Topic: The Responsibility In Faith Building
[Seeds of Destiny 29 July 2019 Devotional]
Beloved, if you are interested in your life and destiny, you must be interested in your faith
SCRIPTURE: Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Ephesians 6:16.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you are interested in your life and destiny, you must be interested in your faith.
The walk of faith has been established previously to be a journey in responsibility. There is no reach without a stretch, no flight without a fight.
It is important to note that maintaining a life of faith leaves us with responsibilities. So, we are going to look at one faith-enhancing counsel that will guide us on how to live in faith so we can exist in permanent victory in life:
Accept responsibility for building your faith (Romans 1:17).
Beloved, if you are interested in your life and destiny, you must be interested in your faith (Ephesians 6:16). So, the responsibility of building your faith must be accepted. Build your faith by studying and meditating on the Word of God (Romans 10:17). Build your faith by praying in the Holy Ghost (Jude 20), and taking scriptural faith actions.
Show me a hard worker, a man who knows how to labour in the Word of God, and I will show you someone who is a giant in the faith.
The truth is, we do not have the same weight in the realm of the spirit. There are some demons that God would never allow to go near some people because if He does, the demons would destroy such people. There are people who cannot stand their village demons because their spiritual weight is too small. For Job, it was satan himself who confronted him (Job 1:7-12) because Job’s faith was equal to the task. For Jesus Christ, satan himself took him and confronted him in temptation because Jesus could handle satan (Matthew 4:5).
Beloved, to remain in the realm of victory, building your faith is not negotiable.
Remember this: If you are interested in your life and destiny, you must be interested in your faith.
Study and meditate on the Word of God daily; you can also get a soft copy of the Bible and let it be playing while you are resting, sleeping or eating.
Get faith-building books and messages for the strengthening of your faith.
Take appropriate action when you see fresh light.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to take the responsibilities of faith. Keep me in the realm of victory permanently, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
