Topic: The Key of Faith [Seeds of Destiny 7 June 2019 Devotional]
The Word of God enhances faith; where God’s Word abounds, faith is exercised.
SCRIPTURE: But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; Romans 10:8.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Light from the Word of God is the raw material for the operation of faith.
In our previous studies, we saw different dimensions of the profitability of faith.
Now, it is very essential to look at the key to exercising faith, that is, the key that opens the door to the world of faith.
Now, what is the key of faith? It is light from Scripture, that is, light from the Word of God. In the Book of Romans chapter Ten and in Verse Seventeen, the Scripture says, So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. This means, the Word of God enhances faith; where God’s Word abounds, faith is exercised. Other Scriptures that corroborates this truth are:
And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith. Acts 6:7
For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak anything.1 Thessalonians 1:8
So, there is an intricate relationship between faith and the Word of God.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:3.
Beloved, the Word of God is the raw material for faith. Light from the Word of God is the raw material for the operation of faith. Lighted people are faith-filled people; worded people are faith-filled people. You cannot walk in faith if you neglect the Word of God.
My counsel is, study the Word of God consciously and consistently in order to live the lifestyle of faith.
Remember this: Light from the Word of God is the raw material for the operation of faith.
- Trust God for a fresh baptism of hunger for the Word.
- Trust God to see light as you study.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to study Your Word continually in order to access the light that would build my faith in You, in Jesus’ Name.
