“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.”
Hebrews 11:1-3 NIV
Faith is confidence that we need to believe in what we cannot see
Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it can’t happen
With faith, we need to speak things into existence in our life
Praying , believing , and working to make it happen
During the process of believing what you cannot see
God is already made a way for it to be possible
All you have to do is trust and believe
Apply the action for whatever it is you have hope for
And it will happen
I know some people believe that seeing is believing
But you can believe what you cannot see also
That what makes faith great
Knowing in your heart and mind that something is possible and you know that it is close to happening
It is truly a blessing
Knowing that God is already setting things up for your and have things ready for you
Then walk with you through the process
Have faith today for what ever it is that you are hoping for
“Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.”
In this chapter of scripture we see that Jesus had just finished feeding the five thousand.
And once he finished he told his disciples to continue on while he goes up to the mountain to pray
When Jesus finished praying he was aware of how far the boat was for his disciples to turn around and come back to get him.
It was also a major storm
This is when Jesus caught up to the boat by walking on the water.
It’s important for us to spend that alone time we need with God
I know our daily lives can have us busy because we have so much to do
Or if you’re pursuing your own business
But Jesus gives us the example that God will catch you up to where you are supposed to be in life.
When we have a lot to do and become more successful, we forget to add that time in with God because we don’t want to get behind on something.
But God will never allow us to fall behind, especially if we are giving our time to him.
If you’re out there and you feel like you are behind or feel like you have to much to do
Add spending some alone time with God on your schedule
I’m not talking about just going to church
But taking a time out everyday to spend with God
You won’t be behind for long.
God will catch you up to where you need to be
Just trust the plans that he has for you and you’ll be right back on schedule.
Jesus connection with God gave him the ability to do the impossible
Which was to walk on water
God will have you do things that you think are impossible to catch you up to where you need to be in life.
The Bible says
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Seeking the kingdom first will add the things to your life that you need to be where you should in life.
First thing first, it’s important to make sure you keep God first in your relationship.
Especially if you both are believers. Putting God first not only by saying but when it comes to decision making, when it comes to being faithful to what God wants you to do, and showing the love to God. When you put God first , you’ll see how much better your relationship becomes. Not saying you’re not going to have problems and disagreements, but God will help you to be understanding and most importantly evaluating yourself. Because at the end of the day, we have control over our actions and the choices we make. Loving God will show in your relationship. If you love God and faithful to him, it will cause you to do the same in your relationship.
⁃ Constant Effort
Never stop showing effort in a relationship. It’s always the small things that can spark up your relationship. Many times we do so many big things and we tend to slow down on the effort because we run out of ideas or you just want to do things big every time. Allow those small effort to build up to those big efforts. Think on your situation. Financially, time , etc. this is why being you and doing the small things matter because we see what others do on social media and get pressured to do something and the time doesn’t line up or finances don’t match. You won’t get so burnt out doing the small things. As I stated, allow those small things to build up to the big things.
Communication is key!
Communication brings so much understanding in anything, especially a relationship. As I stated about the small things when it comes to effort. Communication is that small thing that can change everything. Letting your partner know where you are , where you going, what we eating. It small things like that, especially since we all know life is short and we never know the last time we will see that person. Communication relates to everything whether is a relationship, family , talking to God. Communicate with people. When you don’t it leaves so much room for imagination. You could be out doing good deeds but not communicating what you doing , someone could think you’re in trouble or doing bad things. So communicate!
⁃ Unconditional Love
Love is powerful!
The love God shows us is unconditional. Meaning, despite or past or what we have done, he still loves us more and answer our prayers. Showing that same love in a relationship is major. You’re going to have arguments and disagreements, but that doesn’t mean that things are going wrong. Unconditional love means to not put any limits on love. Love without limits. Do things in your relationship without expecting things in return.
Last but not least, is trust. Without trust the relationship will fail. Trust ties in with everything i have stated. You must trust God in your relationship, you must show yourself to be trustworthy with your efforts, you must trust the power of communication, and trust the power of love. Once you earn that person trust. Don’t break it. Many people have had difficult past situations in which their trust has faded. But showing all the things I have stated will help you to build back up that trust that the person has lost.
