Morning with Ebenezer


And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”

Romans 4:19-22 NKJV

Since the day I have started writing this series of faith; I have been facing opposition from the enemy. I find myself even sometimes unable to write. I know that God wants us to walk by faith and not by sight. The enemy knows that if we will know the secret of walking by faith then will be able to unlock all closed doors in our lives.

Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness. His faith to God paid off, and in due time Isaac was born. It was not an easy process trusting God for the impossible given the fact Sarah passed child bearing age. Still Abraham believed God and did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.

We have been talking about faith, we have been giving different examples and we have looked the life of our father of faith Abraham. Still after all of this you may be struggling with the spirit of unbelief. The disciples of Jesus saw all the miracles that Jesus did before their own eyes but they still experienced this state of unbelief. The Scriptures says, “Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. (Matthew 17:19-20)

This morning, I rebuke the spirit of unbelief in you. If you hear the word of God, you see the miracles of Christ but still there is something in you that keep on doubting the works of God; then know you are walking in unbelief. I believe we are living in a generation that has heard and seen things of God than any other generation. God has raised many good teachers, faith healers and miracle doers who preach the Gospel of God in all reverence and humility.

We have Christian Television that shows the things that God is doing among His people throughout the world. People are being born again everyday in every part of this world. In those countries which forbid Christianity still God is revealing Himself in different ways such as through Satellite TVs and Radio broadcasting; and people believe in Jesus. Don't allow the unbelief to cloud your knowledge of the truth in Christ Jesus. Let the Lord be the Lord of everything in this life.  We are going to continue with this Faith Series tomorrow by continue exploring the life of the Father of Faith, Abraham.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, help me to overcome every impurities of unbelief in me by the faith I have in my Lord Jesus Christ. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
