I believe God will rarely ask us to do something that we can do by ourselves. Why? It’s because the Bible says, “It is impossible to please God without faith.” (Heb. 11:6) Don’t get the wrong idea though, He doesn’t “need” us to please Him. What pleases God is the FAITH we express when we say, “Yes!” to His request. It’s the deep trust we show to God as we step-out to conquer the things we cannot accomplish by ourselves. THAT is what makes God smile. Too many people turn away from things that are bigger than themselves. They don’t realize that God might be trying to stretch their faith. To say, “I believe! I trust! I have faith!” is a great declaration. But, a declaration needs ACTION to backup the words of our belief, our trust, and our faith. Action turns a declaration into a manifestation.
So, stop running from the BIG opportunities that God drops on your doorstep. And remember, “Faith is what you DO with what you DON’T have!
In Him, Pastor Kevin Kinchen
