…….”Oh, have mercy on us and do something if you can.”. “If I can?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if you have faith.” The father instantly replied, “I do have faith; oh, help me to have more!”(Mark 9:22-24)
Faith is what makes it possible to know God and walk with Him. Is it possible to be filled with faith and doubt at the same time? Yes! You can have faith that God wants you to do something and still be scared to death.
But that’s OK, because God lets you begin with the faith you already have. It may be just a little, but that’s all you need to start. We have all thought at some point, “Lord, I have some faith. But I also have some doubts.” That’s where God will meet us and give us what we need to keep moving and accomplish the work he has given us to do.
Many times we live our lives in the SAFE place and are afraid to move to the RIGHT place. The ability to make this radical shift is what is called Faith!
God invites us to the best life possible if and only if we would walk away from our comfort zones, prejudices and entitlement and press on to what better things He has prepared for those who trust Him TOTALLY!!
What are some areas of your life where you trust that God is at work? What are some areas of your life where you’re struggling with doubt, wondering if God is really helping you?
Your knees may be shaking, but you just have to put one foot in front of the other. Keep moving forward!
What do you believe God wants you to accomplish? What are the tasks he has given you for today?
What scares you about your calling? What do you doubt?
How can Scripture encourage you as you move forward in faith, despite your fears?
Prayer: Lord, give me faith to reach out today and embrace the great things You have prepared for me. Take me from I am to where You want me to be. Lord, I confess I am afraid but let your will be done and your glory revealed in Jesus name. Amen
