Is Your Faith Evident to God?

faith 2

Luke 5:20 (NIV)

20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”

 

Do you know what moves God?  Despite what people might think, God is not moved by complaining and self-pity.  He is not even moved by our own personal needs or agendas.  Yes God is concerned about our needs and He wants to meet our needs, but we have to do our part and invite Him to work in our lives.  The best way to do this is by exercising our faith.

When Jesus walked the earth, He would often make some remark about a person’s faith right before he healed whatever ailment they were experiencing.  As we see in Luke 5:20, Jesus forgave the person after He saw their faith.

So the question we should be asking ourselves is: Is our faith evident to God?

When God sees us doing everything we can to get well; when He can see us getting to work a little earlier because we really want that promotion; when He sees us bite our tongues to keep the peace in our homes; when God see us help others when we really need more help than they do; when God sees our faith, that’s when extraordinary things will begin to happen in our lives.

Faith opens the door for God to move in our lives.  So let’s all work on demonstrating our faith today and watch the hand of God move in every area of our lives.

God, thank You for all the gifts You give us.  Thanks for giving us something that we can believe in.  We know Your promises are good and You will never desert us.  We choose today to exercise our faith and let the whole world see that we’re trusting You.  Keep us close to You.  Search our hearts and remove anything that is displeasing to You.  Lord, bless us today in Your Son’s name.  Amen.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
