Where is boasting then? It is excluded; by what law? Of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. – Romans 3:27
In the same way that gravity is a law in the physical world, faith is a law in the realm of the spirit. A law is expected to be constant; it should work for anyone, anywhere under the right circumstances. For example, gravity, as a law, does not function sometimes and then not function at other times. If that ever happened, you might be walking along the road one day and suddenly begin to float into the air! Faith is the same way; it can be counted on to work at all time.
The reason faith always works is that ‘faith has already worked!’ (Faith doesn’t require physical evidence). Faith is a law, meaning there is no “trial or error” about it. You don’t need to put one foot out of the door cautiously to see if gravity is working outside-you just know it is. In the same way, you don’t “try” to use your faith for if it is faith it ought to have worked already.
The Bible defines faith as the “evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). If something is an evidence, it means that it’s a proof of the existence of that thing. So, when for example, you declare “I have that new job in the Name of Jesus,” if what you have is really faith, it means the job is already yours (in the spirit) and you are voicing out those words as a result.
You need to understand that faith is a law, because it will help you immensely. Firstly, it will help you to know if what you thought was faith was really faith. Secondly, it will give you the confidence to know that faith always works! That means you can stake your life on it, because it is a law; a law that works for everyone, including you.
