You are Coming Forth as Gold…

FAITH

Have the FAITH of God.  In other words, have the faith belonging to God or the God kind of Faith, which is His word.

The Father said of Jesus, “…this is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”  Faith is what pleases God.  It says that we cannot please him without it.  God spoke from the cloud and told his disciples “this is my beloved Son, listen to him”. 

Why is he saying listen to him?  He is the personification of what God said.   In John 1 it says, “in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God.”  Jesus is the word and Jesus is the faith.  By Faith or by repeating what he says, we are pleasing to God also.  We are operating like Jesus.  We are responding like his son did when the world was created. 

In Genesis, as each day progressed God ended it with the statement “and it was good”  As you come to learn more you will hear the call, the words of Jesus, the word of Faith, that takes the pressure off of you because it is all God and not you.  It is His word, not your words that we speak of. 

In these trying times of our day.  Have the faith OF God.  Speak what he is saying and encourage yourself in the Lord.

HOPE

In these trying times of our day, there are many discouraging things going on in this world to cause fear and anxiety.  But our Father God does not want us to lose HOPE or to feel ashamed as we patiently wait on the promises, he has made to us.  The promises of provision (our needs supplied), of protection (I  am with you and I will never leave you). 

HOPE has two words attached to it, expectation and anticipation.  Expectation is the act of looking forward to an event as about to happen and anticipation is the act of considering something before the proper time in natural order.   Jesus endured because of the hope that was set before him.  That was a great expectation. The scriptures say that HOPE that is seen is not hope.  It asks the question “why do we hope for things we can see?”  So, for the things we cannot see we continue to expect God’s results.

King David said twice in Psalm 42 Hope in God.  Why? Because He was his help and for his health, which caused him to not be ashamed but to give God praise. 

So, praise the Lord in Hope today because He, the God who abides is with you always.

LOVE

He is a seed sower, a giver.  What he gives he anticipates that he will receive back what he has given even if he does not. 

The Bible says, “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” 

Though he knew this, our perpetual condition, in advance, yet he still sent his only Son to prove his love.

In Romans 5, it states that it is the love “of” (which means “that belongs to”) God is shed abroad.  Some translations say that it is “poured out”.  This kind of love that cannot be contained. It will spill over and out into other people and the world.  That is why LOVE is the greatest.  It is clean, pure, holy and freely given.

So, look to God today through the Love of His Son Jesus Christ who is waiting for you with opened arms. 

“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”
 

You are LOVED!
