Our Life is by Faith

 

Our five physical senses are not created by God to rule us in the affairs of this life. He has called us to a higher calling that is completely separate from this world’s way of doing things. The things that are seen are subject to change, and that is what makes them temporal. In Heb 11:6 it says what pleases God is faith, because the very foundation of our new nature is by faith. The foundation is laid by faith and continues from there through faith.

 

Ephesians 2:8

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

 

We have received the gift of God that brings total deliverance by faith. We are made the righteousness of God by faith, so it should go without saying that the righteous should live their lives through faith. Our Life is by faith. God is not pleased if we shrink back from living through the faith we received.

 

Hebrews 10:38 AMP

38 But the just shall live by faith [My righteous servant shall live by his conviction respecting man's relationship to God and divine things, and holy fervor born of faith and conjoined with it]; and if he draws back and shrinks in fear, My soul has no delight or pleasure in him.

 

We are overcomers because of our faith in the greater one on the inside of us. The greater we magnify Him in our sight the more it energizes our faith to overcome. This is the fight we are called to.

 

1 Timothy 6:12

12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

 

Our fight of faith is in exalting as the greatest reality the eternal life we have received, “Lay hold of the eternal life we have received.” See your eternal life, exalt it as your life that sustains you, because it actually does.

We will continue tomorrow

Have wonderful day! 😊
