Unveiling The Mystery Of Faith – Seeds Of Destiny Devotional, 22 June 2021 By Pastor Paul Enenche
SCRIPTURE: Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. 1 Timothy 3:9
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The quality of a Word is determined by the quality of the speaker.
The Bible identifies faith as a mystery. That is, something that could be difficult to understand. But it is a very important mystery that must not be allowed to remain a mystery because our lives, both in quality and durability depends on our faith (Habakkuk 2:4, Galatians 3:11).
The question then is: what is faith? Let us begin to unravel the mystery of faith.
Faith is judging Him faithful who has promised (Hebrews 11:11).
Other people may accuse or suspect God, but people of faith judge Him faithful.
Every word is as good as the one who spoke it. The quality of a word is determined by the quality of the speaker.
It was said that in a meeting some time ago, the speaker admonished the men to love their wives. Then, he asked them, “When last did you tell your wife ‘I love you?’”.
Many men couldn’t respond. He said, “Okay, send a text message to your wife now from this meeting and tell her, ‘I love you’”.
They did. And when their wives got the text message, there were different responses and reactions from the wives. For example, one of the women upon receiving her husband’s message said, “Kai! This man is drunk again. When will you stop this drinking?” This was because such statement coming from her husband was strange to her. It could only come out of drunkenness.
Another woman said, “Ah! Do you want me to lend you money again?” Serious matter!
The meaning of that is, don’t mind the word if the speaker is not someone to mind. But you must mind the word if the speaker is someone to mind.
So, if the Almighty God who cannot lie said, No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper… (Isaiah 54:17). That Word is good because the speaker is good. It is quality, durable and reliable because the Person who spoke it is quality, durable and reliable.
Remember this: The quality of a word is determined by the quality of the speaker.
1. Study the Word daily and believe whatever the Word says no matter what is happening around you.
2. Think about how God intervened for you or for someone else, in situations that looked hopeless and let it boost your faith in Him.
3. Note this: God is always faithful.
PRAYER: Lord, reveal Yourself to me. Let the knowledge of You impart me with strong faith and confidence in You Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: What you believe is a vehicle to where you arrive. Culled from “22 LAWS OF LIFE” (VOL. 1) by Dr Paul Enenche.
REFLECTION: Are you 100% confident that God is reliable, dependable and trustworthy? Or do you suspect God? Do you think He is partial or is not fair to you? That is an agenda of the enemy to destroy your faith. Whatever happens, God is faithful.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: I decree that you shall experience the faithfulness of God in your life in this season in Jesus’ Name.
