faith points


Have your ever seen special offers that say, “for a limited time only! Earn triple points when you…” Such promotions encourage people to engage in some activity. If they do, they will receive special bonus points over and above what they usually would get. It’s like that with God too.

God says,

“And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled. But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here. Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

Acts 16:26-30

Scoring faith bonus points with God

There are times when praising God and telling Him how great He is, earns you a lot more points with Him than usual. Our Father has this thing about faith and loves it when you look bad circumstances in the face and praise Him anyway.

Adam and Eve didn’t listen to God’s word, but sinned by eating the forbidden fruit. That hurt our Father a lot, because, though He had given every possible advantage to mankind, they didn’t trust Him. Ever since humans disobeyed it has been a sore point with our Creator. If you ever really want to get God’s attention simply trust His voice above anything and everything else.

Triple the faith points when times are tough

Therefore, today, earn triple faith points with God.  Trust and have faith in Him when everything looks the very worst. The best time to tell YHWH how great He is, is when imminent disaster looms. Remember, all that Paul and Silas really did was sing songs of praise when everyone else believed they had no hope. Faith in the midst of impossible odds shines ever so much brighter. God simply loves that sort of demonstration and nine times out of ten He will answer your faith, because you trust Him, in spectacular ways.

Count your faith points out! Go for it!
