26/05/2018- WORD FOR TODAY: INCREASE THAT FAITH!
FAITH is a substance of things not seen, evidence of things hope for-Hebrew 11:1.
Everyone has been given measures of faith to live. But for you to live well and end well; you need to increase the level of faith in you. How do you do that? You start by studying the word of God (2Timothy2:15); Hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17) and acting upon the word of God (James 1:22). BY so doing you will please your God And He will reward you adequately for seeking Him (Hebrew 11:6).
“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt with every man the measure of faith.”
Faith is so important that God had to give us faith when we got saved. It is part of your heritage the day you got saved. Every believer has faith. Every one of us has the measure of faith. We started with the same measure. You may not have been developing your own and that is why the Bible talks about little faith, small faith, and great faith. Faith grows! It all depends on how you exercise your own, just like your muscles got stronger when you do exercises. So, faith can be exercised; although every one of us started at the same level.
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.”
So, if without faith I can’t please God, how would God want me to please Him when He didn’t give me faith? And so, we have read that he had dealt unto us the measure of faith when we got saved. Everyone has the measure. We have the measure with which we can start. When we begin to act on it we will produce results.
Ephesians 2:8 says “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves”.
Both the grace and the faith do not belong to you. God gave them to you. So, you have faith. But you must grow your faith. Develop it daily by believing and acting upon God’s Word in your day to day activities and watch all seemingly impossible situations become possible in your life. I bless you today in the name of the Lord.
PRAYER: I pray that the word of God I studies; hears and act upon will increase my faith to overcome my obstacles. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayers.
You are Born to Shine!
