I am have hit a rough patch in my life that just smacked me in the face and I don't know how to handle it. Funny how God works because I got this email shortly after it all happened. It is about Faith. I want to copy and post it because it spoke to me and feel it is worth sharing. Someone should have had faith in me and now in turn I have to have faith in God that it will all work out.
The God Kind of Faith
“…the life which I now life in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God…” (Galatians 2:20).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Faith is all around us. People have faith in so many different things: faith that a friend will be true, faith that your job is taking you on a certain career path, faith that the chair you are sitting on is going to hold you up! Faith is simply believing in something. But there are different kinds, or levels, of faith. There’s a difference between having faith in God and having the faith of God. When you open your heart to the God kind of faith, you’re actually allowing Him to believe through you. The God kind of faith will cause you to believe for things when you don’t even know how they’ll happen. And it probably won’t make sense in your mind, but you have to allow your spirit to rise higher than your thinking. Don’t talk yourself out of believing. Don’t focus on all the reasons why not, instead allow God’s faith to rise up within you. Meditate on His Word that says, you can do all things through Christ and you are strong in the Lord and the power of His might. As you allow God’s faith to flow through you, He’ll take you places you’ve never dreamed. You will rise higher and higher and live the abundant life the Lord has for you!
