Put Your Faith in Jesus

Put Your Faith in Jesus

When the challenges come, and we get desperate, it is not our desperation that moves God to move for us, it is our faith. The people who came to Jesus in desperation had to be redirected into faith before He could help them. The Nobleman’s Son (John 4:46-54) was  focused on the challenge. Jesus talks to him about believing, and redirects his attention, so that he goes away focused on faith in Jesus Words, not his crisis.

The Father of the Epileptic boy in Mark 9:20 – 27 cried out to Jesus in desperation, and the boy even has an epileptic fit right in front of Jesus, but Jesus is not moved by the chaos, he turns to the Father and begins to coach him in believing. Redirecting his desperation into faith before helping him. Desperate circumstances make us cry out in desperation, but faith in God is what causes Him to move in the most impossible circumstances.

The world is full of desperate people whose circumstances are not changing, but the Bible tells us that faith is the victory that overcomes the world and all things are possible to him who believes. Faith is the key to bringing change to desperate circumstances, allowing God’s power to move in those circumstances. No matter what you are facing, put your faith and confidence in the God who can turn it around. Nothing is too hard or impossible for him. He can and will turn your situation around and bring you out on top, giving you the victory. Do not get discouraged, but realise that there is hope. Keep your eyes on God and His Word, put your trust in Him and believe that He can turn it around!

Notable versus:

Mark 9:23

:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

1 John 5:4:4

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith.
