This week the Lord has been speaking to me a lot about faith! I don’t have the time to get into all of the things that He is showing me or teaching me, but there is one thought that I want to share for whoever or whatever.
Faith is about trusting God. Faith is about wanting more than anything – the thing that God wants for and from you. Faith is trusting in God’s will and wisdom above and beyond your own! We mess up faith when we start putting our stuff into it, so be careful!
Many times this week, I have read how God performed extraordinary miracles in ordinary people’s lives. He healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, raised the dead and even allowed a hard headed disciple to walk on water. In each situation the miracle of God was performed in response to His people’s faith. When God’s people have faith – God’s power moves in and through their lives.
We must wait on God, but when He speaks, we must be ready to move and we must move. Our moving in response to His speaking is a key that unlocks the miraculous! So there are two things that are important here: 1.) Make sure that you are listening for and to God. Don’t do anything until you are sure that you have heard His voice and received His direction. Once you have heard His voice and received His direction: 2.) Move! Start stepping in whatever direction He is leading! Our movement puts feet to our faith and gets the whole process headed in the right direction!
