BIBLE MEDITATION: ?So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.? Romans 10:17
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have so much faith, others have weak faith, and some have no faith at allí Is God unfair? No, God is no respecter of persons (see 2 Chronicles 19:7). He has given to every man a measure of faith (see Romans 12:3). And so, what is faith? Let me first say what it is not. Faith is not positive thinking or optimism. It is not a feeling that you can do something. It is not a hunch or looking on the sunny side of the street. Faith is getting a word from God and acting upon it. You see, you can get a word from God and believe that word, that is belief. But, when you act upon it, that is faith. Faith is belief with legs on it. Today is the day that you put your foot of faith upon the promises of God and say, ?That promise is mine!?
ACTION POINT: Most ministries like Love Worth Finding have a statement of faith ? a list of beliefs to which they ascribe. Take some time this week to do the same for yourself. Start each sentence with ?I believe…? Some topics you will want to cover are salvation, the nature of God, faith, God?s Word.
