Feed your faith daily
"God has dealt to each one a measure of faith." Ro 12:3 NKJV
It's easy to give in to negative thoughts and fears about how things will turn out based on your past experiences. As Jesus pointed out, we live in a "faithless" generation (Mt 17:17 NKJV). That means you must constantly fight the defeatist attitude portrayed by the culture, the media, the educational system, the workplace-and sometimes your own friends. Unless you recognize this, it can wear you down by diluting your faith. That's why you need to feed your faith daily on God's Word. Jesus said, "If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move'…and it will" (Mt 17:20 NKJV). Notice, Jesus isn't referring to a mountain you encountered years ago. He said, "Say to this mountain." He wants you to exercise your faith today! He said, "If you have faith as a mustard seed……nothing will be impossible for you" (v. 20 NKJV). A mustard seed is so tiny, it can get stuck between your teeth. But Jesus said although it's "the least of all the seeds," it grows into a tree big enough for the birds to nest in (See Mt 13:32 NKJV). You say, "I don't have any faith." Yes, you do. Paul says, "God has dealt to each one a measure of faith." And when it's activated, miracles happen.
Even if you have only an ounce of faith left, you have what you need to prevail. But faith only works when it becomes the language you speak and the attitude you maintain. The Enemy doesn't want you to know that, because when you do, you won't just think about what's happening, you will start thinking about what's possible!
