Intersection of Life and Faith

Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.” --Oswald Chambers

Everyone is a person of faith. The reason I know this is because, around the world, people use chairs. (Stay with me a bit, this will make sense).

If you were to sit down in a chair and it crumbled beneath you into a thousand pieces, I would not run up to you and say, “Ha! You don’t have enough faith!” What I would say instead is that the object of your faith was inadequate and you need to choose better next time.

A lot of TV preachers will tell you that it’s okay to have faith in faith, but the apostle Paul would tell you to have faith in Jesus for salvation, and faith in Jesus for sanctification. In the same way you were saved by faith, live in faith.

Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did. --1 John 2:6

There’s proof as to whether or not we live by faith, and it’s demonstrated by how we are walking with Christ. I, for one, know I cannot walk as Jesus did on my own. I must have faith in Him to empower me to do so. Faith in myself is cute for the self-help section of the bookstore, but it will ultimately be my destruction.

Praise His name that we have a firm foundation to put our faith in.

Lord Jesus, give me clarity when it comes to what I put my faith in. May it only be You and nothing else. Help me tune out the false wisdom that surrounds me and hear the truth from Your Spirit. Amen.
