Topic: The Necessity of Faith [Seeds of Destiny 1 September 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Hebrews 11:1-2.
Thought For The Day: The quality, dignity and longevity of life are all anchored on a person’s faith in God.
It is very critical to know that faith is a non-negotiable necessity for the Christian’s life and adventure on the face of the earth. Faith is also one of the most valuable assets of a visionary leader; the faith-way of life was the way of leaders like Nehemiah, Joseph and Daniel, etc. Therefore, it is very important to look at the necessity of faith.
Now, why is faith necessary? Let me give you three reasons:
i) We live by faith
The quality, dignity and longevity of life are all anchored on a person’s faith in God. This is why the just can only live by faith (Hebrews 10:38). If the just shall live by faith, it therefore, means that the just shall die without faith. To put it in another way, a person’s dignity (or quality of life) is compromised without faith in God.
ii) Faith is our profession and vocation (Hebrews 10:23).
It is important to know that the Christian life is a profession or vocation of faith. It has been confirmed that in order to be successful in any profession or career in life, you must understand how it works. This means, just as a lawyer must understand Law in great details in order to be successful in it, a Christian must understand how faith works in order to be successful in the Christian life. So, to be successful in the Christian journey is to understand faith as a subject.
Beloved, make up your mind to study, understand and apply the principles of faith in your life.
Remember this: The quality, dignity and longevity of life are all anchored on a person’s faith in God.
1. Make up your mind to study the subject of faith in great details.
2. Decide to live the Christian life by absolute trust in God.
3. Provoke your faith in God by taking practical actions steps on the basis of the Word of God.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask that You show me the faith-way of life. Give me the grace to live by faith by taking faith-based action steps, O Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
