Faith is . . .

Postby jo555 » Tue Jun 03, 2014 11:53 pm

I was at one of my favorite stores the other day (Kirklands) and on a picture it said something regarding faith not so much in knowing God can, but that God will.

Although I believe it is both, I found it interesting as I have always said that where I lacked in faith wasn't so much knowing God can because I know He can do anything, but in not knowing if He wills it.

Then, I was watching Charles Stanley the other day who made a comment about faith and God's will along similar lines.

Anyway, I like details . . . break down what is going on because if I can identify it, I can take it to the Lord to help me in that department.

Anyone else ever consider where their lack of faith may be coming from?
Would it be in the "God willing it" department?

Faith is believing what we can't see until we can see it.

Amen. Scripturally true too. Thank you much LeAnn.

Maybe I should be asking, "Where do you find doubt as to whether God will do something or not?

Is it not believing He can? Or not believing He will? Or not knowing his will? Or what?"

I have been musing over this one, considering the scripture that says we can know God's will by renewing our minds with his Word.

I do believe God wants everyone healed, but our road to healing may require something of us first (some work in another area). Or maybe we are having a Job moment (not always about us).

And, doesn't mean everyone will be healed for whatever reason, but I believe overall God would like to see everyone healed in Christ.

So, we need to know his will.
We need insight as to what needs to be addressed as He reveals.
Then, wait for his timing.

Some may not need all this . . . but for someone like me it can help to break it down.
