FAITH!

Have you ever been in a place in your relationship with God that you have FAITH yet you still tend to worry. You’ve prayed about the situation and it seems as if your prayer has fallen on deaf ears. You’ve fasted, you’ve believed, you’ve trusted, you called your prayer partner and both you and him/her prayed about a certain situation yet it still seems like nothing is going the way that you want it to? Well, your not alone because that’s exactly where I personally am tonight! I write this blog knowing that some how God is going to deliver me out of this financial crisis that seemingly has arisen.

You know, I am extremely thankful for the roof over my head, the car that I drive, the clothes on my back and even the crazy job that I have. But it’s just not enough to be thankful in words. You have to be thankful in deeds as well (rather, in your actions). The spirit of complaining has come over me for some unknown reason to where I am so upset with my financial status in life. I am annoyed with the job that I have, I want a better car, I want a completely furnished house and well, the list goes on and on. Lets not talk about the crazy things family can put you through. Yet through it all God has proven himself to be faithful. Funny, God believes in me, why wont I believe and trust in Him? Good questions huh?

The Living Bible says in Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong! Be courageous! Do not be afraid of them! For the Lord your God will be with you. He will neither fail you nor forsake you.

Yes Lord. That’s a powerful text. The Word of God promises that he will be with me. He will never fail me. He will never forsake me. Man that’s powerful. 1 Peter 5:7 is even more powerful.

Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.

Huh??????? You mean God literally wants all of our cares and worries because He is always thinking about me and watching me and is concerned about me? So wait! Even though I don’t hear Him, even though I cant feel Him (right now) I still have a guarantee according to His Word that He (God) is thinking about me and is concerned about me (Oooo, I feel the load getting a little bit lighter now). All I have to do is give Him all my worries for he cares for me. Thank you Jesus!

With that said, I know I’m not the only one in cyberland that is saved, sanctified, Holy Ghost Filled, fire baptised, been down in Jesus Name who feels like this. Tonight, I am going to encourage myself with the Words of the Lord. I must HAVE FAITH IN GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Join me tonight (10:49pm eastern) in building up your faith in the Lord by trusting Him and standing on every promise that He gives us. Remember, He wont give you more than you can bare. Just HAVE FAITH!
