Saturday Steps of Faith #25

Steps of Faith

What are you believing God for?

Do you trust God enough to take Him at His word?

Not only for your neighbor or friend..., but for you?

Saturday Steps of Faith is our opportunity to publicly claim His promises for our lives. It is the place where we believe God for things great and small.

He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20
How's your faith? Do you have any mountains that need moving? What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of this verse? Is it a sick loved one who needs healing? How about a financial need you have no way to meet? Is your child wandering far from the Lord? What is your mountain?

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3

Lord, I praise your Holy Name! You Oh Lord, are in the mountain moving business. When we seek You, we find You. When we call to You, You answer. You are working and moving, even when we cannot yet see. Lord, I believe in You and I believe You! I am looking to the sky, waiting for the mountain to get out of the way. I love You and take great delight in You! You are my God!

How about you? Will you please join me?

Yes, I, too, am believing God for the very steps of my life in Him.

I have seen incredible reconciliation this week between me and my sister. He truly moved a mountain!

I am believing that God will completely heal little Abby. She had her surgery 9/10 to replace the piece of skull that was removed several months ago to give her brain room as it was so swollen from the auto accident. Today, we are believing God for the current swelling from this surgery to go down and allow permanent healing.

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!

Hi Lisa,
I was hoping you were OK, I checked in on you a few times, I thought maybe a vacation? We also had a few things happen. Last night I was asked to keep a friend of my son's for a few weeks, he isn't enrolled in school, and had only a few things to wear.(His mother has found herself homeless.)We have been busy today. But God is so good, there is a woman at our church who homeschools her children and she is giving me a whole curriculum! How Awesome is that?!! Didn't want you to think I wasn't believing God for something today..believing Him for every step I take right now!! Mountains maybe, but My God is leading the way!!

It seems that no matter what I entrust to God, He takes care of it in ways that I could not even imagine, and I have trusted Him with some pretty big, nearly impossible things. And still He has come through. My life has been simply filled with miracles, like riding on the wings of eagles. I'm not good at the meme thing -- only tried it once and really messed it up (had to have the blog owner go in and fix it for me!)

You're right, we need to believe His promises even when everything seems to be falling apart. I am believing that God will provide for us as my husband (Dave) is not making enough in his new job. And I am believing that He will provide for me and the girls while Dave is gone and unable to do the things he usually does, like fix the toilet, the lawnmower, the dishwasher (all those things have gone wrong recently! But God will provide.)

Thanks for your reminder to believe Him!

Love, Jenny

I'm believing God for revival in my family. The Lord has begun an incredible work in my marriage... in bringing us to a place of truly putting Him in the center of it all, and I pray the same for my children... for revival :)
