Text: James 5:13-18
Memory verse:
”For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.“ ‭‭I John‬ ‭5‬:‭4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Most believers know little or nothing about the unseen realm, while some who have an understanding of it look to it with fear. God has not only called us to look at the unseen realm but to look at it with faith. Abraham believed in an unseen land instead of the seen fear of the unknown; and Sarah believed in an unseen conception instead of the fear of age limitations! What about Israel who went out into battle against the people of Jericho, not being afraid of them but believed in the unseen victory that God already announced! By faith, they broke through the tall walls and the strictly shut gates (Josh 6:1, 20).
”We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do.“ ‭‭(2 Cor‬ ‭10‬:‭3‬ ‭NLT‬‬).
God has called us into a fight of faith and not a fight of fear, as mere humans. To control the unseen realm and to dictate your physical reality, you need to use the weapon of faith. Your God-ordained outcome will answer to faith and not fear. You need the power of God to confront the powers, altars, covenants, laws, and spirits holding your destiny into captivity and to deprogram the evil programming against your life. But you need faith to connect to that power house.
Let’s look at what Elisha did again. “Then he went out to the source of the water, and cast in the salt there, and said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘I have healed this water; from it there shall be no more death or barrenness.’ ”“
‭‭(II Kings‬ ‭2‬:‭21‬).
Having diagnosed the problem through spiritual intelligence, Elisha reprogrammed the evil programming that produced death in the land of Jericho. By faith, he enforced the blessing of the Abrahamic covenant on the unseen realm. The prayer of faith heals and not the prayer of fear (Jam 5:15).
Friends likewise enter into the unseen realm by faith and not fear. Write out the covenant promises specific to your area of need. For example, you can override the programming of shame with Psalm 37:19; Isaiah 50:7; 54:4-5; and 61:7. Then, begin to reprogram by violently prophesying the word into your spiritual atmosphere until you see the manifestation of the physical reality that you have desired.

Prayer points
1. I cast out the spirit of fear from my life, and I refuse to look at the unseen with fear but with faith in Jesus’ name.

Today’s declarations
1. It’s not enough for me to believe in the unseen realm, but I also enter into it by faith and not by fear.
2. Through bold prophetic declarations, I control my spiritual atmosphere and dictate my physical outcomes.
