Faith 041313

Good morning everyone. This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. There is something that is ringing in my spirit that I have to share. It’s not something that is going to give each individual a warm fuzzy feeling; in fact it may cut some deeply. But it is biblically sound. Stay around for the healing part.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come to you this morning to make a profession, Your word is truth and sometimes it cuts like a double edged sword. Although it cuts it also heals. I stand before you on behalf of myself and my brothers and sisters in Christ when I say thank you for your mercy, grace and Love. Thank you for salvation through Jesus and most of all Your word. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Faith Experiences

These have come so that your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. – 1 Peter 1:7

This is something that I have come to know as truth as I continue my faith walk. One of the great tragedies of the Christian life is that if we fail to enter into a relationship with God that is born of the Holy Ghost, we are left with a religion, not a relationship. Many people today live with an intellectual belief in God, but without a relationship that is based on two-way communication. This is the greatest tragedy of all. It’s like having a banquet to prepare for and no way to cook the food. It can’t be eaten until it has been prepared properly. It’s only provisions that can’t be called a banquet until it is prepared by the proper cooking of the individual items.

In the bible Peter tells us that until our faith is proved genuine, we will never be able to give praise, glory, and honor to Jesus, because until such testing He will not be revealed in our lives. Peter describes this in the verse before: “In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials” (1 Pet. 1:6). Trials are designed to bring us to a level of trust and experience with God that we would never know otherwise. These “faith experiences” with God allow us to know firsthand the faithfulness of God, the love of God, and the personal nature of God. If you can’t recount several times in your life when God has met you personally, then chances are your faith has not been born of the Holy Ghost into a living relationship with God. It’s easy to fall prey to a relationship to God that never experiences His real presence; rather, it is based on knowledge only. This is a tragic place to be.

If this is where you have been in your Christian experience, ask God today to make Himself real to you. Ask Him to show you His personal nature and love. It’s His desire to do this. Those whom He has called know His voice. He will show Himself to those who are His. “He who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and show Myself to him” (John 14:21).

Quote of the Day

The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved – loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
