Faith without doubt

Have faith in Gods faithfulness!

To be surrounded in my faith walk by people that genuinely encourage me to have faith for the promises of God for my life.

This weekend I took the chilren I am a youth teacher for out for a all day kids event. They had a fun time at all the activities I took them to be apart of. Face painting, bouce house, music, magic show, food and outside playground.

Needless to say they were tired. But my Pastor and others from my church encouraged me with how me teaching working, and spending time with the children can help prepare and train me for motherhood and a wifewhen my time comes.

I have to make sure that in making my request known to God that Ibhave faith in my request and not waiver in doubt like I have for so long before delving into growing my faith.

Being full of doubr has only brought upon my life the very thing I had feared and that was no manifestation. My doubt from my thoughts had infected my heart, thus making the fruit of my lips what I dwell in.

But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.
James 1:6 NASB

To move from this doubt life to a life of faith takes consistent work on my part of meditating in the scriptures. Taking and studying the word on deeper levels to help transform my soul.

I am striving to have consistent faith. All prior to this place I have had a faith high and faith lows. A roller coaster of faith. That is not the faith God wants us to have.

This walk to become anchored in faith has met some adversity, strong winds, counter current, basically anything to keep me from pressinng to become rooted and established to have a more fruitful faith life.

But, I am determined to keep pressing to become more firmly established in faith and not waiver and be tossed as I once had been.

Whats faith got to do with it?

Questioning faith?

Coming into a ministry like I am apart of now has truly truly helped to open my eyes to see things different in the word of God.

At Reformation Developmental Center they have broken down the teaching of our being so beautifully that it is revelatory beyond anything I had ever been exposed to in teaching of the word at this depth. For that I am greatful.

Pastor Juanita Gibbs has expounded about our being as I mention and our parts are Spirit, Soul, Body (1 Thess 5:23). In my time of study of faith, steadfast, unmoved I ran across the scripture below and it spoke to me in a new way. Maybe just personally for me, but I will share it.

And falling into a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the forepart stuck fast, and remained unmoveable, but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the waves.

Acts 27:41 KJV

When I came to the end of myself when I rededicated my life to the Lord at 24yrs old after I got saved at 12yrs old and didnt really attend church in that 12 yr span of time.

My spirit was reborn when I cam to the Lord and when I came back to the Lord I slowly was set ablaze with a fervent passion for knowing more about God and serving the kingdom.

The forepart of me, my spirit was whole heartedly stuck, steadfast and unmoved in the things of God. The spirit is to be my guidance.

But, as a babe in the faith just getting acquainted with the word and reading it and attending church regularly I found myself hungering to know more and more and more. Eventually seeking the baptism of the Holy Spirit and did with the evidence of other tongues. That even the more changes my passion for the things of God.

But, my soul wanted to be the lead of me and my life for a long time. My soul lead me to places I had no business being in, but I did for I listened to the voice of my soul and not my spirit.

This being soul lead caused me to be beaten by my emotions and in my mind when things fell apart. Following my soul lead to the end of many things. But, to follow my spirit it to be firm and secure.

The hinder part of me wants to lead, but the forfront of me should lead. Its like having a vehicle with optional front wheel or rear wheel drive. A matter of choosing which will take the lead.

The front of a vessel is where the ship goes and the rutter can stear the boat often times also, causing shifts in direction and course of trip unto an appointed destination.

So, now my soul needs to become firm to not be destroyed or beaten by the violent waves that will come. My spirit remains firm, but my soul(mind, will, and emotions) is where the work is to take place.

💙Faith In His Eternal Love 💙

For God love endures forever. He loved us when we were yet still sinners. He gave His son to save our soul!

I am reminded of a song while I am writing this by an artist I got to see in concert some years back now. But the song was called “Lead me to the cross.”

How fitting for that song to be playing in my spirit when today would be the day we know Jesus went to the cross for our sins, the sins of the world all the while yet being a grand display of the love of God toward us and our atonement with God.

God I thank you for that atonement provided at calvary. I praise your name! Thank you for your son Jesus!

Its just something about the cross that can take you right back to being thankful for what God saved us from and eternal place in hell for a place in Glory with Him.

Hallelujah!!!!

