What is Faith?

What is faith?

Faith can best be defined as absolute trust. Faith is letting go completely of your safety net and jumping into the unknown. Faith is the key into the kingdom of God. It is impossible to please God without faith. Abraham’s faith was deemed unto him righteousness to God. Faith heals the sick and raises the dead. Faith is a spirit thing!

Faith is the highest form of respect. Faith is manifested by action. Faith without action is not faith at all. To say, “I trust you” and to go off and do it under my own ability is not faith, it is works. We can not please God with works.

Let me give you the lesson God used to teach me this key. I hired a young lady who was close to my heart. At the time I was running many businesses at the same time. I would give her a task and she would do something else. In her mind she was doing a better job because she thought she was out thinking me. In reality, she was thwarting my purpose because she could not see the big picture. She was trying to impress me. I was not impressed. Obedience impresses God! I want to hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

Eventually I had to let her go. She was not helping me move toward my goal. There are people around you that you need to let go. They are not helping you move toward your purpose. You still love them, you just can not be with them. You have an assignment. This is you mission. It is up to you to complete this assignment. You are the responsible party.

God was not impressed when I was doing things He did not want me to do. He wanted the tasks He needed done. I was a complete failure! Was I going to heaven? Probably, but are you certain? I want to be 100% sure! I want to please my Father!

Obedience is better than sacrifice! David was a man after God’s own heart. David did all that God asked him to. David understood obedience. Do you?
