Hebrew 11:32 - 34 says "And what more shall I say? Time will not allow me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and the prophets, 33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice,and obtained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the raging fire, and escaped the edge of the sword; who gained strength from weakness, became mighty in battle, and put foreign armies to flight"
According to Hebrews 11:33, fulfillment of God promises comes mainly through faith in God. In other words, those who have faith in God receives the promises and are able to conquer kingdoms.
You and I are able to do exploits based on the level of our faith. The worth of your faith in God determines how far you can go ahead.
2 Peter 3:18 and 2 Peter 1: 2 admonished us to grow in the Grace of God.
"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen." 2 Peter 3:18
"Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord." 2 Peter 1: 2
As long as we are breathing, our faith in God can grow. It can get stronger. Your faith level determines what you will ask God in prayer, your achievements in life,
How to add value to our faith
Fear activates the enemy while Faith activates God.
Through prayer, we communicate with God and add value to our faith. By praying always, we grow in faith.
2. Listening to anointed messages
By listening to inspired messages ministered by other Christians, we learn from their journey of faith and are encouraged in God. This also helps our faith in God to grow.
3. Listening to worship songs
Inspiration christian songs usually motivates and lead one to the worship atmosphere. It also brighten your mood, inspires and lift your spirits, especially when you feel down. You can find good christian songs on YouTube.
4. Reading the Word of God
Similar to listening to anointed messages ministered by the called men of God, the Bible is our ultimate life guide. No one is exempted from using this powerful Living Word. When you read the Word of God, you are encouraged in God. This helps our faith in God to grow.
Hebrews 4:12 "For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires."
Great notable men in the Bible believed God and in return, God blessed them to do exploits. By studying the Word of God, our faith in God grows and we receive grace to pray in faith. Remember that prayer without faith is just an exercise. Most times, those kinds of prayers said out of faith are only answered by grace of God. In fact, an answered prayer without faith is a result of uncommon grace of God.
On a final note, let your faith be bigger than your fears. In life, every successful man once failed, at least one. So, hold on to God and realise your dreams.
When was the last time you added value to your faith?
What is the worth of your faith? Is it big enough to do exploits?
