Faith: The Heart’s Response – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional November 16th

(Respond To God’s Word From Your Spirit!)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 4:13 NIV
“It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak”

The importance of your human spirit can’t be overemphasised, because it’s your spirit that makes contact with God.

According to Romans 10:9–10, you believe with your spirit (your heart); that’s why believing is so important. You see, faith is not a response of your mind or brain; it’s the response of your spirit to the Word of God.

In Mark 2:11, we find an example of a response of faith. Jesus said to a man who was lame, “…Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.”

The man acted on the Word immediately and got a miracle. But he was lame; how could he have gotten up? Understand this: It was the man’s body, not his spirit, that was crippled.

So, the only way he could have gotten up was if he responded with his spirit. Thank God he didn’t argue but acted from his spirit on the Master’s instruction, and we can be inspired by his testimony today.

Some people struggle with faith, trying to receive something from God. What they don’t realise is that they’re working from the outside, and that just won’t cut it.

What will produce the result is the response from your spirit, not your mind or body. Once you can believe the Word with your heart and voice it out with your mouth, it’ll produce results.

That’s what Jesus meant in Mark 11:23: “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

I look away from everything that distracts and stand on God’s eternal and dependable Word. I declare that I’m a victor and a success in Christ Jesus, irrespective of what I see, hear or feel. I’m who God says I am; I have what He says I have, and I can do what He says I can do. Glory to God!
