KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 4:19 “And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb”:
Our key scripture gives us a good clue on how to avoid having a weak faith. It says Abraham was not weak in faith; how? He did not consider or look at his body which was as good as dead,when he was a hundred years old, and neither the deadness of Sarah’s womb.
This is a very important lesson to learn so we do not weaken our faith. Faith, although very potent and can achieve amazing feats, can be easily weakened and brought to zero if you look at the naturally negative things.
The lady who is trusting God fora husband must not look at the wrinkles on her face. She must not count the years rolling by. The couple expecting a miracle baby must stop looking at their age and other negative symptoms. Don’t look at your weak and hurting body if you expect to receive a miracle healing. They would weaken your faith.
In Matthew 14:30 the Bible said”But when he saw the wind boisterous he was afraid and beginning to sink he cried saying Lord save me”. The preceding story is about Peter, he started walking on the water when the Lord asked him to come. He walked quite a distance because when he called on the Lord to save him, the Lord just stretched his hand to lift him. Peter’s faith was deflated by what he saw.Faith is strengthened by the word of God. Abraham kept considering the promise of God and gave glory to God. This made his faith strong. He called himself father of many nations. Please learn once again faith is a spiritual supernatural virtue. It has nothing to do with physical natural situations.Whether the condition is improving or delaying it add nothing to faith. Faith ONLY thrives on the word of God. It should never be on how things are improving or not improving.
Tell yourself I will not look at the natural conditions, even if it is improving, my sole consideration is the word of God. Listen faith COMETH by hearing and hearing by the word of God(Romans 10:17). Faith is not a product of the natural state of affairs
Get your faith firm and strong by focusing on the word.
Note: the faith that is solely dependent on the word is real and can’t fail.
The word of God is my only source of my faith. I feed on the word, talk about the word and act on the word. This always brings me amazing results.
Romans 4:20-21 ” He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith,giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform”.
2 Corinthians 3:18 ” But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”.
