Faith is Based On The Word by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Faith is Based On The Word by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

But without faith it is impossible to
please him: for he that cometh to God
must believe that he is, and that he is a
rewarder of them that diligently seek
him (Hebrews 11:6).

Faith is giving substance to the unseen. It’s the
evidence of unseen realities. We deal with, or
relate to the unseen through faith, and the
only reason you know they exist is that the Word of
God says so. Therefore, your faith is actually based on
what God has said. Your faith comes alive when God
talks.

For example, the reason we believe that when
we pray God answers isn’t that we think or assume He
does, but because the Word says He does. 1 John 5:14
says, “And this is the confidence that we have in him,
that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth
us.” His Word is the basis and confidence for our faith.
His Word is immutable and irrefutable; it’s called the
infallible Word: perfect, dependable and ever sure.

When He told Abraham, “I have made you the
father of many nations,” it didn’t matter that Abraham
and his wife, Sarah, were already too old to have
children. Sarah’s womb was already
dead—non-functional—and so was Abraham’s body.

Nevertheless, Abraham’s faith was in the
infallibility of God’s Word. The Bible says, “And being
not weak in faith, he (Abraham) considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred
years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He
staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief;
but was strong in faith, giving glory to God” (Romans
4:19-20). Blessed be God!

God’s Word never returns to Him void.
Therefore, keep acting your faith on what He has said,
irrespective of what the senses project. Don’t beg; don’t
cower; don’t give up! Insist on your rights, privileges,
heritage and blessings in Christ, as stated in the Word.
Even now, boldly affirm: “I walk in divine health; I walk
in financial abundance; I’m a success, a victor, and a
king in this life, and all things are mine!”

Hebrews 13:5-6 says, “…He hath said…so that
we may boldly say….” His Word is the basis for our
faith-filled confessions.

CONFESSION
My faith is alive, active and prevailing; circumstances
align with my faith-filled confessions and I rule, reign
and dominate my world by my faith. I’ve taken a hold
of the eternal realities of the Kingdom, walking in the
full blessings of the Gospel of Christ! My life is for the
glory of God, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
