THE MATERIAL FOR FAITH!;
(God’s Word—That’s All You Need)
TO THE BIBLE Acts 20:32 NIV
“Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.”
At a construction site, you’re likely to find materials like mortar, steel, wood, glass, sand, bricks, etc. These are all necessary to put up a structure, but in building our faith as Christians, the Word of God is the only material given us by God to do so (Romans 10:17). This means the more of God’s Word you receive into your spirit, meditate on, and put to work, the greater your faith.
Just as builders lay block upon block and hold them firm with cement, that’s the same way you build your faith and hold it firm with the Word of God in your spirit. As you continually give yourself to studying and meditating on God’s Word, faith is stirred in your heart and you discover that absolutely anything is possible unto you! The Word has inherent ability to produce all that it says. So, as you listen to the Word and fill your heart with it, faith will rise in you like a giant.
This is the reason God seeks to impart His Word to your spirit. It’s the only material you require to build and bolster your faith in order to live a successful life. So today, just as Paul did with the saints at Ephesus, I commend you to God and to the Word of His grace, which is able to build you up, and give you an inheritance among the sanctified.
Romans 10:17, Colossians 3:16
I rule, reign, and dominate my world by the faith of God in my spirit! My faith is alive and produces results today, because the Word of God is in my heart and in my mouth. As I speak it forth, circumstances align with God’s perfect will for my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
