How faith is activated

 

 

First of all let us remember what the Apostle Paul declared his faith was not activated by what he saw with his natural eyes, for his faith was the substance of things hoped for.

One-way of putting it is this way, my faith is my substance and the word substance means material or stuff. Another way of putting it is faith is my stuff. All I need is faith and or trust.

Apostle Paul proclaimed clearly, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” He went on to list the things that many have to face during their lifetime. We must hear what he was telling us and believe it with all of our hearts. He also said, “For I am persuaded”, this meaning that he was convinces.

He did not doubt he was not swayed into believing in anything other than the love of Christ.

 One must remember that Apostle Paul by no means had an easy life, let’s face it most of his writing were done while he was in a dungeon with very little to convince him had he been looking around the environment, summing up all his naturals material goods.

He was not operating in the realm of his natural eyes could see while he was suffering from the beatings that were inflected upon him.

Yet here we are living with all modern conveniences and still can’t put one foot in front of the other with out complaining about how hard life is.

Yet the power of the living Christ was sustaining him, he had acquired a far greater support through the Holy Ghost that was dwelling inside his soul.

I am aware that some may come back with a reply to this word, yeah but after all he was the Apostle Paul. My reply or questions back at you, what, do you think he did not have feelings?

Was he not hungry and thirsty, suffered the cold nights and the burning heat from the day? Do you think he was not hurting with the pain racking through his body?

Do you actually think just because he was an Apostle that this made him some sort of super human being with no feelings?

Do you think Jesus felt no pain? Do you think he felt nothing while hanging on the cross dying for us? Even while He was dying, He got thirsty for a drink. Do you think He felt nothing because He was the Son of God? Jesus had a human body, so He felt pain, hunger, thirst, all the things any human being feels.

Through the sufferings that our Lord Jesus went though for us, has given us hope and faith for our salvation He suffered giving His life so that we could be redeemed from sins, He did no sin yet He suffered for our sins.

Truth is, there has been much suffering for mankind to live a full life and to be filled with the spirit of God.

 Paul was going through sufferings while he was writing the books he was assigned to write for the Bible. Here we are complaining about how hard it is to read and asking the question why should I read the Bible. Answer is how can you gain the knowledge about faith if you do not read the Bible.

Do you really think that the writing on faith would of had more of an affect had Jesus came with all the glamour that the World is so set on obtaining?

Oh but let me tell you something, He may have came in a humble setting the first time but Jesus Christ is soon to be coming in all His full glory, praise God!

The setting of Paul’s life was an example to follow for he could not go by what he saw around him .If Paul had been inside a palace writing then what the people would have said about that was yeah right, he can write about faith here he is setting up inside a palace.

The Bible was not written just to shout of a bunch of rules and restrictions it was written so we could learn the ways of living by faith and to know God.

Whether one is in need of a healing, restoration, salvation whatever the need may be it is only going to come through faith in God.

We cannot even compare out lives to those that were the forerunners, yet all we can do is drag around wondering why things just don’t pop out of heaven onto our laps.

Faith is the substance of things hoped  for and the evidence of things not seem. The only way we can activate faith is to believe and to speak faith ,not what we see with our natural eyes, no matter what things may look like around us. It is a total trust in God.

I pray this opens your eyes as you read.
