GOT FAITH? Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1.

Throughout my life and the experiences I have discovered in my life, Faith can be an EPIC success and an EPIC fail. It was hard because sometimes I just didn't see it happening but I had to be patience and obedient to the WORD of GOD. I waivered and didn't always believe but once I got my belief in line with the WORD of GOD “THE BIBLE”, there was no stopping me because I FULLY TRUSTED IN GOD, and that’s is the key.

For example, I got into a car accident, head on collision, in 2010. I totaled my car and needed a car right away. I had to go back to work, take my mother to her doctor's appointment, pick up people for church, and so many other responsibilities I had.  Not to mention, I had to wait for the other insurance company to step in and it took them over six months. People tried to discourage me and tell me that I was out of my mind. I wasn't going to get the car and was very unsupportive. That was the enemy trying to get me to doubt GOD but there was nothing the enemy could do about nothing because I believed in my heart and I had substance and evidence, which was realization and confidence. I activated my faith and I went to GOD and I said, ”Lord, you know the responsibilities I have, I need a car and I don’t have any money for the down payment. I need you to step in and make a way for me to get this car.”


I activated my faith and went to the car dealer ship and was honest and told the salesman that I didn't have a down payment and I needed something right away. To make a long story short, he stepped out of the office and came back with keys. The moral of the story is I had activated faith and I trusted GOD. I didn't stay there feeling woe is me. I acted on my faith. I walked away with a 2008 four door Dodge Caliber. Hallelujah!!! I had to learn to put my trust in GOD and not man. 2 Corinthians 7:12 says “we walk by faith and not by sight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”

See when you have that faith of a mustard seed, GOD will operate in a ridiculous way. Why? Because “faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of GOD.” (Romans 10:17). The word of GOD has the power to override anything because the word of GOD is active. When you activate your faith the word of GOD becomes active and before you know it, GOD is rising up and moving on your behalf.

So I leave you with this: Just hold on and keep the faith!! GOD knows you're going through things that seem as if they aren't changing. It seems as if your enemies are getting worse and mocking you and your GOD. GOD is bringing you through things that are uncomfortable to bring you up, to strengthen you, to get you where you need to be in HIM. If you just hold on to HIS WORDS, keep the faith no matter what it look like, taste like, smell like, or seem like, GOD is in the midst of your storm calming every area of your life that you are not even aware of. Even if you do not perceive HIM, GOD is there fighting on your behalf. GOD is putting an end to all such scheming and conniving troublemakers on your behalf, like a pile of dry bush, soaked up in oil they will go up in flames. GOD is taking the yoke from your neck and splitting it up for kindling, GOD is cutting you free from the ropes of your bondage.
