So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith-Ephesians 3:17 NIV
Faith is like gathering up nuts because Old Man Winter is near; faith is like pursuing a degree because you want to make an impact and finally faith is like changing the batteries in all of the flashlights because hurricane season will be here faster than you realize. Now I know that you may be thinking what is the correlation between all of these things and faith. Well just hold on and I'll break it down for you.
Gathering nuts because Old Man Winter is approaching means collecting faith so that it can be used in cold hard times. Pursing a degree because you want to make an impact means chasing after faith so that your life will be an example to someone else in their time of need. Changing the batteries in all of the flashlights because hurricane season will be knocking at your door means exchanging your weak faith for even stronger faith so that you aren't caught off guard when trials and tribulations come. Or in other words you're collecting faith now so that you can use it later.
The Lord rewards people who are faithful-1 Samuel 26:23 CEV
