We talk about faith every now and then especially in religions matters.
Our relationship with God is faith base; without which it is impossible to please God.” But without faith it is impossible to please him for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Heb 11:6”
Faith is the invisible eye that see invisible things visible. Faith is a vehicle that connects you to the reality of things that does not and cannot appeal to the senses.” Now faith is the assurance of (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things we hope for beings the proof of things we do not see and the conviction of their reality (faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses} Heb.11:1. Amp. version
Faith is like a ladder: The higher you are in faith the better your perception about God, the better your understand the more conquerours you become- achievement, the more you pleased God and the more your receive things from God.
“But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering, for he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man is think that he shall receive any things of the Lord. A double minder man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:6 &8”
When faith is put to action and projected towards a course the result is inevitable. The story of the woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, the bible says she was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation. Being a Greek means that she was a Gentile- unbeliever. She had faith so much so that even the crumbs that falls from the master’s table was enough to heal her daughter. Hear what Jesus said about her. ‘O woman, great is thy faith, be it unto thee even as thou wilt and her daughter was made whole from that very hour Matt 15:28”.When you put your faith to work your healing will come, when your faith is activated you get the next level answer. Are you willing to engage your faith for your breakthrough, healings and miracles? C’mon lets go…….
In Acts of the Apostle 14:7-11. An incredible miracle happened to a man who was born cripple from the mother’s womb who never had walked. The same heard Paul speak: who steadfastly beholding him and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, said with lord voice, stand up right on thy feet and he leaped and walked”. Hallaluya! Apostle Paul engaged his faith as he ministered and got one of the most talk -of -the -town miracle; a headline-News- miracle. And they exclaimed “the gods are come unto us in likeness of men” this will be your testimony in Jesus Name Amen.
Dearly beloved, is there any person cripple here or anywhere, you will “Walk” as from today, Is there any man or woman sick and had defiled all medical attention? I see you healed. I see your marriage, family career and business revived and rejuvenated. Is there barrenness anywhere? I see all round fruitfulness. I see the sinners become saints. Have you suffered lack and poverty? I see abundance and prosperity; in the most precious name of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ Amen. Let me hear you shout it.
Your Vicar and friend.
