Faith doesn’t make God do something; it gives us access to what God already intended for us. We pray for God to increase our faith and He said, “Faith the grain of a mustard seed can move mountains.” Matthew 17:20 We don’t need more faith. We just need to access what is already there.
I’ve seen people wear a necklace with a little mustard seed encased in a very small glass. I’m sure they wear it to remind themselves to have faith. Hebrews 11:6 tells us, “Without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Although prosperity gospel teachers would disagree; faith is not believing God for a million dollars to come in the mail tomorrow. (Although He certainly could do that, if He wills it to be so.) It also doesn’t mean healing for everyone for which you have prayed; although He certainly could do that, when it aligns with His will.
2 Corinthians 5:7 says, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” Have we even begun to grasp walking by faith? Do we trust God fully in what we cannot see? Do we hope beyond all hope that He will accomplish the impossible? I still believe, “Things impossible with men are possible with God.” (Luke 18:27)
Living the “faith-filled” life is walking out faith when we are as 2 Corinthians 4:8 2 says; “hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down , but not destroyed, always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.” That my friend is living the faith-filled life.
Prayer in Motion:
Lord, may I walk out the truth of Your Word regarding my faith. I want to live a faith-filled life. When I say, I trust You; I want to trust You with all my heart. I just love You so. In Jesus Name. Amen.
