January 15, 2020 HAVE FAITH
There are many times in life we start something not totally knowing what the outcome will be. We start a new job, a project or a family. Most of us just don’t sit at home in the dark because we are afraid of doing anything thinking bad things will happen. No, we have hope our new job will work out, our project will succeed and our family will be healthy and grow. God wants us to step out in faith in all we do. He wants us to have faith in Him as we work toward our goals that are in line with His will. God is looking for people to seek Him and have faith so He can bless them and help them succeed.
1 John 5:4-5 “For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.” (NLT)
1. Write what actions you take in faith.
2. List what God has called you to do for Him.
3. Know God will help you as you step out in faith.
4. Remember those who are faithful will be blessed and succeed.
Dear Lord, we want our faith to be strong in You. We know You have great plans for us but we aren’t always taking the action You require. Show us, today, what You want us to do and help us to step out in faith. We know doing Your will is why we are here. Give us the courage, the strength and the desire to do Your will and step out in faith knowing You have everything under control. Even though we can’t see the outcome, we know You have a perfect plan for our lives. Thank You, Lord. Thank You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Doing what God calls us to do when we don’t know the outcome is acting in faith and that is what He calls us to do.
Hebrews 11:1 “Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.” (NLT)
Noah was rewarded due to his faith in God.
Hebrews 11:7 “It was by faith that Noah built a large boat to save his family from the flood. He obeyed God, who warned him about things that had never happened before. By his faith Noah condemned the rest of the world, and he received the righteousness that comes by faith.” (NLT)
We are to not put our faith in man, the world or ourselves. We are to put our faith only in God.
Habakkuk 2:4 “Look at the proud! They trust in themselves, and their lives are crooked. But the righteous will live by their faithfulness to God.” (NLT)
