"For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith" (Mark 11:23).

I want you to notice three important truths in this verse of Scripture: If you don't doubt in your heart, but believe that the things you say are going to come to pass, you can have what you say.

In other words, if what you say with your mouth is a result of what you believe in your heart, then your faith will work for you. That is God's inevitable law of faith.

This truth is woven throughout the New Testament in all of the apostles' writings. In fact, a person can't even receive salvation without this faith. Romans 10:9 and 10 is the basic scriptural principle to receiving salvation - believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and say it with your mouth. That's God's inevitable law of faith!

However, what you are believing God for is not going to fall on you like ripe cherries falling off a tree. It doesn't work that way. You have to do something. You have to declare what you want based on God's Word and not look at anything else. Then watch it happen! That's how you put God's inevitable law of faith to work in your life.

You can choose to speak the Word over your situation - that's called a good confession. Or you can speak the negative things about your situation. The Bible calls that an evil report. Anytime you speak negative words about your circumstances, it's an evil report.

Notice I didn't say, "Don't state facts." Or "Don't face facts." You can state the facts and you can face the facts. You can say, "Yes, this is the way it is." But then you have to move on from there because when you're in faith, the situation doesn't have to dictate your present or future circumstances.

You don't have to be moved by what you see. You don't have to be moved by the circumstances. You may come up against negative circumstances and negative facts, but with the eye of faith, you can look through the circumstances and through the facts to the victory on the other side. To do that, your faith and your confession must be in line with God's Word, not in line with the circumstances.

You see, the eye of faith always sees the victory. The eye of faith always presses through negative reports, negative facts, and negative circumstances to the victory on the other side. Circumstances have nothing to do with the eye of faith. Why? Because faith is not so concerned with what is as it is with what can be.

Faith sees the situation, all right. It notices it and says, "Yes, it's there." But then true faith goes on to state what the Word of God says about the situation.

When you're in faith, you will notice the circumstances, but then you'll declare: "The Word of God says I am more than a conqueror. The Word says nothing is impossible with God. The Word says I am more than a victor through Christ Jesus who loves me."

Faith in the Word of God takes contrary circumstances and negative facts and turns them around so you come out the victor - every single time. That's God's inevitable law of faith.
