Little Faith

“The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.”

Galatians 5:6 NIV

Q. What counts more than money, things, activities, entertainment or even a clean house?

A. Faith expressing itself through love.

It is like having a keychain packed full of keys and on it is this really little one. You know that one random key that you are not sure what it is for but you are afraid to throw it out in case you need it.

What if on the packed keychain of your life, you find out that there is a key that unlocks a vault where all the richest treasures are stored?

That key is your faith in Jesus expressed through love.

Jesus told His disciples in Luke 17:6 that they didn’t need to have big faith. He said that if they put into action the little faith they did have, mountains would move.

My friend, it’s not the size of your faith but the size of your God that moves mountains. 

All you need is a tiny bit of faith to take the first step or a crumb of hope to get you moving.

All you need to do is see a little bit of the dream Jesus has for you,  then add love and put it into action. Take a little bit of trusting in His power, add a pinch of faith and do something.

When you are at that place where it seems a positive change is more like turning the Titanic than turning a key, get with Jesus.

If you need faith for your situation, He will let you use His.

If you need to remember the dream, ask God, He dreamt it first.

If you need hope and a bit of encouragement, He is the God of all hope.

Take the little you have and put it in action. 

What can you do with the little faith you have?

How will you express it through love today? 

The Road to Success

img_7234-2

The road to success is dotted with many parking places.

Parking places are meant to be a temporary place to stop, not a final destination – you do what you need to do and then get back on the road.

Friend, you are on a life journey with Jesus. Don’t get stuck at a rest stop. Don’t start living at the gas station. Don’t let a parking place become a permanent place.

Get moving.

Remember the reason you were called to this journey in the first place – Jesus has a plan for you.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Don’t get distracted.

Don’t settle.

Jesus has new places for you see, new people to meet and new opportunities to glorify God.

Rest stops are important but aren’t meant to be permanent.

Get back on your road.

What has gotten you off track on your journey with Jesus? What do you need to do today to get back on the road for the calling God has placed on your life?

Get Moving. 

Someone out there needs you.

Stuck

“(It takes eleven days to go from Horeb to Kadesh Barnea by the Mount Seir road.) In the fortieth year, on the first day of the eleventh month, Moses proclaimed to the Israelites all that the Lord had commanded him concerning them.

‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭1:2-3‬ ‭NIV‬

The Israelites had been traveling for 40 years and eleven months on a journey that should have taken 11 days.

They were stuck. God led them into the wilderness but He never intended them to live in the wilderness.

Yes, Jesus has done so much in you and you have come a long way, baby but don’t get stuck here.

You are not where you were but God is not done with you yet.

He has more for you.

Learning to live a new way is hard but don’t settle for wilderness living when you are called to the promised land in Christ.

Jesus says in John 10:10 “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

It doesn’t matter how long you have settled or how long you have been stuck, what matters is that you hear the word of the Lord calling you forward and reminding you that He has more for you.

Your journey does not end here.

Get up and get ready to fight for all God has for you.
