Following His lead

follow

To me the central number one most important thing that a Christian can do after giving their lives to Jesus is to live out a life of faith. To allow God to direct their steps.

The Bible tells us in Romans 12:3 that God has given each of us a measure of faith.

Hebrews 11:1 remind us that that faith that God gave is not for “pie-in-the sky,-by-and-by” but for now, right now.

 It is for the right now when your child is wandering and you don’t know how to get them back. It is for the right now when you don’t have the money to pay the light bill. It is for when you’re not sure what you’re going to do with your life because everything seems to be crumbling around you.

 Choose to really live out your faith in God right now.

Way too often I’m noticed that mature Christians have not developed this gift God has given them. They’ve developed other gifts such as kindness, gentleness, self-control, and meekness. Yet, they have put off really using this gift of faith because it’s hard.

I get that, because I did the same thing. I get that it’s easy to feel like “one day I’ll feel like really trusting God. But until then I will run my own show.”

It’s easy to believe that one day trusting God with the hard stuff won’t be scary.

I’m not gonna lie, it is going to be scary. But you’ll have God, the God of the universe, leading you and guiding you all the way.

As you follow God’s leading your life, you’ll be amazed at the doors He can open for you. You’ll be amazed at how he uses you to reach others when you thought you had nothing to give them. You’ll be amazed at what He will do with your gift that He gave you. Your faith.

Life is short. Don’t waste any of it.

Pray with me.

Father God

I come to you humbly and ask that you help me to live out the life of faith that you’ve called me to live. Help me to hear your voice daily and to follow your lead. I realize that this life is not mine to live. It belongs to you, to live for your glory. Help me to do that.

In Jesus name Amen.

When Your future is unkown

All of us, even the most skilled, the most organized among us,

face a future that is unknown.

To many of us worry about it.

If we are Christian we can say with confidence

“My future may be unknown,

But my God is not!”

Instead of worrying, praise God that He will bring you through.

Do not allow what you “see” in the natural to dictate your feelings or actions.

Rest in what you KNOW about God.

Rest in the truth of who you KNOW Him to be.

As Heb 11:1 (Emphasis Mine)says 

FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. (AMP).

Faith is an action word. It is a now thing. We are to be convinced that God is about to come through.

If you are going through a struggle  and your faith is week

Ask God to strengthen your faith.

Ask God to give you peace, and hope, and an assurance of a the best possible outcome.

He will do so.

And when the doubts start to rise

run back to Him again

He will always be there (even when silent).

If you want a great faith

This is where you get it

Press on.
