Faith can see beyond the natural worldly limitations when I allow it!
I am so beyond greatful to have my Pastor Juanita Gibbs in my life. Her relentless love to help me become what I need to be is a first and honestly it was needed to help heal areas in my soul.
I have been delving into faith for a while now to aide in growing my measure. God has been so lovingly revealing himself to me through His word that I pray my measure of faith becomes more and more active daily in my journey.
With faith it requires trust!
Which is in part why I believe my friday blog he revealed to me that as long as I believe in Him, he will not disappoint me. It takes a steady faith to build trust. Just like with human yo human trust there must be a steady commitment to each other.
God has already revealed his level of commitment to me and the world by giving His son to die to for me to believe on Him and be saved and transformed into a new person. But the new person takes work to become and commitment to the process.
Pastor has taught me that I need to make the word of God a way of life! Make His word more supreme than what my soul may dish out that gets me away from faith. The more I make His word my life He reveals himself.
The truth that the word contains is the power that will set me free. There is nothing in this world but the word that can set me free in my inner most being. I have to allow that truth to pierce my soul of all the build up negativity that is against the word, and allow the light of truth to come in.
O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.
Psalms 43:3-4 KJV
There is a worship song that I recall so vividly called “Open Up and Let thr Light In” by Stephanie Gretzinger and that is what I have to continue to do is open up my soul and let the light in.
With out the light my faith is like a closed rose awaiting to bloom into its fullness and thats how my faith has been for as long as i can recall. Pin holes that pricked the veil of darkness don’t allow enough light through to flourish and grow as needed in a life of faith.
Truth of the word which is a sword( Hebrews 4:12) has had to come to illuminate the darkness and begin to nourish those places that have been untouched for far too long. The more the light of the word and the light of the world in my savior keeps revealing himself and his love for me my faith and trust in Him will grow and root me by the stream of living water.
What a God I love and serve to send me what I needed contained in one vessel that being my Pastor of whom He has used in gracious ways for me. If he can do that for me there is nothing He cannot do as long as I believe!
