"The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach" (Rom. 10:8).

Everything we could ever need is waiting for us in the realm of the spirit with our name on it. All we need to do is get it from there to here.

How do we do that? With faith.

Faith is the "currency" we use to transfer God's provision for us from the unseen realm of the spirit to this natural, earthly realm. Or, as Hebrews 11:1 says, "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Spiritual currency works the same way as natural currency. If you have an abundance in your natural bank account, you can enjoy plenty of material things. If you have an abundance of faith in your spiritual account, you can enjoy plenty of everything-wealth, health, good relationships, peace, success-because the Bible says God "giveth us richly all things to enjoy" (1 Tim. 6:17).

The problem is, many believers don't have a clue where faith actually comes from, where it's stored or how to get it out when they need it. That's crucial information. In fact, without it, you're spiritually broke. So let's study these a moment:

Where does faith come from? Romans 10:17 says, "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."

Where is faith stored? "The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach…. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Rom. 10:8,10). Your faith is stored up in your heart-and since your faith (or lack of it) determines your future, the truth is, your future is stored up in your heart as well.

How do you get it out? When you want to make a withdrawal from your faith account, speak the Word of faith. Don't talk the circumstances. Don't "tell it the way it is" (or looks, in other words). Speak the end result. Say what God says the outcome is going to be. But don't put it in the future. Faith calls things as though they were.

Let me ask you this: How much faith do you have in your heart account right now? Is it enough to handle your current situation? Is it enough to produce victory every day of your life? If not, you'd better start making some big deposits of God's Word. Remember: No deposit-no return.

Speak the Word: The Word of God is near me. It is in my mouth and in my heart. (Rom. 10:8)
