A Little Faith


Have you ever wondered whether you have enough faith to please God? Do you have the gift of faith? As you take a look at your life circumstances and compare them to your blessings, can you say that it was your faith in God that brought you through your situation?

Let us take a look at the gift of faith. If you would go to The Book of Hebrews, found in the New Testament of the Bible, you will find that the writings focus on having a personal relationship with God. It defines faith as follows: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

If you already possess a thing, then you have no need to hope for it. You will not need faith to see it or receive it because you already have it. There is no evidence to prove that you possess it in the present. This is where faith comes into the picture. Your faith shows that you believe that God can give you what ever it is that you are believing for.

Hebrews Chapter 11 also says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” If you do not have faith then there is no need in asking for anything because you will not receive it from God.

Faith is not believing that you can have what you say. Faith is believing that the Lord is able. You must first believe that he is who he says he is and that he can do all that he said that he can do.

When you come to actually believe that he is, then your faith can grow. James 2:20 tells us the following: But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? You can want something all you want, but until you believe that you will receive it, you will not see it come to pass.

A little faith is all that you need. According to Luke 17:6, And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

You may have the faith of Noah who build an ark when there was no evidence of rain. You may even have the faith of Abram, who left his land based on a promise from the Lord that he could not see. All it takes is a little faith to receive your blessings.

Be Blessed
