Faith Faith Faith!!
Moses had it, Abraham had it, David had plenty and so did Noah! If your story was in the bible, would it speak of the great faith you had? most of us, if we're honest, would say no. The truth of the matter is, most people struggle with FAITH. We are trained to respond to our environment, so we react to what we see, feel, hear,touch and smell. We make decisions based on our culture, our surroundings and our feelings. FAITH moves beyond the senses, beyond the norm and far beyond your comfort zone!
So if we could take a moment to analyze your faith level, let's start with this-no matter who you are, where you live or what you do. YOU HAVE FAITH. The bible says that every one is given a measure of faith. So, we all have some amount of faith to work with. (Thank God) Whether your faith is big or small, is really not relevant. The key here is: Does your FAITH work?? The bible states in the book of James, that faith without WORKS is dead! that's right, you have to put your faith to work-give it something to do in your life.
Faith only works when you work it! What are you hoping for? What are you believing for? whatever it is, faith can make it happen. Think of this, we always pray when we want something right? its great to pray, lets say your praying for a new job, God hears your request and then He watches to see what your faith will do. That's right, God is not leaving Heaven to bring you into a new job, He has given you authority (by faith) to make it happen. So when your faith is alive, your faith will fill out an application for that job, go to an interview and take all the necessary steps to obtain a job. When your faith is dead, you just sit and wait for a job to come to you. Get it?
If your faith has died, it's time to resurrect it. Yes it's time to wake that faith up and put it to work in your life. Faith loves to work!!! Faith will work in all areas of your life-if you let it. Here are some great ways to breathe new life into your faith and get it moving: #1-don't compare your faith to anyone on the planet. Your faith is your faith and it works well enough for your life, you don't need my faith to get what you need. #2-Test it out. Set a small goal and take a step of faith towards it. (practice makes perfect) #3-Read & Speak, find all the verses you can about faith (in the bible) and read through them daily. As you read these verses, speak them out loud. In your times of doubt and fear, speak those words of faith over your situation.
My friend I hope you are encouraged to start using FAITH, to move those mountains out of your life. Yes you have the power, yes you have the authority to employ your faith and put it to work! What has your faith done in your life lately? (leave a comment below. we're listening)
