For every word God speaks is sure and every promise pure. His truth is tested, found to be flawless, and ever faithful. It’s as pure as silver refined seven times in a crucible of clay. Psalm 12:6 Passion Translation
I ran across this statement made by Bill Winston a few years ago, “When you’re really in faith, you don’t posess it, it posesses you.”
You see my friends, I believe that every Word that God spoke is more sure and true than anything I see in this natural realm. For what we see is subject to change, but every Word that comes out of the mouth of God cannot and will not change.
That is why you won’t see me wringing my hands in worry or fretting about what things look like. I have a covenant promise with the One who cannot break His covenant promises. He constantly watches over His Word to perform it, so why should I worry. He said He would supply all my needs according to HIS riches. Not through a stimulus check or food stamps or even unemployment.
Having faith in God means trusting in what your eyes can’t see yet. It becomes the very foundation you think on and becomes all you talk about. People begin to worry that you’ve lost touch with reality and they’re right, because you’ve touched a truth that’s set you free and its consumed you. You’re no longer moved by what you feel, your faith has made your situation move.
Let me say that again so that it gets down deep inside of you: Your faith has made your situation move. That’s what Jesus referred to in Mark 11:22-24
Jesus replied, “Let the faith of God be in you! Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt,‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done. This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—believe that you have received it and it will be yours.”
This is how I want to live my life. It’s not faith when I can get it myself. It’s faith when there’s not a snowballs chance in hell it will happen unless God intervenes. It’s faith when every fiber of my being remembers what the Word says and chooses His way over the natural way. It’s facing a formidable foe with only one stone, knowing God will cause it to bring it down to a level where I can chop it’s head off.
Do you want that kind of faith? It requires complete trust in God. You can’t do that if you don’t have relationship with Him. You can’t do that if you don’t know your covenant. There will always be an enemy throwing ‘what if’s’ in your mind and you must be able to recognize him and give him corrected information.
Feast on that this Friday and I’ll see you next week!
