Faith : Aspire for something greater
Are you ready for Faith?
Faith is a challenge that reveals who is who and what kind of faith we profess to have; if it is emotional or intelligent. Whether it has quality or is “cheap”.
Let us now discuss something very interesting in Hebrews 11:13:
“These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”
And it is … my cybernaut friend; I’m here smiling and happy because there exists a joy within me. This is the faith that I profess! Mine is a faith that has quality, a faith that aspires for greater things.
Well, I don’t know what type of faith you have… whether you’re an assistant, pastor’s wife, whomever you are: you have some type of faith, this I am sure of!
I don’t know until what point your faith reaches, but for those who aspire for something greater, do you know what happens to these kind of people? They always acquire quality within themselves.
My question is this: ”If I await for the Lord Jesus every day, how is my faith? How will my life be?
Always being vigilant! Yes or no? I would be like that bride waiting for the groom.
The Bible refers to this “groom”; He will come suddenly and those that make up the “bride”, which is the Church, are those who aspire for greater. They are the ones who weren’t only content with achieving the benefits of Faith; for example, blessings for the family, financial life, success in the workplace… but for those who aspired for something much more!
Aspire, meaning to live intensely; to think of God, wait for Him, and always be on lookout for the Heavenly Kingdom!
Cybernaut friend, what type of faith do you have?
All you need to do is realize what you are aspiring to achieve…
Is your concern focused on your husband that doesn’t return home?
On your son who doesn’t understand?
On your finances, on your debts that you need to pay?
I don’t know… but maybe you think: “Viviane, if we are confronting certain difficulties in our family, at home, financially, it is impossible not to think of these things…”
It’s true my friend, that when you aspire things from this world then your head is only thinking about resolving those problems; but when you aspire for greater things, do you know what happens? Whenever there is a family problem, economic problem, whatever it is….You don’t accept that emotion of concern overwhelm and overpower you, because you want to exercise your faith, and you’re ready and thinking about your “groom”. Is it true or not?!
It is this that differentiates who is who, what type of faith you have, or in what category you find yourself in: if you’re infantile in your Faith, interested only in the blessing Faith brings, or in reining with Jesus.
Know, my fellow cybernaut, that I speak of a Faith that goes beyond.
I am not referring to a faith that is only worried about blessings and gains; I am speaking of a faith that wants so much more! And when you aspire for greater things, you prepare yourself, correct?
Become a better mother, don’t just prepare to be a better mother to your children or a better wife you your husband. Prepare yourself in your behavior, independent of the fact of who it is, if you know them or not.
You are waiting for the Lord, think of the Lord, meditate in Him, glorify Him, feel His presence in just thinking of Him and see how grand He is!
Aspire for greater things, take pleasure in reading the Bible, in speaking and glorifying Him. Do you know why? Because you live in novelty of your Faith in Him. You have a relationship with Him; you’re on a “honeymoon” with your Lord.
And so my fellow cybernaut, that is when you really aspire for something greater!
Wait for the Lord, be ready and be better as each day passes. Become a confident person, independent of people and more dependent on God: sensitive to His voice, humble, flexible to learn and grow, submit yourself, and if it need be, start new challenges. You are this person and you become someone that is easily molded by God because you aspire for greater things.
My fellow cybernaut friend, I ask:
What do you aspire for? For whom do you have this hope? What is your goal for your life? For whom and for what?
