How To Live By Faith

Today’s Message

To see and experience the reality of any of God’s promises in your life you must exercise faith. God’s faith. I’m not talking about human faith.

Every person on earth uses human faith daily. The human faith is one hundred percent dependent upon the five senses – see, hear, smell, taste and feel. For example, if you’re sitting on a chair while reading this message, you’re exercising human faith by trusting the chair’s legs (and its whole structure) to be strong enough to carry you. We place so much faith in ‘chairs’ that whenever you see one and you need to sit down, you don’t even think twice before sitting on it. Like we say, ‘Seeing is believing!’

But what do you do when you can’t see, feel, taste, smell and hear the future? What do you do when your five senses cannot predict what will happen to your job after or when the covi-19 is passed?

Humanly speaking, tomorrow is out of our control. The best we can do is guessing, speculating. Speculation however is like the weather at times. Sometimes the forecast is correct and other times not.

We need something more solid, more durable, more everlasting! We need Someone who is dependable, trustworthy, faithful and immutable. Only One qualifies – God!

You may already know this but right now God is not wringing His hands panicking and wondering what He’s going to do with the covid-19 pandemic. No, He is not the least worried. Jesus dealt with Covd-19 2,000 years ago on the cross. Jesus looked at all sicknesses, diseases, pandemics and said, “It is finished!”

Everyone should panic except the Christians. How come? Listen, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20, NKJV) Christians live by faith in the Son of God and not on their five senses. The bible says that Christ’s followers Live/Operate by faith. God’s faith, that came into our spirit when we became born-again.

You may lose or have lost your job but the bible says that your source of making wealth is God alone, “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19, NKJV) Have you noticed how many of your needs God can meet? ALL! And He meets All of your needs “according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus ” not according to your wallet, bank account, job.

The best way to live by faith is to spend time reading, memorizing and meditating in God’s Word every day. Keep doing that for weeks, months, years, until your thinking is taken over by scriptures. Until the very lenses you view everything in life become dominated by the Word of God. When that happens, you will see results to your prayers, breakthroughs in your relationships, victories in areas where the enemy once had the upper hand.

Finally, no matter what challenges, difficulties, overwhelming problems you’re facing right now hear Jesus’ words for you,
“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26, NKJV) Give Jesus a chance! Ask Him to help.
