How to Understand the Partnership Between God's Word and Your Faith
By Drake Mariani, Founder, MemLok Bible Memory System
How to Activate the Promises of God In My Life Is a Question Many Christians Ask. Have You Received Your Answer?
In the book of Numbers, Chapter 13, God told Israel that they will overcome.
“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel…” Numbers 13: 1-2
In simple words, God said to them:
I want you to go into the land because you will overcome. You’ll even meet giants there, but don’t worry about it because I will go before you like a consuming fire. And I will drive them out before you.
What an incredible promise!
Straight from God Almighty.
But what happened?
As the spies went into the land to see whether or not it was good, they didn't come back with a good report.
Even when God said that they will conquer, they still had the pictures of those giants imprinted on their hearts. They lost the battle because they didn't believe God's word. Even when God partnered with Israel for victory they didn’t have faith in His promise.
“For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it." Hebrew 4:2
Israel didn't let God's word touch their hearts. Because all they saw was the challenge; the huge mountain of defeating the giants in front of them.
As they considered themselves tiny like grasshoppers, they lost the next battle.
Many of Us Look At Our Problems In Life As If They Are Giants
When problems in life hit us, it becomes challenging to fix our eyes on the promises of God. Even reading verse after verse doesn’t give us the result we need.
But have you ever thought how can you turn this around and achieve victory instead of losing the battle like Israel did?
If you’re asking: how can I activate the power of God in my life then it’s essential to understand that we need to have faith in God. It’s a prerequisite to seeing God’s miracle power in your life.
You need to stop looking at the giants and begin looking at God. Changing your focus can make all the difference.
Remember, mere reading of scriptures on activating your faith can’t help if your entire focus remains on the all sorts of big problems (giants) in front of you.
Instead, if you truly want to learn how to activate the promises of God in your life then you need to have faith in God like the centurion. He believed his servant will be healed when Jesus will say the word of healing without visiting him in person.
“And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.” Matthew 8: 13
That’s the kind of faith Jesus wants from us so He can easily partner with us to perform miracles.
The Word of God will dwell in us when we make a commitment to build our faith by hearing the scriptures daily.
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans.” 10: 17
