PROPHETIC WORD: Receive undefeatable faith by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
We have the power gifts which are divided into three namely: the gift of faith, gift of healing and the gift of miracles. These gifts display divine power. They make it very clear that God is the Almighty that can do all things. They are supernatural, extraordinary and miraculous in manifestation. They all work through God’s people who have been gifted.
All gifts are important but the gift of faith is of utmost significance. Why? You may ask. The Bible says in the book of Hebrews 11:6, “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.”
In essence, all other gifts cannot be manifested effectively without faith. What qualified all the heroes listed in Hebrews chapter 11 is their gift of faith. They had unwavering faith in the word of God. They had a firm and unshaken belief that whatsoever He said, He would surely do.
Faith is the bedrock of our salvation. Everyone that confesses Jesus Christ as his or her personal Lord and Saviour can do so only because he or she believes that Jesus Christ is the Saviour sent from God (Romans 10:10). Faith in God works wonders.
Many people pray, speak in tongues, praise and do all kinds of spiritual activities and yet they cannot feel the move of God in their lives and situations because they lack faith. What is faith? It is a strong feeling of trust in someone or something. Faith is an unshaken belief in something whether you can see it or not. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
To build a deep and meaningful relationship with God, faith in Him cannot be underestimated. The gift of faith distinguished Abraham, Moses, Elijah, Daniel and the apostles. Beloved, ask God for the gift of faith today. It will distinguish you, in Jesus’ name.
1. O Lord, help me to build my faith, in the name of Jesus.
2. I bind and cast out every spirit of unbelief in the word of God, in the name of Jesus.
3. Anything in my life limiting the power of God, die, in the name of Jesus.
4. Every spirit of fear in my life, lose your hold, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every power working against my peace of mind, die, in the name of Jesus.
6. O Lord, do Your wonders in my life today, in the name of Jesus.
7. I refuse to doubt God and His word, in the name of Jesus.
