Are You Living in Reality?

Are you living in reality by myles munroe
April 26

Jesus told His disciples to “be of good cheer” in the midst of a bad storm at sea. (See Matthew 14:22–33 NKJV.) Most people would respond, “You can’t be serious. There’s nothing to be cheerful about.

There’s a storm, the boat’s breaking apart, we’re sinking, and you say, ‘Be of good cheer’? You can’t see reality, can you?”
When you express faith, some people say, “You’re not facing reality.” We’ve been trained to think that reality is what we can see. Actually, the person who is not living in faith is the one who is not living in reality. “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see” (Hebrews 11:1).
Faith is your title deed, the proof of your legal ownership of what you are praying for. Faith is your reality! Again, make sure you exercise the “God kind of faith.” Jesus said, “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you (John 15:7). In effect, He said, “Tell Me what I tell you.” The God kind of faith puts complete trust in God’s Word.
Keep believing and speaking of God’s goodness and the “impossible” things He can bring to pass. Romans 4:17 says God fulfills His Word and “calls things that are not as though they were. Affirm in your heart, “This is the beginning of a new lifestyle of faith for me—the God kind of faith.” Remember, all prayers must be prayers of faith!
Father, I believe that if I pray according to Your Word, You will be faithful to answer me. Continue to lead me into this exciting life of prayer. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: Faith, active belief, and expectation all come by what we hear.
