Topic: How Faith Works [Seeds of Destiny 10 September 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37
Thought For The Day: Someone’s testimony is another person’s prophecy.
It has been established that faith is an essential component of the Christian life. It is one thing to know that faith is very important in life and destiny, and it is another thing to know how faith works. The understanding of how faith works is critical to the release of faith in our Christian life. Therefore, it is very important to know how faith works.
Now, how does faith work?
1. By Celebrating Faith Confirmations
The celebration of faith confirmations involves giving testimonies of what God has done, and testimonies are faith builders. For example, when God sent an Angel to tell Mary of His plan for her to give birth to Jesus Christ, Mary responded by asking the angel, ‘How can this be seeing that I know not a man?’ (Luke 1:34). The Angel gave her a testimony of what God had already done in the life of Elizabeth; he told her that Elizabeth, her cousin who was called barren, was already six months pregnant with a child. (Luke 1:35-36). And that cleared her doubt (Luke 1:38).
Beloved, testimonies are faith boosters; whatever God does for one person is clue to what He would do for another person; testimonies have reproductive capacities. Someone’s testimony is another person’s prophecy.
- By Maintaining Faith Associations
Association brings assimilation and affects conviction. Who you walk with determines what you can believe; company affects mind-set. People who hang together think alike, the right conviction can be destroyed by the wrong association.
My counsel is, combine faith confirmations with faith associations and you will see the production of active faith in your life.
Remember this: Someone’s testimony is another person’s prophecy.
1. Make up your mind to share/give testimonies of God’s acts of faithfulness in your life or in the lives of other people.
2. Relate with people of solid faith and conviction.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask for the grace to relate the testimonies of Your Acts of goodness in my life to other people. Connect me to people of solid faith and conviction, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
