Faith in What?
Faith. Faith is so important to having a relationship in Jesus. After all, you can’t have a relationship with Jesus without having faith, right? Why? Because faith is having the assurance about what you don’t see. So becoming a Christian is having faith in Jesus, even when you can’t see him.
But what happens after that? What happens when you accept Jesus but are now believing for something. Maybe, like myself, you are believing for babies. I currently have faith that I will become a mother even though nothing in the natural dictates that will happen. But that is where things get tricky. What am I putting my faith in? What are you putting your faith in? It’s so important to have faith, but you can have all the faith in the world and it be in the wrong thing.
As you believe for a husband is your faith in the last date you had, the boyfriend you are currently with, the number of guys who are pursuing you or is it in God?
As you believe for a baby is your faith in what the doctor’s have told you, the vitamins you are taking, the IVF procedure you are doing, your ovulation kit or is it in God?
As you believe to be healed from your recent health diagnosis is your faith in the doctor’s report, the statistics on google, your symptoms and how you feel or is it in God?
As you believe to make ends meet financially is your faith in your checking account, the job you are looking for or is it in God?
As you believe for your marriage to be restored is your faith in your emotions, your own pride, the last thing your spouse said or is it in God?
What or who is your faith in? Make sure it’s always in God. How do you know? Well do a heart check. What are you believing more? The seen? The facts? The reality? Or are you believe the Word? When you faith is in God, you won’t be rattled by the trials that come your way. You won’t doubt just because the doctors told you that you will have cancer forever, just because you are 40 and still not married or just because you got another negative pregnancy test. When you have faith in God, your faith isn’t dependent on your circumstances around you, it’s dependent on the very character of who God is.
Put your hope, faith and trust in the One who has all the answers, who can change your impossible situation, who can answer your prayer and who can heal you from all sickness and disease. Faith in other people or things will leave you hurting and disappointed, but faith in God? It can change everything.
