Have there been moments in your life when you felt like there’s no way out? When you felt lost and hopeless? When everything around you seems to fail? I know I have had moments of worry and fear in my life and I am sure many of you out there have felt the same. During these times, it’s important to hold on your faith in God. There is power in having faith. Matthew 17:20 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.” This verse just shows you what faith can do. With faith nothing is impossible!
The bible shows us the power of faith through many examples of the people God used. For example, If Moses didn’t have faith in God, he could never have freed all the slaves from Pharaoh and cross the Red Sea. As a human, Moses was not capable of stepping up as a leader against Pharaoh, but with his faith in God,anything was possible. Another great example is the story of Abraham. Abraham was able to reach the promise land and have many decendents to come because of his faith to God. Although God took Abraham out from his home and comfort zone, into a desert and the unknown, he still kept going and had faith that God would lead him to the promise land. His faith resulted to great blessings. It says in Genesis 22:17, “I will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants beyond number, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore.” There are other endless examples used in the bible to show the power of faith. Some examples are the story of David and Goliath, Sampson, March of Jericho, Noah and the ark, and many more. If you think about it, everyone used by God in the bible needed faith. Before they could even start God’s work, the first thing they needed was to have faith. Faith requires taking a huge step, but in return your reward will be great.
If you are struggling in life, or if God has called you to do his ministry, don’t hesitate and take the leap of faith. Trust in him because he knows what’s best for you. The first thing we need to do to accomplish God’s calling is to have faith in him. After faith, the rest will come together. Have faith in God, believe in him, and lastly trust in God! With all 3 things you can accomplish what God has in stored for you. Believe in yourself because you can count on God. Unlike knowledge, faith has no limits. Faith is what allows miracles to happen. And yes, the miracles that happened centuries ago in the bible can still happen today! Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
God honors your hard work and faith to him. He will reward those who seek him. Hebrews 13:5says, “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.” Through faith, you can gain the promises God has in stored for you. With faith, anything is possible. Let your faith drive your hope! So remember, faith has power.
