Where is your faith??

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.

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!!

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

Worrying is just a waste of energy

You are uniquely designed to enjoy life to the maximum . Wisdom is simply knowing things to give power to !!.Strength is found in discipline. Your joy is in the Lord!!

At times things don’t go the way we planned , and we are tempted to worry about a lot of things but we need to resist the temptation to worry over things we can’t control. Power comes from submitting every aspect of our life to God and asking for wisdom from him in every situation.

We are in an era where man at large are taking pride in sin. The love of God is no longer in them , they have elevated sin with their wealth . Funny how sin is funded by the modern society ,posing nude is what they are doing to get more followers on social media.

Worry normally stems from comparing our achievements with other people. Thus in trying to achieve many have faltered ,Jesus Christ is coming soon and we must be ready for him.

Let’s not give our power away by worrying . When worry takes over fear prevails . Worry is the very opposite of faith .We are to stand firm on the promises of God and act on his word even under persecution that’s where our power is .

When we understand the power of acting on the promises written in the Bible even under pressure and persecution miracles start happening. Our ability to exercise our authority as co-heirs in the kingdom of God is our strength.

Let God control the situation , when we submit every area of our being to Him the result is always in our favour. Even when people hurt or condemn us we are supposed to resist anger and resentment. We don’t own anyone or anything on this earth we are just ambassadors for God so with this thinking we won’t have anything to worry about for we will understand that God is working in our favour.

Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord , and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord , And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord , Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. Rest in the Lord , and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret— it only causes harm. For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord , They shall inherit the earth.
Psalms 37:1‭-‬9 NKJV

Worry is the misuse of imagination and a thief of joy. In simple terms worry is simply the absence of faith. Once we entertain worry we give the devil the chance to manipulate us.Once you entertain worry ,you reap procrastination and inaction. We are instructed to trust God and to do good always ..

In persecution we are to do good always. There is freedom in knowing that we have God working in our favour at all times. This is not the time to envy sinners anymore , but to win them to Christ.

We are fortunate to be given time in this land of the living and whether we accept this or not how we use that time is very important for one day we will leave earth and we will have to give account to God. Our hospitals are full of people suffering from worry / stress related diseases ,that’s not our portion .

In everything we give praise to God , for wisdom comes from him. No matter what you are facing today give thanks to Him for he will surely give you a way out. He gives wisdom those who ask for it. All you need is wisdom to get out that situation and wisdom is freely available when you kneel down and ask for wisdom in prayer.

Where wisdom reigns there is no room for worry. My people are suffering because of ignorance . Ignorance is the real problem we need to fight by studying the word of God and being in alignment with His purpose here on Earth.

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
James 1:5 NIV

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:7 NIV

In our everyday walk here in the land of the living we are to be always feeding on God’s faithfulness , thus once we align our mindset on feeding on his faithfulness the future is always beaming with hope. There is hope for the lost in Christ Jesus , there is hope for you today if you choose God’s faithfulness over your own understanding .

Every little thing that was exalting itself above God’s faithfulness lost power when your sins were forgiven. In God you are not condemned when he looks at you the blood of Jesus Christ speaks for your life. By the same token of the blood covenant thus we are benefactors of the Abrahamic covenant and if benefactors we have a job to do.

Face whatever that has been worrying you and remind it of God’s faithfulness. Nothing and no one has power to send you in a state of worry . For our God is faithful .

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 NIV

Shalom.
