“This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”(Psalm 118:24, NKJV)
I just thought of sharing these words that I read a few days ago on faith. This is extracted from a from a daily devotion by Joel and Victoria Osteen of Lakewood Church, Houston, TX.
“A lot of times, it can be easier to have faith for the future. We believe “one day” we’ll get a good break. “One day” we’ll feel better. “One day” the problem will turn around. If we’re not careful, we’re always putting our faith off, believing that in the future something good is going to happen. But, true faith is always in the present. God is called “the Great I Am” not “the Great I Will Be.” He wants to show you His goodness, His favor and His mercy today!
If this is going to happen, you can’t just have faith for the future. You have to believe that “today is my day.” “This could be the day my health improves.” “This could be the day I get the phone call I’ve been waiting for.” “This could be the day my child comes back home.” There has to be an expectancy that something good is going to happen. Not next week. Not next year. Not in the sweet by and by. No, expect that today is your day and watch what God will do in every area of your life!
Wow! I guess, its time we all put on some good ol’ faith! Totally and wholly trusting even today, and not waning in our faith.
And talking about faith, I though I should share the words and video of one of my favourite songs in recent years. Its called “What Faith Can do” by a group called Kutless. The chorus says:
“I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do.”
Now that’s deep!
Keep the faith! ! #GodIsAble!
