The concept of faith is a popular one for those of Christian faith. We often look at faith like this never-ending puzzle when really, it’s quite simple. You either have faith in God or you have faith in the wrong thing. It can be easier to have faith that something is going to go wrong because of your circumstances. Luckily, God wants to show you what the godlife looks like and how to have faith for what seems impossible. The Bible shows us endless acts of faith that we can learn from the life of Jesus. So, how do you have faith for the things you’re facing in your season with God? It’s easy to live a life of worry or fear when you fix your eyes on everything wrong thing happening. The godlife is full of faith-filled steps when you keep your eyes fixed on the faithful one, Jesus.
How much faith?
The godlife and the concept of faith do not have to be complicated! Faith is not based on how much you have of it but rather how long you hold onto it. It’s easy to stay in faith when everything is going well, but the real test is when storms arise. It’s important to hold on to what God has shown you through a trial and remember who He is when situations say otherwise. Faith is choosing to believe what God has said, holding onto it, and not letting go. Jesus shows us what faith is in Matthew 17:20. Jesus says, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” These are the very words from Jesus that can be your anchor of faith today.
Godlife of the Impossible
Understanding the nature of God will give you the faith that you need. God is our healer, Jehovah Rapha, and our provider, Jehovah Jireh. Whatever you are in need of today, Jesus is there to reveal his very nature to you through your situation. When we steer clear of God’s ability in the face of storms, we are doing ourselves and those around us a disservice. God is the one who wants to meet us right where we are, even if we have messed everything up. The godlife thrives off of impossibility with God’s power and ability! He wants to rescue us from even our worst mistakes and turn them into victory just like what He did on the cross. When all else fails, God will not. Will you choose to live the godlife and trust Jesus in faith today?
“And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)
Seeds of Faith: Testimony
Have you ever come to the end of yourself with only an ounce of hope left? Testimonies of the godlife have the power to lift us up out of a pit and place our feet on solid ground again. Testimonies of believers or straight from the Bible give us faith in a time of searching for hope and answers. If you are in need of a miracle in your body today, find a testimony of someone getting miraculously healed. If you are in need of a financial breakthrough today, find a testimony of someone with a financial breakthrough! These stories will infuse hope into your bones and direct you to the one who did the miracles, Jesus. Know if God did it for them, He will do it for you too.
God is on your side today and there is nothing you have to do for Him but believe who He says He is. If faith has been a complicated topic for you, I pray you to get a revelation today of the simplicity of the godlife and the clarity that comes in believing Jesus for anything and everything. It’s as simple as the day you said “yes” to Jesus in faith and it can be just as simple in saying “yes” to Him finishing the work, He started in you.
Hebrews 10: 39 says, “But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.”
