Topic: Light From The Scripture – A Faith ‘Grower’
SCRIPTURE: All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. – John 1:3-5
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Anywhere the revelation of the Word of God is available, faith is alive.
Every seed requires the right environment (the right soil, light, moisture, temperature, etc) for growth. For instance, the seed (foetus) in the womb of a woman requires the right environment for growth.
In the same vein, faith requires the right environment for growth because faith is also a seed (Matthew 17:20). One of the required environments for the growth of faith is LIGHT.
Every seed needs light for growth. There is a reason why plants are green. Plants utilise the sunlight in a process called photosynthesis where chlorophyll is combined with light to give rise to carbohydrate and all the other things they synthesize. It is not possible for the grass to be green, fresh and alive if it does not utilise sunlight.
Now, the light of faith is the revelation of the Word of God. Anywhere the revelation of the Word of God is available, faith is alive. If your faith must grow, it must receive constant ‘revelational’ light. As plants cannot do without sunlight, faith cannot do without constant revelation of the Word of God because the Word of God is light (John 1:1-5 and Psalms 84:11).
Beloved, determine to stuff your spirit with the Word of God on a daily and consistent basis for the growth of your faith.
Remember this: Anywhere the revelation of the Word of God is available, faith is alive.
1. Identify the area of your life that needs light.
2. Search for the light in the scriptures
3. Pray it into your life by speaking in tongues.
