Building Faith

I have been seeing many things about faith lately.  The one I saw today...that I liked most...says this...

Faith in GOD changes everything!

Isn't that just so true?!  Without faith what do we have?  Depending on what you need to have faith for...what comes to my mind first is fear...we have fear!  But if you have faith...and your faith is in GOD...your whole outlook will change.  Now...before you start thinking I have got this faith thing down let me say this...

My faith can wane a lot at times...then there are other times when I have some "intense" faith!  Now those are the times I live for.  When problems and trials seem to "rain" into my life and it's okay...because I have in GOD!  When you let GOD...and faith in GOD...rule in your life you have a lot less fear.  So what is the first thing you need to conquer when you are going through trials?  Well...I read this today as well...

The first crisis you must conquer in the storm is fear.  The Word says "Fear Not".  

So I looked up this scripture...

Isaiah 41:10
Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

It's true.  If you stay in the matter how bad your storm is...your faith gets bigger and your will go away!  It may still creep back in now and again but that's because satan is always there...jabbing and punching...telling you that GOD doesn't really care and things are much worse than you ever dreamed they could be.  That's when you tell satan..."Just get away cuz you really don't know what you're talking about!  I am a child of GOD and He loves me."  In fact we know that GOD has got us and we have nothing to fear!!  Why...because as we all know...GOD is faithful!!

I want to tell you that at times you may really have to work at having enough faith to know...beyond a shadow of a doubt...that GOD's got you and there is no need for any fear.  At least I have to at times.  In fact...we can consider this post a faith building post...because this is a trial filled night...which serves as a reminder that...GOD's got it and HE has me and you!

Romans 10:17
So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself).

Isaiah 40:31
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
    They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
    They will walk and not faint.

"until we see JESUS...face to face"

  1. Hi, how are you?

    Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who has created these things, that brings out their host by number: he calls them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one fails. Why say you, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God? (Isaiah 40:27,27)
