And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions – Hebrews 11:32-33
The Lord Jesus said if you have faith, as a grain of mustard seed, nothing shall be impossible to you (Matthew 17:20). Your faith is your currency to rule your world.
The Bible tells us of certain men and women who through faith dominated the world of their time (Hebrews 11:32-33). The eleventh chapter of the book of Hebrews gives us an insightful chronicle of the extraordinary accomplishments of some of these great men and women of faith: how they subdued kingdoms, and functioned in righteousness, standing their grounds in their convictions. Their faith serves as an example for us today. Their deeds were written for our inspiration and edification; letting us know we can do the same.
Let’s reflect on the attitude of one of these great heroes of faith—Joshua. By faith, he led the children of Israel to march round the intimidating walls of Jericho seven times, with the menacing walls coming down flat on the seventh count, as they gave the victory shout (read Joshua 6:16-20). You can live every day in victory and dominion through faith. The Bible admonishes us to be “…followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises” (Hebrews 6:12). Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, the prophets of old, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Apostles have all set examples of faith for us to emulate.
You can face and overcome whatever obstacle is before you by speaking forth words of faith. You can effect changes and do great things in your world today. You too can manifest righteousness and give life to the dead or hopeless situations. You can revive your business if it’s been grounded, or keep it growing from glory to glory. You can excel greatly in ministry, in your academics, career or profession and be a wonder to your world. Your faith is the currency; rule your world with it.

Confession (Faith’s Proclamation)
The Word of faith is in my heart and my mouth, and it prevails as I speak it forth. My life is the testimony of God’s grace and a harvest of blessings because I walk by faith in His Word. I’m more than a conqueror, and my faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Halleluiah!
