Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (KJV)
Today’s Bible reading is almost an anthem to every Christian, but the question is, ‘if we work our faith?’ To examine this, let’s study the account of the centurion whose servant was seriously ill in Matthew 8:5-13. This high-ranked commandant met Jesus, who was willing to follow him home, but this man believed that if Jesus could speak the word, his servant would get well. The centurion had ‘great faith’, and his servant was healed the moment Christ spoke!
How active is your faith, and mine? Severally we have read and heard the word which confirms God’s promises. But, because we fail to activate our faith, the mountains remain unshaken (Matthew 17:14-20). Therefore, as the centurion went after Christ, we must pray continually and exercise ‘great faith!’
Beloved, you may also desire a thing, and prayed about it, yet you must work towards it because ‘trust without thrust is trash’ (James 2:14-26). So, focus on Jesus and swing into action— reapply for those dream jobs. Get a passport for international opportunities, and even in the absence of a suitor, get your wedding plan ready! It may seem foolish, but you must work your faith because, without it, you cannot move God (Hebrews 11:6-8).
Hymn: I Must Tell Jesus — Elisha A. Hoffman (1893)
1. Father, help my unbelief and strengthen my faith! (Tell Him)
1. Today! I move from nonentity, shame (mention) to the limelight.
2. Ancestral bondage and affliction in my life, break!
3. Write those things you shall testify about this month and year, to pray on them daily!
ACCEPT JESUS TODAY!
