How To Live By Faith
Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.- Habakkuk 2:4
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. - Hebrews 11:1-2
Faith is one of the redemptive packages we have in Christ when we become born again in Romans 12:3, God dealt with every man the measure of faith. As a born again child of God, You have received from Him the measure of faith. Essentially, that faith is the weapon for your victory on earth. That is the more reason God desires that you live by faith (1John 5:4-5)
Faith is the doorway to the grace of God. Through faith, we access the grace of God. God’s grace is so abundant and plenteous. He often extends His grace to the unlikely to provoke His own children. The issue is not whether God is gracious or not but what you and I do with grace. Thank God, we can through faith in the finished work of Christ, access the grace of God.
Never say you do not have faith; once you are genuinely born again, you have faith in your spirit. You are given faith to establish your dominion on earth. The just shall live by faith (Roman 1:17) so no more failure in your life. No matter how flat you might have been you can’t go lower than you are now and the devil has no option but to remove his hands from whatever he is withholding from you.
Prayer: I came to God through Jesus, the author and finisher of my faith to take possession of the provisions I need and the deliverance of my loved ones regardless of what may be happening all around me in Jesus Name.
