As Christians we know that Faith is believing in things not yet seen. Following Jesus requires us to have a faith in order to grow in him. The bible says without faith, it is impossible to please God. It says he is the author and finisher of our faith in Hebrews 12:2 and Ephesians 4:5 says one Lord, one faith, one baptism. Romans 1:17 says, for in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” We must walk by faith or be a Faith Walker.
Sometimes we put more Faith in ourselves or others than we do in Jesus. Jesus said he would never leave us nor forsake us, so why do we worry to the point of making ourselves physically sick? I believe this comes from our Faith being weak. I believe our Faith is weak when we don’t spend time in God’s word and in prayer. I believe you have to spend time in his presence to truly know him and have faith in him. We have more faith in our friends and family than we do God sometimes because we spend time with them, we know them, and trust them.
If you read the Old and New Testament you see the faith God’s people had over and over. They would give up everything to follow him. They believed and trusted him to provide all their needs and even when things were going bad they kept their faith. When they were being beaten or stoned they kept their eyes on Jesus and stood strong in their faith. They knew their story didn’t end on this earth but that their glory was in heaven with their savior.
Where’s our faith? When things get a little rough in our lives we start questioning God’s ability, we don’t stand strong in our faith and know that God is going to take care of us. I pray today to have the strength and courage to follow Jesus the way he intended. I pray that I become the Faith Walker that he wants me to be.
Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great day in Jesus Christ.
