GROWING IN CHRIST

"Faith"

Date published: 01/24/2010

Psalm 62:6 “He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.” (NIV)

These words are so easy to say until the ground beneath you begins to shake and your world begins to come down around you. How can your proclamation of faith be translated into reality? Luke 16:10 helps answer this question. "Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.”  Your proclamation of faith in God is strengthened when your faith is a testimonial of God’s activity in the little things of your life. Your faith muscle will be weak and unreliable if you only exercise it when confronted with hardship. On the other hand, your faith muscle is strengthened through the process of sanctification when you give God every part of your life. Your faith in trusting God with the needs and desires of your life allows Him to replace the vacuum left by the world and your desires. Luke 16 goes on to say in verses 11 and 12, “So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?  And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else's property, who will give you property of your own?” When you came to know Christ as your Savior, He entrusted you with a piece of His kingdom. How you live out your daily life represents your management of what God has given you. God will respond to you as you turn your life over to Him and entrust Him for your peace, satisfaction, and abundance. It is out of this type of walk with Christ that you proclaim total faith and reliance upon Him. Don’t wait until you are faced with the insurmountable to experience the hand of God in your life. Trust Him with the little things of your life and He will be your rock and fortress that cannot be shaken!

2 Samuel 22:31-34 “He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him. For Who is God besides the Lord? And Who is the Rock except our God? It is God Who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He enables me to stand on the heights.” (NIV)
