Now Faith is the assurance that what we hope for will come about and the certainly that what we cannot see exists. (Hebrews 11:1 ISV) What are you putting your hope in? Are you hoping in the Lord or yourself? Because if your hoping in the Lord and seeking God with all your heart everything that you need will come. But if you are hoping that you can make things happen for yourself you may experience disappointments and you may never get all the blessings that God has in store for your life.
With God we can experience life to its fullest when we have faith in Him because He can and will open doors that stand in our way of achieving our greatest hopes and desires. We donít have to worry about what we will eat and where we will live or what to do about tomorrow for God has already made provisions for our lives. We just have to have faith, just a small mustard seed and seek God and His kingdom and everything for our lives will fall in place.
But it wonít happen when we want it to happen, only in Godís time. I think thatís when we give up on our faith in God, when things donít happen when we want them to happen. Then we get discouraged with God and we think that He has forgotten about us and what we need. But we have to remember that what we ask for canít just happen. There is a process for things to come about in order for the glory of God to be shown through our prayers.
When we submit our prayer request to God He is faithful to deliver and when He does He will be glorified because when God answers our prayers He goes beyond what we want and His Glory will shine through our answered prayers. So keep the faith. Rest and be assured that with just a little faith everything we need will come about but not how we want it or when we need them but when they do come it will be better than you or I could ever imagine.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
