Living By Faith

Living by Faith

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

Listen to the Word of God as much as possible. “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). Constant attention to the Word of God produces faith, especially if we attend to it with an open heart and mind. The book of Proverbs encourages us to constantly keep the Word in our hearts and to keep our attention on it (Proverbs 4:20-22). Health is one of the benefits promised.

What we listen to affects what we believe. If we listen to the TV more than to the Word, we will believe the lies of the world more than we will believe what God says. Constant attention to lies produces deception. Eventually the mind will accept something if that thing is heard often enough and persuasively enough. That is why we should keep hearing the Word of God, through preaching, Christian Cds, confession of the Word, daily fellowship with godly Christians. This will cause us eventually to believe the truth from our hearts.

I’m Trusting God

I’m trusting God …Trusting is a choice, not a feeling. The Bible tells us repeatedly that God loves you and always keeps His promises. TRUST (in God) a belief in God’s truth, ability and strength. To put it simply, trusting in God means believing what He says about Himself, about the world and about you is true and unchangeable. Include God in everything you do, and this way, you give Him a chance to keep you on the right track. You may not always know what lies ahead.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

He’s Got You

When God says don’t, He means it.
That may feel defeating. But it should empower you!
He never asks us to do what we can’t, with His help.
Do not worry then, saying, “What will we eat?” or
“What will we drink?” or “What will we wear for clothing?”
For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your
heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
MÄTTHEW6:31-32

Love

The more we love now, the greater our treasure grows in heaven.
And perhaps that gives Jesus even more to work with
as He prepares your heavenly home.
In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so,
I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.
JOHN 14:2

Believe

Life before Jesus can’t truly be compared with life after.
You were once a caterpillar, crawling and eating.
Now you are a butterfly, a thing of real beauty.
A new creation in Christ.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life;
he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone
who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”
JOHN 11:25-26

It’s time to shine

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua 1:8

To live according to God’s Word is not as simplistic as rehearsing or reciting what Scripture says. Instead, to live by God’s Word means to design your life in a way that reflects His teachings. God wants us to live so in tune with Scripture that we think about what He teaches throughout the day. If we call ourselves believers in Christianity, then we should understand what our religious text, the Bible, says about our faith. The more versed we are in the Bible, the more we can become like Jesus. The more like Jesus we are, the more God can call us to His purpose. Not only will we be redeemed, but we can help God redeem others.

Matthew 5:16

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Behind the scenes

I decree and declare..

Healty thoughts 💭 God thoughts 💭 for those who are struggling to be positive💭 We can sometimes get to a point in life where nothing seems to be going right, things seem impossible and nothing seems to be in our favor, when at first things seemed to be going really good. Well, that’s not always the case, sometimes God has an unseen plan that we don’t seem to see 👀 God doesn’t show us everything. The Bible says that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen. Just because at times we’re unhappy with how things are going,doesn’t mean that we are headed down hill. It could just mean that GOD is working behind the scenes. We can’t base our lives on what we see 👀 but instead we should pray for God to help us to keep that hope that we had before things seemed to spiral. FAITH has substance, and then it pleases GOD when we are hopeful, it gets his attention. We shouldn’t worry about what we’re seeing, but just know that God is behind the scenes working on something great, we just have to keep the faith.

Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. – Psalm 107:8-9

He Knows

God’s mercy is indescribable, and His tolerance so merciful.
He loves our innocence, and understands our current level of maturity.
Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord
has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself
knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.
PSALM 103:13-14
