There are a lot of things that could have shaken your faith over the last 24+ months - global pandemic, rising interest rates, astronomical gas prices, and even loss. I get it. We all get it. But our faith is not built on the circumstances around us, but the Lord who is over us!
Faith stands firm while the world is crumbling!
Faith remains strong when others get weak!
Faith keeps growing as soon as you start sowing!
Faith. What is this indispensable ingredient? It is simply defined in Hebrews 11:1: "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." Basically, the writer of Hebrews is saying, Faith is HOPE and VISION. It is the hope in the invisible God who gives us eyes to see!
Faith turns failure into fertilizer! ~Steven Furtick
I am a person of faith! I follow people of faith! I have a hard time rolling with anti-faith people. It is important to surround yourself with people who are going to build you up, not bring you down. "I don't like hyper-faith people." I hear ya, but I don't like anti-faith people! I rather live in the valley of hope than the mountain of despair! There are more anti-faith people in the world than hyper-faith people!
You see, if the Bible does not just describe faith - it prescribes it! Listen to what the Bible prescribes, "And it is impossible to please God without faith," (Hebrews 11:6). In other words, faith is a pre-requisite to bringing God pleasure! Faith is a required!
Faith is taking the first step when you don't see the whole staircase. ~Martin Luther King Jr
I am not hyper-faith or anti-faith. Choose to be Biblical faith. In other words, if the Bible promises it I can receive it! Don't let people talk you out of believing. Keep believing. Keep hoping. Keep trusting.
Let your faith rise higher than your doubts, larger than the haters, and bigger than you could ever imagine. This is not the time to shrink back, but to advance after the blessings of God.
Let them call you crazy! Let them believe you lost it! They didn't create your destiny and they cannot cancel. Who are the "they" anyway?
RAISE YOUR FAITH!!!
