Ask in faith

Posted on Posted in Expectations, Faith, Trust

                                                           … believing!

 
When we think of faith,
… we normally mean that we believe God,
and in particular,
that we are believing God for something!

      There is nothing wrong with that,
      however too often what we’re believing for,
      … does not manifest the way we expect!

Could it be that the problem is not faith, or the lack of it,
… but that it is about what we are believing,
in other words, our motif or expectation?

      When we go to God, in faith,
      … about a need we may have,
      … or a promise in His Word,
      what are we believing, what are we expecting?
      God or the promise?

If we are truly honest,
… we expect the answer to manifest,
that what we have asked of God, will be done!

      Maybe that is why the book of Hebrews tells us,
      … for he who comes to God must believe that He is,
      … and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
         Heb. 11:6

What or who are you believing,
God’s promises or God, the provider of those promises?
What or who are you seeking,
God’s reward or God Himself?

      Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.  (Matt. 6:33)
      He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.    (Heb. 11:6)
