Hebrews 2:1 (NET) Therefore we must pay closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.
Nonye had believed in the Lord since when she was on campus, but it now appeared that her faith in the Lord was waning. Years ago, she believed in divine healing, enjoyed it and even ministered it to others, but she was now doubting if she could be healed supernaturally. She decided that she was no longer just going to let her life go by, but was going to “[f]ight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life” (1 Timothy 6:2). She determined to be more deliberate about her spiritual growth. She took a break and went on a three-day retreat in which she basically prayed and read faith-building books- the ones she used to read ten years ago when she was spiritually on fire. During the retreat, her fire was rekindled and she started walking at a higher level of faith. She was so engrossed in God’s word that she did not remember to worry about the disease that was troubling her. Many days passed and she found that she was now totally healed.
The kingdom of God allows violence, and the violent take it by force(see Matthew 11:12). Many times, if believers are not deliberate and violently intentional about their spiritual growth, they may just find that their faith is waning, and they are being cheated by the devil daily.
Naturally speaking, after we have learned and understood something, we tend to keep it aside and go for the next new thing. That is not the way the word of faith should be handled. We must pay closer attention to what we have heard before so that it does not slip away(Hebrews 2:1). Every word that has ever become Rhema to you should become your daily bread. Not an occasional menu.
Go into today remembering to fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on the realities of your divine(eternal) life daily. Remember that our weapon is the word of God (see Ephesians 6:17).
Prayer: Dear Lord, please help me walk in an increasing measure of your grace daily. Amen.
