Crisis of faith……


“And Moses said, “The people whom I am among are six hundred thousand men on foot;

yet You have said, ‘I will give them meat, that they may eat for a whole month.

 

Shall flocks and herds be slaughtered for them, to provide enough for them? Or shall all the fish of the

sea be gathered together for them, to provide enough for them?

 

And the Lord said to Moses, “Has the Lord’s arm been shortened?

Now you shall see whether what I say will happen to you or not.”

Numbers 11:21-23

 

“And the Lord said to Moses, “Has the Lord’s arm been shortened?”

 

What are you trusting God for today? Are you moving forward in faith

or are you in doubt?

Things have been crazy in my country at the moment. There have been fuel shortages and an increase of

prices on commodities. I remember going to the shops and looking at the prices and

getting a bit fearful. Memories of 2008 came flooding in! It’s happening again I thought.

But after getting home I got into my word and reminded myself of God’s promises of protection,

provision and favor in the situation I find myself.

I could talk about how bad things are in my country but it’s happening every where!

The systems of the world are crumbling and falling apart.

Everything is decaying and degrading.

Everything is corroding and falling to pieces.

But that doesn’t mean I should stop trusting YAH to accomplish everything He promised me.

His blessings and faithfulness are not dependent on what’s happening around me.

No matter how crazy things are He is asking me the same thing He asked Moses,

No matter how hard things are in your life at the moment He is also asking you the same

thing,

 

“The Lord said to Moses, Has the Lord’s hand (His ability and power) become short

(thwarted and inadequate)?”

 

Moses had a crisis of faith when YAH said He would feed the people meat

for a whole month. He simply couldn’t fathom how He would do it but YAH

knew what He would do. Moses would never have guessed how it would happen

and we need to realize that we can’t even begin to fathom His greatness.

In the midst of impossible odds He will make a way for you.

The truth is this,

 

His hand is not too short!

 

He can and will help you and answer your prayer no matter how impossible

it seems. No matter how crazy the circumstances around you seem He will

save you, He will deliver you. His hand is not too short!

Don’t be afraid to pray those bold prayers of healing, breakthrough,

restoration and the list goes on. Don’t hold back.

Trust Him because He will make a way for you!

His hand is not too short….ever!

 

Blessings to you friends

Is the issue really about faith…..???!!!


The apostles came up and said to the Master,”Give us more faith.”                             But the Master said, “You don’t need more faith. There is no ‘more’ or ‘less’ in faith. if you have a bare kernel of faith, say the size of a poppy seed, you could say to this sycamore tree, ‘Go jump in the lake’, and it would do it.  Luke 17:5,6

Faith as small as a poppy seed!!!!!!

This is a very interesting verse. I have been meditating on it for a few days. Why did the disciples ask Jesus for more faith? Maybe they saw all the miracles been done by Jesus and thought they couldn’t match up? Whatever the reason, they asked. I was very intrigued by Jesus answer. He didn’t tell them to read more of the word to get more faith, or pray harder. He told them they didn’t need more faith!

We know from the word that everyone is given a measure of faith:

For through the grace given to me I say to every one among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgement, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith. Romans 12:3

So what does Jesus mean in Luke 17:5,6??? This is what I think He means. He is saying that you have enough faith for whatever situation you are going through. The faith you have can raise people from the dead! Let me rephrase that. The faith we have been given can raise the dead, heal the sick, make a difference in this world. The faith we have is enough but why are we not seeing the results that Jesus had? Why are we still in debt or in sickness and all the other ‘bad’???? Why doesn’t the sick person we pray for get healed? Why does it seem at times like God, has ignored us?

It’s amazing to think that the faith we have is enough to get us out of the storms and trials we face. No matter how small your faith may seem, know that it is sufficient.  But the question still needs to be answered, why are the results not manifesting?

Doubt and fear are two of the main things that kill faith. They are not the only things but they are two of the main things. You cannot operate in faith when you are fearful or in doubt! You cannot operate in faith if you are speaking negatively over your storm, “I am broke”, “I am going to die of this sickness”, “I will never be rich”, “everything I do collapses”, “I am not good at anything”, “I will never get married”, “I will not be able to send my kids to school”………… You cannot operate in faith when you are talking like that. You cannot operate in faith if you don’t believe in God. Murmuring and complaining will kill your faith. This is just a small list of things that will kill your faith.

What do we need to do to experience the results Jesus experienced? What are we supposed to do if we are going to see that mountain move or the sycamore tree jump in the lake? We need to protect our faith. One way of doing that is by reading the word. The word of God will strengthen our faith. The word will strengthen your faith.

You have enough faith to face the storms that come your way. You have enough faith to accomplish what God has called you to do. No matter how small you think your faith is, you have the potential to change the world. No matter how small you think your faith is, know that you can get out of the storm. Your faith is enough………..

What an amazing thought!!!!
