“If you can see the invisible, you can do the impossible”. I heard one of my favorite pastors say this the other day and I couldn’t help but smile. What Jentezen Franklin was talking about was the true essence of faith. You probably have noticed by now that most of my posts are centralized on this one thing that is alive in the hearts of many today, which is faith. It is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)
Sometimes we feel like we need all this elaborate training, knowledge, or even background when, faith is meant to be more than a formality. Faith is patience with mystery and, the opposite of that is certainty. You usually don’t stretch yourself to a territory that enables the faith that you need for the challenge you are going to face because, it is uncomfortable. Since we have such a situational view of God, most of our lives are spent trying to fix that situation.
Faith ALWAYS has an objective. It’s a lifestyle thing!
What is your objective?
What is your faith for?
Faith will command you to do what you convinced yourself that you are not or that you are unable to do. What simple thing can you do that will make a huge difference in your life? Ultimately, this is a way of seeing things differently. Declare that “You are more than a conqueror!, You fix your eyes on the author and perfecter of faith!, You praise him regardless of the outcome!!!”
God did not give you faith to be complacent with your dysfunction. It is when you respond to His calling without putting an emphasis on yourself, that you are able to be restored.
