I wasn’t sure if i was going to have a devotional today or not but after seeing a clip on youtube I think I will.
Why did I entitle it “The Faith Movement- Gospel of Truth”. Faith is a movement. When you walk in the Spirit, you walk by Faith. Faith is an Action. It says in the Word of God that the Just shall live by Faith(Habakkuk 2:4; Romans 1:17;Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:38) and that we ought to walk by Faith and NOT by Sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). Faith is indeed a movement that is taken when we operate in the reverential Fear of the Lord. Faith has the power to save an entire household whereas unbelief has the power to destroy a nation. Unbelief is NOT a movement; it is a decision to remain in ignorance.
When you look at Noah, He built the Ark in the Fear of the Lord and his entire household was saved…but for those that ridiculed him and laughed at him, they were destroyed in the flood as a consequence of their UNBELIEF.
By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
In the same way Moses operated in the reverential Fear of the Lord and saved a Nation out of the bondage of Egyptian slavery. For those that grumbled after-the-fact while walking towards God’s promised land, when it came time to enter into the land, the generation that grumbled during the 40-year journey were killed off because of UNBELIEF. Faith takes you to the destination hence Destinies are tied to FAITH. Unbelief aborts DESTINY and DESTINATIONS.
Faith preserves, Faith heals, Faith restores, Faith Builds, but Unbelief does the opposite since all it does is destroy everything in its path. In knowing this, it is important that we learn to leave no room for doubt to creep into our lives (especially our minds) knowing that the end result is utter devastation.
Faith is a Movement. Unbelief halts and aborts this Movement.
Unbelief is a decision to remain ignorant and promotes stagnancy which keeps people bound up in the first place.
Notice that in Hebrews 11:7 it also mentions that because Noah was moved with godly fear to operate by faith, he saved his entire household and became and Heir of righteousness which is based by his level of FAITH. To be an heir of righteousness you must always oprate by FAITH. This isn’t an option, it’s a mandatory requirement in the Kingdom of GOD because we are joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. Our Faith demands that we are moved by the direction of the Holy Spirit.
Faith requires ACTION and obedience to be moved by the HOLY SPIRIT.
2 Peter 1:21
for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
Unbelief seeks to cap you with lovely friends called Fear, Depression, Hatred, Envy, Self-pity and Pride. We cannot afford to be bound by Unbelief as Children of God.
[ By Faith We Understand ] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
So Today, ask yourself, What moves YOU? Are you driven by Faith or are you capped by unbelief? What you believe in determines whether you are walking in the Spirit or just standing still in the Flesh. Seek God to help you develop your FAITH MOVEMENT and walk with the Gospel of TRUTH as your guide to Faith.
I have here two videos to encourage your FAITH MOVEMENT. May it minister to you today. Have a blessed Day Everybody!
Scriptures to Meditate
“Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”
Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”
2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
