Faith is a seed that comes from within. If you trace the history of the Israelites from their rescue from slavery in Egypt to their journey to the promised land and the generations that followed, you will see that faith does not come from things on the outside. As God’s chosen people, they witnessed and experienced more miracles, signs and wonders than any generation before or since and yet their hearts still turned away from God.


To be occupied with what we see or feel directly reverses the condition that God has laid down for us to follow – to walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)


To walk by faith is a heart decision because faith is a heart that believes God in every circumstance of life. Faith is related to two realities we cannot see with our natural eyes – God and God’s Word. Yes, you find faith deep within your spirit – faith to believe, faith to trust, faith to rely only on God and His Word. This deep inner conviction is the seed of any real believer. And no matter what happens on the outside, the seed remains.


The Bible tell us in 1 John 3:9, “No one who has been born of God practices sin, because His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin continually, because he has been born of God.”

A Christian does not make sin his trademark, his lifestyle. A Christian does not live and walk in it for His seed remains in him, that is faith born of God.  


Ask Jesus to water the seed of faith within you as you remain in His Word, in Jesus’ name.


“It took God one night to deliver the Israelites physically from 400 years of captivity but it took 40 years to deliver their hearts from captivity. For some, they never let go. You may have stopped your bad habits on the outside but is your heart still yearning for them? If you have decided to follow Jesus and you mean it, don’t look back! Look to God alone. You cannot discover new oceans if you do not lose sight of the shore.”


“There is nothing God created that He cannot command, control or instruct, and can turn people’s hearts to favour you. Solomon was made wealthy by God as God brought people from all over to bless him. God can use anything to speak to you, to preserve you and protect you for His purpose. So, never doubt that God can move mountains to bring to pass His purpose in your life. He is able to do more than you could ask or imagine because He is a living God and His resources are infinite.”


“As a child of your Heavenly Father, there is a promise for you in Isaiah 43:1 that you have been redeemed by God, that He called you by name and you are His. What does it mean to belong to God? Once Christ purchases us with His Blood, we become aliens here on earth and there is a barrier between us and everything here in this world.”
