These words jumped out at me when I opened up my Precept Matthew Study. Where do I fall amongst these scenarios? Do I have a little faith? After all, Jesus says, “Faith the grain of a mustard seed can move a mountain. If I have no faith; it means I do not believe the Lord God can accomplish what concerns me.
When is our faith tested? Is it when things are going wonderfully well? Usually; it’s when you are at a very low point in your life. That’s when the enemy of your soul wants to shove the reality of your life in your face. He wants to make you question: “How’s that faith thing working out for you?” Where is your God now when you need Him the most?
How we should long to be a person of great faith. There are many people mentioned in the Bible. Moses, Joshua, Abraham, Joseph and David to name a few. They never recanted their faith.
I witnessed to a young lady who prayed to receive Christ one evening and then recanted by the next morning. She called to say, “Mrs. Libby, I don’t want you to hate me, but I didn’t really mean what I said about trusting Jesus as my Savior. What? Didn’t mean it? I was so sad for her denial of the one true God. I don’t know what happened to her but the truth will always prevail. I prayed that she would one day come to a true knowledge of Jesus Christ as her Savior.
Without faith it’s impossible to please Christ. Allow Him to build you up in your most holy faith.
Prayer in Motion:
Lord Jesus, may I be known by You as a person of great faith. I love You and thank You for training me in righteousness. In Jesus name I offer up this prayer. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
