STICK TO YOUR FAITH!
(You Need Prevailing Faith To Win In Life);
TO THE BIBLE Romans 10:17 NIV
“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”
Let me tell you an intriguing story about prevailing faith. Several years ago, there was this young guy who wanted to study law at the university where I was a student at the time, but he was unable to gain admission. He had prayed and prophesied, but each time he went to the admissions office, he was denied.
I knew the problem was that he hadn’t yet grown his faith strong enough for it to prevail in that situation, so I thought to give him the opportunity to strengthen his faith. He came to my room one evening and I slotted an audio message on faith in the tape player and told him: “Listen to this until faith comes. If faith doesn’t come, you’re not leaving this room!” Then I stepped outside the room, locked the door, and kept the keys in my pocket.
I checked at intervals to know what was going on, and by night-time, he was declaring God’s Word so loudly and boldly that I was sure he was full of faith. So, I opened the door and let him out. Guess what? After praying and prophesying the next morning, he went to the admissions office and sure enough, he got his admission to study Law. He went on to become a judge.
What does this tell you? For your faith to prevail such that you win all the time, you need to feed on the Word. You need to keep bombarding your spirit with the Word until it literally oozes out of your being! That’s how to grow your faith to triumph—you get the Word into your system so much that you can only think, talk, and live the Word!
Matthew 17:19-20 CEV; John 8:31 MSG
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you because every time your Word enters into my spirit, It produces in me strong faith—such faith that works all the time. Today, as I give myself to the ministry of the Word— listening, meditating and doing what it says, I triumph in all things and my profiting appears to all, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
