God never intended for His Church to struggle or be defeated. He never intended for us to live in sickness, disease, poverty, lack, depression, or failure. God intended for His Church to live in victory! As a matter of fact, God has already won our victory—He paid for it and provided it in Christ Jesus.
3 John 1:2 (KJV) Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Today, we are going to look at scriptures on faith that will help us understand how faith works. The Bible is clear that everything we need for life and godliness is already our in Christ Jesus (2 Peter 1:3). Our inheritance (all of Heaven’s blessings) was given to us the moment we came into Christ Jesus. Our healing, prosperity, victory, joy, peace, etc. have already been released and are literally waiting on us!
Romans 5:2 (KJV) By whom [Jesus Christ] also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Notice our faith gives us access into grace. Or you could say that faith gives us access to our inheritance in Christ. That is why understanding how faith works becomes so important.

Romans 4:16 (KJV) Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed: not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham: who is the father of us all.
. . . Therefore, [inheriting] the promise is the outcome of faith and depends [entirely] on faith, in order that it might be given as an act of grace (unmerited favor), to make it stable and valid and guaranteed to all his descendants . . . – Amplified Bible
. . . This is the reason that faith is the single source of the promise . . . – The Voice
. . . So God’s promise is given to us because we put our trust in Him. We can be sure of it. It is because of His loving-favor to us . . . – New Life Bible
. . . This is why the fulfillment of God’s promise depends entirely on trusting God and his way, and then simply embracing him and what he does. God’s promise arrives as pure gift. That’s the only way everyone can be sure to get in on it, those who keep the religious traditions and those who have never heard of them. – The Message
. . . The whole thing, then, is a matter of faith on man’s part and generosity on God’s. He gives the security of his own promise to all men . . . – Phillips

Romans 4:20-21 (KJV) He (Abraham) staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief: but was strong in faith, giving glory to God. And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
. . . With undaunted faith he looked at the facts—his own impotence (he was practically a hundred years old at the time) and his wife Sarah’s apparent barrenness. Yet he refused to allow any distrust of a definite pronouncement of God to make him waver . . . – Phillips
. . . he never concluded that the contract with God had been canceled . . . – Cotton Patch
. . . his faith won strength as he gave glory to God . . . – Moffat
. . . he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God . . . – Amplified Bible
. . . he praised God for this blessing even before it happened . . . – Living Bible
. . . fortified by faith he gave God credit . . . – Authentic New Testament
. . . Abraham didn’t focus on his own impotence and say, “It’s hopeless. This hundred-year-old body could never father a child.” Nor did he survey Sarah’s decades of infertility and give up. He didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he had said. That’s why it is said, “Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting God to set him right . . .” – The Message
. . . he rendered praise to God in the complete conviction that he was able to make good his promise. – Berkley
. . . he praised God in the unshakable conviction that God is able, not only to make promises, but also to make his promises come true. – Barclay
. . . [he] remained absolutely convinced that God was able to implement his own promise. This was the “faith” which ‘was accounted to him for righteousness’. – Phillips
2 Corinthians 4:18 (KJV) While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
. . . We just don’t put any stock in outward things but in inner things. For outward things are perishable, while inner things are eternal. – Cotton Patch
. . . So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace . . . – The Message
. . . We set our eyes not on what we see but on what we cannot see. What we see will last only a short time, but what we cannot see will last forever. – NCV
. . . That’s why we keep our minds on the things that cannot be seen. – CEV
. . . we fix our attention, not on things that are seen, but on things that are unseen . . . – Good News Translation
. . . I pay no regard to the things that are seen, but those that are unseen . . . – The Authentic New Testament
Hebrews 12:2 (KJV) Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.
. . . Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from beginning to end. – Good News Translation
