Move in Faith
October 4, 2021
Romans 1:17 The Passion Translation
This gospel unveils a continual revelation of God’s righteousness—a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe. And it moves us from receiving life through faith, to the power of living by faith.This is what the Scripture means when it says:“We are right with God through life-giving faith!”
This is just a reminder to move with your faith. You have received faith from God. You have received faith from hearing the Word. Now that you have received, move. Remember that the just walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). So this week walk by faith, run by faith, leap over obstacles by faith. Just move. Live with the power of faith that you have received. Remind yourself that you’ve already won. You are more than a conqueror. You can do all things through Christ that strengthens you. You have the power of life and death in your tongue. You overcome. You are strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
Our moving by faith does not need to look all the same at the same time. You may operate in faith like Abraham and go where the Lord told you to go without knowing all of the details. You may operate in faith like Isaac and take a risk and sow in a famine. You may believe for miracles in the midst of the impossible. Or you may be like Jacob and you may just be holding on to God until you get that blessing He promised. Whatever you do, whoever you model, just go! Operate in the power of faith. Be strong and courageous and access what God has for you. Remember we are praying for His Kingdom to come on earth as it is in Heaven. We can only get that through faith.
Thank You Lord for this faith that You have given me. With it I can please You. With it I can move mountains. With it I can do all things. So move in me Holy Spirit as I use the power of this faith to live today. In Jesus’ Name.
