Hello guys! I hope you are having a good week. Last week, we started looking at faith. If you missed that, you can check it here. We will continue today and we should be done next week Tuesday. Guys, I want us to please join our faith together and pray for peace in the world and most especially for strengthened faith for Christians being persecuted for their faith. God bless you as you do so. Remember you can send me a mail and you can share a testimony on my space, to inspire others. Stay connected and please share and let me hear your view in the comment box :*
When your faith is little, not even up to a mustard seed, you will be limited in the application of that faith. If you put 10% effort into something, chances are you will get 10% result or even less. If you apply little faith, like ask God for something that makes him wonder why you have forgotten he owns the whole world, your results will be small simply because you limited yourself. So you must operate GROWING FAITH. II Thessalonians 1:3KJV says “we are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith growth exceedingly………….”. As you progress in the word and work of the Kingdom of God, your faith grows and becomes stronger. Look at Abraham, he operated his faith on STRONG FAITH and that’s why it’s said in Romans 4:20 “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God”, though Abraham was already a hundred year old and childless yet he chose to believe the word God already spoke concerning his life. You have got to stop doubting that word he has spoken concerning your life though like Sarah, it’s a word you would laugh about because of how impossible it sounds. But remember it’s the same God that exalts his word above his name. It was said about Abraham in Romans 4:18″who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many Nations, according to that which was spoken, so shall thy seed be”. He stepped out in faith; darling, your faith must be strong even when things around you do not justify it.
Remember the centurion? Can you remember the great faith he exhibited when he said to Jesus to speak the word only because he understood the authority and the power in the word of God. Matthew 8:10 “when Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel” Or the woman with the issue of blood who believed just by touching the hem of Jesus’ garment, she would be healed. There are so many cases and one thing that is common with all of them is, they got what and for some even more than they asked for. Their faith was able to carry them and their faith provoked God. Even though you don’t see it, you have to believe it and confess it, it is important because God will only settle it through your faith. What determines the level of your faith is the word of God in you just like what determines how far a car will go is the fuel in it. Paul in Colossians 1:23KJV”if ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature under heaven…………” advised us to be grounded and settled in our faith and to me, this means we have to build and establish a solid relationship with God and seek Him.
Stop doubting God! Doubt can never make you get anything from God, just as when you doubt yourself, you might never really be able to maximize your potentials simply because you do not believe in yourself enough. Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. Do not be limited by who you are, what you have and whatever limitations that surrounds you. Focus on God’s power and ability.0
