Apostle Grace Lubega
2 Timothy 1:12 (KJV); For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
Yesterday, we looked at the first degree of faith, which is the knowledge of God.
The second degree is to believe God personally.
In this life, there are people who believe God is a healer but they do not believe that He can heal them. They believe that God is a provider but they cannot believe that He can provide for them.
Their faith in what God can do is generic. However, that is not how the world of faith works.
Faith is personal. It is not enough to know what God can do, you must also understand that He can do it for you.
This second degree of faith requires that you examine yourself and do some serious soul searching.
You must be able to honestly ask yourself the question, “Do I really believe that God can do this for me?”
When you are honest in examining your faith, God ceases to be merely a healer, He becomes YOUR healer. He ceases to be merely a provider, He becomes YOUR provider.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Faith is personal. It is not enough to know what God can do, you must also understand that He can do it for you.
PRAYER: My Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I know that You are able to do exceedingly above what I hope and expect. My eyes are set on You, my trust is in You and no other. In all my ways, I acknowledge You because You are the way. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
