Faith Living

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- April 4, 2012

“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.” Hebrews 11:8

Living a life of faith often times means we may not know exactly where we are being led, but we know Who we are following. God protects a trusting heart as He perfects it through His faith-building process. It is a great adventure to align with the Almighty’s agenda. Like an experienced and trusted guide, He is always a step ahead down the path of His will. So, we seek to know Him, because He knows where He is going.

Faith living is not always fun, but it is fulfilling. It is not always exciting, but it is engaging. It is not always easy, but it is honorable. It is not always safe, but it is secure. It is not always clear, but it is rewarding. It is not always instant gratification, but it is satisfying. Faith living is looking intently into the gracious face of our heavenly Father. Christ’s countenance cares. He laughs when we laugh, and He weeps when we weep.

“And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise.” Hebrews 11:11

Faith living is not for the faint of heart. When you sign up to follow your Savior Jesus, you declare abandonment to His desires over any clamoring of competing voices. For example, an unscrupulous acquaintance may lead you into a foolish financial decision or a sincere friend could recommend unwise career advice. Listen and obey the Lord first.

In most cases, faith living is not a straight line from point A to point B. The progression in God’s will involves starts and stops, relational dead-ends, financial forays, ups and downs and finally meaningful milestones to be celebrated. Therefore, keep on your prayerful path with Jesus. Keep showing up by faith and He will direct you in His best direction. Faith living lives wisely while waiting—and moves forward when called by Christ. Keep your eye on the prize of pleasing your heavenly Father—win His reward.

“By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.” Hebrews 11:23-24

Prayer: Lord where are you calling me that requires me to trust You?

  1. I am the business owner of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently aiming to expand my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain can help me 🙂 I thought that the most suitable way to do this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if anybody at all could suggest a reliable web-site where I can buy CBD Shops B2B Data I am already checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most ideal selection and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
