TOPIC: THE OPERATION OF FAITH
SCRIPTURE: For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. James 2:26
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Faith is not just a desire; it requires work.
Faith is work. It is a spiritual system that must be put to work for it to produce result. It is like the hydraulic system of a car that has a lot of components functioning together to make the system work. Faith is not just a desire; it requires work.
It is also important to know that faith is a spiritual way of life (Habakkuk 2:4). Faith is not something to look for in times of challenge; it is the normal way of life of a person even before the arrival of challenges. So, for a person of faith, there are ways he is not permitted to think, talk, or act.
Now, let us take a look at one of the dimensions of faith operation:
Deep Understanding of the Word of God
A deep understanding of the Word of God is a foundation for faith (Romans 10:17). A person of faith has a deep understanding of God’s Word in the area of his interest. So, if you are interested in operating in the supernatural, gather Scriptures in that line and network them for a deep understanding that will guarantee your faith to operate in the supernatural.
Remember this: Faith is not just a desire; it requires work.
1. Network Scriptures pertaining to your challenge, trust God for insight and use it as a missile against your challenge.
2. Define your thought, word, and action pattern according to what you want to see in life.
3. Let everything you do be driven by faith.
