LIVING BY FAITH

We are supposed to walk by faith and not by feelings. I don’t know of anywhere in the Bible that it says that God will give you some kind of a feeling. Although sometimes I do get a feeling from the Holy Spirit. But the Bible says to walk and live by faith. “For we walk by  faith, not by sight.” (II Corinthians 5:7 ). We need to claim the promises from his Word and walk by Faith. The Lord sometimes asks us to do something to show we have Faith. He said, “Take Ye away the stone.” (John 11:39).Then he raised Lazareth from the dead. Jesus told the blind man to go and wash  his eyes in the Pool of Siloam, “He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.” (John 9:7b).The lame beggar was told to rise and take up his bed and walk.The Bible tells  us to “confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and we will be saved.” (Romans 10:9&10). Many times the Lord requires us to do some type of action to prove that we have faith.“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” (James 2:26). Remember the story of the three men walking on a wall, feeling, faith,and fact. Feeling had an awful fall, and faith was taken back, only fact remained, and fact pulled up faith, and faith pulled up feeling, and they walked happily on the wall again. “Now the just shall live by faith; but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.” (Hebrews 10:38). “And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying,go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee and thou shalt be clean.” (II Kings 5:10).Works won’t save you, but works show that you have faith which saves you. “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6). “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” ( Philippians 4:19). We have come this far by FAITH leaning on the Lord, trusting in his HOLY WORD. He has never failed me yet, and he never will. If you want more faith get more into the WORD. ” So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17). ” for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” (Romans 14:23b). ” And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” (Matthew 13:58).

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen
