We must access the power of the blood of Jesus by faith. The Word of God tells us how we can access grace by faith.

Romans 5:1-2 says: "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace [shalom] with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand" (Rom. 5:1-2).

We have access to this power of God called grace by faith. Grace is God's willingness to let us use His ability to do what we can't do on our own. If you have something that plagues you, God will step in and do what needs to be done through you. If you could do it on your own, you wouldn't need God. But God is willing to allow you access to His power for everything you need to do.

The greatest scripture on grace is, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Phil. 4:13). To paraphrase that scripture, it would be like saying, "I can do all things that God wants me to do through Christ who strengthens me to be able to do the things that I couldn't do on my own." If I could do it on my own, I wouldn't need grace. Do you see the power in this statement?

We access this power called grace by faith. That means you not only know the power of grace exists, but you access it by applying faith to it. You must believe that God can do things through you that you formerly didn't believe could be done.

You must believe grace is for you. You start by believing God will do what He said He would do. As you believe it, soon everything you say and do will be based on that belief. That's how you access grace.

Another power in the spirit realm we must understand and access is the covenant blood of Jesus. As you learn about the blood and begin to act on all you know, then you must trust God enough to act on what you don't completely understand.

For example, I know all I need to know about electricity. I know that when I turn on the switch in a room, the light goes on or the light goes off, depending on which way I turn the switch. However, I don't have a clue about what makes the electricity run through the wires in the wall. I know how it works, but I don't understand why it works.

Just because I don't understand it doesn't mean I don't use it. When I walk into a room - it's dark. It would be foolish for me to get into an extended discussion or argument about the attributes of electricity. I just need light in the room. So, even though I don't fully understand everything there is to know about electricity, I flip the switch anyway, by faith, and then I walk in the light.

If it's in the Word, believe it by faith. Once you can do that, you will find that the blood will start doing things in your life just like it did in the lives of the people in the Bible. When you start seeing what the blood did for the people in the Bible, it will bless your socks off. And the first time you see it work for you, it will change your thinking.
