Have you ever been at a place in your life where you felt the Lord was telling you to let go of the situation and trust in Him, but all you could see was how things looked from a logical, human perspective? I have been there many times but each time I let go I am encouraged to know that God is living out a divine plan through me because of my faith in Him (Mark 11:22).
Walking by faith is not always easy but I want you to look at the heroes of faith and you will see people who believed it before they saw it. You will see people who went when God said ‘go’ even though they didn’t know where they were going or what it would be like when they got there. You will see people who walked by faith and not by sight.
We are told in Hebrews 11:1 that “Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” The New International Version translates that verse this way “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” What is God calling you to do that will require you to step into a walk of faith? Faith is believing God and acting on what you believe. What are your beliefs? All eyes are on you now because of your faith. The fight of faith is on! Whatever mountain of difficulty you have, be it a mountain of debt or serious health condition, Jesus says in Mark 11:23, “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”
You may not be there yet, but you’re closer than you were yesterday. Have faith in God. Give your faith a target. Go ahead and update your “Faithbook” status. If it’s weak, take in more of of God’s Word. Say to yourself: Faith is the cure that heals all my troubles. I am of good cheer. I am not afraid. I fear not. Speak to whatever you are facing today. Declare that your faith is in God’s Word and you are coming out this triumphantly by the grace of God!
For every problem, God already has the solution! He can turn around any situation. His goodness, mercy, grace and love are following us today. Doors of opportunity are being opened. Bondages of lack and fear be gone in Jesus’ name. When we are tempted, he will provide a way out so that we can stand up under it – 1 Cor 1013. We are protected, we are healed, and we know that everything will work out right.
