and will not produce the promises of God in your life. The spirit and the flesh are mutually exclusive and never in contact. God speaks to our spirits and we must renew our minds to receive what he has spoken and watch our lives become transformed (Romans 12:2). Spirit faith brings things from out of the unseen realm into the seen realm. The enemy knows the difference between head faith and spirit faith. For example, if you are believing for healing and say “by His stripes we were healed” simply from head faith no power is produced. On the other hand, if you say this Scripture with spirit faith, it produces a power in the spirit (unseen) realm in which the promise must come to pass in your life and the enemy must release you from whatever sickness had you bound. What has God promised you and what are you believing for today? Perhaps you have seen a promise of God for healing or prosperity in His Word or even had Him speak a promise to do something for you personally into your spirit. Whatever you are believing for today, meditate on the truth of His Word and allow that truth to get deep down into your heart/spirit. Then speak the Word of God concerning that promise and see the promises of God manifested in your life!
