One of the greatest attacks of the devil against the church and against Christians is to undermine our appreciation of the power of faith. Faith makes you have access to an extraordinary life; faith takes you out of the limitations that natural life puts on every human being. Once you are born of a man and woman’s union, there are some limitations that you will face but once you get on the platform of faith, it has the power to take you out of those limitations.
If you ask medical doctors about the case of the woman with the issue of blood, it could mean anything. Faith gives you the right to expect something contrary to what the best of man is predicting for you. We face many situations in the world that give us cause for fear and you will be stupid if you face something that makes people afraid and you are not afraid, you are either insane or you have an answer that people don’t know about. But when faith is in you, you have a right to expect something different. You are not to boast foolishly, but understand the power that faith brings to you and makes available for you.
What I am here to tell you this morning is for you to see the power that your faith can produce if you don’t separate from it. That is one thing the devil wants to separate you from. The devil can deal with your brain, the devil can handle your senses, the devil can handle your understanding but the devil cannot handle your faith. The Bible is full of the incredible faith of men that dare to believe God.
When you are dealing with the subject of faith, you are going to come up against the most terrible battle you will ever fight in your life; the reason many people have not tested their faith is because the battles that surround faith is an internal battle. An internal battle is a battle that can leave your inside and can get to your environment. The closest people to you, sometimes the people that you respect the most will not go with you on the battle of faith. You must understand that the battle of faith, most of the time, is a personal and individual battle.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for a fresh revelation of the power of faith and I take a bold step to live a life of faith and become all that you have destined me to be in Jesus’ name. Amen.
