Standing, Stepping and Striding in Faith!

"And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God!"
~Mark 11:22
Hey there Friends!
May your week be filled with excitement for the seen and unseen! :O)
Faith. I was feeling a little discouraged the past week and God sooo knew that I needed reminded and encouraged in the area of faith!  He spoke to my heart with a renewed vision for living in faith and I hope this post excites your vision too!  I'm so grateful for a God Who never tires and loves sharing truth in never-ending ways! :O)
Before I explain the heading to this post - I wanted to share a few quotes about faith that God really used to bless me!
"Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible, and receives the impossible!" ~Unknown
"God wants us to approach life, full of expectancy that God is going to be at work in every situation as we grow in our faith in Him!" ~Colin Urquhart
"Faith is not a sense, not sight, not reason, but taking God at His Word!" ~Faith Evans
Faith is joyfully choosing the eternal NOW, no matter what the opposition - knowing that God is before me, behind me and right beside me!
"With God, ALL things are possible!" ~Mark 10:27

Standing, Stepping and Striding in Faith!
Not neglecting what God has told me to do, but being sensitive to when He
calls for me to be still and watch Him work.  It's a time of standing in awe of what
miraculous things He is doing - seen and unseen!
{{{"That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God!"}}}
~I Corinthians 2:5
Moving decisively away from all that the world says will give me worth!  Assuredly moving forward with the strong confidence that every step that I surrender to the King of Kings and for His Kingdom is worthy and eternal!  It's blazing my life trail with the Guide Who knows all things!
{{{"He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God!" ~Romans 4:20}}}
Energetically acting on the blessings that God has given me!  Hearing His "Go!" and going for it!!!!!!
{{{"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!  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house: by the which he condemed the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith! By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went." ~Hebrews 11:6-8
"Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; Who for the JOY that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God!" ~Hebrews 12:2
Life is full of challenging situations and faith isn't just hitting the "easy" button for them.  It's also not something to be stressed about, trying to "drum"  it up to make it through situations! Faith is a choice!  It doesn't mean that it makes hard situations go away, but it is a powerful blessing of knowing God's presence and believing His will in every situation!  It's always overflowing and available for claiming!  It's a blessing that is rewarded with more blessing!  (Pretty neat huh?!)  When we claim to live by faith and deeply put it into action with our heart, mind and life - the rewards, fruits, blessings and impacts are in-numerable!  (Some seen and others unseen, but both just as powerful and eternal!!!)
Blessings to you as you live out your faith!! May you have sensitivity to the Holy Spirit in your standing, stepping and striding!!!  I'm cheering for you friends!!!!
