Topic: The Place Of Faith In Exploits [6th September 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. – Luke 17:6
Thought For The Day: Exploits are results that break existing records and set new ones.
Previously, we saw the definitions of faith. We saw that faith is the partnership of humanity with Divinity for the establishment of possibilities on the earth amongst many others.
Having understood faith, it is necessary to understand the products of faith or what faith will do in the life of a Christian.
Now, one of the products of faith is that, faith is the highway to a world of exploits (Hebrews 11:32-34). By faith, as we can see from the above scripture, men of old subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouth of lions, quenched the violence of the fire, escaped the edge of the sword, waxed valiant in fight and were made strong. This means, faith is the highway to a world of exploits.
Now, if faith is a highway to a world of exploit; the question is, what is exploit? I will give you three definitions of exploit:
(a) Exploits are Attention-Commanding Results
These are results that command the attention of people, government and even the devil; they are results that even the devil cannot claim ignorance of.
(b) Exploits are Record-Breaking, Record-Making and Record-Setting Results
Exploits are results that break existing records and set new ones. To do exploit is to do what nobody else has ever done before.
(c) Exploits are Earth-Shaking and Ground-Breaking Results
Exploits are results that shake the earth and break the grounds; it is an earthquake dimension of results and impact (Acts 16:25).
Beloved, in order to live a life of exploits, you must have solid faith in God. My counsel is, develop a solid faith in God in order to shake your world for God.
Remember this: Exploits are results that break existing records and set new ones.
1. Make up your mind to do great exploits for God in your-lifetime.
2. Engage the weapon of faith that is necessary for ground-breaking exploits and impacts.
Prayer: I receive grace for earth-shaking dimensions of exploit. I connect to the spirit and power of faith for great exploits, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
