How far does your faith take you?
Hello everyone, today I want to ask you: How far has your faith taken you? Has it been limited by the circumstances?
If it is an intelligent faith, then go forward, develop and improve every day!
“And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians; and it shall be, when you go, that you shall not go empty-handed.
But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, namely, of her who dwells near her house, articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing; and you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters. So you shall plunder the Egyptians.” “(Ex.3: 21,22).
See what God does when we make Him part of our life! Do you remember how the people cried out to God and He answered them? But in order for them to receive the answer a sequence of events had to happen, which was a result of their faith. Moses had to face the Egyptians, his own people – where he had fled from – he assembled the elders and with them spoke directly with the king of Egypt. He did exactly what God asked!
Therefore, God did not allow the people to leave empty-handed.
You might even know the history of the people of Israel, the ten plagues, etc., but what you may not have noticed is that after the ten plagues, the people won favor in the sight of the Egyptians and therefore did not leave empty-handed.
Interesting how God said “every woman shall ask of her neighbor, namely, of her who dwells near her house, articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing…” God is wonderful! He teaches us to ask, even if we have to confront our pride in order to bring forth an audacious faith, so that what does not exist can come to exist.
There are several things that did not exist in me, but because of my obedience to His Word, my surrender and belief, they came exist! It is obvious that we must deny our own will to have this obedience, but because we submit ourselves to Him it brings into existence what does not exist. This is the fruit of our obedience to His Word.
God especially taught the women to ask, and be specific in what they wanted. They could have asked for anything since they did not have anything, but God taught His people to ask for something specific! And those people did exactly what God commanded and therefore did not leave empty-handed.
You cannot leave bondage empty handed! For many years you have worked for the devil and now it is time to take everything from him, everything that previously belonged to him. Now that you have God you have to ask, be bold, and manifest your faith.
And this is faith: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.“ (Hb.11: 1)
If you have this conviction, go with all your strength! But if you do not, you will not be able o reach your goals because of this uncertainty.
When there is obedience and belief, you will be bolder and will be able to develop your faith and that is what gets you where you want to be!
A big hug and until Monday
