Faith In Action ‘Saved To Serve’

action

When going through a difficult circumstances, people will often ask me how am I doing, or how am I getting through. Well it is only with The Lord help, but I know and believe  Corinthians 12 verse 9;

“But He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness’. Therefore I will most gladly boast all the more about my weakness, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.”

To know His Word, is to know His grace which is sufficient for us. There are times when we do question ourselves and question what we believe. I am sure we have all heard of the phrase ‘when numbers don’t stack up’.

Well I was in those circumstances, and some how my thoughts, were turned to Numbers in the Bible {a Book in the Old Testament’. numbers portrays Jesus Christ, as Our ‘Lifted-up one’.

The people of God were saved to serve. So is every child of God toady. Beware of unbelief. The Apostle Paul tell us in the Book of Galatians 5 verse :“ You were running well. Who prevented you from obeying truth?”

Unbelief hinders blessing, in Hebrews  verse 19, God tells us why we miss out on blessing and can’t enter into blessing, because of unbelief. “So we see that they were unable to enter in because of unbelief”.

Numbers is a book about the Believers walk.  Often times fear keeps us from enjoying all that God wants to give us. We fear what others will say. We fear what might happen if we put our trust completely in our Lord and Our Friend. numbers 3 verse 33: One of the reports that come back from the people who were sent to spy the land, was that there were giants in the land.

This story tells the story of many a Christian life and in part the story of every life. Giants of failure, selfishness, and doubts can be far bigger than the ‘Anakin’ the people feared as giants.

But To Know Him, is to Know His Grace mercy and Forgiveness, and with that fact in mind, it is easier to understand that his Grace is sufficient for us

Book of Numbers is also called the Book of The March and Roll Call, so let us march knowing His sufficiency in anything we do is sufficient for us, knowing our name will be called, in the roll up from the Book of Life.

God Bless.
