We live in days when the devil is attacking the confidence of men in God. You must protect your confidence if you will last and fulfill your destiny. Without faith, it is impossible to please God and when you please God, even your enemies will be at peace with you (Pro. 16:7). There is a need to develop a working knowledge of faith in our daily lives. The subject of faith is the most important subject in the Bible as without it, you cannot please God. Everything we do must be done as an act of faith.

It is possible to do a spiritual act that is not an act of faith but one of fear. Faith is the public display of confidence in God and His ability to help you while fear is the public display of confidence in the devil and his ability to hurt you. Everything you do must be done as an act of faith for it to be acceptable by God. Job in his days did spiritual acts of sacrifice borne out of fear and not faith (Job 3:25). Fear often makes people do seemingly spiritual things like prayers and offering of sacrifices, yet these appear before God as confidence in Satan; hence they are not acceptable to God. 

 

One reason why bad things happen to good people is that most good people are not scripturally good but naturally good. You can be a naturally good person that is violating the laws and the principles of God, thereby exposing yourself to satanic assault. Faith and fear are both spirit forces that exercise a magnetic pull in the spirit. Fear magnetizes negative things towards the person exercising it while faith magnetizes positive things to the person exercising it. Fear creates the atmosphere for the devil to work while faith creates the atmosphere for God to work. It is not just prayer that changes things but the power that prayer draws. Prayer gives you a vehicle to bring your faith in contact with divine power. Faith will contact God’s power and fear will contact Satan’s power. People could end up hooking up with Satan’s power when they pray in fear and not faith. When you bring faith to the place of prayer, then you contact God’s power that generates a positive outcome. Make up your mind today to develop your faith. Get a working knowledge of faith that will bring God to the scene of your life and keep your life in the realm of the miraculous.

Prayer: Father, I pray for grace to build a scriptural faith that will make my life and acts to please you. I cast out every spirit of fear that wants to release satanic activities into my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
