Food For Thought!
R W. Shambach, a great preacher of faith and power, would say,
"You don't have any worries, all you need is faith in God."
In other words, if you truly, truly believe God is All-Powerful, then, what is there to fear? Why the anxiety? Taking it further, if you say you are a Christian and not living by faith, you are living a lie. Faith is living in obedience to God's word and his voice. You see, if you say God has all-power and all-wisdom, why would you make decisions that defy or are in contradiction of his word?
Hmmm. Truth is, we allow our natural senses to distract us. We live by what we see, which is contrary to what God says.
For example, like me, I had fallen for a woman and I wanted to marry her. Right colour, right shape, accepted me as the man, yet God said, "Don't do it Lammie." Even though I didn't want to let go...I did! Thank God! I would be living in misery today. I took a step of faith and walked in the truth. God knew that womans's heart. Faith is the truth as we align ourselves with God. God is truth and real. He decides life for all of us. This is his world; this is his matrix. Things don't just happen. Most people live according to their flesh and feelings i. e. what they can see, hear, and feel. They actually believe they decide life.
They run after money and success.
They fornicate and commit adultery.
They lie and deceive to get their way.
It's not real and only leads to bad choices, curses, and alienation from God or truth.
Just saying, " most of us live in a make-believe world" blows most people's mind.
"You mean the world I live in is not real?" Crazy!!
Well, just think about the many times you have been lied to, cheated on, misinformed etc. etc. Our thoughts or spiritual world comes from two sources: God and Satan. One of them will be your world. Satan's world is filled with ignorance, lies, and deception. Gods world...faith....truth.
The world you live in determines your lifestyle. Real people live by faith...
They deny self.
They embrace their crosses.
They follow Christ.
They walk in wisdom.
Fake people follow their flesh and live for the moment.
They always have excuses for disobedience, never take responsibility for their actions. They are the victim and it's always someone else's fault.
Real people are unselfish. They love. They care about others. They take responsibility for their actions and repent.
Fake people only think about themselves and what benefits them. They are vindictive and hateful. They never repent and lie to cover their tracks. Most people will only find out after death that God's word is true.
Every one lives and dies to the Lord...everyone.
Most people choose to be a hypocrites and live phony lives in their make-believe world. They refuse to live by faith. Faith fills them with fear. They fear losing what they have: their money, reputation, and status. Truth is they are living a lie and have nothing. Faith gives us everything because it connects us to the source of the universe and the power of the creative or living word.
There is nothing impossible to him that believes.
Nothing! I challenge you to come out from among them and live by faith just like those who inherited the promises before us.
"For we walk by faith, not by sight." (2 Corinthians 5:7)
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." (Hebrews 11:6)
