DAY 9 THURSDAY: SEPTEMBER 2021

YOUR FAITH GROWS BY YOUR KNOWLEDGE!

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).

Every Christian is expected to take note of the fact that his faith grows by his knowledge and understanding of the Word of God in life. Your faith in God can never grow beyond your knowledge and understanding of the Scriptures in life. The greater the Rhema of God in your spirit, the higher your faith grows and becomes in life. The Bible says in the opening text that so then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that his faith in God is expected to grow by the extent of his knowledge and understanding of the Scriptures in life. Absolute faith in God’s Word boosts one’s knowledge and wisdom in life forever.

The knowledge and understanding of the Scriptures is able to build up your faith in God and give you inheritance in Christ Jesus. That is why the Bible says in Acts 20:32, “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” Therefore, the knowledge and understanding of God’s Word is the grace that builds up a Christian’s faith in life. Until your knowledge of the Scriptures increases, you are not yet entitled to your inheritance in life. Hence, faith absolutely boosts one’s knowledge and knowledge opens the gate to one’s inheritance in life forever.

The knowledge and understanding of the Scriptures gives you a better revelation and wisdom of God in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Ephesians 1:17, “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.” In fact, the wisdom and the revelation of the knowledge of God will greatly increase one’s faith in life. The knowledge and understanding of God is the wisdom that enhances your faith in the Lord to grow faster in life. The absolute knowledge of God boosts one’s faith for a victorious Christian living in Christ Jesus forever.

Daily Tip: The level of your knowledge and understanding of God determines the extent of growth of your faith in the Lord forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints (Ephesians 1:18).
