TOPIC: FAITH FOR THE JOURNEY (IV)
Fire Scripture: Matthew 8:5-10
In our discourse yesterday, we emphasised that God has special promises for those who exercise faith and indeed rewards acts of faith. We identiﬁed answer to prayer and sonship as two beneﬁts or rewards of faith. Let us examine more of these beneﬁts today. Another beneﬁt you stand to gain for exercising faith in God is spiritual inheritance.
James 2:5 conﬁrms this: “Hearken my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” Faith earns you spiritual inheritance: the Living Water, eternal life, keys of the Kingdom, etc.

Also, by exercising faith in God, you receive power from Him. This promise is ﬁrmly established in God’s unfailing word. In John 14:12, Jesus gave every believer this assurance: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
Similarly, Colossians 1:23 enjoins believers to “continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven…” God’s promise of power never fails! The blessings of faith to those who exercise it genuinely cannot be overemphasised. God has promised to give spiritual rest (Hebrews 4:3) to those who demonstrate genuine faith in Him.
The Israelites left Egypt by God’s dramatic deliverance, but many of them perished in the wilderness because of lack of faith. Only those who had faith entered into God’s rest. He also promised them spiritual foundation (1 Peter 2:6) and spiritual assurance (1 John 5:14). I encourage you to make faith your steady companion this year. Faith is a game changer.
You need it for a turnaround experience in all areas of your life. You need it for personal, corporate and national revival. You need it to make heaven and reign with Christ. In all your getting this year, get mountain-moving faith!
Acts 3:16 – “And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.”
Motivational Quote: If you can believe, all things are possible to them that believe.
Prophetic Word: I decree and declare that the faith that produces exploits is yours henceforth, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
1. ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His word,
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know “Thus saith the Lord.”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!
2. O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood,
Just in simple faith plunge me
‘Neath the healing, cleansing ﬂood!
3. I’m so glad I learned to trust Him,
Precious Jesus, Saviour, Friend;
And I know that He is with me,
Will be with me to the end.
1. By faith, I access my spiritual inheritance in Christ, in the name of Jesus.
2. Father, help me to continue in faith and not look back, in the name of Jesus.
3. God, help me to be grounded and settled and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, in the name of Jesus.
4. I will make faith my companion for life, in the name of Jesus.
5. O God, arise and turn my night to day, in the name of Jesus.
6. My Father, let faith produce revival and new glory in my life, in the name of Jesus.
