Hebrews 11:6 ESV
And without faith it is impossible to please HIM, for whoever would draw near to GOD must believe that HE exists and that He rewards those who seek HIM.
Ephesians 6:16 ESV
In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;
"It's your faith!" These are words the LORD spoke to me recently. I shared with you the importance of us holding fast to our faith and how faith is what is needed to please GOD. Yet, this weekend I received a revelation. Not that it was not there all along. Not that I had not read or even taught from this scripture before. Yet, as I sat in services on Sunday and the preacher delivered the word, Ephesians 6:16 practically jumped out of the page at me. Then these words....Faith is the key!
It is the key to pleasing GOD and it is the key to destroying the enemy of our souls. The word of GOD tells us that our faith will extinguish all of the darts (weapons, plots, ploys, plans, etc.) of the enemy. Not some of them, but all of them. So by faith, speak the word of GOD over your life. Your faith is counted unto you as righteousness, just as the men and women of old. By faith, continue to walk according to GOD's direction. By faith pack the boxes, complete the business plan, purchase the website. Whatever GOD has told you to do, do it. Even if HIS instructions are to be still. Then be still. When we are still, HE's moving. It often takes more faith to be still, than it does to make a move. Whatever GOD is calling you to have faith for, trust HIM and believe! Take HIM at HIS word. HE won't fail you!
