Faith is a combination of believing or not believing, doing or not doing something, just because God said it and I believe it. Faith can be classified as both brilliant and dumb all at the same time. Faith is the epidemy of stupidity. The very definition of insanity. When you are being led by faith there is an inner drive or knowing, that this what I am supposed to do even though I don’t know exactly what or why I am doing what I am doing, I just do it. Faith is action and sometime Faith is static. Sometimes Faith is not doing what you want to do because for some reason your internal guidance is going crazy. Its a feeling in the pit of your stomach, a gnawing feeling, telling you to be quiet and hold. still. Stepping into faith can make your peers look at you differently. Faith can make people you love, shun you. Faith can lead you into a place of deep depression, because Faith can stripped all you thought you knew, love, or had, away from you.
- Faith is lonely. Faith is what separates the chickens from the eagles. Both the chickens and the eagles are birds. Both have wings. What separates the two is when they where just chicks, the eagle’s mother pushed the baby eagles out of the nest. The baby eagles had two choices fly or die. The baby chickens wasn’t given a choice, no other chickens are out flying so there was no push.
I grew up in a chicken environment. I was always told what I couldn’t do, what I couldn’t have. I didn’t accomplish much because I didn’t believe I could do much. That all changed once I meant Jesus. Church don’t tell the whole story. I realize there are plenty of people who go to church but not a lot of people know God. God doesn’t have any chicken children. If you are really God’s child you have two options fly or die. God pushes us into greatness. He makes us go farther, we go from Faith to Faith and from Glory to Glory. There are no wimps in God’s army. Throughout writings of the New Testament Jesus reveals to us that God is not moved by our tears, pain, or conditions. God is concern with what you believe. When Jesus meant the paralysed man who laid by a pool for almost four decades, Jesus didn’t comfort or consoled the man. He basically gave the man two options pick up your bed and walk or lay in your pain and die.
Faith is what pleases God. If you have Faith and a belief that with God you can do anything, than you can do anything. Faith is what is what sustains you. Faith is what makes you keep fighting, when every one else leaves the battlefield. Faith makes you praise God in sadness. Faith is being ridiculed for over a 100 years, while building an arc for rain, when you or anyone else you know, doesn’t have the slightest clue what rain is, because it had never rained before.
