“For we walk by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV

Faith is the access, the medium by which we tap into God’s resources. That’s why God gave you faith the day you are saved. I am not talking about human faith, but supernatural faith. It is faith that receives what the Grace of has supplied. The believer is called to walk by faith and not by sight. Without faith, we cannot please Him and without faith, we cannot access what the Grace of God has provided.

“By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand and rejoice” (Romans 5:2 KJV).

It was Paul who gave us a great insight into the walk of faith in his first letter to the church in Corinth. Hear him:

“And my speech and my preaching were not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” (v 4,5 KJV).

That means faith can stand in the wisdom of men. When your faith stands in the wisdom of men it has the margin for failure. No matter how good man is, there is always an end to what man can achieve. You will be surprised how many people in the church who have been injured for long by building their faith on what they can see, hear, touch, taste or feel. They say that until I see it I will not believe it.

Your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. And Jesus is the power of God! “But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God” (1Corinthians 1:24). The faith that stands in the power of God has no margin for failure. It will always produce.

I declare that your faith will produce. And the power of God shall be made manifest in your life.
