Rhapsody of Realities 21 April 2020 By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome — When Faith Is Broke
Topic: When Faith Is Broke
…Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth (Luke 18:8).
Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to hear Christians talk about their doctor as though he’s the Holy Spirit. You’ll hear them make statements like: “I was having tummy ache; so I went to the doctor and he told me what to do.” They receive the doctor’s recommendations as though such recommendations came from the Holy Spirit.
Imagine a Christian who’s been feeling a headache for two weeks. You’d think the next thing he’d say is how he took a stand against it in the Name of Jesus, and it disappeared. Instead, his testimony is that he called his doctor who gave him a powerful drug that took care of it.
The question to ask such people is, “Where is your faith? Where is the place of the Word of God in your life?” They’re doing things because the doctor— not the Word or the Spirit—said to do them. How sad! Christians who have found themselves in this predicament have one major problem: their faith has gone broke or bankrupt.
The message of faith teaches that when you feel symptoms in your body, you rebuke it in the Name of Jesus. You command Satan to get out! Many have become so enslaved to their feelings that the slightest ache or pain have them heading to the drug store. How about the divine life in you? You’re born of God and His life in you makes you impregnable to sickness; absolutely unconquerable. Hallelujah!
You may say, “But I confessed, prayed and tried everything, but nothing was working, and I didn’t know what else to do.” Well, that’s what happens when faith is broke. How did you know things weren’t working?
They only stopped working when you thought and said they weren’t working. Faith always works. Use it to frame your world and create the glorious realities you want to experience in life.
It makes no difference what the situation is; my faith, fueled by the Word, always works! I take advantage of God’s extraordinary power in overcoming life’s adversities by expressing my faith, which is the victory that overcomes the world, its systems, economies and economics. I’m fully convinced of my eternal victory over sickness, poverty, Satan and the world. Therefore, I rejoice, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Proverbs 24:10; If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
1 John 5:4-5; For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.(5) Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
Mark 11:22-24; And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.(23) For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.(24) Therefore I say unto you, What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
