November 12th 2015 – Live by Faith

download (9)

“Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.” (Habakkuk 2:4)

Faith… That one word is very pregnant with meaning, but at its root, “faith” is trusting in God. To have faith is to trust that God is going to do what He says He will do. This is the essence of the Christian walk, and it is part of our salvation and our continued journey with the Lord. The hardest part about faith often comes in the waiting. God has promised us many things, including His return, yet our waiting for that to happen can be difficult. This is why it’s important to trust what God says over what we see around us.

When we look at the world around us, we see corrupt governments, sinful behaviors and the devil wreaking havoc in people’s lives. This causes us to cry out, “Lord Jesus, come,” but as we pray this, we also need to walk in faith. We need to trust that God’s plan is better than ours. He may be allowing the suffering to continue for a little longer so that others may come to salvation through Jesus. The good news is that one day He will return and when He does, all things will be made right and our world will never be the same. This is not a fairy tale, this is reality. Yes, we believe it by faith, but our faith is in the One God who has proven Himself faithful time and time again.

When Christ returns, the world will be remade, our flesh will be made new and the devil will be destroyed.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank You for the promises in Scripture. Give me the faith to trust in those promises regardless of what I am feeling or what I see in the world around me. I believe with my whole heart that You are God, that Jesus is my Savior and that He will one day return. Give me the power to share this message of hope with all those around me. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen

    Faith – belief, hope, or an expectancy…

    Isaiah (40:31) states, “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength”.

    David prays (Psalm 33:22) “May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you”. In addition (33:20), “We wait in hope for the Lord, he is our help and our shield”.

    These scriptures are hope in God that involves patience and persistence, expressions of faith…

    “Thank You, Heavenly Father, for Your Grace, Lovingkindness, and Mercy. We praise You for Jesus coming to save us, and we acknowledge You as the Origin of our ‘faith’ in Christ as our personal Savior. May it please You to bless others this day to accept Your Son and Your gift of Eternal Life through Him. In His name. Amen.”
    ” For by Grace you are saved, through Faith, and that not of your-self, it (faith) is the gift of God, least any man boast.”
