DAY 30 THURSDAY: JULY 2020

OPERATING ON THE BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF FAITH!

For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect (Romans 4:14).

As a Christian, God expects you to operate on the basic understanding of faith in life. God referred to Abraham as the father of faith because he operated on the basic understanding of faith in life. The Bible says in the opening text that for if those who are of the law are heirs; faith is made void and the promise made of no effect. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he is supposed to operate on the basic understanding of faith in life. Without operating on the basic understanding of faith, a Christian can never walk with God successfully in life. By operating on the basic understanding of faith is to operate on the understanding of God’s Word and principles in life forever.

Jesus Christ who is our Lord and Master operated on the basic understanding of faith through out His life and ministry here on earth. That is why He stated in Mark 11:23 thus, “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Therefore, it is only the faith that is operated on the basic of understanding that can actually move mountains and life’s challenges in life. The life that is devoid of the understanding and the principles of faith is a life that is indeed dead forever.

Whoever that wants to walk with God and please Him should learn to operate on the basic understanding of faith in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” In fact, whenever a Christian operates on the basic understanding of faith, he learns to please God and receives His reward in life. Failure to operate on the basic understanding and principles of faith is walking contrary to God’s will in life forever.

Daily Tip: When a Christian fails to operate on the basic understanding of faith, he can never walk with God and please Him in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believe and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak (2 Corinthians 4:13).
