FAITH IN GOD WITH A HEART OF THANKSGIVING
In the Church today we hear so much about faith and living the life of faith. Do you know why most people can’t exercise true faith? Because they don’t have their mind and their imagination under control. The Bible says that… 1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1.
Do you remember how you felt when you were very young, and your birthday approached? You were excited and anxious. You knew you would certainly receive gifts and other special treats. But some things would be a surprise. Birthdays combine assurance and anticipation, and so does Faith! Faith is the confidence based on past experience that God’s new and fresh surprise will surely be ours.
Two words describe faith: Confidence and Assurance. These two qualities need a secure beginning and ending point. The beginning point of Faith is believing in God’s character—He is Who He says. The end point is believing in God’s promises—He will do what He says when we believe that will fulfill His promises even though we don’t see those promises materializing yet, we demonstrate true faith.
What if we spent time each day in giving thanks through prayer? “Lord, teach us to offer You a heart of thanksgiving and praise in all of our daily experiences of life. Teach us to be joyful always, to pray continually and to give thanks in all our circumstances. We accept them as Your Will for our life.
In everything give thanks: for this is the Will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
~1 Thess. 5:18.
REMINDER: FAITH IN GOD WITH A HEART OF THANKSGIVING!!!!
Love you and the Blessings of God be upon you
