Saturday Steps of Faith # 30

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.

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Cor. 9:6-8
Today I just want to take a few moments and give praise to my Faithful God.

This last year has been full of challenges, but God has been Faithful. There have been times when the enemy would come and whisper in my ear, "You can't afford to give that. Where is it going to come from?" Sowing seeds of fear, hoping they would take root.

And yet I knew down deep in the bottom of my soul, God has always been Faithful to provide for my every need.

This week He has done it again. We have been blessed financially in an unexpected way. As I sit here and think about it, tears fill my eyes. What love! I feel so unworthy. Any yet He loves, abundantly, overflowing, endlessly.

Throughout His word He says,

  • Ask - and I'll answer.
  • Seek - and you'll find.
  • Knock - and the door will be opened.
  • Give - and it will be given to you.
  • Share - and I will bless.
  • Go - and I will go with you.
  • Trust - and I will be found faithful.
Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your
love and faithfulness. Psalm 115:1

So today I give Him the Glory. The Glory only He deserves. I will continue to walk by faith, and not by sight. You are MY GOD and I will forever love and trust You!

How about you?

Who are you putting your faith in?

What a beautiful post, Lisa...oh, how He loves us!

I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I read the comments you leave on others' and I visit a lot of the same people! :-) Those comments are always full of wisdom and encouragement. Though they are meant for others, they have blessed and encouraged me, as well...thank you.

Our God is soooo faithful! He's so good to us! It is just Awesome to hear about your unexpected financial blessing! You can TRUST HIM!! Years and years went by that on paper I didn't make enough to pay the bills let alone eat or tithe...but I stepped out in a huge way (in my mind) and God stepped out huger..I know,not a word, but that's what He did!! He is so much bigger and more able than we can fathom!! Humbling that He loves us so much!
Love you,

Lisa, you always share nuggets that uplift powerfully. Keep being transparent sister and talking about all the ways you see GOD at work in your life and that of your family. GOD is using your life/your voice/your heart to touch others.

GOD is indeed FAITHFUL. Beautiful testimony of HIS GRACE AND PROVISION. Beautiful thing is we don't have to worry about "being worthy". JESUS makes us worthy through HIM. All is unto HIS glory and how awesome is that?! Amen.

Lots of love.
