You know what another great thing I love about God is? His amazing grace gives us amazing faith, doesn't it? Just when we think we can't get through another challenging situation, the Lord will give us another round of His grace to get us over that hurdle, yet again. He will give us second winds that come often, which will be so awesome we can't help but be amazed at His awesomeness. Yes, God will enable us to do great feats and accomplish amazing things, that we have no choice but to know it was Him. Then will will walk in a godly confidence, because faith matters. Matthew 21:18-22 says:
"Early in the morning, as Jesus was on his way back to the city, he was hungry. Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, “May you never bear fruit again!” Immediately the tree withered. When the disciples saw this, they were amazed. "How did the fig tree wither so quickly?” they asked. Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done."
When we have faith, the results are visible. We don't want to be like the fig tree that was supposed to produce figs, but didn't. We want to blessed to be a blessing, right? And it doesn't matter what is in front of us or even behind us, we are covered by the blood of Jesus. What are you trying to get over today? Do you have any hurdles that are too high for you? No worries, just keep the faith going and continue striving towards the prize. God gives us the ability to do things naturally and He comes in and does the supernatural. So, you will get what God has for you. That's how He operates -- through our faith. We have to trust Him no matter how long it takes, because faith matters. "Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord" (2 Peter 1:2)
