Where your faith is at………What do you have Faith in? And why do we believe what we do?

So where’s your faith today? Or what is it IN? That’s my pondering for this morning. You know I didn’t just have faith in God automatically, nor was I willing to risk my neck (or life) Over what some “Person” told me.  

Why would we ever do such a thing? The first time I ever did it, I did it out of love. Yes, Love. I did love a person enough, to follow him around just because he said things would be okay.  And they were not okay. I looked back at my life one day, and I’d heard a lot of sermons about faith, and taking risks for the sake of Jesus, and seeing miracles happen. I realized Faith based outcomes involve risk. 

So I left my job and moved to a new place, trusting God about the outcome. That was in 1989. It is the first time I can remember saying “Okay Father, I am putting myself and my children, in your hands.” Want to know what happened? Our rental caught fire! Everything I used to get to that place “burned up” In a moment’s time. 

Then I cried, then I watched God take care of us, and then watched him restore me, and we were okay. Faith walks can often be a bumpy ride. We have to decide if we are going to KEEP BELIEVING in Spite of what we see! Do we believe, or don’t we? And why? What has shaped your faith? We all have a measure of faith. Are we believing for good things to happen, or bad things? And have we placed our faith in people, or in God Almighty? And are we letting him do it his way, or insisting he do it our way? That is the question! (something to ponder today).

God’s not into Magic but he does do Miracles…..

God is not into Magic, but Miracles. even in the case of Pharaoh, he could not
change Pharaoh’s Heart. Why?
 
Because Pharaoh had his own mind and he had authority over his own soul life.
He chose to become hardened and not to get softened at the words of the Lord, which came to him Via Moses.
The plagues were a result of His rejection of God’s words. satan always wants to do damage (steal, kill and destroy) it’s his mission. When he sees an un-surrendered person he always wants to go after them with vile passion and vengeance thinking the best way to hurt God, is to kill off his people.
Therefore, the way the Old testament is written (the way it presents things) “I set before you life and death” God said in Deut. CHOOSE LIFE!
What we choose is what brings the results. God results or the devils results. Because of people only partially understanding the OT that is why we have floods, fire and such, listed as “acts of God” to this day” ….which is a very big lie that needs to be rectified by the way. God does miracles. He works with willing people. They will receive if they will listen and they will be a blessing..…..
They will declare words of life or death…….Sometimes yes Prophets even have to
say “Your table will become a snare” and that is not speaking a curse.
It’s facing the reality of what a person has chosen, and granting them what they wish.
Their hearts desire is to reject and resist God and be full of their own ways. God in his
infinite mercy and wisdom, grants them their request. does he like it?
NO But he
is a realist.
He’s not a fantasizer. He is a realist with the greatest Love and Faith
we have ever known (or not yet known) ……God is so great! SO Unimaginably full
of great thoughts toward his children. he just wants us to receive it all!
oh how my heart hurts for this who will not (receive him) and his blessings.
Magic is another story altogether. It’s a fantasy (a lie) that a person changes from one thing to another without growing without receiving and without allowing themselves to be redeemed.
We want to see frogs turned into princes. But it’s not going to happen not unless the toad cries out “Father have mercy on me a sinner” …………………………So, no free rides for toads.
They will have to surrender (cry for mercy) and truly mean it before a just and Holy God…..who is Fair, Loving, Kind yes but not a pushover, and certainly not a God we can “con” Or get anything past Him…
