Topic: You Have The Measure Of Faith [TREM Devotional 2 September 2020]
Click HERE for Previous MESSAGES by Bishop Mike Okonkwo
“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” Romans 12:3 KJV
According to our bible text today: “….God has dealt to every man the measure of faith”. Are you among those classified as every man? Then you have the measure of faith. So no believer has an excuse. What you do with your measure is your business. You can either develop it or you can leave it to become dormant without producing. But just like exercise energizes you physically, the same way exercising of your faith will energize, strengthen and equip your spiritual man. If you fail to exercise, your body will become flabby and you’ll find it difficult to carry yourself. But when you are exercising regularly, you’ll carry yourself easily and you’ll look healthier.
Your faith becomes healthier as you exercise it. You exercise it by using it. Faith connects you to Jehovah. You must never allow your faith to become dormant. Faith helps you to function on the superior platform. You will be swimming while others are drowning. And when you are flying and there is problem in the air, your plane will be flying very well. That is what happens with faith.
Faith only sees God’s Word! It does not see anything else. Faith sees nothing other than the Word. It sees the end of a thing from the beginning. And once you’ve seen the end, forget about what everybody has to say. That is why God will first give you the vision of your life and no other person. By that, God is giving you an insight into what He has concluded. That is what faith does. It gives you insight. That is why He said to Abraham as far as your eye can see. If you can see, it is possible.
