Conviction, A Pathway To Faith – Seeds Of Destiny Devotional, 10th January, 2022 By Pastor Paul Enenche
Conviction – A Pathway To Faith – Seeds Of Destiny 10 January 2022
SCRIPTURE: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Revelation must be translated into conviction for faith to happen.
In Christianity, faith is a critical subject. For a Christian to live a successful Christian life, faith must be in place. Faith is one subject that must not be overlooked if a Christian must live a successful and glorious life on earth. For example, all the men of impact in Scriptures were men of faith (Hebrews 11:2).
Therefore, it is very important to pay attention to our faith if we must have a solid destiny both in this world and in the world to come.
Now, how is faith developed?
Faith is developed by the establishment of conviction.
Revelation must be translated into conviction for faith to happen.
Romans 10:10 says:
For with the heart man believeth…
The Word of God that you read is useless until it establishes a belief in you. So, if you get a revelation from the Word of God, and you are excited about it, it must produce a conviction in you for it to translate into faith.
Your convictions make you take steps that may make people to be afraid for you whereas you are not afraid for yourself.
For example, people may be looking for what to eat but your revelation and conviction from scriptures showed you that it is not what enters your hand that determines your welfare but what leaves you in the direction of God. So, on the basis of that rugged insight and brutal conviction, despite the fact that there is shortage, you are releasing towards God’s direction. This confirms the existence of faith.
Beloved, until your faith is backed up with relevant action, it is a waste of confession.
REMEMBER THIS: Revelation must be translated into conviction for faith to happen.
Let the revelation of the Word of God in you produce conviction in your heart.
Take practical action based on your conviction.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for the insight in Your Word. I ask for grace for the revelation of Your Word to produce conviction that will lead me to faith-based actions, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Guilt is a killer of faith. When you are haunted by guilt, there are times you will want to make certain decrees and the devil will say, “Shut up! Remember what you did last time!” Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Genesis 46-50.
REFLECTION: Company with God is key to belief in God. People only doubt the character of the one they don’t know very well. To know Him is to believe Him.
