“…For our life is a matter of faith, not of sight…” 2 Co 5:7 (GNT)

Having established the importance of exercising your faith in the first part of the article, I want you to understand that this is a very crucial step you must take if you are going to see the promises of God come to pass in your life. Most times, the devil and his cohorts will stop at nothing to make sure the promises of God manifest in your life. So, they will stir up ugly circumstances that will keep the promises of God from manifesting in your life.

Now, when such situations arise, that is where faith comes into play. This is where you must stand your ground in faith and insist on the manifestation of the promises of God in your life. Unfortunately, this is where many of God’s people get discouraged and are unable to exercise their faith. In most cases, some people even give up on God and His word. They stop praying or attending church services. They come to the conclusion that this whole God thing does not work, unknown to them that they are the ones who have refused to put the word of God to work. 

But if your case is going to be different, then you must make a conscious decision to exercise your faith and be stubborn about it. You must make a conscious decision to be like Papa Abraham, whom the Bible says, against hope, he believed in hope (Romans 4:18). As a matter of fact, the Bible spoke about Abraham saying, “…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…” Romans 4:19‭-‬21 (NKJV). Did you see that? So, do all you can to exercise your faith at all times over everything. When you live like this, you frustrate the wiles of the devil.


Every time you exercise your faith, you frustrate the activities of the devil towards you! 


Father, I am grateful for giving me more insight on the importance of exercising my faith. I decree that the grace to exercise my faith lavishly is at work in me, and as I exercise my faith daily, I am walking in victory in every area of my life in the name of Jesus. Amen!
