I was asked quite a few times to describe Faith
This is an excellent quesiton.
My answer in the past was to use the following analogy of
driving a motor vehicle……
When it’s time to stop….
You naturally, without thinking about it, without
worrying about it, without doubting that when
you apply your brakes…………
You’re going to stop.
But after reading this verse:
Jeremiah 1:5 ¶ Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before
thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee
a prophet unto the nations.
It dawn on me what Faith in GOD is, should be and can be…..exist on
a higher plane of our hearts by understanding Faith in a different way.
“GOD began walking down the road of my life. As he came across a
bump in the road, GOD gently placed a solution next to the bump. He
continued down the road of my life. In the middle of the road was a large
ditch, GOD paused and placed a solution down. With each solution, all I
had to do is to remember to pray at each point in my life and the answer
will manifested in the physical realm. GOD continued…..on the left side
of my road was a prayer, GOD paused and placed the answer on the
right side of the road. When GOD arrived at the end of the road,
He turned around…………..and I was born!”
¶ “Return to your Fortress, O Prisoners of Hope; This day
I will restore double to you.”
Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side, the Man of GOD’s own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be? CHRIST JESUS, it is HE;
LORD SABBOTH, art HIS Name, from Age to Age the SAME,
And HE must win the battle.
And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for GOD hath willed HIS truth to triumph through us:
The prince of darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little WORD shall fail him.
That WORD above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through HIM Who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: GOD'S TRUTH abideth still,
