Faith that produces... Confidence
In your Confidence He’s Faithful
So, a few weeks ago the Spirit woke me up to a song titled, ‘A Great Work’ by Brian Courtney Wilson. At the time, that song was the last thing I wanted to hear. I was frustrated, waiting, waiting and still waiting on the Lord, to the point that my confidence in what I heard was slipping. I believed God, but unlike the lady whom we mentioned in the last blog, my resilience and persistence in faith fizzled out.
I did everything in my strength to rebel against the nudges of the Lord. I avoided that song, sulked in my frustrations and pretty much did Jesus like Martha, I blamed Him. It seemed as if my faith-based confidence was useless and unnecessary to hold on, especially after another year of unfilled promises. But A Great Work.
Faith that Produces ... Healing
Healing is your God-given birthright:
Many acts in the Bible highlight Jesus' healing powers. If you take notice, almost all healing miracles are done through faith. Ex. Mark 5:25-32 highlights an event where a woman had a flow of blood for twelve years. In her strength, she tried everything for the sake of being cured. However, nothing seemed to work. Knowing that Jesus was in town, she dared to touch him. The woman with an issue of blood touched his garment and was healed immediately. Wow, what kind of faith? Jesus, knowing that virtue left His body, that is, the virtue that can only come from desperate faith – asked who touched Him. The woman admitted that in her desperation, she touched Him. Jesus' responded, "daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be healed of your affliction.”
