Faith That Sets Apart

So then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10:17

I just responded to my daughter's wonderful entry on Faith being a Friend. Hers was an always timely reminder of the preciousness of our faith. In the midst of a lost and dying generation, we shine as lights in the darkness. Why? Because we have faith.

As clearly stated in the above scripture we must have the Word active in our lives, cultivated in our hearts, daily transforming our minds if we hope to have faith that endures and reveals His victory. In order to walk through the storm and fire and make it through to the other side with joy and peace, we must have faith. We must stand upon the Word of God.

Take in the Word today. Make provision to take in the Word of God everyday. Study the Word. Sit under the Word as it is broken before you by precious saints in the house of God.

It is substance and nourishment to feed our souls. It is the sword we wield in battle, the washing agent that cleanses our minds of tainted worldliness. It is the source of true faith. True faith. Not positive thinking, not trust in man's finest counsel, not our best effort, but faith in God, the Living God.

The Word. God's treasure. It is living, powerful, true. Take time to treasure it and make it yours. Take time to strengthen your faith in Him, the One True God. Take the Word of God, His gift to us.

if we could only love it fully all the time! (God's Word, that is)
When we do treasure it, the peace & joy it brings is proof enough of its goodness.

--but really, the peace & joy that it brings is only the beginning of its benefits!
