For the past month and a half, our Pastor, Joseph Hewitt has been teaching us about Spiritual Fruitfulness. Now the fruit of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, gentleness, meekness, temperance, and Faith. (Galations 5:22,23)
You know where I am going, Faith. It is a powerful weapon against the enemy. I believe that Faith is so powerful that nothing can stand in its way. Faith can be a positive or a negative. The activation of your faith is totally up to you. You can have no faith, little faith, great faith or so great faith. What is that thing that you are praying diligently about, speak it in Faith. When you wake up each morning, confirm in the spirit that God has already done it. Don't doubt, never waiver. Rise up knowing, not feeling, but knowing God is on your side.
I have found that Faith is a fruit, a spirit, a healer, a shield, a breastplate and a gift. We walk by faith, stand in faith, possess faith, speak in faith, see our faith. It can save us, can be weak or strong, is a justifier, and it only takes a little to move mountains.
But what is Faith to you, what does this really mean?
I have been admonished and encouraged to have it and to walk in it, to believe and to activate it.
It is more than just hoping and believing, it is knowing that the Power of God rests in each of us and that is desire is to see each one of His children blessed, delivered and set free from all bondages and hinderances.
It is important to God that we please Him, but without Faith, it is impossible. Heb 11:6.
You may ask, "How do I get Faith?, How do I know I have Faith?" Well knowing the Lord through His Word strengthens your faith and you. Hearing the Word and reading it, helps confirm your knowledge of Him and all of us are given a measure of Faith. How you cultivate and water your fruit is up to you.
I suggest that you get in the Word and look up all the scriptures on faith, there are about 247 verses in the King James Version of the Bible. I assure you that one of them will speak directly to you. Mediate on God's Word today and grow your fruit through His Word.
