True faith is trusting in Father, and waiting patiently for said outcome.
Depending on how much faith you have in God that he will do what you ask, depends on how much work God will do for you. You give him a lot of faith,
he will give a lot of what you ask, you give him a little faith, you can surely expect a little in return.
Father helps those who are willing to help themselves. What I mean is that we must not just sit back and say oh well Father will provide. Now, saying
God will provide is correct if you are working and you are tapped out. I am talking about the people who sit back and don’t put forth any effort at
all and expect Father to even wash the dishes for them.
Many will look at others and wonder how can they have so much faith? It is because they have been through many situations and can look back at how
they came through. We are put through many situations that cause us to wonder where is God in all of this. But, he is surely there. Does the
teacher speak during the tests?
You pass your tests and Father will give you more in ways of faith, knowledge, love, or even things that are needed for your daily.
True faith is not letting worry or doubt overcome your mind. The world will tell you look at you, you just lost your job, where is your God now.
Will you now falter because of this? No, you take what just happened as a learning experience. In your emotional downfall, you may feel as though
Father is not there, but he sits back and watches what you will do next.
For instance, if you get back up and pound the pavement and do what is needed to get a job, he sees this. This shows him that you will do what is
needed in almost any situation without stumbling. But, if you sit back and cry and moan, this shows that he will need to work on you more.
When you start to doubt and waver and start to do things by your own hand, that is when you see Father step back and say, he will now learn to trust
in me, that I am God and will provide for you. Too many of us today, we try to do things our own way, we think we can take over the world by our own
hand. We keep doing this and God will keep putting us through things to get our attention.
You can't stay in a steady relationship, you lose your car, you lose your debit card. Do not look at these as the devil attacking you, but look at it
as Father trying to grab your attention. Give him faith, and watch how far he stretches his hand.
