KEEP ON BUILDING UP
Acts 20 vs
»»32. ¶And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.-[KJV]«««||
CHRISTIANITY is lived in realms. These are the spiritual and the natural realms. The physical realm is where most people are conversant with. However, the supernatural realm is also real as the natural realm. The fact that you can’t see air doesn’t cancel it existence. Would you be surprised to know that the unseen realm rules the visible world? Yes, that’s true (2 Cor 10:1). So any Christian who lives ignorantly of the spiritual realm will definitely suffer it consequences. There are many factors that help an individual to live well in the physical world. For instance, it takes good nutrition and bodily exercise to build your physical muscles. In the spirit realm too, it also takes the weapon of God’s word to build on your spiritual muscles. The amount of God’s word in you determines your level of faith.
The word builds up faith in you. Eph 6:16 declares that by putting on the “shield of faith” you can QUENCH ALL THE FIERY DARTS OF THE DEVIL. Jesus often told those who needed help that “be it unto you according to your faith”. In His Kingdom, it is always done for you according to your faith, not tears. Yes! Faith is so vital to God that He says without it no one can please Him (Heb 11:6). For the just can only live by faith. Therefore you must spend quality time to build up your faith muscle. You must understand that if you are born again you have been given the measure of faith according to Romans 12:3. But you need to consciously grow your faith by studying God’s word, praying in the Spirit, fasting, loving others; for faith works by love (Gal 5:6).
This is your time to build up your faith by the word of His grace. Don’t wait till you are faced with severe challenges. For nobody prepares at the war front, he would be in danger by then. You prepare before you face a battle. Proverbs 21:31 says “A horse is prepared for the day of battle” (not on the day of battle). Please, you will definitely need your faith one day, because doctors will fail you, so called experts and professionals will disappoint you. But God will never leave nor forsake you. That’s why you must build your faith in Him at all times. Spend time to prepare, else you will spend time repairing.The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
The word of His grace is building me up and giving me inheritance. So I will not fail in the day of adversity. My faith is built up on God and His word. I refuse to fear anything because greater is He that is in me than whoever is in this world. I am building up in Jesus Name. Hallelujah !
Enjoy A Glorious Friday!
