Faith in a time like this
Talking about faith in a time like this it means that we are able to put our trust more in the word of God and in the power of Grace to turn things around. The Bible rightly said that the world that we see was created by what did not exist before (Hebrew 11:3) and this is what faith does when God created man.He obviously commanded man to replenish the Earth. Now replenishment is making something fresh, new and lively every time.
The word of God is the strength giver, it is also a carrier of the power of God.
Psalm 119 verse 18 said “Open thou my eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of thy laws.” Hence the word of God contains hidden secrets that only believers can discover and enjoy.
In the book of 1 Peter 2:24 it says “:by whose stripes ye were healed.” It means that God has already promised healing in His word before you ever faced a sickness. This is victory before every battle you had to face, you’ve got to appropriate the victory in the word of God to that situation until you begin to experience a change and feel better in your body. That is the victory that the word of God has promised you.
So as believers we reveal what we believe by what we speak. And as we know, faith only works for believers.
So how do we appropriate faith?
- By studying the word of God as regards your circumstance and trusting the Holy Ghost for interpretation.
- By praying the word and continual confession of the word.
Remember God honours His words above His name. His word is what we need as our medicine in a time like this.
For God has not given us the Spirit of fear but of power, and of love and of a sound mind, (2 Timothy 1:7). It simply means that God expects you to appropriate his words without fear. Even in the midst of fear, He wants you to confidently use his words as a tool for your victory.
Psalm 27:1 says “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?. . .” So God wants you to trust Him more than you trust your body. He wants you to trust Him than you trust your logic. He wants you to trust Him than you trust the government because He is all in all. God bless you as you meditate on this.
