According to Your Faith

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

“...According to your faith be it done to you.”
(Matthew 9:29, ESV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

A lot of times when people have a need, they think that if God wanted to, He would just automatically meet it. But Jesus didn’t say, according to your need be it unto you; He said, according to your faith. That’s why it’s so important to have an attitude of expectancy every single day. If we want God to move in our lives, we have to approach every day filled with faith and hope.

Scripture tells us in Romans that “faith comes by hearing the Word of God.” The more you meditate on the Word of God, the more your faith will grow and the more you will see Him working in your life.

Remember, God longs to bless you, and He’s given you everything you need to be successful in life. All things are possible to those who believe! Believe in His goodness today, believe His Word, and according to your faith, be it done for you!
Father, thank You for Your hand of blessing in my life today. I open my heart to You and trust that You have a good plan for me. Give me a heart filled with faith and hope to believe for every promise You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen

    I have lived through this during my pain ans suffering. Actually just now!!! i mean RIGHT NOW! But there have been other times too which I have experienced God mercy love and healing as I waited each day expecting it to happen. My latest experience with this is as such. I have been severely ill since December 2012. At times which lastest for months all I could do was lye on the couch morning to evening in pain. The doctors did not know what was wrong with me (it ended up being gastrtis) I knew that God healed me through prayer. But throughout the months I waitied and waited. S[emding a lot of time in prayer, worshiping hIm, talking to him and asking important questions such as:

    1. God show me your ways, help me to act and talk as you would during this time.
    2. God help me to heal and forgive (if this situation requires it)
    3. God give me your grace, and peace.
    4. Help me to spend more time with you and not allow other things to distract me from your presence and the time that I need to spend with you.
    5. God help me to be more patient, allow me to wait upon you for the final outcome and not take things into my own hands.
