Is your faith effective in establishing the precious promises of these verses as reality in your daily life or those around you? Look at what Paul prayed for Philemon:
And I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective in the acknowledging of every good thing that belongs to us in Christ.
Paul was not just talking about sharing Christ to unbelievers. Paul was talking about the tangible outcome that takes place in a person’s life when they exercise faith and belief for something. Healing when sick, provision when lacking, help when in need, companionship when lonely, love when hateful and angry, peace when stressed and worried. We are supposed to be sharing our faith for healing, provision, help, peace, love, or any answer from God to come to our experience or to the experience of those in our sphere of influence! What an amazing opportunity!
I want to encourage you today with how to make your faith EFFECTIVE so that it will accomplish ALL that God has in store for you and those around you. When we acknowledge that the fullness of God in Christ, dwells within us (Colossians 2:9-10), our faith becomes effective. When we recognize ALL the provision, health, peace, love, help, and every answer of God is right inside of us, our faith becomes effective in delivering those things to the situation when they are required.
I encourage you to see the healing, provision, help, grace, mercy, peace, love, and every answer of God fully inside of you right now before it is ever needed. Acknowledge that those things are actively living inside of you ready to be delivered into any situation. Accept that they are LIMITLESS and that you can give them away in every situation of life. Accept the never ending quantity and quality of those things inside you by faith today! When you acknowledge those things in this way, you are IN faith and IN Christ, and that faith becomes effective to solve ANY issue at hand in your life or for those around you. Rivers of living water flowing out of you!
Lift up a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving for EVERY good thing inside of you that is in Christ, praise His name that those things are now freely yours in the situation!
May you be EFFECTIVE in your faith today!
