Morning Meditation – Possessing Faith

“And Jesus answered them, ‘Have faith in God.’” (Mark 11:22)

Faith is so frustrating!  When am I going to see results?

Well…faith is not a button you push, and “BAM,” your miracle shows up.  It’s not a prayer that leads to the supernatural.  True Biblical faith gives way to a lifestyle—it’s a heartfelt trust that all things are in the Father’s hands even before we ask for the miracle.   Faith believes at the outset that Jesus has a way for us to walk that will produce what is ultimately the best.

“Having faith,” then, is simply creating an atmosphere of belief around our daily walk and throughout our everyday conversation.  To speak of what God is doing.  To point to the possibilities.  In that kind of atmosphere, things begin to miraculously shift—WE change—the external becomes what the internal declares.

So, don’t look for a miracle to exercise your faith—for those are just fleeting moments.  See what God is doing, and then the entirety of your life will conform to that miracle.

    Pastor, thank you!!! We got much better news from the infectious disease doctor we just finished seeing. I can even take her out for 4 hours and she’s so excited to come to her apartment. It looks like she can come home before the new year. One day at a time!

    Went to the surgeon today with my mom and the news and concern he voiced are not good. I am in this thing right now and I can’t seem to see what our Lord is doing. I’m like in a fog….what is the outcome? I cry and cry like a baby but the anchor to my soul is in this one truth, God is good! I trust in what He has already spoken about my mom and my story, that He does not change, falter, or fail us!

    1. This is so true, Barbara…God is good, no matter what. I’m so sorry that you have to go through all of this with your mom. Sometimes there are no words that can make us feel better…but always know, you are not alone. We’ll be praying for you!
