Have Faith In God!
Have faith in God..." (Mark 11:21, NKJV)
Jesus told us to “have faith in God…” Simple, right?
It is, but sometimes we need a reminder. Jesus never told us to have faith in people or circumstances or money or things. Sometimes, we forget this basic truth and end up inadvertently placing our faith in the wrong things – and then we end up disappointed.
Let’s talk about it...
When we have faith in God – we are able to live in peace and joy, knowing He's at work in our lives. Our hearts are at rest and a sense of excitement and expectation fills our souls because we are sure that He is trustworthy. He never lies and His Word is true. He’s always on our side. He is faithful. His promises are true. He loves us. He will never leave us. He has all the power we need. He meets all our needs. He’s our all in all. He knows all, has all, can do all and is more than enough for us! He’s a good God and He satisfies our souls.
When we have faith in people, circumstances, money or things – we will eventually be disappointed because no one – or nothing – can live up to the unrealistic expectations we have. When our faith is in someone or something other than God, we will find ourselves being insecure, intimidated, anxious, fearful, proud, disillusioned, dissatisfied, confused, frustrated, offended and/or unfulfilled.
Today, who, what or where are you placing your faith? If necessary, make a simple tweak in your heart and put your faith in God!
Say It: “Father, today I am going to tweak my faith. I have faith in You and Your Word. Specifically, here's what I believe about You today: ___________. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
