No faith, no victory. Defeat comes where there is ignorance of God’s word while victory results where there is faith. 1 John 5:4 “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith”.
Faith is not a crisis occurrence but a process that takes place over time. Faith does not work on a last-minute situation but keeps you from getting there. Last-minute situations require a miracle power encounter that comes either through the gifts of the spirit or through the anointing on other people’s lives. By faith, you can always have solution from God because it is centred on God’s promise.
Develop your faith over time and don’t wait until the last-minute crisis before trying to build it. You can work faith (unlike gifts of the spirit which is as the spirit wills). Faith is putting God in remembrance of His promise. The responsibility is yours to work it out so decide today to operate by faith. It is done by WILL. Isaiah 43:26 “Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.”
The story of the woman with the issue of blood explains this (read Mark 5:25-34). Her faith made her whole. She worked faith at will and took a decision to act on the news she heard of Jesus. Start to work your faith today!
PRAYER: Lord, I pray for grace to yield and willingly work out my faith in Jesus’ name. Amen!
