New Year Focus – Faith

leap-of-faith

 

Best resolution for 2015:  > FAITH 🙂

Greek for faith is   πίστις  pistis (pē’-stēs)

[Romans 10:17 NIV] “17 faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”

Faith is not something we can increase.  Only God can increase our faith.   The method used is by the word of God.  The more you are exposed to God’s word in reading and hearing the more you can receive faith from God.  There is a difference between faith and belief.  Faith only comes from God ( Hebrews 12:2Romans 12:3, Ephesians 2:8)  Belief comes from our experience and observation.  We do believe in God because of our experience with Him but FAITH is s a driving force from God that brings new revelations and  expectations of divine blessings.

 Obstacles to faith

Ignoring God’s word for escape reading,  too much social media, too much focus on body and money.  Let faith arise in 2015.  Get a bible reading plan. Many apps are available.   YouVersion is good or just google “bible reading apps”.  Everyday spend some time reading or listening to God’s word.  Your faith, hope, heart, relationships, attitudes, outlook for the future will be blessed.   [Hebrews 11:6 NIV] “6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Question:  What activity is fighting against daily Bible reading?  Know the struggle is from our fleshly desires and Satan’s tricks. Be tough and just DO IT.

Question:   How would you rate faith in your life?  Zero – 10?  Growing faith reduces fears.  Read and believe. God will give you stronger faith.
