Where are you now? What do you want in life? Just know that faith is the answer to unlocking the door to your complete fulfillment. No matter what you desire to achieve in life, it seems you will agree faith is essential. Knowing what you want is good, but until you get your desire met, you must walk by faith. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen.” This is what I call faith in action. Faith activates the power of God in your life. Faith has a window to your heart and mind and is constantly activating God’s promises in your life. Jesus, answering his disciples in Mark 11:23-24 said unto them,” For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he said. Therefore I say unto you, what things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
Isn’t it amazing that God wants to give us the very desires of our heart by faith? I had to ask myself the question, “Why would God be so interested and invested in seeing our hearts desires met?” The answer that kept coming to me was because He placed those desires there. We did not know what to think or even what to want. And if you think about it, your desires are always larger than what you can achieve yourself. It goes back to God’s promises, which is to give you the desires (the very things He placed in your heart) and since God placed it there, you know it has to line up with God’s will and plan for your life.
Let me pause to encourage you right now. Do not give up on your dreams or desires. No matter how large or unreachable your dreams and heart’s desires are, they shall come to pass, just like Jesus said. It is not for you to worry about how it’s going to happen. You can now close the door to worry and open the window of faith. It is God’s responsibility to make it happen, not yours!
