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)

Nelson Mandela – An Exemplar Of A Visionary


Mandela is an exemplar of a visionary

The great Nelson Mandela was a man of vision. In the heat of apartheid, the apartheid people dug a hole and put him inside and they were urinating on him. What He saw in the prison should have killed him – though, Mandela’s body was dying but his vision was alive. He said, one day I will become the president of this country.

You can’t have a vision and not package yourself dangerously in order to get there. Joseph was a man of vision. He knew that Potiphar house was only a passage, so he package himself dangerously because he knew where he was going. Even in the prison, he was a reigning king in his mind.

A Genuine Vision Will Put You On The Run

The flight of destiny is talking off

Every true vision will always put the visionary on the run. You can’t have vision and be doing nothing in order to get there. When they say your flight, for example, an international flight, is taking off by so so so time; you will do everything in order to meet up, you will leave your food behind.

The flight of destiny is about to take off, are you still loitering around street, jesting everywhere doing nothing to show that you don’t want to miss the flight?

Your Youthful Age Is Only Time-Bound & Your Energy Level Diminishes As You Grow

Your energy level diminish as you grow

There is a time and season for everything, there are some things that you can do now that you won’t be able to do when you become old. For instance, it will be funny enough to see an old man whose age is like 60, for instance, to say that he wants to choose a career in the field Athlete. Time has passed. It has become late.

Most of the people called stars are those that discovered where they belong on time. Timely discovered purpose is the key to your fulfilment in life.

A Wise Man Once Said, The Grave Is Where The Most Talented People Can Be Found

There are many great talents that have died unheard, buried and forgotten in deepest place under the earth. There are many great voices that have been silenced, great messages “un-preached” and many great songs unsung. What talent is yours? Have you ever discovered yourself?. In most cases, God lifts people by there talents. You can study Pharmacology or ‘Chemistrology‘ and ended up becoming a singer. That’s how strange God’s ways are.

I must educate you here, no matter which area of specialization you may find yourself, you’re not inferior to anybody – never see yourself like a grasshopper, perhaps, is the way you perceive yourself that others will perceive you.

There is no profession that is inferior to the other. if you need me, I will also need you. I read Economics, but I landed in the digital world without any experience, producing biblical contents, and setting up professional websites for my clients.

Find time to seek God to show you what your calling is

Find time to seek God to show you where you truly belong. Enter into prayer and fasting so that God will reveal your calling to you. It will become a terrible thing to spend a quantum numbers of years toiling and struggling, battling with one area that is not producing any result. Don’t be afraid to lay off whatsoever is not your calling (and when you have found your place on life don’t give up until your breakthrough arrived).

Explore. Discover. There is a unique gift inside of you that God has deposited there. Don’t die with it. Let it shines to the whole world. The world needs you. You’re a global citizen – you’re not a local champion – God says He will lift you high above all the nations of the earth (Deu.28:2).

There Is Always A Light In The End Of The Tunnel

Vision delayed is not synonymous to vision denied. Every true vision will surely come to pass – as long as the visionary is on the run – even though it tarries, press on. Put your life inline with God. There is no weeping under the sun that is permitted to go beyond a night. Everything that has a beginning will surely come to an end. It’s not going to be like this forever. Trust me. Obey, believe, be faithful.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. -Habakkuk.2:3

It always seem impossible until it Is done
