TEXT: ROMANS 1:16-17
(16) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
(17) For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
KEY VERSE: HABAKKUK 2:4
Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
The faith of the just is based on the promises of God. God can look at a contrary situation of your life and throw a promise to you, that if you are not a person of faith, you might miss the promise as clearly seen in Abraham’s case. The just believes in the testimonies of the scripture and that as it happened to those in the scripture, it will likewise happen to him. The just believes in the prophetic word of God. I have heard many testimonies of God’s promises.
I went out one day and noticed a location Pastor and some brethren carrying an insane woman towards my house. When I approached them, they informed me of what was going on. I quickly informed them to carry the woman to the fellowship venue. We took time and prayed for her and the prayer was effective because she who had not eaten requested for a meal.
The brethren were relieved as they too were very much engaged with her display. Hence, when she calmed down, the brethren took out time to refresh themselves. However, the same evening, I was told that she was nowhere to be found. In the morning, I requested for a search to be made around the location and for an extension to other parts nearby.
I went to the scriptures and ask God to speak to me. I received a leading to read the story of the prodigal son but I wondered what I could receive from it.
Nevertheless, I still went on to read it. There is a verse that indicated that the prodigal son has gone far; then I knew that the woman had truly gone far. As I read further, I came to the verse that says “for this my son was dead and is alive again, he was lost and is found. And they began to be merry (Luke 15:11-32).” At this, I knew that the quickened scripture has been given by God. I knew that no matter how far the woman had gone, she would be found. Therefore, hold on to the prophetic word God has given you.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Examples Abound of Just Men That Lived By Faith:
Daniel spent a night with hungry lions in their den.
Joshua made the sun and the moon to stand still.
Abraham and Sarah believed God for a son at a very old age.
Joseph believed God for realization of his dream.
Paul ran the Christian race and finished well by faith.
David overcame Goliath by faith.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Have faith in God.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Forever oh Lord your Word is settled in heaven it is settled.
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Exodus 9-10; Matthew 18:1-20
