Faith in God moves mountains, gives the assurance of salvation, offers strength in times of trouble, administers justice, heals the sick and motivates believers to achieve their dreams. Thus, faith is a God-given tool for those who want to follow and represent Him on earth.
Should not those who live by faith in the promises of God have a better quality of life compared to those who do not use faith at all?
Yes, of course!
I have a question for you: What has your faith in God done for you?
Think about the answer for a moment before you read further.
In case you realise that you have accomplished very little or nothing at all, I want to share with you a possible reason why you have so little in your life.
✎ ❝And so it is written, ❝The first man Adam became a living being .❞ The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven .❞
(1 Corinthians 15:45-47)
The living being – known as a natural man – is one who believes, but in a natural way. The fact that he is natural means he does not know how to separate his faith from what he feels, therefore doubts are powerful opponents in his daily life.
The life-giving spirit – known as the second man or the heavenly man – is a person who does not live by what he sees, feels, or senses. His mind is in God. When facing adversity, trials and persecutions of all kinds, he never stops or gives up. He is a person of sound mind, who lives each and every minute by his trust in God’s promises.
How important is it today to be a life-giving spirit?
To be able to see beyond the storm level and to keep going, even when everyone says to you, there is no way?
Heroes of faith, such as Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, had the holy anointing to carry forward the will of God. The Lord Jesus came to revolutionise the lives of those who would put their faith into action – the new birth.
The living being has a natural birth. The life-giving spirit is born of God.
Now I ask you, which one of the two will overcome challenges – the natural man or the heavenly man?
If your answer is the heavenly, you are right!
But again, one more question: Which of the two are you, natural or heavenly?
The natural man does not have what it takes to defeat the world. He does not have in him the ability to handle the harshness of the desert.
Now we understand better this verse:
✎ ❝ When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. But when a stronger than he comes upon him and overcomes him, he takes from him all his armour in which he trusted, and divides his spoils.❞ (Luke 11:21-22)
Who is the stronger man?
The life-giving spirit man!
Therefore, do not waste your time any more. Invest in your new birth, so you can become a fountain of life for those around you.
God bless you.
