Faith: A Positive Force
“…as it is written, the just shall live by faith”
There are forces that operate in the world that cause people to do the things they do. Hate, fear unbelief, doubt, discouragement, envy, and jealousy are all negative and destructive forces that influence people to act wrongly. Some of the most heinous atrocities carried out by men were motivated by envy, jealousy, fear, and lust.
Correspondingly, in the Kingdom of God, there’re forces too, such as faith, righteousness, love, and wisdom. Our study today, however, is on the force of faith. Until you understand faith as a force, you may never be able to grow prevailing faith. Just as negative forces make men do daring but negative things, the force of faith has caused men to achieve great exploits for the Kingdom.
Hebrews 11 gives us an inspiring chronicle of men and women who obtained a good report through faith, such as Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Rahab, Gideon, and David. Through faith, they subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouth of lions, quenched the violence of fire, and more (Read Hebrews 11:33-38).
This ability is not exclusive to some “special people” in the Kingdom of God, but to all God’s children. God has dealt to every one of us the measure of faith (Romans 12:3). Grow your faith. Increase the force field of your faith through the Word. Don’t talk fear, talk faith. Voice the Word, not your situation, and your faith will rise like a giant, dispelling fear and negativity from your life.
Speak the Word; concretize it with prayer, and you’ll experience a greater influence of the force of faith in your life.
My faith is active and prevails today. The favour of God overshadows me, and His protection mantles my heart against the wiles and darts of the devil,
in Jesus’ Name.
