Faith Works

“Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.”   – Mark 5:36 NLT

What works for you, may have to be modified for me.  It doesn’t mean that method will not work, it just means I may need to increase my belief.  Healing is for both the healer and the one who is sick.  That means, they are both expecting the same miracle on two different fronts. On the one side, prayer is expecting God to perform a miracle and lift the one who is in that bed of affliction out.  So it does require both of them to have at least a mustard seed of true faith in the miraculous power of God.  It takes faith to move mountains. You and I already have doubt built in our flesh, so it is not hard to fall into disbelief.  It is more difficult to just let go and let God do the difficult tasks.  Faith seen is not faith.  I had to have faith God would support my move for the first time in California and He did just what I believed in less time than I expected.  I asked for three days and nights at my big brothers home and the Lord expedited my situation in 2 days and one night.  We had a home, food and money within 2 to 3 days of being in a new city/state.   God is immediate, the more we are immediate towards Him. People don’t trust God because they do not see Him.  That should be the real reason we lean on Him because He is not walking around in flesh mode trying to wheel and deal on our behalf. The more we visualize our struggle the more we doubt it will ever be.  If you watch a boiling pot, it won’t boil fast enough for you.  The minute you turn your head to do something else is when you hear it.  So you have to have ears that hear before you have eyes that see.  If you see the miraculous happen before your Spirit can empower your belief you won’t have anything to give to it because you were trying to perceive before understanding.  It is working for your good because He will not leave you destitute or alone.  Take faith with you first and everything else will work itself out.
