Apostle George Amandi
SCRIPTURE: And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. Luke 1:45
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To believe in God is to be blessed.
Yesterday, “we saw how the Word of God imparts faith, and how faith connects us with the blessing of God.
Now, the question is, how does faith bring about the blessing? We are going to consider two things that communicate how faith blesses”:
1. God rewards faith or belief in Him with the blessing (Luke 1:45).
The way a child would do something well and the father or mother rewards him/her for the work well done is the same manner God rewards us for having faith in Him. There is a reward for those who believe in God and it is called the blessing.
That was what happened in Luke 1:45 when the Angel told Mary,”blessed is she that believed…. From that Scripture, God seemed to say, ‘for not doubting my Word, character and integrity, I bless you, and I favour you.’
So, to believe in God is to be blessed.
2. Faith is the hand we use to receive our inheritances (blessings) from God (Hebrews 6″:12).
God’s rewards are received by the hand of faith. If God has promised you healing,”deliverance, lifts in life, etc. it is by the hand of faith that you can receive it from God (Hebrews 6″:12).
So,”a major tool you use to take your inheritance in God or whatever is yours is faith. And I see your inheritance delivered to you as you put your faith to work, in Jesus’ Name.
1. Put your faith to work. Operate with the mentality that nothing is impossible.
2. Make demands on your inheritance in God.
PRAYER: Lord,”I believe Your Word and Your promises to me. I receive all You have for me Lord, in Jesus” Name
