At the place of prayer, it is your faith that puts the devil where he belongs. It is faith that engages the enemy and brings him to defeat.
SCRIPTURE: Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God is moved by faith and not by tears; He is moved by faith, and not by sentiments.
It is clear from Scriptures that prayer is not just what we do when we are in need of something from God; prayer is the lifestyle of the believer. The prayer of a believer is to be robed in faith in order to get answers from God.
There is therefore, a relationship between prayer and faith. Faith moves God into action on the behalf of the believer. When your prayer is robed with faith, God moves into action (Hebrews 11:6). God is moved by faith and not by tears; He is moved by faith, and not by sentiments. Faith is the guarantee of victory over the enemy (1 John 5:4). At the place of prayer, it is your faith that puts the devil where he belongs. It is faith that engages the enemy and brings him to defeat. Mountains are moved by faith; faith is the secret of saying it and seeing it (Mark 11:23).
Now, one way to activate your faith at the place of prayer is the revelation of God’s Word. The revelation of God’s Word is the fuel of faith (Romans 10:17). Faith is ignited and potentiated by the revealed Word.
Now, the question is, how does the Word of God fuel faith?
a. The Word of God fuels faith by revealing God’s dealings with His people.
When you read Scriptures on how God dealt with His people, for instance, how Abraham and Sarah overcame barrenness, how Joseph passed through the pit and survived Potiphar’s house, your faith will definitely be fuelled. God’s favourable dealings with His people in Scriptures ignite our faith in Him.
b. Revelation is established by God’s provisions and promises.
Your faith is fuelled by God’s promises in scriptures. That is, what He has said He will do in Scriptures (Romans 10:17). When you have the revelation and the conviction, then you can declare with authority (2 Corinthians 4:13).
Beloved, make up your mind to build your faith by studying the Word consistently.
REMEMBER THIS: God is moved by faith and not by tears; He is moved by faith, and not by sentiments.
1. Increase your faith level daily by reading and studying the Scriptures and other faith-based materials.
2. Always declare your expectations with authority. Never let the enemy have the final say in your life.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the fuel of faith through Your Word. Let Your promises to me become manifestations in my life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
