Eph 5:1 Be therefore imitators of God, as beloved children.
The Apostle Paul mentions something awesome in his letter to the Church in Ephesus and encourages them to learn and desire to be like God.
Therefore I want to submit to you that it is possible to learn from God and be like Him. God is the first person to PRACTISE FAITH.
And there are many people who have also done the same after the steps of God.
Now in Lystra, Paul was preaching and saw a man lame in his feet from birth and perceiving that this man had ‘faith’ enough to be healed, he called out loudly to the man as Acts 14 tells us, ‘Stand up straight on your feet’. And the man leaped and walked.
And then we see Samuel the Prophet,
1Sa 12:18 So Samuel called to the LORD; and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel.
God, in the beginning, stood over nothing and declared in the presence of the Angels, LET THERE BE… and there was because God believed his own word. If that principle does not exist, then it wouldn’t have to work against us. Because believing or having faith in the word activates it, that’s why Samuel had to apply it in the presence of the people and they feared THE LORD and SAMUEL. Elijah did likewise.
Be ye followers, be ye imitators of God as dear children.

What if faith fails?
What if Nothing had happened when God said, ‘Let there be.’ What if nothing had happened when Paul spoke to the Man? What if nothing had happened when Elijah called for fire? Well, they imitated God and believed the Word and it worked. Hey, the Word Works. It will work for you.
The competitor of Faith is Fear.
Fear is another form of Faith.
- Faith makes you believe and hope for what you will DEFINITELY RECEIVE. FEAR on the other hand makes you believe in the existence of what does not exist and then you lose what you should receive.
- Faith makes you gain whereas fear makes you lose.
So if you want to walk in Faith you have to understand and know how the faith called fear looks like.
- FEAR makes you believe you can’t make it. It makes you feel it won’t work. Fear raises doubt.
- FEAR asks a very frequent question starting with 2 words ‘WHAT IF’
My dear, next time you visit the Supernatural market, look out for products labeled like these above and if you don’t find FAITH, come back later.
If you will be successful in handling faith, you’ve got to learn how to deal with fear first.
Faith goes beyond a feeling.
Faith goes beyond a feeling. I want to teach you this because sometimes it’s very confusing how to tell if you have faith or not especially when you are in a depressing, repressing, and compressing situation.
Do you have to feel hyper? Do you have to be shouting positive declarations? Do you have to be repeating positive confessions? Should you have a burning sensation in your heart? Should you have a very positive feeling about what you are believing God for? Should you have one of these or all of these to know that you have faith?
