What Do You Put Your Faith In?


     As born-again believers in this age that we live in, it can sometimes be a little to easy to lose sight of the miracle-working power of God! The world we live in is so fast-paced and filled with so many conveniences (and I thank God for it) that we become complacent in our faith.  I believe that this is the master plan of the devil.  If he can have us to doubt God, he can then also have us ultimately turning on God without even realizing what we have done.

      The Bible declares that in the fifth chapter of the Gospel of John, 5"Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?7 The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”8 Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” 9 And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked."

      What we see in the story is that the man almost had faith in God. We see he had his faith in an angel that could “trouble” the water, and he had his faith in man whom could place them in the water.   However, we see that when he finally was able to meet Jesus all he had to do was take the word of Jesus in verse eight, and he took up his bed and he walked!  

     Jesus says in the eleventh chapter and the twenty-sixth verse of the gospel of Mark, “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” 

     All it takes is faith!  When we place our faith solely upon Jesus, then all things truly are possible!  That’s where deliverance plays a crucial role in the spiritual health of a Christian. When the things that are tormenting you are removed, doubt and unbelief included, then and only then can you begin to walk in the freedom that God alone can give through our savior and master Jesus Christ!  Always remember, Jesus would not have died for your freedom from all sickness, diseases, heartaches if He didn’t think you were worth it!  Anyway, I hope this encourages you in your walk with the Lord as it’s just one man's opinion. 


God Bless You,
