Faith is a seed that comes from within. If you trace the history of the Israelites from their rescue from slavery in Egypt to their journey to the promised land and the generations that followed, you will see that faith does not come from things on the outside. As God’s chosen people, they witnessed and experienced more miracles, signs and wonders than any generation before or since and yet their hearts still turned away from God.

 

To be occupied with what we see or feel directly reverses the condition that God has laid down for us to follow – to walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)

 

To walk by faith is a heart decision because faith is a heart that believes God in every circumstance of life. Faith is related to two realities we cannot see with our natural eyes – God and God’s Word. Yes, you find faith deep within your spirit – faith to believe, faith to trust, faith to rely only on God and His Word. This deep inner conviction is the seed of any real believer. And no matter what happens on the outside, the seed remains.

 

The Bible tell us in 1 John 3:9, “No one who has been born of God practices sin, because His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin continually, because he has been born of God.”

A Christian does not make sin his trademark, his lifestyle. A Christian does not live and walk in it for His seed remains in him, that is faith born of God.  

 

Ask Jesus to water the seed of faith within you as you remain in His Word, in Jesus’ name.

THE PILOT IN COMMAND

“Those who serve God with their heart are those who allow God to give birth to their heart’s desires. These are those who put God to where He really belongs: not in the luggage compartment, not in economy class, not in business class not in first class by in the cockpit !!! For them God IS THE PILOT IN COMMAND. Their heart is the cockpit where God dwells and files the flight plan: God decides the destination and the itinerary leading safely to that place at God’s appointed time.”

THE MOST PRECIOUS THING

“If we were to see things the way God does, we would see the immense value of godly character that comes from loving God and shunning evil. In fact, it is the most precious thing that we possess in God’s sight.”

GOD’S APPOINTMENT IN THE WILDERNESS

“Ask anyone and they will tell you that they long to hear from God, to have a personal encounter with Him, to know His will and direction for their life. But many of us fail to realize that often God gives us an appointment in the wilderness.”