May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ.
2 Thessalonians 3:5 NASB

Everytime we are lead to the cross, to His word, called by His spirit to come closer, fast to die off the old ma and put on more of him. He is gently directing our hearts to lean on Him, trust in Him. For He is a good, good father! (Yes another song referance…lol)

It is in that we leard to become more rooted and grounded and not so all over the place. Pastor Juanita Gibbs had me pegged so well when I first came into the ministry I am in now. I was all over the place on the hunt for anything to make me feel something from God deep on the inside.

I was on youtube listening to teachings, I was in different churches, revivals, I was in books of all kinds looking to satisfy a deep craving within that could only be filled by the truth of Gods word.

It is in coming to find God through Christ in the provided word that will bring about steadfastness in my life. His word is solid. It will be here through the ages for it cannot perish. Now that is saying something.

It is in His word where I need to be anchored, rooted, steadfast, unwaivering, and unmoved when things happen in this life. For things will happen its all in how I get through them that will make a difference.

You will feel Him drawing you closer, dont ignore it. Keeping the word of God close to implant it in our hearts can and will make a differencr in our life. As I look to implant more of it I want it to change my life the more in the time ahead.

Steadfast Faith will keep my mind!

Instability in my thinking is like waves on the ocean.

Thinking my wrong thoughts is like riding a surf board in hurricane.

Here is why…

My thoughts 9x out of 10 are of my own logic, reasoning, or emotions which all come from the deep abyss in my soul in places yet to be healed that errupt like volcanos under the water causing tsunami’s of waves in my mind.

I allow my thoughts from my soul to rule me and direct me for so long it was evident I was a soul-lead person when coming to a church that was full of true and genuine spirit-lead leadership.

God used them to lovingly help open my eyes to this truth and begin to provide tools to make the shift from soul-lead to spirit-lead.

Have I made the transition?

No!

But, I have in some things. I am not where I was and not yet where I hope to be, but with the grace and mercy of God and patience with my process it will continue throughout my journey in the faith.

Yes it gets hard at times when it is easy for me to throw my hands in the air and scream “i quit”. But, that is my soul loosing is hold as the spirit will whisper “hold on”.

What a war in my inner most being it is, but its up to me to fight the good fight of faith. No one else can battle what is inside of me but me. Yes, others have and continue to pray for me and that is vital.

But the dirty work of rolling my sleeves up and sifting through my thoughts is my job.

The more I sift out the bad by renewing in the truth of Gods word. Peace can come and my inner most being can learn to be calmer than its ever been. This also takes me fully and completly trusting in the Lord and taking Him at His word to bring forth a steady mind by use of faith.

“The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You. “Trust in the Lord forever, For in God the Lord , we have an everlasting Rock.
Isaiah 26:3‭-‬4 NASB

⚓Faith in God⚔

Faith in the one true God can change your outlook!

You know what…

God is a God who won’t lie, so why is it so hard to fathom that, that is a true statement?

We associate God with the ways of humanity. Well I can say I have! If people cannot keep their word or they tell obsecene lies then how can I trust in a God who says out the gate that He is a God who cannot lie. Isn’t that what people say also? I didn’t lie to you, etc.

But to even have faith I must trust in what is unseen. At salvation as Pastor Juanita Gibbs told us that it was an act of trust in our part to believe God took away our sins when we in invited Jesus to live in our spirit and cleanse our human spirit.

How now I need to pull from that level of trust to believe that God is a God who won’t lie and is above the thoughts and minds of his creation. The creator has the big picture view, where we don’t. Its that free will that He has given us to trust and believe in Him.

In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
Hebrews 6:17‭-‬20 NASB

It is this hope and the trust and faith in God that will anchor my soul to a steadfast and immovable source that is forever unchanging, forever loving, forever merciful, forever graceful, and forever the same down through the ages.

My soul needed the surgery of the word as Pastor brought out last night that Hebrews 4:12 is the surgery of the soul that brings forth transformation in a life.

That has been very needful to set me on the path of not just soul cleansing, but in the proper path of faith. True and genuine faith, unwaivering faith and not being tossed around by the doctrines of man, but in the pure word of God.

Lets learn to have true and genuine faith in God! It changes things!
