November 6, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – THE TRIGGER OF FAITH – Mark 11:22-25
If you want to be productive in faith, you must know Mark 11:22-25. You should read and study it. Any device that releases and operates with power – a car, a generator, a gun, an explosive device like a grenade – has a trigger. Mark 11:23 is the trigger for the force of faith. You have seen some people put a rope on an explosive device and light the rope. When the burning rope hits the explosive device, the explosion takes place. You can have the greatest faith in the world but if you don’t understand Mark 11:23, it is not going to work.
Mark 11:22-25 outlined the principles that you can apply in any situation requiring faith in God to produce a divine result, whether it is prayers, casting out demons, or obtaining promises. In every case of exploit of faith in the Bible mentioned in Hebrews 11, Mark 11:23 was what they used. Even David, when he was confronting Goliath, it was the same principles he used. So as a child of God, you must understand this passage and study it.
I have done many teachings on faith over the years and I have also lived by faith. When I started out in ministry, God specifically instructed me to master these two subjects: how to be led by the Holy Spirit and how to live by faith. Many subjects are important to living a balanced Christian life but these two are the core modules that determine the effectiveness of everything else. If you find Christians that are struggling in any area of life, they are missing either of these two. If you can master those two subjects, you will go far in life. Master them and the devil will not be able to defeat you.
PRAYER: Lord, I pray for enhanced sensitivity to the Holy Spirit and an ever-increasing faith life. My faith will not fail in Jesus name. Amen!
