Hinged

Faith. It can move mountains. Calm storms. Heal diseases. Raise the dead. It’s a game changer. Lack of faith can be just as powerful. It can determine the outcome of a situation. It can determine if we sink or if we walk on water.

What is your faith hinged on?

  • Circumstances
  • People
  • Proof
  • Mood

Instability can be caused by the shifting sands of faith. Ideal situations make it easy to trust and declare that we are standing on the promises of God. But when the waves comes, are we still as confident and bold in our stance? If we have a bad day and are frustrated, are we still standing firm and not wavering? If we can’t see the promise of God in the natural, are we still believing in what we cannot see? If someone attempts to ruin our day with their negativity, do we allow them to?

There will be rough days. We will get weary. But ultimately, we must remain steadfast and not allow the enemy to pounce on our weakness. If we give way to the unstable emotions that are sure to occur, we lose sight of the power of our God.  We must not forget how capable He is. His strength is made perfect in our weakness. His love never fails. He’s called Most High for a reason. When we can’t, He can.

Let your faith be hinged on the only true stability…Jesus Christ.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.  But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.  Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.” – James 1:5

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1

“I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7
