This Is Where We Live By Faith
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for November 4, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant.
Lord our God, we thank you that you have redeemed us and that we may feel united with your holy ones, those in heaven and those on earth who are gathered around Jesus Christ, a people growing in number and strength from year to year. We thank you that we too belong to them, and we ask you to keep our hearts aware of this unity so that we may be joyful, redeemed people who find ever greater deliverance, full of praise and thanks, full of certainty and joy. Grant this to us, for we are your people, born out of your power as Savior and gathered for the sake of your kingdom. Guard your gifts and your powers within us. Continue your redemption of the whole world until joy floods through our whole being and we can praise you for the life you have already given us here on earth. Amen.
Daily Commentary: It is through the revelation of God we were given Jesus and through this revelation we are brought to faith. Where does your faith live? Is it in society and it’s pleasures? Or does your faith live through the word of God? You must pick one for that is where your heart lies.
It is this new covenant that we have put our faith in. The shedding of Jesus Christ’s blood has given us reason to have faith, to walk by faith and to believe what He offers. In the Old Testament, they were waiting for the Christ to arrive and it was fulfilled in the New testament.
Years of patiently waiting for the Lord to come and redeem the world but it came at the expense of many souls who lost faith and didn’t believe. Their faith was shaken and they lost out on eternal salvation.
Is your faith strong? Can it withstand the flames and arrows that constantly bombard our daily existence? You must understand that faith comes from trust… not in yourself but in God. For the just live by faith.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;” Proverbs 3:6
Pastor Tom Holladay puts it best when he says, “Faith in God means we rely on him and depend on his reliability. Having faith means realizing that God is bigger, greater, and better than me – and he loves me greatly.”
You must realize your faith in God is what he demands so that He can mold us and help us grow in faith and love. It is the power of faith that moves mountains and brings us to the feet of Jesus. We live by the power of faith.
