Faith in God is all you need to live a victorious life. The bible describes faith as “the victory that overcomes the world”. This also means that no matter what is happening in the world, faith will always win. However, both faith and victory are in degrees. It is the level of your faith that will determine the level of victory you would be able to attain.
A certain man had a lunatic child who had been diagnosed with several treatments, but all to no avail. The child was even taken to the disciples of Jesus for deliverance, but it seemed the matter grew worse. The bible records that, sometimes the child will jump into fire, and some other times into water. But when they brought the child to Jesus, he was delivered instantly. When the disciples enquired to know why they could not deliver the child, Jesus told them that their faith was inadequate, and that the kind of faith that will cast out such a demon will require fasting. Do not get me wrong; fasting is not the victory, faith is. But do not expect to drive a trailer with the engine of a car, just as you should not expect to build a house with the same level of faith you used to rent a house. Faith may be the victory, but what generates its power are knowledge, prayer, and fasting.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; FASTING IS A PERIOD OF TIME WE INTENTIONALLY SET ASIDE FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEVELOPING OUR FAITH. WHEN IT COMES TO GROWING YOUR FAITH, FASTING IS NOT AN OPTION. IT’S THEREFORE NOT ENOUGH TO BE IN A FAST, MAKE SURE YOUR FAITH IS GROWING. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
