“…the just shall live by faith…” Hebrews 10:38 (NKJV)

Many years ago, things became so difficult to the point where I asked my friend “must one operate in faith for everything?” And he said “yes”. I couldn’t wrap my mind around it because I was going through a lot then. But you see, as I continued to press on in faith, God gave me victory.

Today, many believers are still asking that same question, often because of the pressure that their situation is mounting on them. Well, in case you are in that category, or maybe the question has crossed your mind at one time or another, I have an answer for you. You do not only need faith to overcome that situation, you also need faith to live every day because according to the Bible, you’ve been designed as a believer to live by faith. The Bible says “…now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him…” Hebrews 10:38 (NKJV). Did you see that? 

This tells us that as believers, we ought to live by faith and not by sight. It is not optional but compulsory and the moment you begin to operate in faith, you can secure victory in all areas of life. 

Sadly, many of God’s people want victories upon victories, but they are not willing to operate in faith. Beloved, if you are not willing to operate in faith, then you are not willing to do business with God. You must understand that God is Spirit, and to relate with Him or receive anything from Him, faith is required.

Therefore, I encourage you today to take your faith walk seriously, knowing full well that faith is the victory that overcomes the world (1 John 5:4) and anyone who operates in faith, ultimately overcomes the world and pleases the Father as well. Hallelujah!


To secure victory in all realms of life, you must choose to operate in faith!


Father, I am grateful for this wonderful exposition, I choose today to operate in faith, and as I do this, I declare that I am excelling and making progress in all areas of my life in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
