Do you know God has given the tool that will enable you to beat any problem that you can face in this life?
The tool God has given every believer will enable him or her to give the enemy a good whipping every time when it is used. This tool is your faith.
Faith in God’s word when it is released in any situation is guaranteed to bring God’s response and result every time. ”But Pastor, I don’t think I have any faith; and if I have it is not big enough to move the mountains because I do not consider myself a faith giant either am I a preacher’ You see that is not true, the bible says you have faith If you are born again. Romans 12:3 God has given every man the measure of faith that is every believer has faith.
Now what are you doing with the faith you have? Because what you do with the faith you have is what will determine whether you will have great faith or not eventually. Just like you develop your muscles through exercise, same way you develop your faith for it to grow to move those mountains.
Developing your faith will take cultivating a spirit of faith, a determination to choose to use your faith irrespective of the difficulties and obstacles you face. Like a gardener will do something to cultivate his plants and flowers in the garden, the same way you need to do certain things to cultivate that spirit of faith.
How does faith come? The bible says faith comes by hearing the word of God Romans 10:17. It means your faith will potentially increase as you hear the word, study the word and put the word into yourself on a daily basis.
Your garden of faith is cultivated so to speak as you allow the word to take first place in your life and do what the word of God says in any situation.
This takes determination, willingness and a can-do attitude that I will walk by faith and not by sight. I will trust in the Lord and not consider anything else but what God says about me and that situation according to His word. As you do this your faith will increase; even in the face of seeming setbacks, you will develop a calming assurance of God’s presence in times of trouble and His ability to put you over in life.
You will be able to shout out loud and praise God in the midst of the situation and like Paul says we having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;…while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:13, 18. The spirit of faith believes, the spirit of faith speaks the word of God, and look at the things that are
