The eyes of faith see the answer to the situation as if it has already happened; faith is in the present tense. To keep faith activated, we
must attend to God’s Word by constantly keeping it before us. We must
believe we receive the promises of God before we see them manifest in
our lives. Align your words with what you believe; only speak the
result you want to see. Faith in your heart that is released through
your mouth will bring results.
