Lack of Faith
Pray in faith
There is no doubt our country is in trouble, the list of issues present day is astounding, here are a few:
- Terrorism threats
- Huge unemployment (93 million out of the workforce)
- Growing threats from enemies: Russia, China, N. Korea, Iran
- Debt – $20 Trillion
- Corrupt leadership
- Increases in violent crime
- Increases in drug abuse
- Decline in morality
The issues facing the world are just as bad:
- Mideast turmoil
- Financial uncertainty – EU
- Distrust in world leaders
Jesus spoke to us about times such as these, saying there would be a time of great turmoil such as the world had not seen. We are told to put on the full armor of God to protect ourselves during these times. It is easy to lose ‘Faith’ when one bad news story leads to another and it seems like it will never end. We need to continue in the Word of God, build our ‘Faith’ and find peace. One way to do so, is through prayer. Though the worlds news does seem hopeless as I read it, I find myself more and more, communicating to Jesus over my concerns. I find there are different ways I pray, sometimes it is asking for peace through the turmoil. I pray words of thanks for the many things God has provided me. There are times I pray with authority in Jesus name, when I’ve seen acts of injustice, corruption and deceitfulness, asking Jesus to expose or correct the wrong. These are moments when my faith seems at its strongest. Isn’t that how it should be? Prayer with FAITH? So long as my requests are aligned with God’s, God will act. In other words, asking for a million dollars will be wasted words. In the past 18 months, I’ve witnessed some amazing results, not asking for personal gain. God has already provided for me.
In the beginning of Mark 6, Jesus was in his hometown, unable to heal. It wasn’t because he didn’t care, it was because of a LACK OF FAITH.
4 Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.” 5 He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. 6 He was amazed at their lack of faith.
Believers, I doubt the best minds, the greatest wealth and the collected leadership of the world working in harmony could put a dent in the troubles that exist today. KNOW THIS! If we PRAY IN FAITH, without stopping, these issues will taken care of.
Believers, let’s work together, starting today!
