Faith Takes the Next Step

Faith convinces us that God created the world through his word. This means what can be seen was made by something that could not be seen
— Hebrews 11:3

By Nina Roach

God's servants have always been marked by the evidence of their faith. Faith is taking the next step from what you believe that you have received from the Word of God. Did you notice that I didn't say what you know about the Word of God? It's your belief in God and being fully convinced that will cause you to take action. Whatever God has promised to do for you naturally, He has done for already in Christ Jesus. By faith you can obtain a good report, patiently endure hardships and literally change the way you think and live a holy life of honor before God and others.

The great Martin Luther King Jr. once quoted, "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." The same God who used Martin Luther King Jr. is the same God who wants to use you. In the midst of hardships he seized opportunities by taking many steps of faith even when he didn't see the whole picture. He was assured of his next steps because he had been to the spiritual mountaintop and he heard the Words of God, he also saw his dream in the spirit.                                                                                     

Without faith it is impossible to please God. God wants you to respond to His voice. God framed the world by His command. Commands are given through words and applying God's Word is the strategy to frame your world (life, marriage, body, finances, dreams) by saying what God has said. And in order to know what God has said you must daily attend to His Word by reading and listening to it. Jesus Christ is God's Word manifested in the flesh. Hebrews 1:2 tells us that in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom He made the universe.

God is speaking to you today through His Holy Scriptures which gives you the most accurate representation of Himself, and all that He has done for you. Put and keep your trust in God and accomplish your dreams like Martin Luther King Jr. did by faith. You no longer have to wait to receive a good report, you can obtain a good report today! 

Decree It: I believe God and His Word. I am fully convinced that whatever God has promised is what He will do for me, He will do in Christ Jesus. I enter into the promises of God today through faith even when there is no natural evidence of the truth.
