My Dearest Sisters,
Happy New week! This week, something phenomenal shall happen to you in Jesus Name. Amen.
I like to start my year charged and equipped by reading the Word and other relevant materials. Ofcourse, this is an all year exercise however I take particular care to do this at the beginning of the year because it puts the year in perspective.
Why is reading the Word so important? it builds your faith. There's no faith outside the Word of God. To please God and reach our destinies, we need faith. That is why any and every atrack we face is an attempt to attack our faith. Once the faith is attacked, destiny is attacked and so is our walk with God.
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."- Romans 10:17 KJV
You cannot 'overhear' the Word, it is a continuous thing. The process of faith is like that of a seed. A seed doesn't bring forth fruits the day it is planted, it requires continous watering and pruning for the fruits to come alive. The same applies to faith!
In most cases, faith does not manifest immediately you hear the word. However, the seed has been sown and we must continue 'hearing' for it to have expression.
As we have embarked on the year 2019, I admonish you to take the shield of faith and keep hearing the Word. Read books, listen to messages, study the word and meditate on them...don't be discouraged, if you haven't seen any change yet...your faith is rising. And remember faith does not answer to Time, Time answers to faith. Stay in faith!
Loads of Love,
