When Your Store of Faith is Nearly Depleted

Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality.  He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to Him and get what He is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help. (Hebrews 4:14-16 The Message)

As with anything of spiritual value, faith is the key to receiving.person sitting under tree in the fall

But what happens when your faith is sagging?

Are you disqualified from being blessed?

No! When your store of faith seems depleted, return to your Source.

Those we consider the strongest in faith rely heavily on the Father to fortify and guide them.

God is just fine with that.

His Word urges us to come to Him with all our needs.

What are some of your needs?

Faith Must Always Produce a Work.

…And by works faith was made perfect (James 2:22 NKJV).

We can “talk” faith, but if we don’t have any fruit following it, we have not brought forth what God wants—our faith has not been perfected.

Sometimes we are so involved in our own little family that we forget Jesus was sent to feed the whole world. We are a part of not only a spiritual revival, but also a physical renewal. We cannot say to hungry children, “Be fed,” and then let them starve to death. Faith must always produce a work.Faith must always produce a work.

We cannot merely go around saying, “The Word works.” We must act like the Word works; then it will produce fruit. One night I was murmuring over a situation. My son Mike said, “Mother, you say that what things you desire when you pray, believe that you will receive them, and you shall have them. Have you really prayed for your need? If so, then don’t you really believe that you will have it?”

The Word was like an arrow to my heart. I then repented to the Father and my family for murmuring.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We come to You in Jesus’s name. We thank You that the Word is working in us and that we are not just “talking the Word, but also acting the Word. We are not “make-believers,” we are believers making the Word work. The you, Father, that you are perfecting our faith today.

In Jesus’s name.

Amen
