What is faith? Well scripture tells us that Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, Romans 10:17. Therefore FAITH IS THE WORD OF GOD!
Whenever you exercise your faith you are in fact exercising the word of God. Whatever you are believing God for, DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE THING, BUT BELIEVE IN THE WORD OF GOD CONCERNING THE THING!
As money is the currency for goods and services in our natural world, so is faith the currency for things in the spirit world. Remember faith is the substance (substance is the material or the contents of what something is made up of). This same faith is also the evidence (the evidence of anything is literally the proof of it) of things not seen.
So, simply put the word of God is the material of what I am hoping for and the word of God is also the evidence of the things I don't have or presently see, Hebrews 11:1.
Whenever you approach God for whatever it is that you desire, he will always search your request for FAITH or his word. Meaning what does his word say about what you're asking for. Scripture makes this clear when it said, "IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD WITHOUT FAITH OR HIS WORD, Hebrews 11:6.
