Faith, the eternal enigma. Without it we cannot please God. What is faith; how much is enough faith; what should we have faith for? We all have these questions as we live in a material visible world, where what we know, what we can see, what we can touch, seems to have greater value then what is unseen.
Faith is anchored in God’s word and promises; the credibility of His word is linked to his nature and our gaining faith is not based on understanding but on relationship with Jesus Christ. Learning to come before Him in awe, knowing we are accepted by Him, is vital to great faith. Faith is the result of His nature having an impact on the heart and mind of the believer.
Faith is not intellectual in nature, The Bible says, “by faith we understand….” (Hebrews 11:3). It’s not the other way around. How would your thinking change if nothing were impossible, if there were no regrets haunting you from the past, if you had unlimited resources to accomplish all that is before you? Faith affects human reasoning by removing the boundaries and obstacles we have become accustomed to, instead allowing our hearts to see the things that we could not see without God’s help. It is time to let faith have its full effect on our hearts and minds. Let’s just see what might be possible in our lifetime as we devote ourselves to Him.
