Faith is reaching out in trust, standing on the promises of God’s Word, when all else has failed!
Faith is standing on promises that are in opposition to every circumstance and feeling that you have; that says that though I die, I will die trusting in God’s faithfulness! Faith is giving God room to do the unexpected in your life, by not limiting your possibilities, and by availing yourselves of options you may not have otherwise considered possible!
FAITH IS MAKING ROOM FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO MOVE IN YOUR LIFE!!!
|When all seems lost… there is God!!!
When life seems to have passed you by and all seems lost; when circumstances and problems mount and all you can see is more of the same; now is the time to dig in, tie a knot at the end of your rope, for your salvation is near!
God’s promise is never to leave you, nor forsake you; and though it appears from all you can see that He has done just that; and all rhyme and reason seems to have escaped you as to why, know this, God is NOT a man that He should lie!
When circumstances and life seems to contradict God’s Word, and when everything indicates otherwise, this is God’s test.
Faith in what you can see and what you already have is NOT faith at all; but rather FAITH by definition, as we read in Hebrews chapter 11, is based on nothing more than a HOPE; and it is made evident in things that are not yet felt nor seen in the natural.
Faith always sees through the eyes of the spirit, those things that are not yet visible, and are not yet manifested in the natural; but are nevertheless promised in God’s Word!
Faith also will cause us not just to see, but also it will cause us to speak of those things that are not, as though they were; just as we can learn from the “Father of Faith,” father Abraham himself:
17(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
18Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
19And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:
20He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
21And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
So regardless of where you are today; or what’s going on in your life; it matters not what problems, trials, or tribulations have encroached upon your life, God is still on His throne; and is no further away than the very next breathe that you take.
Do not look for Him in heaven above, nor scan the horizon for a some sign of his presence!
Rather look inside your own heart (your spirit man); for the evidence you seek will not be found in anything you can see, feel, or touch; but it will be found in the FAITH that says I don’t care what happens; I don’t care what circumstances or problems are thrown at me; I will not let go, and I will not abandon my trust and hope in God, that He shall perform His Word in my life EXACTLY as it is written in His Word, and exactly as He has promised.
