Where will your faith take you?...
Faith we all say that we have it and that is the very reason that we say that we believe in Jesus. But where is your faith leading you? When was the last time that you really believed that your faith grew or changed? Do you think that faith has a ceiling and once it reaches that point you cant go any further? How far has your faith gone?
Think about the day that you first used your faith. It might be the day that your earthly father or mother told you to jump to them from the edge of the pool. They were calling you out to trust them that they would catch you and not let your drown. You looked at them and then you trusted them and jumped. You learned something that day. You learned that you could trust have faith in your father or mother. Over the years that trust (faith) would grow and you would trust them for more and more. Sometimes your faith in your mother and father may have been well broken because they were not able to complete the task that they asked you to trust them in. That’s okay they are human, and well sometimes we fall. There will be another day that your faith will be called on and you will have to have faith in them again.
When we talk about faith, we of course think of Jesus and the faith that we have in Him. Is your faith growing? Are you trusting Him and showing Him you have faith in Him? Faith has to be worked out and used for it to grow. In Matthew 17:20 Jesus had this to say to His disciples. 20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. ’”
I always feel good when I read this verse, because even His disciples did not always get it right. They needed to be encouraged and pushed forward. So I feel like I am not failing completely when I don’t have enough faith. It also encourages me to keep going! There is always something more for me to learn and for me to see. Faith has no ceiling and if it did then you would have to say that the ceiling would be to move mountains from one spot to another. So when you think about your faith be encouraged, for we all have room to grow and to see our faith become something truly wonderful. Never stop looking for ways to grow your faith and your relationship with God!
