Ok, here is my paraphrase of Hebrews 11:6, “We can’t please God without faith and we can’t see him moving in our lives doubting him!” We have the tendency to gloss over this passage of text but think about it for a minute…if we can’t please God without faith what makes us think that we can truly live without faith. Yes, we can possess the money, cars, jobs, houses, and all the luxuries this dying world offers but are we truly living. Faith is as important to life as breath is as important to breathing. Faith is your spiritual muscle and the more it’s exercised, the stronger it becomes. On God: FAITH OVER EVERYTHING! Each of us have been given a measure of faith (Romans 12:3) but it’s what we do with it that makes the difference. I’ve heard people that are infected with Eeyore Syndrome say, “Well Lowell, my faith is not that great!” Well, my response to that disposition is, “So what, you don’t need that much faith!!” In Matthew 17:20 Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” So how do you build the measure of faith bequeathed to you? Well, you will never build spiritual faith working out in an earthly gym. Romans 10:17 says, “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.” Now drop down and give me 50….not push ups but read 1 of the 50+ scriptures about faith everyday for the next 7 days and allow God’s word to permeate your heart, mind, and spirit! And like Saul in Acts 9:18, His word will remove the scales from your eyes so that you can see God powerfully, prophetically, and strategically moving in your life! Your faith has the power to move mountains in your lives or create them!
