When our fear is ramped, our eyes are on us, guaranteed. When our faith in God is ramped, our humble focus is on God, guaranteed. You cannot operate deep in faith in God and still be unable to function due to fear. It is impossible. Faith and focus on God is love and that drives fear away. There is no room for fear when you are operating in faith in God. It is impossible and you are not being truthful if you say otherwise. And we cannot overcome a lie with another lie, we must call it as it is and then we can fix it with humble faith and focus on God and be set free from fear. Knowing and admitting is half the battle. The second half is deciding to trust (act out your faith in) God and focus on Him.❤
Faith is being told the road continues straight in a foreign country by a guide you trust but you cannot see it because of a thick fog that morning.
Trust is taking the steps on the unseen road into the deep fog straight ahead to get where you want to go.
You have faith your guide will not lead you off a cliff. You prove it by trusting him enough to take that step.😄❤
Proving what I believe, my faith in God, happens when I trust God with any and every situation I am in. Trust is saying “I have faith that God is who He says, lives me like He says, and cares enough to handle everything” but taking it a bit further and actually entrusting everything to Him. It is putting n your money where your mouth is and saying to every situation, “I do not fear you, God loves me and is in control.” Then you let go of it and lift it up to God and humbly ask Him “Lord, please take this situation and handle it. I will do my part but the rest I leave to you. Thank you.” Trust is faith’s daily application. It proves it.😄❤
There is no stronger, more powerful person in the world than a humble, faith-filled person with a relationship with God, saved by Jesus Christ and filled with the Holy Spirit. This is truth and the reason is that when this happens, God in His amazing power and abilities can flow through that person to accomplis anything real or imagined that God desires. ❤
Just wanted to remind you, in this extraordinarily distracting and busy world, that God is still in control and always answers humble, faith-filled prayers. That has not ever changed because He does not change, His faithful, loving character dictates this. God hears you. He knows you by name and how many hairs are on your head (or legs if hair on the head is sparse lol) in a given moment. We must remember through the distractions and cares and worries and busy-ness that fact, that truth. Pray and believe it. Pray that God will send the cold front faster so Dorian turns sooner to do less damage. Then believe He will do it. And pray believing and with humbleness and a right, purified-by-Jesus mind and He will answer that prayer. This is how He works and it is an excellent example. Works in any circumstance. He wants us to remember, have faith and be humble. The God who has upheld and protected the great, beautiful state of Israel, still upholds us also. He is so very good and His grace, love and mercy are very generous to us who pray. Remember that always and get praying for this Dorian situation and any needs you have. Be saved, humble and have faith and God will answer. Every time this is true. He loves us so much!❤
Q: Why do you trust in God?
A: Because He has proved Himself faithful, trustworthy and truthful to His Word, the Bible.
Q: Why is He worthy of so much praise, worship and focus?
A: Because He made everything we know about, even you and I, and still loves us amazingly.
Q: What makes you so adamant that you are right about God?
A: 1. If you look objectively at the world, those who obey Him are blessed measurably. 2. His nature proves it in its glory and perpetuity. 3. The Bible has never been proven incorrect in any point despite much effort to try. 4. God has fulfilled every prophecy up to the end times prophecies, which will be fulfilled very soon.
Q: Aren’t there many ways to God and therefore heaven?
A: The only way is through the grace and acceptance of Jesus Christ as our sinless sacrifice and baptism of water and Spirit. The only way is Jesus.
Q: How do you know?
A: The Bible said it and Jesus Christ said it and again, it has been proven very reliably to be the truth.
Q: Do you ever doubt?
Q: Why not?
A: Because my own life is a testament to the truth of it all. When I obeyed the Bible and stayed close to Jesus through prayer, Bible reading and obedience, God blessed and provided for me and molded me into a humble and therefore useful follower of Christ. And He gives me such a peace and joy and sense of loving family andfulfillment/contentment that I have never experienced apart from Him.😄❤
I was just thinking about my daddy. He passed two years ago now and I often remember him fondly. His greatest legacy was one of faith. He was faithful. Not just was he a faithful husband to my mom but he was all in, faithful to the core to his faith, his family, his country, his beliefs, his land. He did not stop being what he believed in my whole life. And that is why I am the way I am and believe so strongly in being faithful, being all in to God, my family, my country, my beliefs. It carries down.
Be faithful, dads. You are doing great. Even if you screw up a bit, just swallow that pride and ask forgiveness.. wives and kids are in general very forgiving… and keep being faithful. Or start today to make that legacy to pass down, it is never too late. Just please do keep working at it. You are the head of your house/family and families are why America is so great. You are vitally important to make or break everything, which is proved by how heavily society is attacking you. Be courageous, be all in and be faithful. Like my daddy, the best man who ever walked the earth (other than the God-man Jesus, of course).❤
