Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23 NKJV
How many times do we hear people saying this phrase? “I believe in God!” However, we do not see the results of this so called “faith” in their lives. How come one says he believes in the Almighty, and yet he is living as if he follows the devil? Something must be wrong. It does not make sense for a person to claim he is a child of God and lives a miserable life.
The problem is that, besides believing in God, one has also to believe in himself. It is not enough to have a theoretical faith since it does not work without actions. Faith is to put the Word of God into practice.
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV
Imagine if your spouse would say to you “I love you”. Nonetheless, this same person cheats on you each and every opportunity he or she gets. In addition to that, he does not consult you before making decisions. He comes home late hours without giving you any explanation. Would you like this kind of love? Of course not! The same happens with the faith. It can not be just theoretical but rather practical.
As a result of that, we have to believe not only with words, but with actions! Having said that, only those who believe that God is with them can take action and change their situation.
Dear reader, how long have you been waiting for God? And yet, The Almighty is the one waiting for you to use your faith so that He can meet you halfway. Let’s remember the Angel of the Lord telling Gideon to take action and deliver Israel from their oppressors.
Then the LORD turned to him and said, “Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?” Judges 6:14 NKJV
Enough is enough! It is up to us to use the most powerful weapon that exists on earth in order to defeat all our problems. What is this weapon, you may be asking yourself. Is it a secret weapon? No, dear reader, it is not a secret weapon. We have it with us all the time. However, we do not use it as often as we should. It is The Supernatural Power of Faith. All of us have it at our disposal to see the power of God being manifested in our lives!
May God bless you and give you courage to use the power of faith that is inside of you!
