Dunamis’ Daily Devotional June 8, 2017 by Pastor Paul Enenche - Dogged and Rugged Faith in Action
Scripture: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Hebrews 11:1-2
Thought For The Day: The dogged and rugged faith is the faith that does not shift its grounds.
Yesterday, we saw another identifiable feature of the mustard-seed faith, as doggedness and ruggedness. That is faith that does not shift its grounds. Today, we want to look at a practical example of the dogged and rugged faith. That is, an example of the practical demonstration of dogged and rugged faith.
Lester Sumrall was a man who operated the dogged and rugged faith. He once went to a village in a southern American country which was dominated by terrible idols to preach. Upon his arrival, he met a voodoo priest who was performing a demonic sacrifice. Without wasting time, he went straight and laid hands on the priest and cast the demon out of him. Consequently, the priest lost his demonic power.
When Lester Sumrall got home that night, his room began to vibrate. He got up and said ‘devil, I cast you out of the priest in the day time, I have not changed my mind.’ Suddenly, the vibrations stopped and the devil disappeared.
Thereafter, he realised that his bed was shifted as a result of the vibration. So, he said ‘devil, come back and put the bed in order’. The vibrations started again and the bed was rearranged to its original position.
Beloved, I decree the impartation of the dogged and rugged faith on you so you can bring back what the devil has stolen from your life and family in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: The dogged and rugged faith is the faith that does not shift its grounds.
1. Ask God for the impartation of the spirit of faith.
2. Act on every revealed word of God.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask for the impartation of rugged faith in Jesus’ Name.

Amazing Fact: The tongue is not the only place where taste buds are found. They can also be found on the inside of our cheeks, on lips, on the roof of our mouth and even under the tongue.
