Romans 1: 17
I can’t remember how many times I have read this verse over my lifetime, but this time I have seen something I have never seen in it before – the righteousness of God is revealed from “faith to faith.”
Hebrews 11 is known as the Faith Chapter of the Bible. Many people of the Old Testament are listed as having a faith that God was pleased with. If you have not already read this chapter, please take the time to read and absorb it.
Verse 6 of the same chapter says that “without faith it is impossible to please him…”Since faith pleases God it makes perfect sense that He desires to help His Children obtain a deeper and more mature faith. We can’t see the outcome, but God always can. We just have to get to the point that we fully trust God to work on our behalf.
God is omniscient and omnipresent, so He can be everywhere, hear every prayer, and meet every need all at the same time.
He sees the big picture of how everything fits together and knows exactly who He wants to use for particular tasks. When He chooses YOU for something, it is because He knows you are capable of handling it and are the best person suited for the job.
When God tells us to do something that is way out of our comfort zone, most of us tend to look at all our faults, flaws, and shortcomings and tell Him that He must have picked the wrong person because we can’t imagine that we would ever be capable of doing something of such a great magnitude.
From my own experience, I have found that the times of my greatest growth are the ones where I have been the most out of my comfort zone. I know I can trust God with my life even if I don ‘t always know the direction He is taking me for a time.
So when you have completed one task of faith, He has another one for you to start. The next time you feel you are being stretched to the faith limit, remember that is how you grow as a Christian. Then remember that God wants to stretch and grow you so that you can be used for His Glory. When you think of it that way, faith doesn’t seem quite so hard.
It is a simple matter of believing that what God has said will come to pass. Try it and see God in a way you probably never have before!
