Wisdom For The Day Devotional 12 September 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – The Just Shall Live By Faith
TOPIC: The Just Shall Live By Faith (TREM Devotional 12 September 2022)
“…But the just shall live by his faith.” Habakkuk 2:4 KJV
Wisdom For The Day MESSAGE:
Why is it that believers do not get manifestations? One of the answers to the above questions can be found in the book of Hebrews 1:6: “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.”
A lot of Christian want to please God but the word of God says you cannot please Him without faith. Outside faith, there is no way you can please God. Whoever comes to God must believe that He is! The bible doesn’t say you will see that He is. It doesn’t say until you touch Him. No. You should believe that He is. Without your faith, it is impossible. Believe that God is a rewarder of them who diligently seek Him.
God does not play on word. If the Bible says it is impossible, it means it cannot happen if you have to go by your senses: by what you see, by what you hear, by what you taste, by what you touch, and the things you smell. God is saying: if that is the way you want to live you cannot experience the supernatural.
So, faith is so important when it comes to our relationship with God. Paul emphasized this in his epistle to the Romans. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:16-17 KJV).
It is faith in the gospel that produces power. Right standing has been revealed from faith to faith.
Not from faith to doubt. So, the just must live forever by faith. If you are the just and if you are a believer, you are to live your life by faith, not by sight. You are to live by God’s word. Not by your sight and not by your feelings.
