And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
The Word of God is the source of faith, and faith is required to manifest The Blessing of the Lord. Faith activates The Blessing like gasoline activates a car engine. If you are born again and filled with God’s Spirit, the Blessing of the Lord is on you. Don’t wait for a feeling or your mind to confirm this. Just receive it by faith, which the Bible defines as “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).
When you start walking by faith, you can’t afford to stop using your faith for one minute. You have to stay with faith until Jesus comes. Hebrews 10:38 says, “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.” Faith connects you with God, and when you are connected with God, nothing is impossible for you to accomplish.
The enemy (satan) tries to keep you from spending time with God and His Word because he is after your faith. He knows that without faith you cannot access God’s promises and reach your destiny. You must continue to hear the Word and build your faith for The Blessing to be activated in your life. For instance, God might tell you that He’s giving you some land or a piece of property, but without faith you will never receive it just like the Israelites who spent forty years in the wilderness because the ten spies (leaders) did not have faith to receive their Promised Land.
Activate your faith like Joshua and Caleb who believed God would bless them with victory!
Father, I believe I receive the good promises You have in Your Word for me and I reject fear, doubt and unbelief. I will not draw back, but I know there is nothing impossible for me because my faith connects me with You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
