Living by Faith
Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen."
No matter who you are, what you do, what you have done, or the circumstances you are currently experiencing in your life, the foundation of your walk with God must be your faith. Faith is the rock that keeps you grounded during the storms that life is definitely going to bring, and it is Living By Faith that vaults you into God's purpose and plan for your life. There can be no blessings, neither can you BE a blessing if you are not Living By Faith.
Living by Faith is like developing a muscle, you have to work it each and every day. The more you step out on faith the stronger your walk with God becomes. Often times when you are going through a difficult situation people will tell you to, "Just have faith," and in your mind you think, "I am just supposed to believe that some way, somehow things will just work themselves out for my benefit?" Yes, that is what faith is. Faith is believing in something when you cannot see it with your natural eyes. Faith is a contradiction to everything we see and experience in the 'earthly realm'. Faith goes counter to our five senses and our circumstances. Remember, God says, what’s IMPOSSIBLE with man is POSSIBLE with God. In other words, God orchestrates impossible situations in our lives that are beyond our ability to ‘fix’ them, and beyond our ability to even understand …………….. so that HE CAN BE WHO HE IS;
EL SHADDAI (The ALL SUFFICIENT ONE).
Living by Faith is believing that God has a plan for your life and he will lead and guide you accordingly. Which means that when bad or unexpected things happen in your life you do not have to worry because you have a relationship with God. Your faith is the comfort in knowing that whatever it is that is impeding your progression forward God will move you through it, and you will be stronger and wiser when you get through.
Faith is the fruit of the spirit that stares fear in the face and says I have a God that can deliver me, he does not fail and he is always with me. Stepping out on faith is a concept that highlights your "walk with God." Your walk with God consists of several steps in a particular direction that are pre-ordained by the Father Himself.
Living by faith is continuing to walk in the direction that God is guiding you in even if you do not know where you are going or agree with the direction that God has is taking you. You know the direction God has placed on your life because you have a relationship with God, and that comes from continually communicating with him in prayer and meditation.
When you decide to live by faith and believe God completely then blessing and favor will flow over and through your life because you are living a life guided by HIS Divine Enablement. And here’s more assurance for you……”If we are faithless, He remains faithful; for He cannot deny Himself”.
SO REST, GOD’S GOT IT.
