Faith Conquers

Key Verse

“Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens” (Hebrews 11:33,34).

TEXT — Hebrews 11:30-40


Air, water and fire are known to be among the world’s most powerful elements. Nothing can stand on the way of their devastating force. They can destroy whatever they come in contact with. Faith, however, has been proved to be far more potent. It is one force that has the ability to control all the elements of nature even though it is not visible to the human eyes.

Chapter 11 of the book of Hebrews is a classic record of powerful exploits of faith. The verses for our meditation today give a quick summary of the inexhaustible account of what ordinary people can accomplish through faith. Christian faith conquers civilisation, makes sinners into sons and daughters of God, produces good fruit, helps Christians face trial with steadfastness, and finally helps them look forward to the future glory of all saints.

If the Old Testament believers whose stories we read about in the Book of Hebrews can have as much victory as they did, then today’s Christians have no reason not to live a conquering and victorious life. We have the power to overcome and be all God wants us to be today. We have what it takes to turn the tide of the world in our favour and can conquer the hardest of sinners for Christ. We can endure whatever trial and come out victorious. We remain formidable and unconquerable no matter what enemy confronts us.

Realising how powerful faith is, our focus as Christians should be on building up this most holy arsenal. Develop your faith through regular and consistent study of the word of God. Put your faith to use at every given opportunity. Do not ever let any situation cast your back to the ground. Stand and face every challenge by faith.

Thought for the day

Nothing can stand the power of faith.

  1. Faith is the antidote to fear: fear has torments. Therefore, Faith Frees the heart to love God with unquenchable love and with unashamed passion to share that love with the lost humanity; Faith Activates the promises of God by Actions of Faith through persevering prayer until something happens; Faith Increases you in Grace moving from one level of grace to another; Faith Triumph over all forms of temptations, trials and troubles of life; Faith is the pathways to Heaven. Therefore, have faith in God!
