The Moment of Faith by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

The Moment of Faith by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

For it is God which worketh in you both
to will and to do of his good pleasure
(Philippians 2:13).

In Jude 1:20, we read something striking; it says,
“But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on
your most holy faith, praying in the Holy
Ghost.” The word, “building” as used by the Apostle
Jude doesn’t mean building something afresh or from
scratch; it’s the Greek word, “epoikodomeo.” It means
to build on, or build upon; building on an already
existing foundation.

 Now, the Bible lets us know that God has dealt
to every man the measure of faith (Romans 12:3); the
faith given to you by God is the foundation you need
to build upon for a life of success, prosperity, victory,
divine health and glory as God wants.

Oftentimes, as you hear God’s Word, faith
comes to you strong, and you’re inspired to take certain
actions. That’s your moment of faith; that’s the time you
must act. If you delay, that faith could wane or dissipate,
because it came in the Word that you heard at that
time. What you do when faith comes to you like that is
to take action, and then keep feeding your faith to keep
it virile.

Our theme verse says God is the one that works
in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
All that time you were inspired and thought to do
something for the Lord or take an action for the Gospel,
it was God working His purpose in you. Once you’ve
taken the steps, don’t let your faith down; build on it,
because there’s more to do; keep the faith on. This is where some miss it; they don’t realize that they have
to build their faith continually; so, they find themselves
vacillating, staggering at the Word of God through
unbelief.

When you hear God’s Word and faith comes to
you, act immediately; hold on to the vision, and let
nothing stop you. Maybe it’s a teaching about giving,
and your faith is stirred up to give, go ahead and do
so immediately; seize that hour of faith and act on the
Word.

Never let the zeal of your faith wane. Keep your
faith afire; build and nourish it with the Word of God.
Don’t allow space for negative thoughts that’ll breed
doubts, and delay your blessing for acting on the Word.

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you, for you take pleasure in my
prosperity. Thank you for your blessings that I receive
and enjoy today, and for showing me the key to a
victorious faith-walk, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
