Now, I will not have you thinking that this thing with faith is reserved for the Christian alone. Please consult “Part 57” of this series for a conversation on that. Having said that, we have found from scripture that it is water that is responsible for things to grow, which is physically rain and spiritually faith. Scripture tells us this; “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. (Romans 12:3 NKJV)” This tells us that faith is not the result of anybody’s own doing, it is a deposit from God in every man, born again or not. Everybody has the “faith potential” given to them by God, as part of their humanity.
That is why the scriptures say God “…gives rain on the earth, And sends waters on the fields. (Job 5:10 NKJV). And again it says God causes His rain to fall on the fields of both the wicked and the just, which means, every man is covered in the faith potential. That’s why there are all sorts of results being achieved by groups and peoples who are not of Christ. And that’s why even you, can sometimes bring about the wrong things in your life when you apply your faith to the wrong thing.
Understand this; God created man to control his physical dwelling from his spirit. It was after the sin at Eden, that God chased man out of the ‘spirit realms’ into the ‘flesh region’, which is what actually we refer to as the fall; the demotion from the realm of spirits to that of mortal biodegradable man.
Also realise that it is not only the word of God that the spirit or heart of man treats as seed. Whatever has a name or can be described, can be a seed in the spirit of man. Once it is believed, it ‘may’ come to pass, hence, the warning; guard your heart…
But here’s the reason for this particular post; man is a very powerful creation, with awesome potentials. Your greatest concern in life, your topmost priority, ranking second to nothing, is what you believe: be careful what you believe, guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life. People will feed you a load of crap, life also will do that. You will hear things and see things, but that’s not what matters, because it’s not what enters a man that defiles him, but what comes out of him. It is the ones you mix with faith that matter. And eventhough man is powerful, yet, God reigns in the affairs of men, only His will shall stand. See you tomorrow.
