TOPIC: FAITH BOOSTER
Scripture: Jude 1: 20. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! A booster is someone or something that can increase the force, power, or amount of (something).
Today we shall be considering faith boosters.
What are these faith boosters?
Faith boosters are things that can amplify the power of our faith, the force of our faith or increase our faith. They include:
1. Speaking in tongues.
The matter of speaking in tongues has been largely misunderstood by many Christians because it is perceived to be a Pentecostal issue. Some consider it as a gift of the Holy Spirit that is given to only a privileged few.
However, I want to say speaking in tongues must be understood from two dimensions:
A. The divers kind of tongues(1Cor.12:10,28,30): This is speaking in tongues that is accompanied with interpretation of tongues. It is equivalent to prophecy.
This is why it is a ministry gift to the church of Jesus. It’s administration in a public gathering is two or three persons speak per time and others interpret it. And if there’s no interpreter like him, he should keep silent (1Cor.14:27-30).
Since not every one will be ministering at the same time, hence not all can manifest the gifts of divers kind of tongues. Even though all are filled with the Holy Spirit.
B. The tongues as a devotional tool. This is the speaking in tongues that every believers must participate in. It is the initial evidence of being filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts.2:4). This is the speaking that boosts your faith.
1 Corinthians 14: 4. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.
To edified means to build up like an edifice. So we are commanded to build up our faith through this medium:
Jude 1: 20. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
How does it operate?
1. It happens when we open our mouth to pray. The best time to pray is when you are down emotionally, when you are confused not knowing what to do.
Romans 8: 26. Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
2. It happens when we pray in the spirit! What does it mean to pray in the spirit?:
1 Corinthians 14: 2. For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.
To speak mystery in the spirit is praying in the spirit. It also means praying Holy Spirit inspired prayers.
Ephesians 6: 18. Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Beloved, make praying in tongues a devotional lifestyle! Do it in the morning first thing, do it in the day time do it at midnight and every other time. Even while in motion you can do it qietly. On the steering while driving, keep at it and while walking you can maintain speaking in tongues and your faith will never know a down time.
Beloved, is your faith going down? Do you feel like throwing in the trowel? Is your faith failing you? Kindly seek for a quiet corner where you can pray in tongues until you are satisfied and your faith will be heavily boosted.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real! Those that reject Jesus and his atoning work will finally be separated from him in hell. Make your way right with Jesus today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord I receive grace to pray in tongues and build up my faith in the name of Jesus.
– I prophesy the release of Grace for tongues of fire in the name of Jesus.
– For every depressed mind, receive a lifting now in the precious name of Jesus.

God bless you.
