And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6 New International Version
When we are babes in the Christian faith it is only natural to have limited faith in Jehovah, we do not have that much experience with Him.
As we progress in our relationship with Him we mature in our attitude and behavior. This is done through the Holy Spirits guidance.
However there is one aspect which is our sole responsibility and that is faith. The longer we walk with Christ the more we see His divine power and blessings in our lives. This should strengthen our faith in Him. If in spite of that we do not grow stronger in our faith that is an insult to Jehovah.
Do not be like the ancient Israelites who were nothing more than whine puppies for forty years. Even though they had numerous times witnessed Jehovahs provision and protection they still lacked faith when it counted.
I know there are times when my faith is lacking and I cry out unto my Beloved for forgiveness and to bless me with strength. He always obliges.
The physical rewards we are blessed with are not to be our prime concern but rather the spiritual ones are. If you are only concerned with worldly desires being fulfilled by Jehovah you are not mature in your walk. Because Jehovah is spirit our rewards are a deeper understanding of Him, a deeper respect for Him, a deeper obedience unto Him, a deeper love for Him and a deeper desire to grow ever deeper into Jehovahs sphere of love. These are spiritual and far surpass anything in the physical.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah (The Lord is Present) for blessing me with Your continuous presence.
Thank you for blessing me with this revelation so as to build my faith into a strong tower to protect me when the storms of life come crashing around me.
Thank you for blessing me with this blessing to build my faith so as to use Your all powerful shield to protect me when the wicked ones fire their fiery darts at me. I praise You in the name of He who taught His disciples to have strong faith Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
