By Faith, we have Faith! I know now, TYL, what this means. I pray I can help others to find this place of total comfort as well. Mind you it is not a passive place, it is not an instant fix place, however it isn't blind either. It is t blind faith, it is eyes wide open faith. Total and complete belief!! Belief in Him, His power, His promises - praise, belief and trust you have already received what you have asked for. Faith, the kind of faith we can each possess can actually move a mountain.
How is it that we forget to have faith? How do we not see that even in our day to day lives we confirm lack of faith? How, you say. How about your complaining, the simple statements we make to each other about what is wrong, what we need, how we have been victumized. This gesture not only grieves God, it hurts the very person you are speaking to. Think about it, what are you saying to them... Here are my problems, fix them for me. Worse you aren't asking, you are expecting even if it is only subconsciously, for that listening party to make an effort to help you. This is terrible, stop it, if you want help -ask. Also to the fixers - stop fixing it isn't your job!
As a fixer, an obediant person, a giving person in my heart; I always fell into this trap. It hurt me terribly, as the outcome of thankfulness, that person seeing loyalty and being loyal back, trustworthy and so on, simply didn't happen. Why. I believe I was interrupting their opportunity to have faith and after their emergency was over they resented their inability to do it themselves and then resented me. Why am I expressing this, I want real people in my life. Only real people that aren't angling to get something from me. I have made my requests known to the Lord, whereby now I have faith, it is just the real people that will come to me and stay. Further, I have faith in the Lords plan, His timing, His strategy and I know it is not my job to intervene on Gods plan. Not my job to fix. Thank You Lord.
So what should you do? Make yourself unforgettable to God, please Him. Our conversations reveal who we are, what we love, hate, crave, despise; all is exposed in our words. Faith is having TOTAL CONFIDENCE in the God. Speak confidently of Gods integrity, and victoriously exude your anticipation of His miracles... This pleases God! God remembers when we please Him!
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.”
Hebrews 11:1-2 NIV
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
Hebrews 11:6 NIV
