He Is The Spirit Of Faith

The Spirit Of The Lord

 

15. He is the Spirit of faith

And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,“ we also believe and therefore speak, (2 Corinthians 4:13 NKJV)

The Holy Spirit is the spirit that produces faith. Any one who is trying to produce faith by his own power lacks humility and wisdom. Faith is spiritual and the author, source and giver of faith is the Holy Spirit. It is only when the word of God dwells in the hearts of men without expulsion that a men have faith. It is only by the Holy Spirits power that we can retain and not expel the word of God.

But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” Matthew 13:23

Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop–a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Mathew 13:8

The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. Matthew 13:37

If we study the parable of the sower, we will observe that it is the son of man than plants the word of God in the hearts of men represented as different qualities of soil. The son of man plants the word of God by His Holy Spirit that is here on earth. It is also the son of man that breaks the soil and makes the soil a good soil, capable of accepting the good news and the commandments of God.

He prunes and purifies us by His Holy Spirit in order to enable full indwelling of the word. That is only when the fruits including faith are produced a hundred fold.

The Holy Spirit is all we need and He alone can produce mature faith and purity in us. The kind of faith that relies and depends on God not on self or our own faith. He alone is the author and giver of faith. Glory to God!

Give Me My Food

Let my mouth be filled with Your praise

And with Your glory all the day. (Psalm 71:8 NKJV)

This is such a wonderful Scripture from the mouth of God. Many years ago, God impressed this Scripture in my mind and I fell in love with it. I thought within me, “how wonderful it would be if my mouth could exalt and glorify God all day.” Of course I could not praise God twenty four hours a day. However, I developed an attitude of praise, worship and thanksgiving.

I made up my mind to consciously chase after Christ by worshipping God always. Christ is the face of God so by chasing after Christ, I was constantly seeking the face of God.

Whenever I fall short in worship, praise and thanksgiving, the Holy Spirit would say to me, ‘ give me my food.’ His food is His desire and pleasure. He loves worship and praise. He also loves purity and Holiness.

Sometimes my eyes would be closed and He would just write it out for me, ‘thanksgiving.’ At other times, He would also write, ‘praise.’

He would say to me, ‘tell me how much you love me and why you love me.’ We must remember that heaven is a place of praise and worship. God simply loves praise and worship because when we exalt Him, our focus goes to Him instead of our problems, circumstances and difficulties.

Most especially, we need to focus on the fact that Jesus died for us and His blood set us free. We need to rejoice in and celebrate God’s great deliverance on the cross and His power. That is what the devil hates.

The devil knows that God loves and desires constant worship so he provides distractions to discourage us. The Bible tells us to thank God in all circumstances and to rejoice in the Lord always. God really loves worship.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

I pray that our mouths will be filled with His praise and glory all day. May we constantly praise and glorify Him.

The Great One

Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”

 

We bless Him,

We praise Him,

Because

He is greater than

All our problems.

 

 

Our great and mighty God

Is sovereign;

Ruling over all creation.

All things must praise Him,

Because

All Things serve Him

And His purpose.

 

Because of who He is,

What He has done

On the cross,

And what He can do,

We must constantly

Praise Him.

 

May all creation

Praise Him.

And may we always

Praise Him.

He Defeated Death

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31 NKJV)

Who can be against us
When the Creator
Of all is with us
We will not fear
Man or demons
Death, hell and the grave

Death could not hold Him down
He is Lord above death
He holds captivity captive
He has the keys of death and life
He defeated death hell and the grave
He fought with death
And won
He won for us
All power belongs to Jesus
All authority in heaven and earth
Has been given to Him
He is supreme
He is highly exalted
Over all things
Praise God!
Jesus won the victory
Over death and punishment
Praise God!

I will exalt His mercy

Jesus,

Author and finisher

Of our faith

In great mercy

You carried our sorrows

Forever

Playing In The Moonlight

 

 

Little girls dancing, clapping and playing in the moonlight

The wriggles and squeaks

Under a huge mango tree

The quiet village is filled with innocent cries of laughter

I gaze up into the sky and my eyes are fixed on a star in wonder of creation

 

 

 

My heart mutters

“How glorious are you, O King of glory.

You are pure and desire innocence

Cleanse our hearts and make us as innocent as doves

So that we can find joy in the little things of life

And gush out happy cries of joy

Just like the girls playing in the moonlight.”
