“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV
Faith plays a very important part in our daily walk with Christ. Like it says in the verse above “But without faith it is impossible to please Him”. Like some of use going to the gym to train our bodies to lose weight and gain muscles. It’s also the same with our faith system we need to train our faith every day to lose unnecessary weight and build more of those spiritual muscles.
But to do this we will need to find out what faith is. Well there is two ways of finding what faith is and we can find that in the Dictionary and in the bible.
Dictionary definition of faith is: “Complete trust or confidence in someone or something”
Bible definition of faith is: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 NKJV
These two definitions are pretty much self-explanatory. But I will put it this way; “To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary.”
“So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 NKJV
Just as Jesus said having faith just as small as a mustard seed is enough faith to move a mountain. So imagine having faith as big as a mountain, or an elephant, or a tank or as big as the Eiffel Tower. You get what I mean.
We need faith in our lives especially in our walk with God. But personally I know this and I know you all have experienced this as well; We can also lose faith.
We can lose faith when things don't turn out the way we want it or when we experience some of life's monumental failures. Personally speaking when this happens to me I tend to overthink many negative things; thinking a load of unnecessary stuff questioning life itself, but that is just for that moment. But I want you to notice what I’m about to say next. I start reading my bible; reading verses that were a reminder.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?' Psalms 118:6 NKJV
'Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.' Isaiah 41:10 NKJV
'For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.' Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
Above are some example verses that I use to get my faith back on track. There are many ways to build your faith and even ways to get back on track after losing some faith. Praise and Worshiping in my car on my way to work is one of the many examples I would be singing to Tasha Cobbs and trying to bust some moves while all the other drivers are just sitting there thinking I must be high lol. But just by doing that nearly every day my faith keeps growing and will continue to grow.
I want to leave you with this keep growing, keep praising God, keep trusting Him, when life gets hard be patient and trust in his timing; and you will see the deliverance God will bring into your life.
'They will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you,” says the Lord , “to deliver you.”' Jeremiah 1:19 NKJV
