“How Deep Is Your Faith?”
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe you---you of little faith Matthew 6:30
He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Matthew 8:26a
FAITH, a small word with a BIG meaning, which we see in Hebrews 11:1. FAITH is having CONFIDENCE in what we HOPE for and the ASSURANCE in what we cannot see.
In Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, He covered a LOT of important areas of people’s lives. One thing that He talked about was WORRY, He told the people; “Do NOT worry about your life, and not to even worry about the clothes they were to wear.” He said, if God clothes the grass of the field, will He not much more clothe you---you of little faith?”
When Jesus finished His sermon, He got into the boat and His disciples followed Him. When suddenly a FURIOUS storm came up on the lake and the boat begin to take on water as the waves swept over its sides. The disciples’ FAITH began to FALTER, even though they had the Master of the Sea, asleep in the boat, they were still afraid of drowning. So they woke Jesus up, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” And Jesus’ reply was, “You of LITTLE faith, why are you so afraid?”
First, my question to the TRUE BELIEVER is: “How DEEP is your FAITH?” A DEEP FAITH brings about a DEEP TRUST with the UNKNOWN, because, God’s Word, in 2 Corinthians 5:7 says: For we LIVE by FAITH, NOT by sight. If we TRULY BELIEVE, then our FAITH runs DEEP and we acquire a DEEP TRUST in the ONLY ONE who can take care of ALL our NEEDS, from the clothes we wear to the protection of our very lives. WE may NOT be able to see a way, but God CAN!
Secondly, if you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God then your FAITH is planted in either yourself or somebody else or something else other than God. And you do worry about things that in a lot of cases, you have very little if ANY control over. By NOT having FAITH in God, you are putting your destiny in a very HIGH RISK of spending an ETERNITY in a place called HELL, the place of ETERNAL torment, torture, pain, agony, heartache and despair. Hebrews 11:6 states: “And without FAITH it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God, because anyone who comes to Him MUST BELIEVE that He exists and that He rewards those who EARNESTLY SEEK Him.” So to have a DEEP FAITH and TRUST in the ONE who is ABLE to save you from an ETERNITY in Hell, you MUST come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and have a DEEP FAITH that will produce a DEEP TRUST. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
