Have Faith

Matthew 14:31   (KJV)   31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

It’s our sincere prayer and deep desire for us to be men and women of faith—not just any faith, but a big, strong faith. That’s the kind of faith we as God’s growing children ought to have. A mustard seed-sized kind of faith is enough, just not any smaller. A mustard seed-matthew-14-31-have-faithsized faith in our Lord is enough to move mountains. We live by faith, not by sight, not in doubt. It doesn’t matter how bad situations are, we know that we know: our God handles them with no problem.

That’s it, for God no situation is a problem situation; situations are only problems to us—the limited us. But our trust is in the Lord. He created the entire universe. That’s why it’s easy for us to believe He can part the mighty seas; He can bring the dead back from the grave; He can heal the sick; He can walk on water; He can deliver us from any and every bondage; He can save us from and through any situation.

Doubt is a natural result of no faith or little faith. It indirectly magnifies the problem and assaults God’s ability. It is doubt in God Himself. But why doubt the Almighty, All-wise and All-present? God can make us walk on water; He can make us fly above the most trying and most adverse of situations. He can make us overcome and rise above whatever problem or difficulty we’re facing even now. We don’t doubt Him. There’s no need to look at the bigness of our problems because we’re focused on the bigness of our God.  Is there really anything, any situation, any enemy, any hardship, any trouble that God is unable to safely carry us through? We all know the answer. That’s why despite all the scorching heat of trials coming from unbelieving people and fallen world, despite the winds and waves brought by powerful storms of life, we live in untouchable and immovable inner peace.
