You are expected to exercise the substance of faith that came into your spirit as God’s injection. At salvation, you took hold of something powerful that was written as a fact, you acted upon it and it became a force that now works inside you. Even though you can do a lot of things to and with this measure, it can also remain dormant.
There are some born again people whose only exercise of this measure of faith was in accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior. If you got born again by exercising that measure of faith and you join a church that believes divine healing has ended with the apostles, you will not be able to exercise your faith for healing. This is because faith cannot be exercised beyond knowledge.
Furthermore, if you have the wrong knowledge but the right faith, that faith will be crippled because of wrong knowledge. If two people got born again the same day and one of them attends a church that believes healing ended with the last apostle; and the other’s church teaches healing because it is written in the Bible, their faith results and manifestation will differ greatly.
This is because the former attends a church where the knowledge he receives has truncated his faith in healing, therefore, he is not going to have any manifestation as far as healing is concerned. This is despite the fact that they both had the same measure of faith at the outset. Some believers have opened themselves to strange literature that has corrupted their faith; beware of knowledge that truncates your measure of faith.
PRAYER: Lord, I reject every doctrine of demons that is limiting the development of my faith in Jesus’ name.
