Topic: The Necessity Of Faith
[Seeds of Destiny 27 July 2019 Devotional] Necessity is a major driver of exploits. When the necessity of a thing is known, exploit in that direction is achievable.
SCRIPTURE: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is faith that gives substance to hope.
Necessity is a major driver of exploits. When the necessity of a thing is known, exploit in that direction is achievable.
So, we are going to look at one of the necessities of faith in order to increase our drive towards growing our faith so as to live a victorious life on earth.
Now, why is faith necessary?
Faith turns expectations into manifestation
Hebrews 11:1 says, Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. To hope for something means to expect it, so it is faith that gives substance to hope.
For instance, if you are expecting your wedding to come to pass before the end of the year; if you are expecting the grace to command millions and billions of Naira for the purposes of the Gospel, or you are trusting God for the grace to operate in a higher realm of the anointing, etc. it is faith that would convert that expectation into manifestation.

This implies that where faith is lacking, expectation continues unfulfilled. Where faith is lacking, hope is deferred (Proverbs 13:12).
When a person’s hope is deferred, the arrival of the things he is expecting keeps being postponed and it makes the heart sick according to scripture (Prov. 13:12).
So, we need faith because there is no human being on earth today that does not have an expectation or expectations.
Remember this: It is faith that gives substance to hope.
Make up your mind to read God’s Word consistently.
Hold unto God’s promises; they will come to pass.
Never allow the situations of life to weigh you down.
Always do the opposite of what the devil expects from you.
PRAYER: Lord, I will trust You in the night time and in the day. Let Your counsel and good thoughts for me be established, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
