Romans 12:3 (AMP)3 For by the grace (unmerited favor of God) given to me I warn everyone among you not to estimate and think of himself more highly than he ought [not to have an exaggerated opinion of his own importance], but to rate his ability with sober judgment, each according to the degree of faith apportioned by God to him.
Faith is a wonderful gift of God that can bring great healing and comfort into our lives. We have faith – we just need to use it. Our faith grows when we use it. When we release our faith – tremendous things can happen in our lives. We can get to the point where we live by faith. It is not something that happens right away but when we make a decision that we put our trust in God rather than our own abilities then we can get to that place of living by faith.
We release our faith by praying to God, believing what God says and speak what God says over our lives. Then by actively living a life that reflects we trust God that He knows what He is doing in our lives. We cannot be lazy with using our faith. Once we pray for something and decide to use or faith it will take some patience – to wait for God to act so we don’t try to solve our problems or the problems of the people we are praying for.
We all have fears in our life – known and unknown. Don’t let those fears steal your ability to believe the best for your life by placing the stumbling block of fear in your way to get your prayer answered. Don’t let the fear get in the way of your faith. No matter how the outlook is always believe the best and pray for courage to confront that fear and move forward in life.
