SCRIPTURE: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Hebrews 11:1-2.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Exploits in life are the product of faith; the higher your faith in God, the greater your exploits in the Kingdom.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that faith is key to evidential proofs in the life of a child of God. By faith, the elders obtained good reports. This means, exploits in life are products of faith; the higher your faith in God, the greater your exploits in the Kingdom.
In our Study today, I will highlight few exploits of some people of faith:
Oral Roberts built Oral Roberts University at Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is a skyscraper with one hundred and ten floors.
Sometime ago, I stood on that ground and imagined what God can do through a person of faith. I saw what God did with one man who was not a president of a country or in any position in government.
Kenneth E. A. Hagin distributed 325,000 magazines monthly free of charge for many years. Kenneth Copeland has been married to his wife now for almost 60 years. And he has given out 27 aeroplanes as gifts to people.
God has also used Bishop David Oyedepo to do great exploits in life and ministry by the engagement of faith. And by association and connection, we are privileged to be identified with what God is doing in this Ministry.
From the beginning of this Church, I had never been on salary by the Church but God has placed me on salary every month. And if I ask the Church to pay me what God pays me as monthly salary, it would be a challenge. The good news is, the bulk of what God gives to me monthly goes back to His work.
When God sees how the money He gives to me is being pumped back into His work, He releases more.
Beloved, make up your mind to develop your faith so you can be a candidate for exploits on earth.
REMEMBER THIS: Exploits in life are products of faith; the higher your faith in God, the greater your exploits in the Kingdom.
1. Study men of faith in Scriptures and draw lessons from their lives.
2. Make up your mind to do exploits in your lifetime by the engagement of faith.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me Your Word. I ask for the spirit of faith and exploit to rest upon me, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
