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 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.
