Are you getting overwhelmed by the challenges you are facing now ? This is not the season to allow fear and doubt to cripple us , deliverance is here!!
The Egyptians you see today ,you shall not see them anymore for Canaan is calling come along let’s cross the Red sea . These are not the days to focus more on what we lack but to focus on God the author and finisher of our faith.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1 KJV
Faith is knowing where you are going and taking action to reach there. Faith assures us of things which are hidden from the naked eye. Faith makes you to envision the impossible as possible.By faith you can challenge your Goliath to a fight even when all odds are against you.
Faith assures us of things which are hidden from the naked eye.#apostoliclife
Faith activates your body into action , whilst fear cripples your mind. Faith makes your actions to be in alignment with your ultimate purpose here on earth . With faith your mind automatically nullifies negative feedback or suggestions from your peers .
Faith opens your mind to create the impossible . Without faith it is impossible to please God. So basically in this land of the living faith is imperative . By faith the sick are healed and the poor get rich so there is no reason to have doubt in the body of Christ.
Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.
Luke 8:22-25 KJV
Jesus’ disciples in this situation were convinced they would drown and die ,they were scared and desperate whilst Jesus Christ was fast asleep. Their translation of the raging waters was death by drowning ,how regularly have we seen the end of our careers or marriages with our own very eyes .
Many a times we have translated sickness as death . At times we had sleepless nights due to unpaid bills. Our children at times drive us to madness with their disobedience but what does the Bible say?
When businesses are crumbling down most people commit suicide. Life is not supposed to be easy but we are supposed to be stronger than our challenges. When nothing makes sense and we have lost everything do we look to Jesus or start crying like orphans.
An orphan mentality says no one will assist me but we are of God so when the going gets tough we call upon Jesus Christ. Yes the situation is critical and many people have perished in similar situations but we are to call upon Jesus Christ for help .
When there seems to be no solution for your problems try Jesus Christ. In these last days when everyone is living in fear of a world war 3 we need Jesus Christ. In this era where no one values marriage anymore ,for your marriage to last a lifetime you need Jesus Christ.
In this trying times where men are marrying men and women marrying women we need Jesus Christ to take control of our children so they won’t follow after such abominations. We need Jesus Christ now more than ever when new diseases are being discovered everyday.
Jesus said to his disciples ,”Where is your faith?” .The boat was about to sink but he asked such a question that means where your faith is really affects the results you get.In his response we can tell that faith really was the issue and not the storm.
What you see in any situation affects the outcome you get . Jesus Christ here referred to positive faith. The disciples had negative faith , negative faith sees the worst in every situation and blocks miracles from happening.
What do you see when you loose your job? The question is on what you see when things go wrong . There is a big difference in positive and negative faith. Negative faith brings defeat while positive faith brings success.
Where is your faith ,Jesus asked. He was not impressed with his disciples having faith in the ship drowning and their demise He wanted them to see God’s faithfulness in times of trouble. Jesus arose and rebuked the storm and it calmed down
The problem is not that God is not answering prayers but the issue is we have faith in wrong things. Man has chosen to put his faith properties and government instead of trusting in God thus we living in constant fear of the unknown . Our news broadcast channels are now the very sources of fear.
Wives are choosing to have their faith in their husbands instead of putting their trust in God and many families are broken. Where is your faith ? Disciples had too much faith on the boat the moment they noticed their boat couldn’t stand the storm they were shattered.
What you base your faith on determines the power you posses!!#apostoliclife
When the economy crumbles ,what do you see? This is the season to put our trust in God. It’s not too late to invite Jesus Christ in your life. Whilst the world is marketing ideas on self sufficiency and self confidence we need to have full confidence in Jesus Christ.
By the authority of his voice the storm calmed down. Make a decision today to give Jesus Christ full authority over every aspect of your life today. In this season we need to have Jesus in our boats. His presence in our midst can really be the difference between life and death..
Join us today let’s carry our cross and follow Jesus Christ .In this season it only make sense to be under His guidance and support
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Matthew 28:18 NIV
