"This life I now live I live by faith in the Son of God…"
“This life I now live I live by faith in the Son of God…” Galatians 2:20
If there was ever a time to live by faith it’s now! All around us are circumstances and situations that can be overwhelming and cause discouragement, fear and a desire to give up. In the middle of all this, Jesus encourages us to have faith… believe Him, trust Him… that no matter what you see, Jesus is working out His will and ways and continues to hear your prayers. Faith is a powerful force in the life of a believer… it can truly move mountains.
Faith will always overcome fear. Upon the news that his daughter died, Jesus told Jairus not to fear but to believe… to believe that Jesus is not done yet and that it’s not over till He says its’ over!
Faith should determine your choices. Moses chose the heat of the desert rather than the riches of Egypt and lived a life filled with purpose touching millions of lives. Whatever you do… choose to do it by faith. Especially in our marriages, some of us need to choose to love … by faith.
Faith holds on to the vision. Moses had a calling, a vision from God. In the hardest and darkest time, his faith held on to the vision and he moved forward. What vision, purpose, plan or dream did God give you? Stay in faith no matter what and He will bring it to pass.
Faith causes us to depend on God. When the blood was applied to the doorposts of the homes as God decreed through Moses, there was nothing they can do but to absolutely depend on the blood, applied through faith and obedience, to save them. God wants you to depend on Him through faith, right now!
And faith always overcomes the impossible! As Moses stretched out that rod before the Red Sea, through faith, what seemed so unimaginable… so far from ever coming to be… truly happened because of God’s power accessed through faith. Is God asking you to stretch out your faith today? If He is… He’s about to do something great!
