Faith in God
Proverbs 19:23 A man’s righteousness gives him the fruit of justice, And with right judgment, he lets the beating of his heart shine.
Righteousness is not faith in God, faith in God is righteous. When you are trying to build your faith in God, but you are still having trouble going through the things God has asked you to go through, then you may need to turn your thinking about God a little bit upside down.
There are Surefire Guides Who will help you through every trouble, and not one trouble will be left to bum you out without God’s leading hand to help you through it.
If you live your life looking for somebody else to do it all, then sooner or later you are going to get in trouble. When trouble comes rushing at you, many times you will get so fretful that you start reasoning with yourself, arguing with yourself rationalizing how you could circumvent the problem, forgetting to associate with the right people.
Sooner or later the bubbling faith that is starting to move throughout your whole body will start to cool, and you will start to worry. You will not want anybody to lead you to the water when the road is still wet. You might even get so mad at God that you close your eyes in worship and curse the crap out of God when your back is against the wall.
James 1:8(ASV)”Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”
The enemy will tell you a thousand and one reasons why God is causing you to struggle. He will equate you with pumpkins so he can get you to think he is a dumb ignorant Christian being lead around by demons. He will get you to believe that real troubles will come and all you need to do is to relax your faith.
Lose sight of Who you really are, and focus all your faith on keeping you going. Don’t take the next step; misinformation will keep you from climbing the mountain. Take a step, at the very least, every day to build your faith. Because the enemy knows if you don’t grow it will soon diminish and he will get you right back where he wants you – back where he can jam you up and stop your momentum.
The next time you are thinking,” I am right where God says I should be.” Take a leap of faith, and leap forward into the running head-on into the path whose end is not known. Face the fact, face your fears, face Satan and his demons with the truth of who you are and what you were created to do. Face the fact that you can do all things that are commanded to you if you stay in the will of God. You are reborn, born again, made in God’s image, and like Jesus said, “I and my father are one.” Keep yourself healed, and operating in the blessings of God and the power of the Holy Spirit.
