But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. HEBREWS 11:6
If you read my last article, ‘Boosters of faith’ i dealt more on sacrifice because it is important and I mentioned the importance of sacrifice and what it entails, in this article i will like to tell you about pillars of faith, they can also be referred to as boosters, but I prefer to call them pillars, because on it can your faith stand firmly.
The first of them is Hope, Hebrews 11:1 says ‘Now faith is the substance of things hoped for…, Romans 8:24 says ‘ For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?’. Without Hope, faith is handicapped. Faith is hopeless without Hope. To be hopeless is to be helpless. Hope set the pace while faith catches it.
Hope is expectation. Where there is no hope there is no faith. Hope is the raw material for faith. life turns at the direction of your expectation. As long as you faith is intact, you are in good shape. In life and ministry, faith is your greatest asset. What you drive is not as important as what drives you, Jesus gave His life and took it back willingly because of Hope in what the Father has said about His anointed one (Hebrews 12:2). Your expectation determine your experience. When you are on the look out for things you will see them.
The second pillar is Expectation, Psalms 16:8-9 says ‘I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.’ Expectation is the mother of manifestation. When you set God before you, your problem will bow before you. you will not be moved. so be on the lookout for what He has said concerning you and your situation.
The Third is Desire, Proverbs 18:1 says ‘Through desire a man, having seperated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.’ Behind every great destiny is a great desire. You cannot acquire anything in life until you desire it. Desire is to be steadfast minded, to be persistent in pursuit. It is the state of the heart for a specific need. The content of the heart determines the impact on the earth. Desire is the Power link between the divine and humanity. psalm 37:4 ‘Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart’. To be continued… God bless you.
