The faith that comes alive in a man is not a “borrowed faith” not ” an inherited faith”. It is the faith that comes out of a personal discovery to which the fellow is unquestionably commited.
your unquetionable commitment to a personal discovery becomes undobted and undenied and therefore becomes predominantly the basis of your actions, decision and your judgement in real life circumstances.
The Apostle Peter was called by Jesus to follow him as a disciple. Peter in his walk with Jesus however discovered who Jesus realy is. He became unquestionably commited to his personal discovery and he was the only apostle who walked on water in response to the call of Jesus to come (Mathew 14 vs 24-29)
Faith is total dependence on God and not making any provision for failure
Faith keeps you afloat of troubles and challenges of life
Faith makes you run towards blessings that are prepared for you (1 Samuel 17 vs 48)
Many have made a ship wreck of their lives because their decisions and choices are influenced by the conviction of another. they have no faith because they have not come to the discovery of the unfailing power of Jesus.
Read the scriptures with your whole heart searching for the word and when you have found it you will know that you have found it and then your faith will come alive.
