What do you know and believe today? Jesus knows what He can do and it’s our faith added to His power that brings about miracles in our lives.
Sadly however many people never stop long enough to consider what they do believe, nor take the time to discover how to “work their faith.” Many can make the mistake of waiting until they are suddenly faced with a crisis or something that scares them and then they wonder why their prayers and faith don’t seem to be working, or why they feel so far from God.
Yet the bible says we have all been given a measure of faith, (Romans 12:3) but it does need to be put to work everyday. Thats why some people’s faith seems to work better for them than others; they have chosen to put their faith to work for them.
The more we use our faith the more of God’s ability we will have at our disposal, because His ability in us is waiting to be unleashed upon our circumstances.
However if we know we need to grow our measure of faith to deal with the situations we face God has given us a resource to power our faith up. It’s His words found in the Bible. Reading His word, hearing it being preached, and time in His presence are the only source of faith we need. For“faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)
“Faith is a servant and is designed to do things for us that are impossible. It feeds on the impossible and breaks limitations.” (Bill Winston)
If you don’t believe you have enough faith, then I encourage you to do something about it! There is no point walking around saying, “I cant’ do that, or “my faith doesn’t work for me”, because God himself has given us everything we need. We do our part by releasing and exercising our faith and God does His by bringing the answer.
God has given us the ability to receive, so make the effort to “power up” your faith everyday by spending time in His presence, reading and studying His word and discovering what He says about your situation, need or dream.
Jesus said it this way, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)
“Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.” (Mark 11:22-23)
Why not see what your faith can do for you and for those around you today and put your faith to work.
Prayer: Lord thank you that we all have been given a measure of faith. Help me today to be bold enough to do something with what you have given me, and to use my faith today. In Jesus name amen
