So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. Matthew 21:21
Faith is a word often heard in conversations involving “Christians”. Have faith in God, He will work it out. Keep the faith, everything will be alright. Where is your faith? Yet when all hell breaks loose in the lives of “Christians” faith isn’t the word you hear. You hear “what am I gonna do now?” “I can’t believe this happened to me.” You see tears and frustration and most often you hear fear. Well “Christians” Fear and faith cannot reside in the same place! You either trust God or you don’t. I know you get sucker punched from time to time by things you weren’t expecting and I know you go through things you don’t feel you have the strength to endure but if you really believe in God, you get up, dust yourself off and keep it moving knowing that you are not walking alone.
But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. James 2:18
There’s too much talk about God and how much His people trust Him but not enough action to show Him you really do. There’s too much complaining, too much crying, too much worrying and far too much doubting. GOD is the same God that brought you out last time, provided for you last time, defeated the enemy last time and saved you when you were lost. He can do all things but you must believe it enough to trust Him. Stop doing what you hate because you believe it’s your only option, stop going to that job that isn’t satisfying you because you believe you need it, get out of that relationship that isn’t providing what you need because you believe no one else wants you and don’t let another person disrespect you when God loves you, respects you, appreciates you and is waiting for you to trust Him so He can provide for you. Show your faith and walk out on the water during the storm. While you can’t see the solution walk out. Even though you don’t know what the outcome will be walk out. Trust God enough to step out and walk!
Trust Him today with everything in your life,
Minister Deidra Bibb
