Christians are expected to demonstrate unwavering faith in God, since it will earn us victory at all times.
Believers to learn from Apostle Paul in the bible, who demonstrated remarkable faith during a difficult time.
A man slumbered to death when Paul was preaching; the situation was horrific, but Paul was confident in God and put the situation under control.
Paul realized that Satan intended to distract him; therefore he paid him no attention, but focused on finishing his sermon.
Paul finished his sermon without distraction, and later took a bold step to demonstrate his spiritual gift to raise the dead person back to life.
The scripture reported,
“Paul went down, fell on him (the dead man), and embracing him said, “Do not trouble yourselves, for his life is in him.”
Now when he had come up, had broken bread and eaten, and talked a long while, even till daybreak, he departed.
And they brought the young man in alive, and they were not a little comforted” (Acts 20:10-12 NKJV).
Lesson on Unwavering Faith
Christians must maintain confidence in God. We must also appreciate our spiritual gifts and demonstrate them boldly.
Christians are God’s anointed children blessed with strength to demonstrate extra ordinary gifts for the purpose of glorifying God, and benefitting people.
The Spirit of God that dwells in us will help us to operate valiantly and have victory.
The Holy Spirit will help us to make impossibility becomes possibilities!
God’s Power is Needed to have Success
Believers must pray to possess unwavering faith to demonstrate and enjoy God’s power!
God’s power will fully manifest in us when we trust him.
Christians will stay afloat over any challenge when faith in God (transformed to power) is exercised.
In as much the Spirit of God rules us, we will always have upper hands over our challenges.
No limit to what a Christian can achieve when he/she trust God: Dead can come back to life, and a sick person can receive his healing.
The list of God’s goodness demonstrated through unwavering faith is endless.
Pray to Have Unwavering Faith in God
Dear God please increase my faith, and help me to trust you in all situations so that I can live an overcomer’s life.
Let your Holy Spirit empower me to demonstrate unwavering faith in all situations.
Let faith exercise turns to become my testimony, and give me reasons to praise your Holy Name.
For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen!
