“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God” (Mark 11: 22).
One indispensable companion in every believer’s life journey is faith. It is your virtue for victory, your tenant for triumph, and your precept for progress. The Bible defines faith as, “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11: 1).
Faith is expressed in the bank draft you receive instead of actual dollar notes in business transactions. It is seeing the invisible and believing the incredible. It is reposing absolute confidence in God for all your needs. It is taking God at His word and confessing His words until the promises are fulfilled.
Faith can reorganize your thought, reshape your perception and renew your hope in God. Faith is the believer’s hand that receives from God what others think is impossible. If you have faith in God, nothing shall be impossible for you.
Jesus told the disciples the blanket truth for their daily upkeep: “Have faith in God”. You also need this God-kind of faith in your daily affairs. We are assured in the scriptures that, “without faith, it is impossible to please him” (Hebrews 11: 6).
We also learn in another place that, “The just shall live by faith” (Romans 1: 17). You begin to realize then that faith is central and fundamental to your life as a Christian. Faith will make you conquer all your battles and put you above all circumstances. Put on, “he shields of faith” and you, “shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked” (Ephesians 6: 16).
Prayer: Dear Lord, make me strong in faith.
