In today’s blog, I am sharing “A Word, A Song and A Laugh” to encourage you in the basics of your faith.
“He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.”
God loves faith! Over and over, the Bible tells us that God is pleased when we have faith in Him and His Word — that’s because He knows the blessings that come into our lives through faith! God wants His children to live by faith. Faith gives substance to the things we hope for. Faith is the believers secret weapon and supernatural advantage!
So, what is faith? Simply put: faith is taking God at His Word.
Faith is being fully convinced that God is able to do whatever He promises!
What has God promised you? Can you be specific? Do you have a Scripture and verse? When did God speak this promise to your heart?
Are you fully convinced that God is able to do whatever He promised?
If you are fully convinced, what do you do? Do what Abraham did and “give glory to God.” Abraham never weakened in his faith, he grew stronger and continued to thank and praise God. Through his faith (and patience), he inherited the promise!
“No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God, fully satisfied and assured that God was able and mighty to keep His word and to do what He had promised.” Romans 4:20-21, AMPC
If you aren’t convinced, what do you do? Get more faith until you are fully persuaded. Faith only comes one way — through hearing God’s Word. The more we search God’s Word for His promises, the more He speaks to us and as His Word comes to our heart, so too - faith comes! Don’t let doubt or indifference keep you from experiencing God’s promises — add to your faith until you are fully convinced of God’s ability to fulfill His promises to YOU!
“So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.” Romans 10:17, NLT
I hope you’ll review God’s promises to you and once you’re fully convinced God is able to do whatever He’s promised — give Him glory and watch what happens!
