When you study the lives of those in the Bible, do you every wonder how they did it? How did they have so much faith to climb out of the boat, to fight an army, to build an arc, to kill a giant, or to die on a Cross? How?
But not only did they have faith, they had a promise. A promise that “God would never leave them nor forsake them” (Deut. 31:6). Where “He makes a way where there seems to be no way” (Isaiah 43:19) That God causes all things to work together to those that love Him, to those called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
Each of us has a promise; a purpose that God put in us.
See, we ask Him, “Lord, what am I to do? What have you called me to do?” Yet in His very Word He says,
I [He] also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
Out of the miry clay,
And set my feet upon a rock,
And established my steps.
You need to know that your purpose, your call, was already established in you. Maybe you were pulled out of a horrible pit of sin and you don’t know how to do this "Christian" thing or maybe you’ve been a Christian so long, yet you don’t know what truly God has put you on this earth to do.
Know that you have a promise that was already established in you when you we created in your mother’s womb.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; - Jeremiah 1:5
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. - Psalm 139:13
This is when our faith needs to be awakened. Where the journey from the Authoring of faith to the Finishing of our faith matures (Hebrews 12:2).
And when it matures we have a faith that is unstoppable.
A faith that moves mountains (Matthew 17:20).
A faith where our steps become ordered, therefore, ordering your steps to be all that He has called you to be (Psalm 37:23).
And sometimes in those steps may come delays or trials, yet we find our answers not in books or listening to podcasts (not that those are all wrong) but we have to begin to look for our answers in His Word.
I promise you this is where you find your answers; this is where you will find your revelation in your circumstance, in your situation.
It’s in these moments of desperation we find our revelation and it’s in that moment our faith grows bigger than before.
And when you mature in this knowledge of who He is, you begin to have a faith in what He says.
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)
