FAITH THROUGH LOVE
Daily Prayer Times: 5:30am, 12noon, 6:00pm, 9:00pm“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.” (Galatians 5:6 NKJV)
Faith is based on knowledge, not a mental or intellectual knowledge, but revelation knowledge of God. Your level of faith, trust or confidence in God is directly proportional to your depth of revelation knowledge of God. You cannot trust God beyond or above the truths you know about God. You cannot trust God implicitly if you don’t know Him intimately!
Sadly, many believers and servants of God today who are supposed to be preaching the Good News about Christ and His finished work of redemption to people so that they may know the love of Christ and so put their trust in Him are often maligning and misrepresenting Christ to the people. This is why many people today are very reluctant or unwilling to put their trust in Christ. Faith is not just acknowledging, knowing or recognizing that God is the Almighty and that there is nothing too hard for Him to do, but much more than this, it is knowing that because of His great love for you, God has used His divine power to give you all things that pertain to life and godliness through Christ Jesus. Faith is not merely based on the revelation knowledge of God’s supernatural power, but more importantly on the revelation knowledge of God’s supernatural love. Without a clear and deep spiritual insight, understanding, or revelation knowledge of God’s perfect, unconditional love for you in Christ Jesus, you will always struggle to trust God’s willingness to do all things for you, even though you don’t doubt His ability or power to do all things. It is one thing to know that God has the power to do what you are asking for, but it is another thing to know that God is willing to grant you your requests because He loves you so much and He is well pleased with you in Christ Jesus. Beloved, if you really want your faith to grow and begin to work wonders, you need to begin to grow in the revelation knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and His perfect love for you by devoting more quality time to prayerfully read and study God’s Word and meditate in God’s love and goodness. As you begin to grow in the revelation knowledge of the Lord Jesus and His unconditional love for you, your faith in Him will naturally grow and begin to produce amazing results;
