USE YOUR ‘MEASURE OF FAITH’

USE YOUR ‘MEASURE OF FAITH’

 

‘…God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.’    Romans 12:3 NKJV

 

The amount of faith God has given you is equal to the assignment He’s given you.

Do you believe that?

If so, whatever you’re facing, tell yourself, ‘God has given me the faith to handle this.’ Nothing’s more important than your faith.

Jesus told Peter, ‘…Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail…’ (Luke 22:31-32 NKJV).

Faith is more important than money, or career success, or reputation.

Everything can be taken from you, but if you have faith you’re sure to bounce back. Faith is like having a direct line to God. As the prayer of faith goes up, His power flows down.

As a result, you are more than adequate for the challenge. Failure is never final as long as your faith doesn’t fail. That’s why Satan will do everything he can to keep you from spending time each day in the Word. ‘Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ ’ (Romans 10:17 NIV).

Jesus said, ‘…If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move…’ (Matthew 17:20 NKJV). There are obstacles in your life that will only be removed by faith. And you don’t need a truckload of it, just a tiny mustard seed.

Think: a tiny (mustard) seed has the power to grow, overcome obstacles and become a mighty tree. It will press up through the ground, around rocks, braving storms, withstanding animals, and other threats to its life. It’s not so much the size of your faith, but the quality of it that determines your success.

So today, use your ‘measure of faith’.

What now?  

Have a look at Matthew 17:20. Try to Google what a mustard seed looks like. Just… there… look closer… closer… right… there. Now. Google an image of Mount Everest. Then, read Matthew 17:20 again. Yep…
