Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12:9a

1 Corinthians 12:9a says, “…to another faith by the same Spirit,…” The gift of faith was manifest consistently in the life of Samson. The gift of faith is the supernatural ability to do anything needed in order to save lives or destroy enemies. Samson’s gift of faith destroyed the enemy over and over again. It is obvious that the gift of faith can be used in wartime, but it can also be used to save people. The gift of faith makes all things possible to us. I had a friend years ago that had a massive tree in his front lawn. And that tree dumped massive volumes of leaves on his lawn year after year, which he had to rake. He got fed up one morning, went outside, pointed at the tree and said, “You will never drop another leaf on this lawn, in Jesus name! You are done!” And on that day a freak windstorm came through his city and blew the tree down into the street. The city had to come out and remove it. They cut it into firewood and because the tree was in front of his house, piled firewood up along his fence. The gift of faith was manifest through him on that day and the Holy Spirit turned that tree into firewood. If my friend can walk in that dimension, surely you and I can listen to God’s leading and trust Him to manifest the gift of faith for His Kingdom purposes in our life.
