Faith

Hebrews 11:6, NIV
“Without faith it is impossible to please God.”

Faith is a gift of God; if anyone needs faith let him ask of God. How full is your faith tank? We must have an inflow of the life of the Spirit of God manifest in us to live by faith. Everything in us prefers to walk by sight. ‘When I have the resource I will move’ we say. That is walking by sight. If we try and fix it ourselves we will find that the power of God diminishes.

God has a greater plan for us in our future than we have ever dreamed of in our past. It is God’s delight to make possible for us what seems right now to be impossible. ‘Jesus replied, “What is impossible with men is possible with God(Luke 18:27). Through faith all those things that have been obscured or hidden from us become clear. God wants us to implicitly trust Him by faith so that we may subdue kingdoms and work for righteousness.

True faith originates in the core of our saved being. We aren’t saved by mental agreement to certain statements or warm emotions, but by faith. ‘For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no-one can boast’ (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Personal faith deeply believes that God will do as He says. Faith produces words of agreement. If God has said it then it cannot fail. If we believe: ‘For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken to us by the glory of God’ (2 Corinthians 1:20). GOD HAS PROMISED ME.

Today allow God to take absolute charge of the whole of your life and your circumstances. The alternative is that the cares of this world will blind your eyes to living by faith God’s way and you’ll not be able to see God’s truth.

What is that ‘impossible’ mountain in your life? Can you start to believe by faith today that nothing, absolutely nothing, is impossible with God? If so, then bow your head now, hand over to God that ‘impossible situation’ and trust Him by faith.

Prayer: Dear Lord God, would You come and fill my empty faith tank. I desire today to walk by faith and not by sight, to trust You where I cannot see. I put my seemingly impossible situation of… on open palms to You. I know that nothing is impossible for You. I’m asking in the name of Jesus that You will hear my prayer. Give me Your peace that transcends my circumstances, that I may rest expectantly in You throughout today. Amen.

Hope from the Wreckage

Hebrews 2:3-4, NIV
“How shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.”

I watched as two exhausted survivors were plucked from the wreckage of the Japanese earthquake and lifted into a rescue helicopter, nine days after the Japanese tsunami had hit and destroyed their town. For them, it was an absolute miracle. For the rescue workers it was a pin-prick of joy in the midst of their gruesome work of extracting the dead from the wreckage of their community.

As I watched joy being expressed, as these two people were lifted to safety, I suddenly realised that this was a picture of the great joy the Father must experience, when one of His precious children comes to Him and is lifted to safety from the morass of human rebellion and rejection of Him and His love, through what His Son did for them on the cross.

Headline after headline this past week has only confirmed the picture of a world that is suffering the consequences of tsunami-like rebellion and devastation. For close on two thousand years the warnings that God has sounded have been largely ignored. The pride of man continues to tell Creator God that he has a better way and ignores the truth of God’s Word!

In a news report on the Libyan situation, one senior general referred to the Security Council of the United Nations as the highest authority there is in this world! This is both a very true and an arrogantly false statement at the same time. Humanly speaking, when the United Nations act together, they are declaring themselves as the ultimate world authority. But they conveniently forget what Jesus said at the end of His time on Earth, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” (Matthew 28:18). I’m so relieved that ultimate authority really is in His hands and not the hands of man!

Most of the people who were fortunate enough to hear the tsunami warnings in Japan, and flee for their lives without turning back for anything, reached the safety of higher ground. But tragically the majority of those who, for whatever reason, chose to ignore the warnings or couldn’t escape from their particular situation, perished as the giant wave annihilated so many communities. It’s dangerous to ignore such warnings.

I am reminded of those poignant words from the Scripture for today, which ask the question, “How shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation?” (Hebrews 2:3). The good news is that there is always hope for those who look to Him – no matter how terrible anyone’s personal situation may be. We don’t need a helicopter to lift us out of the wreckage of life, but we do need to humble ourselves before Him and, as the Scripture says, “He will lift us up” (James 4:10).

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, that You have already provided a means of escape, for all who come to You, from the sin and rebellion of mankind. Help me, Lord, to always to be aware of the needs of others to also know the truth, and be willing to point them to the only One who can rescue them from the mess of this fallen world. In Jesus Name, Amen.
