Such a short command in this passage below, but one which is not easy to obey. It is easy to say that you want to have more faith, it is much harder to live with great faith. The only way you can run the race is to take your eyes off things or people around you and look to Jesus. He’s the author of the race. He’s the goal to which you run. If you look to Jesus to supply your every need for the race, you’ll find faith growing in your heart and in your life. You see, it’s not great faith in God; it is faith in a great God. Have a wonderful day as you remain in His presence. Love you all.
“Then Jesus said to his disciples, Have faith in God.” Mark 11:22
You are correct in desiring to live a life that is pleasing to God. It is God’s desire that you pursue godliness so that HE might receive the glory from your life. Those who aspire to properly reflect the light of God through their lives have a goal that is worthy of achievement.
God never said it would be easy to be a great individual of faith. In fact, the disciples who were with Jesus on a regular basis were often chided for having little faith.
The command is short, but it is not simple. If we are going to live a life that is pleasing to God, we must daily fall on our face before God and ask HIM to forgive us for our lack of faith. Those who strive to add godliness to their lives understand that each day is a new day with God. Just because one day you found yourself on top of a mountain with a close relationship with God, it does not mean that the next day you will be walking in faith.
We must be diligent to add godliness to our life. This means that we need to daily fall on our knees and seek the will of God for our life. The closer our walk is with God, the easier it will be for us to walk in faith. The more we understand what God desires us to do, the easier it will be for us to reflect the light of God in the world around us. Nothing should surprise us when it comes to the power of God in our lives. We should be ready always to demonstrate to the world what God can do through us.
