TOPIC: Faith : A Supernatural Force – By David Ibiyeomie
Luke 1:45 -And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
Unbelief is the reason there are so many grounded Christians roaming the streets of life. Faith is not just a mental assent or a psychological concept; faith is a spiritual force that places an awesome demand on man. Many believers in Christ mistake faith as mere psychological concept but faith is a vital spiritual force that places an overwhelming responsibility on man.
Heb. 4:6, 11 – Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: 11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Faith is a product of your labour in the Word of God. As a child of God, you ought to labour in the Word to encounter the faith that will facilitate and bring about the fulfilment of prophecies in your life. It is not something to wait for; it is something to work at.
2Tim.2:15 -Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
You need to study to encounter the faith that will bring you to realms of approval which is the gateway to commanding proofs. Labour in the word until you get the right word that will expedite the fulfilment of God’s plan for your life.
To encounter faith, you must labour in the word of God because if your faith is not built up, prophecies cannot be fulfilled. You need a build-up in your faith and you can only achieve that by constantly studying God’s word so you can experience fulfilment of prophecies in your life.
Faith is not cheap talk but hard work; it is working hard in the study of the Word of God and other anointed books from proven authors so as to trigger your faith to match the demands of the gate that is opened to you. It is not every word that can deliver victory; it is the right word.
Job.6:25 -How forcible are right words! But what doth your arguing reprove?
When you study to the point of encounter with faith, you enjoy God’s approval that puts you in command of signs and wonders. Stop waiting for things to happen; start working at making them happen. You don’t just win by mere praying; you win by faith because it is faith you take to God in prayers. Any prayer without faith is futile.
1 John 5:4 – For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Mark 11:24 -Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Your prayer becomes wasted when you pray without faith. So, you pray believing; then God is committed to making it happen. Therefore, build up your faith.
God bless you.
