Good morning Lovelies. Father God, give us the courage to face each new day with all its challenges. Remind us that You are greater than our perception of who You are, and in all things, You prevail. Quiet my heart, give rest to my soul, and refocus my spirit, for true renewal comes only from You. Holy Spirit please help me to be intentional with my time and worship, and encourage me to find rest in You alone. In the Mighty, Matchless, name of Jesus, Amen!!
Sometimes people look at God as just a mediocre man. But by doing so we put limits on Him and our expectations are very shallow when it comes to Him. After all, as far as we see it, it looks impossible at times. But there is a supernatural element that God possesses that we must not deny. There are blessings in Him that are just waiting to explode into your life. There are things that He is just waiting for us to ask, that He would be happy to unleash upon is. But it is according to our faith.
Your faith is not based on your belief the miracle can or cannot happen, but your faith is based on your belief in God. You cannot believe Him for a blessing, but not believe Him enough to worship Him. You cannot ask God to heal you and not believe Him enough to even hear you. You cannot want from Him over here but over there you are not obeying him. Straddling the fence so to speak. We need to grow up not just in life but in Christ! The things you do in faith represent your faith!
That mustard seed is very small, but it grows when it’s planted and watered. In other words, if you have a seed, it can grow into something. But if there is no seed, no faith that it will grow, nothing grows. Your mustard seed of faith must grow in time or it will not produce what God has planned for your life. So, you cannot just expect God to do things if you are not doing anything. We have our part also. Therefore, your doing takes faith in His existence it exhibits faith.
The Bible says that to come to God, you must first believe that He is whom He says He is. How do you do that you might ask? Well, I’m glad you asked. It’s by hearing! The Bible says that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. When you read the Word, it testifies of Him and speaks to you. It tells you what to do and what not to do. It opens your eyes and your heart so that you can be open to receive from Him. It shines the light on your dark areas and directs you onto the right path.
The Word is your faith builder. Believing God for a blessing takes faith. The mustard seed represents the starting point. That’s your belief in Him. And upon that, you can read the Word and build your faith. If you are asking God for some things and have some miracles before Him that you need, you must first show that He is God in your life by following and obeying Him. Don’t be like the children of Israel and just wander around for 40 years going nowhere and getting nothing unless Moses got it for them.
But grow up in your faith and serve God consistently. You will then be able to speak to any situation and it will conform to your words because your faith in God is only as strong as your relationship with Him.
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17
“ So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
Live life, give people hope and share your heart, wisdom, and resources. Never place a period where God says there should be a comma.
As always peace and blessings, be safe. Take advantage of your opportunities but never allow your opportunities to take advantage of you. Remember God loves you and so do I. © 5.2.18
