Give me Faith

Posted: March 27, 2015 in Uncategorized

In my last writing I shared a time recently that I went through that proved to be one of the most difficult times of my life. What happened next was like being blindsided by a big defensive end and Michael Ohr  not being there to stop it from happening. (This is where I say thanks to Michael Ohr and the movie blindside for helping me with the example 🙂 ) Anyway, I had just come out of the valley and was standing on the mountain top when in a matter of days I found myself in the valley again! I’m not going into detail here but what has happened is that God has put me in a place where faith is my only option. It’s my families only option. Maybe you are in a spot in your life where you want to have faith in God but maybe you feel like you just don’t have the faith it takes. I feel you. Sometimes having faith is one of the hardest things we can do. We see things happen and our little minds think that this is just life, what can God do? Someone we know and love has cancer and the Dr. gives a bad report and we accept that report as the gospel. In reality the blood of Jesus screams trust me!! Put your faith in me!! I can heal the sick, heal the hurting and mend the broken. When we find ourselves in difficult circumstances in life it’s hard to truly trust and just as difficult to have faith. Even when I look back on my life and see just how good God has been to me, I still struggle to put my faith in Him. I have taught about it and I have sang about it. One of the lines from a song I love says “Give me faith to trust what uou say that your good and your love is great!”  That same song goes on to say ” I may be weak , but your spirits strong in me , my flesh may fail but my God you never will !” I truly believe that my God has never failed and He never will. My flesh wants to tell me different. So what do we do? We have to do what Paul says and beat our flesh, we have to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ. We have to remember what God has done for us in the past. Jesus is our hope and our future. So think of it this way. Hope Is CONFIDENTALLY EXPECTIMG SOMETHING To Happen. Those are big words. So when we need faith ask God. He’s the giver of life and the giver of all good things from above. Ask Him for more faith, and confidentially expect Him to move on your behalf. Faith, hope and love. The greatest is love. He loves us and he is jealous for us. He will take care of us. He already has and always will. Love him today and put your faith in Him even when your circumstances seem to be the worst.

In Christ,

Steven
