The Bible tells us that all things are possible for those who believe. The key to success is to first believe – believe that you can succeed. Choosing faith over doubt will determine your outcome. God has given to every one of us a measure of faith but what are you putting your faith in? What do you believe? Who do you trust? You can’t go forward sitting on the fence. Deep within you must choose what you are going to believe and that belief system will direct your path and lead you to your destiny. We all will come to a fork in the road and the path we take will be determined by the choices we make. Faith will always bring results and that is why God gave us this gift but many of us do not activate that gift and our measure of faith remains small while others activate their measure of faith and they get amazing results.
Faith is believing what you cannot see. It doesn’t matter if others around you see what you see because their eyes may not be open in this level of faith yet. Faith moves mountains but this level of faith is born out of the spirit of God. Christians should become so dependent upon God, trusting him and believing in him to the point that they become like a small child who is totally dependent upon their parents for everything. As a child of God, your heavenly Father wants you to know that he has been and will always be with you as your travel on your journey through life but you must choose to include him. He will not become an unwelcomed guest in your life, and your life matters to God. A relationship with God will change everything but most importantly, you will experience a change in heart. You will embrace life and live with a positive attitude because there will be no more doubt about who you are, what your purpose in life is or where you are going. Choose faith – you will be so glad that you did.
There is no such thing as a fatherless child. We might have homes where there is no father figure but every child comes into this world with a natural father. The good news for every Christian is that once they accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, they become part of the family of God and Almighty God becomes their heavenly Father. God is real and he has promised to never leave nor forsake those who have put their trust in him.
God is love and love is what the world is seeking today. Many of us judge love by the things people do or don’t do for us. The problem with that is no one is perfect; no one can be with you all of the time, and no one has the ability to solve all of your problems whether they be relational, physical, emotional, financial or spiritual except God. God’s love is unconditional because when we were still in sin, God showed us mercy and grace by giving us his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ as the atonement of our sins if we will just accept this gift by faith.
If you have a father who has guided you in the way you should go, you are truly blessed. If you grew up without a father and you are now a father yourself, God is your role model. The Word of God will teach you how to accept God’s love for you so that you can turn around and give it to your children. It is imperative that you keep your relationship with God strong. If you are going to depend on anyone, depend on God for everything. Don’t live your life empty. Some one in your world needs a “Dad” today and if you don’t have children of your own, embrace someone who needs to know what love really is. Love has found you – now give it away!
“Our Father which art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” This is how Jesus taught us to pray but do you realize that when you pray this prayer, you are asking for the kingdom of God to come to this earth, and do you realize that the kingdom of God is just a thought away? The kingdom of God is real. There is another dimension, a higher dimension that Believers can enter into where they will experience the power of Almighty God. The key to open the door of God’s kingdom is faith. You must believe that God is real and that his kingdom holds all the answers to our earthly trouble. Elijah prayed that his servant, Elisha’s eyes would be open so that Elisha could see what was not visible to the human eye when they were trapped in the mountains. Elisha could only see what was in front of him and what he saw caused him to be fearful. He was overwhelmed and believed that there was no way for them to get out of their situation. Elijah saw things differently. Elijah saw the army of the Lord surrounding them and he wanted Elisha to see it also. When the kingdom of God comes upon this earth, it changes things because the spirit of God is present and nothing and no one can usurp the will of God.
Purpose in your heart that you are going to live a godly lifestyle so that you will be in a position to see the kingdom of God on earth. God has a plan for your life and you don’t have to wait until you get to Heaven to enjoy the blessings of being a child of the Most High God. Pray that God will open your eyes so that you may see the supernatural that is going on around you all of the time. Walk by faith and not by sight every day of your life.
The gospels tell us a lot about the compassion of Jesus. Large crowds constantly followed Jesus and not only did he heal the physical bodies of the people who were brought to him, he also cared about their welfare. On two separate occasions when Jesus fed the 5,000 followed by his feeding of the 4,000 the Bible first tells us that initially the disciples wanted to send the crowds away so that they could feed themselves but Jesus had compassion on the crowds and he performed a miracle for them by blessing the little food that they had, and not only did every one eat, but they had leftovers as well.
Jesus cares about the details of your life. He not only wants you to be saved, he also wants you to have what you need on a day to day basis. The miracles in the Bible have one purpose and that is to increase our faith. Miracles tell us that there is nothing too difficult for God. Miracles tell us that with faith all things are possible; but we are not to have a relationship with God just for these signs and wonders. God does not need to show us a sign. Christians are to believe that He is and live their lives walking by faith and not by sight.
God is love. The question is do you love God? If you do, tell him so and be Christ-like and show the love of God to others. You just might be the only example of love someone needs today
