Do you know that faith is not an intense spiritual focus exercise you must do to solve a problem? It is written in Hebrews 10:38 the just shall live by faith; You must also not take it as a tool you use from time to time to tackle challenges. Living by faith means that in all areas of your life (body, soul and spirit), you must think, act, walk, see by faith. To live means to be. Faith is therefore the vital element of the Christian life. It must be for you, Beloved, a way of operating, a lifestyle.
Living by faith is to have total confidence in God, regardless of the circumstances one experiences, and which seem to be in contradiction with His promises; it is also continuing to believe even without the slightest, visible, palpable evidence. That is why Hebrews 11: 1 defines faith as the substance of things hoped for.
Yes, God made you promises, you hope to see a change in your situation. By living by faith, you keep your assurance in spite of life’s circumstances and even if you have not seen anything yet, you demonstrate what you have not yet seen by behaving as if you had already obtained that which you hoped for.
Also, living by faith means that it must control your thoughts, your decisions, your actions. It must intervene in all areas of your life, without exception: at work, in children’s education, at home, in the ministry or service to God, in the management of finances, in relations with your neighbor, etc.
“Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.” says Hebrews 10:38. Yes Beloved, God stops taking pleasure in you when you lack faith. So, as you can see, it is impossible to please Him without faith (Hebrews 11: 6)!
You need perseverance to get what you have been promised (Hebrews 10:36). “For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.” says your God in Hebrews 10:37. Your victory is not far! Persevere and you will see the glory of God. Live by faith! Dwell in faith!
May God bless you Beloved
