“Faith has no braille to touch”©
Blind faith… it doesn’t mean you trust
blindly, only what you believe hasn’t
been seen yet to prove it works.
There will be many times in our lives we will be: mocked, scorned, belittled, intimidated and ridiculed for our faith we have in Jesus… even told it is “blind faith.” To an extent this is true, our faith is blind faith… believing in something not yet made manifest (in our physical realm during our day) or is yet unexperienced or unknown. This is why it is called faith… to firmly believe the validity of the word of God Himself, and what has been revealed to us (through the Spirit and/or as something we have already is true or truthful) is a promise of God. When God made promises in the past… they were fulfilled, and it is still the same today. God is unchanging… the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. This is something we should have no doubt about and it’s an altruism which applies to everyone that has ever considered seeking God for their own understanding.
I firmly believe two of the greatest things God gives us to use are prayer and faith. Prayer is not just saying what we hope for God to do for us, it is a direct connection between the Creator of the universe, the LORD God almighty… and you. This is where faith comes in, you must believe God loves you so much He would desire to hear from you (a personal God is Jesus) and to be able to pray, and believe, requires faith. Faith to know God does care for you, and He is always available to us. There is never a time God is not available to us, as His children… as believers in Him. This is one of the strongest aspects and attributes a believer could ever have… an open door to the presence of God Himself. One must simply believe it is true, and the surety of this is God told us it is true, His very word is something we can rely on… for God does not lie. A promise from God is something to treasure for the rest of your natural days… even on to the eternity we face with Him- if we will but believe the truth of the words of Jesus… the living word of God and God Himself.
I ask that you might pray for enlightenment and a filling of the Spirit before you read the scriptures provided.
(God does not lie)
Job 8:3 Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?
(where our heart should be)
Job 27:10 Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?
(God hears our prayers)
1 Kings 8:45 Then hear thou in heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.
(Does not perpetually mean always?)
1 Kings 9:3 And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
(A link between prayer and belief)
Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
(Strength comes by prayer unceasing)
Acts 6:4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
(We are to live by faith)
Habakkuk 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
(Secure your faith and strengthen it, know who your faith is in)
Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
(Faith in God and none other)
Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
(Faith can be the weapon of God by the faithful)
Hebrews 11:30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.
Faith… it is something we must have If we say we believe in Jesus. To believe Jesus is God is the primary key here… the one that develops our faith to begin with. It is by faith we should walk… and when we walk in faith is to be Spirit led- this is the way a christian is to be: taught by the Spirit directly, guided to the purpose the Spirit would have for us and will lead to see ‘the amazing’ as normal as your breathing comes to you. This is “the New Testament” living… whereby we will be strengthened in our faith daily, and each new day will deepen the desire within us for the need to share “the Good News” of the gospel- the love of God for mankind and all humanity… those willing to see the truth of God’s love for us all. Remember, belief in Jesus assures us our faith can grow to maturity… feed your faith in the living word of God. I believe there is hope for mankind… don’t you?
