Topic: Live By Faith [TREM Devotional 21 June 2020]
”Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.” Acts 27:25 KJV
In all of his challenges, Paul remained unperturbed because he knew that the storm could not stop him. He knew because he had received a revelation. He had an unshakeable faith in what God has spoken to Him.
This was the same situation that Jesus was when they were in a storm and he was fast asleep in the boat. He knew that they will pass to the other side.
So, the more revelation you receive, the more you can stand. Though the enemy will attack you, you will certainly succeed.
So, you see that the Word of God was being fulfilled in the life of Paul in that he was on his way to Rome. God also made him know that the journey will be dangerous. As believers, we are expected to walk by faith. We don’t walk by sight. The just shall live by faith. It is all over the scriptures. Romans1:16-17 says: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one 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.”
Beloved, God cannot tell you to live by what you don’t have. You already have faith. When did you have faith? Ephesians 2:8 declares: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
In other words, God gave you the supernatural faith the day you were saved otherwise you could not have been saved. It is a gift of God. You have faith! Begin now to use your faith.
