EXERCISING YOUR FAITH (2)

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith”   –      Romans 1:17

LIGHT FOR NOW: Faith is a spiritual currency for spiritual transactions.

Faith is the currency in which we cash out what God has made available to and for us in the treasures of His kingdom. The Bible says in Ephesians 1:3 that we have all been blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ but it takes the faith of Christ in us to cause the blessings to come to manifestation. The believer in Christ can exercise or activate his faith by acknowledging what he already has. This is to say that you must know what God has freely given to you in Christ Jesus. The believer in Christ Jesus does not have a faith problem. He is a believer because he believed, which is faith. The only problem a believer has is a knowledge problem. If your father deposits some money in your bank account for you, as long as you are not aware or have the knowledge that such money has been deposited in your account, and do not take steps to cash it; you will still go about murmuring and complaining until you come to the reality of what has been deposited in the account for you.

Apostle Paul in Philemon 1:6 says, “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing that is in you in Christ Jesus”. This means that for your faith to be active or effectual, you must know the good things that are in Christ because the same good things are in you too. And what are those good things that are in Christ? They are salvation, righteousness, divine health, victory, glory, wisdom, knowledge, power, miracles, honour, prosperity etc. The lists of the good things that are in Christ are endless but to maximize them, you must come to the knowledge that they are yours. By so doing, you exercise your faith and appropriate all that Christ has done for and in you.

INSTRUCTION: Exercise your faith by acknowledging every good thing that is in you in Christ Jesus.

PRAYER: Lord, I acknowledge every good thing that is me because Christ dwells in me, in Jesus Name.  Amen.

QUOTE: Faith is to God what fear is to Satan.
