09 August 2023: FAITH CALLETH FORTH – 2 Corinthians 4:13-14; Romans 4:17


The spirit of faith is not to impress anyone. When I was in secondary school, I wrote the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) Biology examination and one question required me to name one eye defect and describe it in the second part of the question. So, I named one eye defect but described another type, and I wrote it so well. When we came out of the examination hall and my classmates were discussing, I discovered that I had mentioned one type and described another. My classmates said, “You have missed it; you will fail.” I said, “Not me! What I wrote is so good that the examiner will forget that I’m describing something else.” When the result came out, I had A1 (Distinction) in Biology.

While at the University, I was deeply involved in the work of the ministry. After my last paper, a brother in my department said it would take a miracle for him to pass, and I said, “Even if the devil marks my script, I will pass.” I passed, he didn’t. 

A Christian who gets stranded is foolish or disobedient because the Holy Ghost in us is not just to warm our bellies but to inspire us.

During the examination I mentioned above, I switched to the faith channel when I got the question paper. I told myself, “I’m not going to fail because God will reveal the secret to me”, so I started praying in tongues. After some time, I began to write as formulas rose in my spirit, and I submitted my paper. I passed while some other people failed.

PRAYER: I declare in the name of Jesus, “My faith is working and God is working on my behalf.” Amen!

Ezra 8:21-9:15; 1 Corinthians 5:1-13; Psalm 31:1-8; Proverbs 21:1-2
