“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith” (I John 5:4).
God has written the whole of the 11th chapter in the book of Hebrews for Faith. Without your knowledge, the faith will be secreted from your heart like a fountain. Great huge plans, visions will reach you in God’s Name. So, plan huge things for God and execute them also.
Solomon said, “And the temple which I build will be great, for our God is greater than all gods”. You will also be inspired in your heart by God to do great things for him.
Since this Spirit of faith was in the devotee William Carey, he crossed over to India as a missionary. He expected great things from God. During that time, it was pretty hard to learn even one language in India but with faith, he learnt many languages and attained expertise too in them. He translated the Scripture into those languages. William Carey was able to carry out great things. William Carey was a poor cobbler and if he was able to establish a college in his name, how could this happen? What else could be the reason if it is not because of his faith?
Those who practise faith see God as an Almighty. In their sight, He looks great, glorious and powerful. They see Him as the Creator and one who does wonders. Not only that. They fully rely on Him.
With the faith given to you by God, attach your declaration of faith. See! By faith, we understand that the worlds were formed by the word of God (Hebrews 11:3). Not only the faith; the Word of God was also attached to it. Once God said, “Let there be” the sun which is the flames of fire weighing crores of tons was created. The stars and the moon were also created. Both visible and invisible things and the whole of the universe were created. After creation what was the faith of God? D God saw what He created was good.
In accordance with His faith, God created you in His image. If it is so that He had given His form to you, His faith also should descend to you. Is it not?
How did Paul the Apostle do great things for God? How was he able to travel to so many nations and meet thousands of souls? Is it not because God had done the miracles, holding his hands? You will also do great things for God.
To meditate: “You may wage the good warfare, having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck” (I Timothy 1:18, 19).
