In your life’s equation, is God a major part of it? If one's Faith is not limited by logic then God must be.
Faith is the vibrant factor in spiritual wisdom, as it is through faith that we understand. The invisible is made visible. In the Bible, God is presented but not argued or explained because God wants us to accept him by faith. If we believe, we become wise. When in faith, we are not expected to prove to a skeptic that there is a God. The skeptic should prove to himself that there is no God. Everyone has faith in their heart. The faith of God’s existence and the faith of God’s inexistence.
Scientists study phenomenon now existing and it takes less faith to believe that nobody times nothing equals everything. That’s what they believe. The fool that says in his heart there is no God. God is the supreme fact and the man who denies it is the supreme fool. Faith is not the evidence of reason, it is beyond reason. The scientists who make it their life’s mission to try to prove God doesn’t exist, is like a pianist trying to take a piano apart to find the notes he plays.
Faith is the stronghold of spiritual wisdom. God does not have an obligation to prove himself to you to make you believe, faith is the heart’s response to the character of God.
Jesus came from heaven in a very non-descript and very ordinary way. When we see Jesus, there is no beauty that we would make us desire him. Jesus doesn’t look like what is presented to us with the flowing robes, hair flowing and a halo above his head. If Jesus looked spectacular, why did Judas have to point him out to the soldiers? Jesus was not clothed in golden robes, ornamented with jewels, lived in a palace much like a king. But there was in Him all of the glory, serenity, dignity, majesty, purity and character of God in human flesh, not from outward extravagance but with miracles, they were not publicity stunts. He didn’t want that kind of fellowship. He wants to be known for what he was.
Why did he come as he did? Because he wanted us to learn faith because He knew without faith, it is impossible to please God. He could buy us, he could bribe us, he could do whatever he wants, but he doesn’t want that.
When your eye is right, it responds to light. When your ear is right is responds to sound, when your heart is right it responds to God and that response is FAITH. The bible says beware of you who does not believe. Unbelief does not come out of your brain in thinking, it comes out of the heart. Faith honors God and vice versa.
Faith is the dynamic of spiritual wealth. Hebrews 11:6 God rewards to those who seek him. Be it unto you according to your faith, not fame, not feeling, future, fortune, or fate. Faith is the medium of exchange in the kingdom of heaven. If you pray without faith, you don’t get an answer. You have to believe that you receive what you desire which i9s in line with His will and you will receive them. Pray and believe you will receive, pray in doubt you will do without.
How spiritually worthy are you? How much reserve do you have? It is all according to your faith.
Life is a journey. We are headed somewhere, it is not a casual journey it is a race (Heb 12:1-2). Jesus is the author and finisher of our fate.
Life has a goal. Faith helps us find that goal which is the will of God. The destination of faith is to find, follow and finish the will of God. That’s what faith is all about. How do we do that? We need to be motivated by the saints around us. You can’t see them but the champions of faith is in the ring of honor, they are watching us on the field, they are cheering us on, “Go, go, go!!!”
We are to be separated by the shackles of sin that weigh us down. Remember, when we ask God to forgive us, He does immediately, and our sins are forgotten as far as the east is from the west. We no longer need to carry extra weight and it is crucial to lay it aside. When you are in a race, you shed as much clothing as you can to be as light and as fast as you can be in order to win. We need to train ourselves to shed those sins that have been forgiven and forgotten by God, the only one who knows how to do both.
We need to strive to be liberated by the snares beneath us. Sins are constricting, we wrestle with it for a long time, and trips us up. Ask God what it is, where you keep falling and lay it aside. Come to grips with it, be done with it. The great enemy of faith is sin. You have dirty rotten sin, not intellectual problems. If your heart is right, if you are having trouble with faith, try repentance. Repentance comes before faith, get your heart right, and you will be surprised how the fruits of faith will grow when you get the sin out of your life.
Is holding on to sin worth God not answering your prayer? Is it worth a right relationship with God, or being a mighty power for God? NO! Lay it aside, be done with it!
We are to be energized for the race ahead. It means determination, a course from God for you. Be dedicated to the savior above us. Look upon Jesus, the author and finisher of your fate.
It’s not great faith in God that we need, it is faith in a Great God! Do you know what faith is? It is the by product of looking onto Jesus, the Alpha and Omega, the fire and the coach that makes us run, put your eyes on Him! He is the bridge through faith that will guide you to an eternal life of bliss. Look to Jesus, fall in love with Him, study him, you find him in the word. Live by faith. You can exist without faith but you can never live without it. Jesus said I have come so you can have life.
Till the next rant…. LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
