The “F” in Faith stands for “the Future”. Faith is not the actions of the Past or the words of the Present, Faith is the substance of the Future-
Faith is your ability unlike Thomas to believe while you have not seen. Faith is Noah preparing an ark for something God called rain. Faith is blind bartimaeus dropping his support and not allowing anyone to lead him as though he already had his sight while trying to meet Jesus for his sight. Faith is that Centurion telling Jesus he is as effective from where He is on the street as He would be in his unworthy home for Jesus to heal his servant boy.
Faith is the Solution, not the hopes of the possibilities of the effectiveness of the solution put into consideration. Faith is Obedience- “follow me and I will make you fishers of men”…2000 years later; and more fishers of men are birthed daily. Faith is Abraham leaving his home to an unknown land. Faith is Nonetheless the results, “I will still hold on to Jesus”- Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego going into the fire even if the father will forsake them (God will never leave nor forsake you).
It is not Faith if it is the usual, it is not Faith if you fully comprehend it (what’s the faith in it?). Faith is a believe- a believe in something to come and not something already in your reach. Faith is exhibited before and during the process, not after; thanksgiving is what you show before, during and after the process.
Faith is not what you Think God Can Do- it is not even what you Know He Will Do, Faith is what you Know God HAS Done- Faith is a commodity everyone uses every second of the day. Faith in the Negative Context is called Doubt; the believe that it will not happen, while the believe of it occurring is Faith in itself- the thought we should all have in mind- a Positive Context.
The “F” in Faith represensts the Future-
How do you intend to live yours?
In the Positive Context or in the continuity of doubt?
HAVE SOME FAITH- be it in a mustard seed form or watermelon like!!!
