More than ever we need to walk by faith. And as we come to the end of 2020 and enter 2021
I believe God has amazing plans and new things in store for us but we can only receive those
things by faith. We are not going to achieve God’s plans for our lives by our flesh. The only way we are
going to do it is by faith.
But our faith is under attack. The enemy doesn’t want us to walk by faith. He wants us to be in fear, anxiety,
doubt and so many other things. And with that I want to touch on two things that can stop us from
walking by faith.
- Make sure you don’t let someone else’s lack of faith determine your faith.
There is so much negativity around us. So many people are negative because of the things that are happening
but if you are going to walk by faith you need to be careful who and what you are listening to, and what you are
There are a lot of things in the world if accepted that can hurt your faith.
A perfect example of this is found in the story of the Israelites when they were at the door of the promise
land. They sent out twelve spies who went to spy out the land. When they came back only two people,
Joshua and Caleb were fully convinced God had given the enemy over to them. They were ready to go
claim what God promised them but the other ten spies saw things very differently. They were fearful,
and they doubted God and because of their lack of faith they influenced an entire nation to reject what
God promised them! That is a sobering thought.
How different it would have been if they listened to Joshua and Caleb.
What narrative are you following?
The world has a narrative it wants you to follow that is contrary to the narrative God has.
The only narrative you should be following is what God has told you and shown you in His Word
and times you have spent with Him in prayer.
2. For faith to work make sure you are looking at what God has and what He can do instead of
looking at what man has. If you base your faith on what man has, you will limit yourself and your faith.
God is the One you should be looking to always. He has everything you need.
He sees the whole picture and knows what is best for you. Resolve in your hearts to look to Him
more as you enter 2021.
God has amazing things in store for you.
It’s time to crank up your faith dial to a hundred and you do that by getting into His word and by spending
more time with Him. He wants to give you everything He has prepared for you so get rid of the things
that are stopping you from trusting Him fully. It’s not going to be easy but the journey is worth it.
Keep trusting Him always!
