Hebrews 11:6 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.
In the pursuit of your dream or promise you can easily find yourself stuck, confronted with obstacles. The children of Israel were stuck in the wilderness for 40 years. What got them out of their wilderness situation was faith, not in themselves, but in God. You must administer the same cure. The children of Israel believing in themselves would never have been enough to allow them to cross the overflowing Jordan, neither would it have been sufficient to bring down the walls of Jericho. Your faith must be in God. Often faith is limited to saying we believe, but faith is evidenced by action. What you believe you do; translate your faith in God into measurable action.
The revelation of faith that the Lord gave me and I now work with is this: faith is following God’s instructions and commands even though your circumstances suggest that you do otherwise. With the Jordan overflowing its banks, the circumstances would have told the children that they cannot cross over into their promised land, but they chose to follow God’s instruction and did the opposite of what their circumstance said. That is how you administer the cure. We saw the same with the 10 lepers in St Luke 17, Jesus told them to go show themselves to the priest, and they went even though their circumstances would have told them they were still lepers. It was on their way to the priest that the healing was manifested. Follow God’s instruction even though your circumstances say otherwise. Anything less and that is putting your faith in you and other things.
Life application: As you pray about your circumstances God will give instructions, observe to follow them even when it seems foolish so to do.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to have faith in you and step into the unknown. Help me to follow your instructions at all times even when it doesn’t make sense. In Jesus name, amen.
