Because of Faith (Part 2)

faithitWhat is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope
for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.
So, you see, it is impossible to please God without faith.
Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that there
is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
Hebrews 11:1, 6 tlb

Your faith in God today is your lifeline to His heartbeat. Faith is the hand that reaches up and takes hold of God’s promises and gathers in the spiritual treasures that are found in Christ. Faith sees the sunshine of God’s face, even when there are dark clouds all around.

It is quite an experience the first time someone flies in a plane. The sky may be covered with dark clouds, but soon after takeoff, the plane breaks through the clouds. The passenger quickly discovers
that the sky is still blue and the sun is still shining, even though things look quite differently below.

What things are possible for you today through faith? All things are possible, because your faith is in the God who knows no impossibilities.

  • When the things that you are experiencing don’t make sense, faith says, “God knows what He is doing.”
  • When your resources don’t match your need, faith says, “God is my
    provider.”
  • When you are fearful to take the next step, faith says, “God will not
    fail me.”
  • When you’re not sure what to do next, faith says, “God will guide me.”
  • When you are in a situation that seems impossible, faith says,
    “Nothing is too hard for the Lord.”

When I was a new Christian living in Southern California, I applied to a Bible school in the Midwest. The school accepted my application. Along with the application, the school sent me the date that they wanted me to arrive and start my classes. I bought a plane ticket and started getting things in order. The night before my flight, the local weather forecast reported that the area would be covered with thick fog in the morning. My flight was scheduled to leave early that morning. Instead of worrying about it, I got on my
knees and asked the Lord to lift the fog. By faith, I knew that God would answer that prayer. I told the person who was taking me to the airport that God would lift the fog, and that my flight would not be canceled. The next morning we headed out to the airport under clear skies.

Where will your faith journey with God lead you today? Whatever the step may be, wherever the path may lead, you can be certain that your obedience of faith will always bring you into His best.

Bodie Hodge Speaks About The War on Christmas

139786707_aWorking at a publishing company means being surrounded by books. LOTS of books.
Have I mentioned that I love books?
I also love Christmas.

And as this Christmas approaches, I am understandably reminded of the first book that was shared with me when I was hired last November, The War on Christmas.  Written by Bodie Hodge of Answers in Genesis, it was, and still is, one of the most incredible books on Christmas I’ve ever read.   If you’ve ever had questions about the changes in Christmas traditions and beliefs throughout history, you would probably feel the same.  War on Christmas answered questions I didn’t even know I had and from the first time I picked it up, I wanted to know more. Recently I was finally granted an opportunity to ask Bodie Hodge a few of my many questions. Continue Reading →
