Romans 1:16-17 (NKJV) For I am not ashamed of the gospel [a]of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

God desires that each of us who has received the gift of faith that saves can continue to develop the measure of faith that we have to grow from one level of faith to the next level of faith, because actually God provides there are various dimensions of faith that we can enter so that we can enjoy different types of daily life in the reality of the kingdom of God.

Living in faith is not only related to spiritual aspects, but our daily lives must also be built on the foundation of faith. Our present life is the result of our faith in Christ.

Galatians 2:20 (TLB) I have been crucified with Christ: and I MYSELF NO LONGER LIVE, but Christ lives in me. And THE REAL LIFE I NOW HAVE within this body is A RESULT OF MY TRUSTING IN THE SON OF GOD, who loved me and gave himself for me.

If we live our daily lives with difficulty, struggle, pressure, and full of turmoil of negative emotions, in fact our life is not being built on the foundation of faith. Because if it is so, then the life we live will always be pleasant, full of joy and peace, because faith in Christ will always lead us to walk the path of His victory, there is only joy and shouts of victory.

Therefore, God wants us to always focus on His Word, not to be distracted by various circumstances, negative outward facts and data around us, because faith grows because we hear, understand and live believing holding only His Word.

So even though we face situations and conditions that are difficult and full of danger, the intervention of the kingdom of heaven will always really save, restore, and even bring us victory with full of joy and shouts, as Paul experienced (2 Corinthians 11:23-28)

His eyes only focus on God’s faithful love and the promises of His Word, even though he has to be hit by various kinds of hardships and even death, he is still grateful and rejoices. Paul had emptied himself to live only for God in Christ Jesus, by always doing God’s will/plan through his life.

God will enable us to always be able to walk the victorious paths of faith when we continue to focus only on His Word. I pray, let each of us truly live only at the measure of faith that God has set for us.
