I wanted to continue our subject on faith. Hebrews 11:2 says: By it (Faith) the elders obtained a good report. The report card at the end of our life will be based on our faith, whether we kept the faith or not. Paul said in 2 Timothy 4:7: I have fought a good fight, I have finished the race, I have KEPT the faith. Faith is so huge in God’s eyes that He said that it is impossible to please Him without it. That gets every bit of my attention, how about you. I can not give God rest until He teaches me everything about it and gives me the grace to live by faith. In the book of Isaiah 62:7 we are admonished to give God no rest. The bible says that the just shall LIVE by faith. Jesus was very displeased when He found no faith and also marveled when He found great faith. Another fact about faith is found in Hebrews 11: 3 which says that through faith we understand. Understanding comes by means of faith. No faith no understanding. In Matthew 13:19 Jesus said something so great that when ANYONE (no respecter of person) hears the word of the kingdom and UNDERSTAND it not then the wicked one comes and snatches it away. Do you see why in the book of Jude we are told to contend earnestly(with everything in us) for the faith that was once delivered unto the saints? Because God knows that no faith means no understanding which means it doesn’t matter how much word gets sown in your heart, if you don’t undersatnd it; satan will steal it and you will never produce fruit. Beloved i hope that i encouraged you to dig deep into this subject because frankly i don’t think you have a choice not to; unless of course if you will be happy with a bad report at the end of your time. Father, you said to us in your word to take deep roots downward that we may bear fruit upward; we want to bear fruits of faith O God and we have come today before your throne of Grace to obtain mercy and find grace for this time of need. We ask this in the name of Jesus.
