August 27 – Faith Benefit Both God and Man

Daily Bible Life

God and his children enjoy the benefits of faith. In other words, faith is important to humans as well as God. How? A person who lacks faith will find it difficult to enjoy the full benefits of God in his or her life. Also, God cannot establish his desired mutual relationship with a faithless person. Indeed, the need for every believer to exercise a steadfast faith in God cannot be overemphasized. Bible describes the meaning of faith and the need for Christians to exercise it. It is written, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith, we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Hebrews 11:1-3).

 

Lesson:

Faith is important to God and humanity! Anyone who desires to enjoy the benefits of God in his or her life must exercise faith in God. The reason for this is simple: Everything revolves around God in faith. God operates in faith and he requires his children to do likewise. For example, God who has the supernatural power to do whatever he likes only acted in faith during the creation. He spoke in faith to bring all things into existence (Besides the humans that he manually created).

 

God called all things into existence. He spoke with confidence and authority, and miracles followed immediately. In Genesis Chapter One, God said, “Let there be light, and there was light.” God also called out every creature into existence, including the land, sea, plants, and animals.

 

God who has confidence in himself to only use faith utterances during the creation also wants his children to exercise their faith in him. That is, someone who claims to believe in God must also believe in his supernatural power and proclaim it. For example, a child of God must be able to say, *“I believe that my God shall supply all my needs according to his riches in glory through Christ Jesus!”* A child of God must also be able to declare, *“I know that my Redeemer lives, he will solve all my problems and earn me victory!”*

 

There is no limit to the benefits that a child of God can receive through his or her faith profession. However, prior to enjoying God’s limitless benefits (through his supernatural power), a person must first confess Jesus Christ as his or her personal Savior and believe in his resurrection power.

 

Confess Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior to receive the benefit of enjoying God’s supernatural power!

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please make me a person of faith. Help me to believe in your power and demonstrate it to my benefit. Help me, as your child, to declare in faith that, “I shall prosper in all my endeavors, I shall be victorious in all situations, and I shall live to testify to your goodness in the land of the living!” Please let my faith turn to testimony so that people can praise you on my behalf. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
