OPEN HEAVEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR OCTOBER 14, 2022 (ACTING BY FAITH?)
TOPIC: ACTING BY FAITH?
“Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.” – (Matthew 9:29)
READ: Romans 4:16-20 (KJV)
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. – (Hebrews 11:6)
Many people do not receive from God because they do not have faith. In one of our Holy Ghost Services at the Redemption Camp in Nigeria, God said He wanted to heal people with back pains, so He told me to call them out. When they came out, God told me to dance round them. Ridiculous as it seemed, I obeyed. I danced round them and at some point, God told me to stop. Then He said, “Ask them to bend their backs now”. I did so, and they could touch their toes; the back pains were gone.
You need faith to get miracles. You need to believe Him even when what He is saying seems ridiculous. In Matthew 14:25-31, Jesus told Peter to come and walk on water and Peter jumped into the sea immediately. As long as he wasn’t considering the storm, he was walking on the water. The moment he considered the storm, however, he began to sink.
If we want to enjoy miracles from God, we must shut our eyes and ears to the reasons why it may not happen. We must just believe God for what He has said and ignore everything else. If Abraham had considered his age, he would not have fathered a child, but Romans 4:19 says: And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:
In Mark 3:1-5, Jesus told the man with the withered hand to stretch it forth. If the man had refused to stretch his hand, he would have missed his miracle. Imagine if Peter had questioned the Lord when Jesus told him to cast his net into the water even though he had fished all night and caught nothing (Luke 5:4-6). You don’t need to bother your head about how God will do it; just obey and you will see the miracle, otherwise, you would lose it.
Are you acting by faith?
