How to Build Your Faith

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Notice that Scripture says, “without faith it is impossible to please God.” Hebrews 11:6 Do not complain or crave more or cry for the food like the Israelites did.

Psalm 78:14-22 says:
He guided them with the cloud by day and with light from the fire all night. He split the rocks in the desert and gave them water as abundant as the seas; he brought streams out of a rocky crag and made water flow down like rivers. But they continued to sin against him, rebelling in the desert against the Most High. They willfully put God to the test by demanding the food they craved. They spoke against God, saying, “Can God spread a table in the desert? When he struck the rock, water gushed out, and streams flowed abundantly. But can he also give us food? Can he supply meat for his people?” When the Lord heard them, he was very angry; his fire broke out against Jacob, and his wrath rose against Israel, for they did not believe in God or trust in his deliverance.

Belief and Trust are huge compliments to God. They glorify God. To glorify God simply means “to reveal God’s true character.” The opposite of glorifying God is to slander His reputation.

Do you remember as a child letting your parents worry about the finances, the rent, the electric bill, the food on the table, etc? Your job was to wake up, be happy, and play outside… not to worry about when or how you were going to get the food, the energy, the funding, the sleep, the work done. A child who worries dis-glorifies the parent. Jesus said that we could not enter the Kingdom of God if we did not become like a little child. Therefore, our life should reflect belief in God and trust of His deliverance. All worries I give to God as I simply obey in all things. With faith, belief, and trust, the burdens of life are lifted off your shoulders—you can be the child again. Why does God want this? Because it builds an interactive relationship with the Heavens until He is all in all, everywhere and in everything—His goal and our purpose.
