Hope you’ve had a blessed start into the new month. Hello February!
To keep the positivity going, here’s a little positive note on faith (as in to believe) and how that can inspire you to achieve the things you’ve dreamt of achieving.
So what is ‘faith’? Faith is the foundation of what we do. We have faith in God, faith in people and faith for miracles. These three areas of faith help build and shape our spiritual journey and as a result enable us to experience the things we hope to come true. For without faith, we cannot expect the impossible to take place. The reason why faith is so important in our life is because from a christian journey we need faith to see the amazing things that God has in store for us and to walk into those things confidently. These are unexpected opportunities, miracles and or plans to take our journey to new heights.
So whAT ARE 3 areas of faith?
- Faith in God- On our christian journey we need faith to see the amazing things that God has in store for us. These are unexpected opportunities, miracles and or plans to take our journey to new heights. Trust him to lead you down the right path and to open those doors, because he cares for us.
- Faith in people- When you trust God with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding, you start to realise that God will place the right people in your life at the right time and at the right place . Our FCP team for example, is full of passionate people who have decided to help, support or share their expertise for this ministry, from different walks of life and stages in their walk with Christ, have been able to share their experiences, testimonies, skills, time, even their own money to invest into FCP, into the team and all those who get involved to try and encourage someone else to keep going and to share what God has done for them.
3. Faith for miracles- This is the thing that is considered a cliche. Some christians say they believe but don’t have the faith to believe that miracles still happen in 2018. The Bible talks about the woman with a blood issue she'd had for 12 years. She was convinced with faith that even if she were to just touch the hem of Jesus' robe she could be healed and she was... instantly! Jesus in the midst of the crowd felt the power go out from him. He knew what and He knew who and told her "your faith has healed you". From this example we can take a simple lesson, we know God has the power, but when we have the faith, that’s when miracles happen.
Ok so what about today's miracles? When driving a car and your fuel indicator has gone past touching the ‘E’. You still have a few miles to go until you reach the nearest petrol station. You also know that you’re putting your car to the test to reach those last few miles before it begins to jitter and give up. But you have faith and believe your motor vehicle is able to get you to that petrol station, and it does! Or when you have no money in your bank account and don't know how you will get to work or even eat this week, you get up Monday morning ready to go, trusting in God and out of nowhere an unexpected deposit is made to your account and your worries for the week are far behind you. You say to yourself “My heart was thumping, i was worried, anxious, praying with all my heart and thank God I made it, thank God i'm going to be ok”. Do these not seem like miracles to you? Of course! Look how he cares for the birds in the sky..how much more will he take care of you. Trust in God for the small things, Trust in God for the big things too, and trust he knows what is best!
So there you see it. Faith is more than just a word. Faith is Trust in action! We hope this motivates you to reach out for the uncommon and exercise the faith and expectation until you have your miracle.
Have a blessed week
