If you must live a faith life and please God, then take note of the following:
1.Know that you have the measure of faith
2.Understand that faith grows. If it is not growing it is because you are not growing it.
3.Faith does not stop but faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of Word.
For you to be productive in the use of your faith, you must protect your faith from pollution by fear. Since faith comes by hearing, then you need hearing to get faith and once you get faith, it will provide every other thing you need. Attitude and content will determine what kind of faith you will build. Take heed to what you hear and how you hear. Your faith is received by hearing the word of God and it is released by speaking out words. There is nothing like the general faith that works everywhere. Faith is qualified by knowledge which means that you have to hear the word of God in the area you want to receive faith in. This is the reason you must be an all scripture kind of believer. Hear about healing, salvation, deliverance, hope etc. What you have not heard about you can’t have faith for. Faith and knowledge work hand in hand.
Faith does not come by studying, but knowledge comes by studying. Some have the knowledge but they don’t have the force of faith. The purpose of studying the bible is to know what God has spoken about and what God can do and will not do. God gave you the measure of faith to put your destiny in your hands. God does not withdraw something that is due you now but shifts it forward until you grow your faith to take it. Faith in God brings God into our lives. We must be prepared enough to maximize His move and divine contribution in our lives. God will not do for you what you can do for yourself. This is where many believers fail. They expect from God and put out their faith without being ready to do their part. Hence, the operation of their faith appears not to have birthed forth any result. Get ready to work as your faith releases the divine force of God on your behalf.
PRAYER: Lord, anoint my heart with the spirit of knowledge and understanding so that my faith will grow from the initial measure to the status God expects it to be in Jesus’ name. Amen.
