Encounter With The Spirit Of Faith



The spirit of faith is one of the components of the Holy spirit. The spirit of faith happened to be the master key to a world of unlimited possibilities. 2 Corinthians 4:13, Jude vs3, Hebrews 11:33,34


It is the spirit of faith that establishes our dominions on earth. “Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” Ephesians 6:16 . It is the only way for our heaven on earth mandate can be a reality.


What Is Unique About The Spirit Of Faith?


  • The spirit of faith empowers us to believe all things. “so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets” Acts 24:14b. It takes the spirit of faith to believe all things. It is what you believe that you are empowered to become.
  • The spirit of fear cannot survive where spirit of faith is domicile. The testimony in the book of Hebrews chapter 11 is a testimony of spirit of faith in action.
  • The spirit of faith is a speaking spirit. “For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.” Matthew 10:20
  • It has a transferable virtue. There is a wide gap between a “word” of faith and the “spirit” of faith. “And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.” 2 Kings 2:15
  • The spirit of faith has no feelings.
  • It subdues the forces of darkness. What it says it never doubts cos it will come to pass.
  • It is an ever winning spirit. 1 John 5:3. No matter the fierce of the challenges we might be encountering, we must acknowledge the spirit of faith is an ever winning spirit.
  • It releases upon us the wisdom that passes all understanding. Hebrews 4:3,9-11.
  • It brings us to the realm of unexplainable rest. ‘The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” Exodus 14:14, Psalm 46:10. The state of rest here means, a state of signs and wonders.
  • The spirit of faith triggers the supernatural.


How To Encounter The Spirit Of Faith?


  1. There must be a desire and thirsty for it, before you can encounter it. “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.” Psalm 63:1,2
  2. It is our strength and staff in the days of battle and trial.
  3. It puts you on top of all issues of life.
  4. It is a driving force “And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness” Mark 1:12


It is not enough to have the spirit of faith, but we have the responsibility to keep it alive always. By staying with the right word. you must feed it with the right word and by studying the word at all times.

You must feed it with the word or you quench it. Cos it draws its strength and energy from the word. It’s likened to a spiritual aircraft, it must be maintained or it will be granded. Leviticus 6:12,13.


You need the word everyday to keep the fire burning. “And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me” Ezekiel 2:2


Every encounter we have with the word of God will release His power upon our lives for triumph at all time. Jeremiah 33:20-25, Genesis 8:22, Deuteronomy 8:18


May God help us to acknowledge His spirit of faith and remain with the zeal it propels in Jesus name.

Faith In God’s Spoken Word


Faith is necessary, essential and indispensable to life – eternal life, abundant life, happy, healthy and holy life, fruitful and fulfilled life. Hebrews 11:3

Faith – true, vibrant, dynamic, positively productive faith – must be in the true and living God. Faith in dead gods and deceptive, impotent men is disappointing and damning.


Faith in self is deluding and destructive. Faith in man-made system and Satan’s falsehood is dangerous and deadly.


God, the true God, the living God, the eternal God, the mighty and powerful God, the faithful God, the unchanging and infallible God, the loving and caring God must be the object, foundation and focus of our faith.


This is the only true God, who “framed,” formed, made, created “the world” by His Word. The “things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.


Man has to use material things, which already exist to make or manufacture new products. God created all things out of nothing. He is God of all power, of infinite ability.


God is who He is, whether we know Him or not. God can do all things; will do what He can do, whether we know it or not.


A father is who he is and can do whatever he can do, whether his child knows it or not.

Knowing what the father can do, who he is and what he is willing to do gives the child trust, confidence and peace of mind. Knowing who God is, what His power and authority can accomplish, what He has done and promised to do, how faithful, loving and caring He is grants His child trust, confidence and faith.


We have full assurance, firm confidence, unshakeable persuasion that our God will do all He said He will do.


Faith permits its possessor to rejoice in firm assurance while waiting for the accomplishment of the promise given by God. Knowing who God is, the believer is “fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He [is] able also to perform” (Romans 4:21).
