Put Your Faith to Work (1)

Put Your Faith to Work (1)

“Thy faith hath made thee whole.”   Lk 17:19

We become so engrossed in what we see, feel, and hear, that we operate within our natural senses rather than our spiritual ones. “Through your faith, God is protecting you by his power” (1Pe 1:5 NLT). Your “faith” is what activates the power of God. Before a stone becomes a diamond it’s just carbon put under millions of pounds of pressure. The Bible says, “These trials will show that your faith is genuine” (v. 7 NLT). Trouble not only places a demand on your faith, but reveals the depth of it. You don’t really know much about your faith when your bills are paid, your body is healthy, your children are acting right, and your marriage is intact. But when all hell is breaking loose and you trust God to bring you through it, you know you’ve got faith. Sometimes we think we’re doing better spiritually than we are. But often the enemy has not ceased to attack, he’s just moved from doing it in the natural realm to doing it in the spiritual realm. He’s attacking your mind, your rest, your peace, your emotions and your thought life. So what can you do? Lift up the shield of faith and stop his flaming arrows. Take…the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and use it to drive him back (See Eph 6:17 NKJV). Put your faith to work. Say, “Enough is enough,” and begin to take back what the enemy has stolen from you.

Faith is trust. Faith is powerful but only as a retclefion of who we put our faith in. When we take God at His word and then outwardly show that we do things change. It shows that we trust that His unseen words are stronger than anything in the natural. Thank you for your comments. We are encouraged to be more descriptive and clear than ever. Thanks for watching.
