THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Avoid the way of murmuring; it is a faithicide
The praise of faith is a kind of praise that does not wait for God’s promises to come to pass before praising Him. It praises God even at the promise stage.
It is doubt or unbelief that waits to see results before praising. Men and women who have faith in God will praise the goodness of His Word before the manifestation.
If God had said, “let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant” (Psalms 35:27), you should not wait for them to happen before you praise God.
A cheque is as good as cash depending on who signed it. If God is the One who signed it, it cannot bounce.
When God sees that you are praising His promised Word, not the action yet, then He is moved into action to produce the desired results.
Beloved, my counsel to you is: Ensure that you celebrate God’s Word concerning your life. Also notice the goodness of God in your life at every point no matter how slight it may be. Avoid the way of murmuring; it is a faithicide. A faithicide is like an insecticide; insecticides kill insects and faithicides kill faith.
Remember this: Avoid the way of murmuring; it is a faithicide.
1. Praise God’s Word concerning your life.
2. Avoid murmuring.
3. Be conscious of the fact that if God has said it, He will do it.
PRAYER: LORD, I thank You for Your promises to me. I believe that You will bring them to pass in my life. Thank You LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
