God doesn’t want anyone to become stagnant. Rather He wants every one of us to grow our faith in Him on a daily basis. For it is a strong belief or trust we have in God.
Marks 16:17-18 which says. And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name, they will drive out demons. in my name, they will speak in new tongues.
They will pick up snakes with their hands, and if they drink any deadly poison, It will not hurt them. They will lay their hands on sick, and they will recover.
The above-mentioned signs shall follow us because we have believed. Some of us don’t even remember that there are signs following us because of our faith.
The word Faith simply means facing the facts. And not to be afraid, or been discouraged by those facts.
Faith can also be described as the link or bridge between where I am and the place God is taking me to.
GOD USES SIGNS TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE IN HIM.
According to the book of Exodus 4:1-9,29-31, Moses answered, Lord, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say.
The Lord did not appear to you’?”. Moses required for a sign because he knows God as one who loves to use signs to make His people believe in Him.
The supernatural signs and wonders Moses and other great men of God performed encouraged the children of Israel to move ahead.
Even those who did not witness the signs were often reminded of the great power of God to encourage them.
However, we need signs to enable us to convert souls to God. Our Lord Jesus Christ performed great signs while he was ministering here on earth.
The signs attracted a multitude of people who came out to hear Him and also to receive their healing, many of them believed when they saw the signs.
In addition to that, the disciples performed signs during their days, and when people saw the signs, they believed.
Signs encourage believers and also help in populating the kingdom of God. Indeed, why there are few signs and wonders today.
It is because many of us are having little faith, while some are merchandising it, some are also doing it as if it’s magic.
But despite all these, we still have real signs and wonders from above. Little faith does not respond to emergency calls.
Even if you manage to apply it, it can not produce a result. But strong faith reacts immediately and ever willing to perform a miracle.
Truly, if you have a strong faith you will know. Let us face the facts; most believers are operating under the influence of little faith.
Jesus our Lord commanded us to occupy till He comes. The big question here is, are you actually occupying? A greater number of Christians are yet to occupy.
We need strong faith to occupy, and also to operate in the supernatural, which only comes by confessing reading, studying, and doing the word of God. For the Bible says.
Without faith, it’s impossible to please God.
God said to Joshua, this book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night.
That thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein. And when you do that, thou shalt make thy way prosperous. And then thou shalt have good success.
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and courageous, do not be frightened. And do not be dismayed. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:8-9.
Every believer is expected to grow his faith after repentance. From little faith or weak faith to a strong faith.
Strong faith does not come by trial and error method; certainly, you must work it out and be sure of receiving it.
You are destined to enjoy divine health. Yet you are under the bondage of sickness. Why should you allow that? Truly, you are destined to prosper and succeed.
Are you under the bondage of sin? That you don’t know how to get out of it again. You are too weak that you can not read your Bible, pray, or fast.
Talk more about preaching the word of God to the dying souls. This situation has put you in a state of confusion and frustration.
And you have seen yourself as a failure, that can never make it again. Because there is no way a Christian can do or obey the word of God with little faith.
THERE IS STILL HOPE FOR YOU:
All you need to do now is to believe God. Also, believe that He has the power to do all things. Get up from where you are now and move to that place God wants you to be.
And confess to Him by saying am sorry Lord, forgive me. Because our heavenly father is still in the business of reconciliation and acceptance.
Romans 10:10. For, with our heart, we believe unto righteousness; but, with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.
As you do that, may those things that have caged you down fly away from your life. Which includes doubt, fear, worry, sickness, weakness, infirmities, failure, frustration, sorrow, poverty, spiritual bondage, etc.
For whosoever that is in Christ, is a new creature, old things are passed away. Behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17.
