Practical Faith That Puts You On The Run


The just shall live by faith

According to the scripture, It takes only faith to live and survive. Faith is your life wire that keeps you going in life.

Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith (Hab.2:4).

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith (ROM.1:17).

Anchored on these scriptures, it is revealing that you live by faith. With your faith in line, you’re on the go. Faith makes you to flow in life.

What then is faith?

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen(Heb.11:1)

Faith is the evidence…., your faith is fake if it lacks proves. Result is the proof that your faith is not mere theoretical.

How can faith become my life wire?

Faith can become your life wire only when you are charged constantly. A vehicle can’t be on a motion without something propelling it. It takes energy to move which fuel produces. A cable disconnected from its outlet can’t give power to a gadget, not even to talk about charging it. So also you must be connected and charged to keep pressing on in your Faith’s journey.

Charged people are always on motion like a moving vehicle or a flying airplane. If you are really serious about pressing forward you better plug-in to the frequency of practical faith by demonstrating scriptural injunctions as your lifestyle.

Charged people changes not only themselves but also the world around them. Until you are changed you can’t become a change agent.

Everyone that lives by faith is a visionary.” Every true vision always puts the visionary on the run. You can’t receive a vision from God and sit in one position (when you are not Jonah). As no one obtain a price without running a race, no vision become a reality without a run.

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.(1.Cor.9:24).

God’s word is the carrier of God’s vision. It’s the incoming of the word of God that emits light that charges or propels people for a run. The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple(Psalm.119:130).

Here is what Jeremiah says,

Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay (Jer.20:9).

Faith is not a dormant force, faith is a moving or doing force. Your faith truly becomes a life wire when you are acting inline with the word of God. Hear what Jeremiah says, the word of God was in his heart like a fire shut up into his bones that he could not stay. A true vision will always make you to act.

Also understand that you can’t receive anything from God without your faith in line no matter how experienced or professional you are serving God.

But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Heb.11:6).

The body of Christ needs to come off theoretical faith and embrace the practical faith. This is that kind of faith tears roof. And violent/roof tearing faith will always secures His attention any day anytime anywhere. It takes some degree of violent to move God.

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.(Mat.11:12)

How To Discover Your Calling And Purpose In Life

God’s way is different from men’s way. As heaven is far away from earth, so is His ways distant from our ways. It will be very sad if you spend your lifetime doing what you’re not ordained to do.

In our culture, many people ended up doing what they did not study in higher institutions. It’s God’s way to bless people with their talents and gifts. Hear this, what will make you to become somebody in life is that talent which you’ve not discovered yet.

Frankly speaking, there is no such thing as useless person or field. You’re not inferior to anybody. If I need you; you also need me.

But the sad thing is that many people are living a shapeless life due to their inadequate knowledge about their callings in life.

Like the saying of a wise man, the grave yard is the place where most talented people reside. Of a truth, many talents have gone unheard buried in the deepest place under the earth (I wrote this post so that this will not be your portion).

What Are The Ways To Discover Your Calling?

  • Ask God For Direction – Out of sheer ignorance, Many people have dived into what they are not called to do in life but later regretted by asking God to come and finished what He did not start in the first place. I must warn here, don’t ever ask God to work out the plan He was not involved. Rather, ask God to give you His plan for your life. You can get this done by going into prayer and fasting for 3/7 days or as you are inspired by the Holy Spirit. “And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as noonday.” The cheapest way to access divine direction is prayer and fasting. It helps to dispel the darkness around your career, marriage and future; illuminates your path. Then, you become a pathfinder. It’s your birth right to have access to God’s plan for your life. But unfortunately, many born-again Christians have sold the birth rights for the feeding of the belly the same way Esau sold his birthright to Jacob – even though everyone has been blaming Esau for selling his.
  • Faith (action) – The best definition you can give to faith is “action.” It’s God’s style to leads His people by their actions – step by step, God leads – If God reveals a step to you, until you follow that step, don’t expect the revelation of another step. God knows you more than you know about yourself. He knows you right from your mother’s womb (Jer. 1:5). And God has the records about your past, present and future. The secret of your future is in His hands. But if God shows you how tall the mountain is, obviously, you’ll be discouraged climbing. Friend, release yourself from the shackles of ignorance and embrace God in obedience as He leads you step by step.
