Matthew 17:20 “For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed.”
This week I did something out of faith. I was scared, nervous and very doubtful but I moved forward with faith. Normally my faith isn’t that strong. But I am learning in order to grow in Christ I must step out in my faith.
How is your relationship with God? Do you trust Him to lead you, even into trouble?
Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.”
I felt that inner nudge from time to time to speak up for the Lord, to approach that stranger or rebuke a friend’s comment. I always seemed to lack the courage to do as I was called. But as I look into it now it wasn’t a lack of courage but a lack of faith.
How much do I believe what I read, what I live? The bible is more than a righteous book; it’s a foundation of truth to build a relationship on. Jesus is more than red letter words, He is real.
How crazy do you think the town folk thought Noah was? To build that ark, imagine the ridicule he went through. Imagine the faith Noah had to build the ark? I guess that is why Jehovah saw favor in Noah. Genesis 6:8 “But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.”
What does your faith look like? What is God asking you to do?
