GOD'S PILL: CAPSULE 7
WORK THAT FAITH
And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not (Luke 17:5-9 KJV).
When it comes to healing , one of the commonest reason given for being unable to effect healing is that the faith of the individual involved is 'too little' This story shows otherwise, it is not how big your faith is, (Mustard seed is one of the smallest seeds available, almost microscopic) it is how operative.
For faith to be operative and active it has to be put to constant use as revealed in the above illustration by Jesus Christ. Faith has got to be worked like a servant constantly to maintain the flow, so that when we need it to minister healing the habit is already formed. You cannot afford to give your faith a holiday , no not for one minute if you can help it. No wonder the bible says
(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV) and
Now the just shall live by faith:.........(Hebrews 10:38a KJV)
So keep walking, keep living, but do it by faith, soon it will become a habit and you will be able to say to the disease or sickness..away! And it will obey you.
Conclusion: WORK THAT FAITH, KEEP WORKING IT LIKE A SERVANT!!!
Making things better, Making better things !
