Have Faith in God!

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.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
