November 10, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – STEPS TO BUILD A FAITH LIFE I: HAVE A PROMISE – Hebrews 11:13, 1 Kings 17:10-15
For the next few days, we will be considering six (6) steps that you can work on to help you build a good faith life. Whether God releases a word or you come across a promise in the Bible, these steps will always work. Never forget, when you work the steps correctly, you will get to your destination!
STEP 1: You must have the promise of God on the matter
You are not in faith if you do not have a promise or a prophecy and either must come from the Bible or the Holy Spirit. It is important at this point to let you know that you cannot have a productive faith life if you do not understand the ministry of the Bible and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. A safe rule to operate in spiritual matters is to seek to know God first from the Bible and not from prayer. In other words, build a strong understanding of the Bible and take that to the Holy Spirit.
So, when standing in faith, ask yourself, ‘do I have a promise or a prophecy?’ Your promise or prophecy can come from the Bible or the Holy Spirit (via various channels). However, it is safer when your promise comes from the Bible; but if you have developed your walk with the Holy Spirit thoroughly enough, you can safely rely on the other channels that He uses to give you a promise or a prophecy to back up your faith process.
PRAYER: Dear Holy Spirit, help me to locate God’s promises and prophecies for me to stand on at every point in my faith journey, in Jesus name. Amen!
