Several years ago, something happened that revolutionised my philosophy about life. While in my parents house, I was sleeping one night when I kept hearing a scratchy sound at the door.
Opening the door to see what was going on, it was a rat that saw me and bolted. I shut the door and went back to sleep, but the rat returned again. At that time, my eyes were heavy and I needed to sleep, so in my subconscious, I spoke to the rat. I said 'you cant disturb my sleep, I rebuke you in Jesus name!' And surprisingly, because I didn't doubt, I saw a dead rat in front of my door in the morning.
The truth is, you may not see God Perform if you don't PUT YOUR FAITH IN ACTION!
Jesus came to restore to us, the power that was accrued to Adam before he messed up in the garden of eden! YOUR FAITH IS YOUR EVIDENCE IN GOD'S COURT! Moses had no idea how the Isrealites were going to cross the Red Sea, yet they kept moving! Friends, it doesnt matter what you see ahead of you, if God says 'keep moving,' PLEASE KEEPING MOVING!
Something remarkable happened in Luke 17:11-16. Towards the border of Samaria and Galilee, ten lepers saw Jesus and shouted for mercy. Jesus told them to go and show themselves to the priest. Look at this; Showing themselves to the priest had little or nothing to do with being healed. Besides, Jesus was/is greater than the Priest. But faith is doing what God tells you to do before trying to find out why you were told to do so!
Life is like a 'night drive,' you cannot see beyond the capacity of your headlight. So when God tells you to do something, He tells you that because He sees the end from the beginning, which we cannot!
On several occasions Jesus did not say 'my power has made you well.' Rather, He said "YOUR FAITH" has made you well! The power is constant. But the faith depends on you . Your faith is a compliment to God's power!
See, Abraham's faith so moved God that God counted his faith for righteousness. Do you know that it is not your good morals that makes you righteous? It is your FAITH IN JESUS(His death and resurrection) that does! Faith is a powerful property in God's kingdom.
How you can build your faith??? Study the bible more often, study carefully and with more than one version of the bible for better understanding "..for faith cometh by continous hearing of the word.
