Thoughts Of Devotion:
If there is anything we should desire is to grow in our faith 2016. The Lord has prepared other dimensions of faith for us, even when we feel that our situation is impossible. There are moments in life where we can feel incompetent facing difficult and impossible situations around us. This reminds me of the possessed boy’s father that heard Jesus and cried out in a loud voice, in Mark 9:24, “Immediately the boy’s father cried out and said, I believe, help my unbelief.” No one was able to help him, even the disciples of Jesus fail to liberate the young man from his oppression.
How many times do we feel that our faith is mixed with doubt! On one hand we believe in God, but if we are honest, doubt on the other hand dwells in our hearts and minds. What can we do to get out of this dilemma? The Bible shows us the way out, His Word! Faith only comes to us when the Word of God takes root in our hearts and minds. His Word will make the difference between faith and unbelief. Through the Word our lives will be transformed, “because the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart “(Hebrews 4:12).
His Word is living and active! When we immerse ourselves in it, our lives are transformed from the depths of our being. We will not be the same; the effect of His Word will be displayed through the fruit it gives. The fruit and result is faith, faith, and more faith. We will be able to experience another level of faith and security like we’ve never experienced before. Praise God for that! Let us pray this morning that we may be those who hear His Word daily. That we would never neglect our time in His Word. The Lord has left it for us in order for us to get to another level of faith.
