To get rid of "the seen," or what seems to be, you must get your mind and spirit so programmed with the Word of God that you will reject all that the devil has to offer.

Your spirit will scream, "Reject! Reject!" It doesn't agree with God's Word!

Then you begin to shape the unseen by God's Word.

Someone said, "Why should we walk in defeat and in despair when God's Word has been spoken?"

God has already had His say on the subject. The problem is that some don't know what He has said, and that enables the devil to take advantage of them.

We see in the book of Romans that Abraham wouldn't consider anything except what God said:
He 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 (God) had promised, he was able also to perform, And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
(Rom. 4:20-22)
The word righteousness is an Old English word that means "right standing." Abraham's faith was considered or imputed to him for right standing with God.

Some might say, "I don't understand it. I don't have any trouble believing God for finances, but I do have trouble believing Him for healing," or vice versa. The same problem may exist in other areas.

When you get your mind renewed to the Word of God concerning prosperity—and realize that it is God's will for you to prosper—then you can operate in that faith. But you can't believe any further than you have knowledge.

You have to get yourself in line with the Word of God in the other areas, too. If you have been taught that healing went out with the apostles and that God doesn't do miracles anymore, then you're inhibited in that area. You're not in right standing with God concerning miracles.

You may be right with God; you may make it to heaven. But in one or more areas you might not be in right standing. It's not imputed to you for right standing because you are believing wrong. You are talking wrong and thinking wrong because you have been taught wrong. Faith comes by hearing God's Word (Rom. 10:17).
