I HEARD A VOICE TODAY
DOING THE RIGHT THING TAKES EFFORT!
I often hear you say, "Why God why? Why aren't they being dealt with?"
You get annoyed when you have to wait while someone else gets what you've been praying for? Faith is a muscle. Just like a muscle, it won't get stronger unless you use it. Hope is not wishing, it's releasing faith and taking action in the meantime. Faith helps you remain stable and strong no matter what is going on.
If you compromise in little things then you will compromise in big things. Do you always put away your grocery cart where it belongs? Do you pick up trash when you see it? If the cashier gives you the wrong change do you always return it? I see it all and those little things speak to your character just like the big things do.
Hebrews 11: 1-40 ....speaks to faith.
...."is the assurance of the things we hope for, being the proof of the things we do not see..."
...."so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible."
...."without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him."
...."by faith Noah, ....took heed and diligently and reverently constructed and prepared an ark..."
...."by faith Abraham, ....when forth to a place.....he did not know....."
...."of faith also Sarah herself received physical power to conceive a child...."
...."by faith Abraham, ....had already brought Isaac for an offering...."
...."by faith Joseph, .... gave instructions concerning the burial of his own bones."
...."by faith Moses, .... was kept concealed....and they were not overawed or terrified by the king..."
...."by faith Moses, .... refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter....because he preferred to share the shame of of the people of God than to have the fleeting enjoyment of a sinful life."
...."by faith the people crossed the Red Sea..."
...."by faith the walls of Jericho fell down...."
...."by faith Rahab, .... was not destroyed along with those who refused to believe and obey..."
Hebrews 11:40 "...Because God had us in mind and had something better and great in view for us..."
Faith is not affected by time. You need to have faith no matter how long or even if you never receive what you am asking Me for. You need to be happy with or without what you are praying for. Maybe it's not in MY PLAN for you. You don't need to dwell on why. You don't need to understand why? This alone can give you peace, knowing you can hand it all over to Me and I will deal with it.
Hebrews 11:1 ...."faith in the assurance of things we hope for, being proof of the things we do not see and the conviction of the reality (faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses)."
Fear causes you to hold back and give what is comfortable, faith causes you to give your very best. Faith takes you through the times when you don't get what you want, for I will take care of you.
