There will come a time in your life that God will test us to see if we have a willingness to do what he asks of us. Our obedience to God and Faith will be tested. Let’s think of faith like a muscle. The word muscle – the engine that our body uses to propel, to push itself. Muscles turn energy into motion – Incredibly sophisticated. Muscles grow stronger with practice, our muscles do everything from allowing us to walk to keep our blood flowing.
Muscles are symbolic of our faith. Your faith is like the muscles in our body. For your muscles to be strong, they must be worked daily. Our faith is a process that involves decreasing degrees. Faith is our strength and power source just as our physical muscle.
As we need to exercise our physical muscles to remain strong and healthy, we also need to exercise the spiritual muscle of faith to remain spiritually healthy. Having a strong “faith” muscle is important because it is what you count on during times of stress, trouble, and loss. Having a weak and flabby faith muscle in times of distress can lead to panic, depression, and worst of all – loss of trust in God.
Our results are seen as we continue to exercise our faith, we grow stronger and stronger.
There are times in our life that God will allow a situation to come to teach us, to make us think. By faith know that God has you through it all. Let me remind you, in Roman 8: 28 – All things work together for good. The enemy will take dark threads, and he will intertwine and interlace, he will mingle and incorporate in the tapestry of our lives to complicate our deliverance but what the devil meant for bad God turns it around. He takes the good, the bad, and the ugly and shapes it for our good.
Work your faith muscles and be confident that your faith muscles are not of this world. By faith, believe what you ask for is yours.
