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 Sarah’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
True Christianity is a supernatural life of faith in God’s Word (Romans 1:17; 2 Corinthians 5:7; Hebrews 10:38). When you’re operating by the principle of faith, you’ll always be giving glory to God. You’ll always be thankful and grateful to Him, not for what you expect Him to do, but for all He’s already done because you’ve come to understand that there’s absolutely nothing that He hasn’t done for you yet. This understanding makes your life that of praise and thanksgiving; you glorify God every day, everywhere and at all times. Like the Prophet Habakkuk said, “Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.” (Habakkuk 3:17-18)
In your life, you must learn how to look out only for that which gives God glory. So, instead of looking for your sickness (finding out what’s wrong with you); look for your healing. Some people are quick to rush to the doctor at the slightest pain or discomfort in their body. Suck folks are looking out for their sickness instead of their healing. That’s not faith, and that doesn’t glorify God. He has called us (believers) to heal, not to seek for help from doctors (Mark 16:17-18).
If, for example, there’s a swelling somewhere in your body; don’t talk about how persistent the growth is and complain about the pain. Instead, choose to see that it’s reducing and the pain gone. Then, begin to give glory to God for your healing. Remember what Paul said, “For TO BE CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH; but TO BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED IS LIFE and peace. Because THE CARNAL MIND IS ENMITY AGAINST GOD: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” (Romans 8:6-11)
For you to move from one level of glory to a higher level, you have to speak according to God’s Word, you have to talk yourself to that place where you want to be, if they’ve refused to promote you in your place of work; don’t be sad. Promotion doesn’t come from the east, west or from the south; it comes from God (Psalm 75:6). Therefore talk yourself to the top. Use your mouth. Keep declaring your promotion, health…your miracle is in your mouth. Don’t stagger at the Word of God through unbelief. Remember the Word of the Lord Jesus, “For verily I say unto you, That WHOSOEVER SHALL SAY unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and SHALL NOT DOUBT IN HIS HEART, but shall BELIEVE THAT THOSE THINGS which HE SAITH SHALL COME TO PASS; he shall HAVE WHATSOEVER HE SAITH.” (Mark 11:23). Notice what He said, ‘whosoever’; this includes non believers because no one was born again when He made this statement. So if non believers can have what they say (good or bad, of course), what about you? Dare to believe and confess God’s Word, Jesus never lied.
