Faith is the Force of Life

Faith is the Force of Life

Faith reminds me of the force of the wind. You can’t visibly see the wind, but you can see its impact.  You can hear it and feel its force, but you can’t stop it.  The wind can be a powerful, destructive force that devastates everything in its path, or it can be utilized for electricity and refreshing.  It blows away the stagnant air.  Who knows where it comes from?

Faith is like the force of wind, but we know where it comes from.  The Scripture says in Romans 10:17, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing from the Word of God.”  The force of faith in action always brings results.  Your faith can have negative or positive results depending on whom you listen to: God or the enemy.  Faith will impact your life one way or the other.  What are you doing with your faith?

Romans 12:3

“God has given to every man the measure of faith.”

Practical Application and Assignments:

While the force of faith can move mountains of unbelief and destroy the works of satan, doubt is faith in reverse that can make a mountain out of a mole hill. Jesus said, “Have faith in God…Those things that you desire, when you pray believe that you receive them and you shall have them.” Mark 11:22-24

  • Study Hebrews, chapter 11. The word, “faith” appears twenty three times in this one chapter. The first verse states, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Now faith is! If it is not now, you do not believe. Hope is the future tense. Faith operates in the present. Faith says, “I believe now.” Hope says, “Maybe someday.”
  • Confess and claim God’s promises. Praise God in advance with confidence that the answer is on the way.
  • Give your questions to God and keep on believing. The greatest faith trusts His sovereignty…So read God’s Word every day. May the force of faith be with you!

“Without faith it is impossible to please Him.” Hebrews 11:6
