Instead of feeling powerless, draw on your faith for strength

Sometimes as we go along our day, we tend to become frustrated with what is happening in our lives. We lose sight that God is still in charge! We have let ourselves get caught up in this microwave world we now live in and want to force issues. When the truth of the matter is that all we need is faith.

Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (King James Version).

With faith all things are possible, as with the women who had the issue of blood in Mark 5:25. She believed that if she could just touch the hem of Jesus garment, she would be healed! So that is what she did, and instantly she was healed from an illness that she had for 12 years, an illness no doctor could give her relief from.

You see there was no power in the hem; the healing power was her faith. She knew this was a man who had performed many of miracles and nothing was impossible for Him. Just a touch was all she needed. Jesus responded by saying to his disciples “someone has touched me!” They were somewhat surprised because they were in the midst of a crowd. But, Jesus told them He felt the power leave Him.

Just as it was back then, faith still works for us now. Faith will lead some men to believe the impossible can be obtained. God did not intend for any of us to struggle. We just happened to be thrust into circumstances we had no control of when we were born. But here is the saving grace; we have the power within to change any circumstance! We just have to have the faith in Him to make the change.

In the book I co-authored, Multiple Streams of Determination, there are several stories of success from meager beginnings. You do have a say so in your future! As Jesus said unto them, “have faith in God … what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” Mark 11:22, 24 (KJV).
