Gotta Have Faith...



"Both faith and fear require you to believe something that you cannot see. I choose faith. " - The Purpose Driven Life
I talk about my church a lot because I get a lot of relevant and practical application from it for my life. Right now, it seems like everyone (my pastor and my TV pastors included...lol) are all talking about the mechanics of faith.

On Sunday, Pastor Ramsey talked about not getting discouraged in the storm. Here are some of the highlights:
  • Faith still requires active participation from you - you are believing God for something, and you give it to Him, but then you have to take steps towards realizing your dreams and goals (because faith without works is dead).
  • A sign that you have faith is that you are PREPARING for what you are believing for (ex: believing to own a house? Then start seriously saving for it); God can only give you what you have faith to believe for.
  • When God created the world, He first SPOKE what he wanted. It is important to remember that our words and confession have so much power.
  • Faith is more than just blind positive thinking. Faith does not ignore what it sees, but it is not AFFECTED by what it sees. For example, when God said "Let there be light", He was not denying the fact that there was darkness, but He was denying darkness the opportunity to affect what He knew would come to pass.
  • We are all "pregnant with potential", and we can either trust God, or go at it alone.
  • When the storm comes, it does not change what you know about God, and what His word says about you.

Have a great faith-filled day!

  1. I so needed to read this. I have been low in my faith and I know it can only be a sign that God led me to this post.
