Enlarged Faith

keep the faith

Hope is an essential factor and a stepping stone in developing living faith. Hope tells us, our expectations in God are going to somehow work out- possibly. On the contrary, faith is the energy that knows and believes that God is going to keep His word, and work things out for us-no doubts! However, when we begin to hopefully anticipate God’s help as the answer to our need, our spiritual enemy strikes out and works hard to overthrow our hope. But, as we learn to resist the devil and not listen to the negative self-talk and lies spoken to our heart and mind, he will flee. Then the Holy Spirit will make alive the power of the Logos Word and gift us with clarity and encouragement- enlarging our faith! The foundation of faith is that Christ loves us compassionately, unconditionally, and will graciously give us wisdom, guidance, protection, and provide our every need.  True faith must be tested to see if it is authentic – not dependent on what we see or feel in the natural.  God always honors living faith, because we are assured and believe His promises are a reality- yes and amen! True faith produces a “rest” for God’s people that cannot be taken away.

“Now faith is the assurance [the confirmation, the title deed] of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]” (Hebrews 11:1).

“As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried. His is a Shield to all those who trust and take refuge in Him. For who is God but the Lord? And who is a Rock except our God? God is my strong Fortress. He guides the blameless in His way and sets him free” 11Samuel 22:31-33.
