    You pose a challenge. Question is, how much farther can one walk on yesterday's faith?

    In His Service,

    I don't know, but I suppose until I get tommorow's faith...

    LOL!

    Seriously, though, when times are rough, the seen helps us cling to the unseen. Were it not for that, many of us could never begin to stay the course. If I am unusual in that, let me know!

    In Truth,

    Hi Mel,
    Gret Scriptures.
    Romans 1:17 --Six kinds or expressions of faith occur in Scripture. Doctrinal faith, called "the faith," refers to the content of Christian belief (Jude 3). Saving faith is trusting in Christ and in Him alone for Salvation (Acts 16:31). Justifying faith is the believer's reliance on the fact that God has declared him righteous (Gen.15:6). Indwelling faith is trusting God's Word in and through us (Gal.2:20. Daily faith is that day-by-day dependence on God which is part of the sanctification process ((2Cor.5:7). The gift of faith is a special ability of faith, resulting in a vision of what God can do, faith that is the means by which we can achieve that vision, and the power of God to get answers to Prayer (Heb. 11:1-3).....God's
    hall of faith (Heb.11) indentifies a number of Old Testament Saints who experienced God's blessing as a result of their faith. Although they did not all experience the same kind of victories, all pleased God by faith.(Heb.11:6)

    We all know that it is impossible to please God without faith (Heb.11:6) Also in James 2:17 --Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. James 2:21-- Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaaac his son upon the alter?
    (So faith and works go together) Just like Abraham, he offered His son, that is works, and Faith is, He knew that God would provide.
    (by works was faith made perfect)

    We need to put legs under the faith, and move out, be obedient to what the Holy Spirits says.

    We all get down at times and we feel our faith is weak, but it is still there, needs to be exercised.......Run our life line back and see where God has brought us from, and through the things we thought we could never endure. This will make you stronger in your faith.(We live by faith and not by sight).

    As the saying goes, I'm not what I use to be, not where I want to be, but I'm ok and I'm on my way......
    God bless you Brother and your family...
    With God's Love,
    Lois J.

    Works flow from faith. And the journey grows our faith. And along the journey, the things we do are works, if done in faith.

    In Truth,

    Mel
