By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice… By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promise offered up his only begotten son. HEBREWS 11:4,17
Still on the matter of faith here are some things you should know in regards to what boost faith.
As we get closer to the coming of the Lord, there is going to be very great battle for the maintenance of faith. Luke 18:8b ‘…Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?’ We need to know what to do in order to empower our faith. A person of faith offers sacrifice.if you check through scriptures people of faith offered sacrifice unto God in one form or the other, even the act of serving God ‘efficiently’ on its own is sacrifice. Note the following things concerning sacrifice.
Firstly, sacrifice is an avenue for both the expression and amplification of faith. When you release what you can, you can expect God to do His part.
Secondly, sacrifice is an act of faith that increases confidence in God’s response. Faith involves the taking of steps that commit God to act.
Thirdly, the move of God is triggered by the move of man. When a man moves by sacrifice, God is committed to move. The Bible in Luke 6:38 says, ‘Give and it shall be given to you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over shall men give to your bosom…’ and in Genesis 8:2, ‘While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, … day and night shall not cease’
If you are not holding back your sacrifice or any form of giving, God will not hold back your harvest. I believe that since I am not holding back my giving, God will not hold back my blessings and harvest. when you give (in time, resources, energy, effort, love and so on unto God, whom you can also find in fellow human beings) with commitment, excitedly and massively, you don’t need to pray in order to make God to release your harvest and blessings because God is not unfaithful.
When God asked Moses to stretch his rod, that was the only thing Moses needed to do; he did not need to beg God to send the wind to part the Red Sea. The principle of sacrifice is ‘Do what you can do and God will do what you cannot do.’ God is about to visit you and cause your blessings and harvest to be released in response to your sacrifice, in Jesus’ Name.
