Rom 13:14 Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ,and make no provision for the flesh to arouse its desires.
The same trusting faith that saves us is the faith that also helps us lead a Godly life. Many a times our failures and the power of sin discourages us. If we properly learn to trust like Christ and depend on God, we can press on to a victorious life overcoming these failures.
What is faith? According to Heb 11:1 Faith is the substance of things hoped for and evidence of things not seen.
Today you may be discouraged And in many ways feel burdened by the commandments of God. Then you have not understood accurately or misunderstood faith.faith is “not a lottery” that keeps you wondering whether its possible to live a Godly life. Rather Faith “produces an evidence” of a invisible God in our visible life. God is the producer, we are his ground , his field to sow. We need,a believing, trusting and honest heart and the gardener will do everything else in a divine glorious manner.
Our victory over all hindrances to a godly life in Christ and in becoming like him is a certainty , a reality as real as the fact that he has died on the cross so also we have been blessed to share in God’s power, his nature and way of thinking by the power of the Holy Spirit provided we have faith _ 2 peter 1:4
Without faith it is impossible to please God.
If you are failing and feel weak then pray to God and confess saying “Lord no matter what my experience says but only your word is true.My failure is a sign of my own effort and strength but victory and deliverance are a sign of your strength. Therefore I need the Gift of faith. Help me”
So start with the faith , trust in God.God’s will is clear and he wants his children free from every bondage so he pours himself today within you as Holy Spirit.
So is there any thing that the eternal, almighty God cannot do ? Can our Father demand a holy life and yet cannot give us the power to live such a life? What does your faith say?
Be sure of this, as you were saved , completely by Gods mercy and, grace in the same way with the same faith you will win the battles of life by his power, his strength, his grace. When we have unbelief we say “can’t” and “maybe” but by saving faith we confess “surely” such a life and victory is possible in Jesus name . Only those that believe these precious promises by FAITH will overcome sin, Satan and the world.
Be zealous and press on to the upward call of Christ in holiness, righteousness and a life that is pleasing to God. No longer by your strength but in God Almighty’s strength. Then we shall “be” the light of the world as our Lord Jesus and will be among the faithful few who are prepared for the coming of the Lord.
According to your faith, it will be done to you.
May the gracious Father and our Lord Jesus Christ open our eyes to see this truth.
