“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:4-5, KJV).
The concept of faith is a spiritual issue. It is the sense with which you use to smell, feel, taste, see and touch the unseen realm. With faith the spiritual world becomes real to you. And as you know, without it you cannot please God. The absence of faith is the absence of believe in an unseen God.
Faith is a spiritual principle. It is the response of the human spirit to the word of God. The word fuels the growth and development of your faith. With the word of God you can build your faith from weak to strong and from small to big. Remember that it takes faith to live the life of a believer. All of your inheritance in Christ can only be accessed by faith.
But there is problem when you assume that your faith is resting on the power of God because you think you’ve been hearing the right word in church. Be not deceived, there is the wisdom of men preached as God’s word. Never mistake motivational preaching for the word of God. It is okay to get motivated my men’s wisdom and philosophy for successful living. It is good but lacks power.
If you want to build your faith, and grow in your walk with God, let it be on the word of God. You’ve got to know the voice of the bible to be able to differentiate man’s wisdom from God’s word. The word of God is spirit and life. The word expresses Himself in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power. Look for a church where the word of God is preached so your faith can produce results. Let your faith, like a ladder rest on the right wall of God’s word to take you higher. How was your day my friend. #BeInspired.
