Abraham, Moses, Joshua…and You!
Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
– Matthew 6:33
Do you need more faith in your heart account? Well, put some in there! You can have as much as you want. How much Word you put in your heart determines how much faith you’re going to have available when you need it.
It’s up to you. No one else can keep you from making that deposit either. If you can get a Bible, you can make a deposit every day. In fact, you’d better make a deposit every day, because chances are you’ll need to make a withdrawal sometime during the day. And withdrawals without deposits can leave you stranded without sufficient spiritual resources to get the job done.
Some people want to float through life without putting out the effort to build up their spiritual account. They want to enjoy the heavenly blessings, but they don’t want to develop the faith it takes to bring those blessings down to earth!
Don’t be one of those people! Don’t expect to get something from God without faith. It’s not going to happen.
Abraham had to act in faith to get Isaac. Moses had to act in faith to get the Israelites to the Promised Land. Joshua had to act in faith to get the walls of Jericho to come down. Rahab had to act in faith to keep her part of the wall around Jericho from falling down. And if Abraham, Moses, Joshua and Rahab had to have faith, then you have to have faith too. All of the great victories written in Hebrews 11 were manifest in the earth by and through faith! That’s just the way it is.
That’s why the most important thing you have to do in this life is to keep your heart full of the Word of God’because everything else can be taken care of if that account is full. That’s what Jesus meant in Matthew 6:33.
When you put the Word first, all things will come to you…including more faith. So don’t wait any longer! Get into the Word, put it in your heart, and watch your faith account grow!
