Do you find yourself getting caught up in your day to day world of the five senses? Your eyes are set on what you can make, who you can talk to, the food in front of you. Have you missed out on a whole realm that is happening right under your nose? God is on the move. The spirit realm is alive and active. Want to see it? Read more...
If you decide to avoid God's plan for your life - if you decide to "play it safe," you are actually taking the most risky position. When you hear and obey God - though it may not make sense - you are taking a step into the arms of the Father. If you disregard God's call to walk by faith, you will forfeit your inheritance.
Faith is inspired by hearing God's word. You can't have faith if you are not listening. Sometimes, you wonder why your faith seems weak or very up and down. It has to do with your ears. When you are listening to God through his Word and his still, small voice, faith begins to rise.
Acts motivated out of a living faith in Jesus are not the basis of our salvation, but rather the fruit of our salvation. The death and resurrection of Jesus is the only pathway for our intimacy with the Father. But our faith-filled actions are the necessary manifestation of this salvation.
Jesus stopped and responded to the man's hunger - to his desperation - to his faith. Jesus called the man over and asked what he wanted. The blind man said, "Lord, I want to see."
Faith is not a mere belief. It is acting upon the truth that God is alive and that he calls the world to know him. Faith is not faith until it gets out of your head and into your hands and feet. Faith must be active. It is obedient action based on the certainty that God is alive. This is what pleases the heart of God.
