There are these faith decisions in life that the believer in the Lord Jesus Christ makes that will cost him or her something. It’s like a burden on the heart as the spirit rejoices in the truth from the word of God. As a matter of fact the word of God gives us as believers the instruction on what to do with boldness, and a courageous attitude to walk by faith. It doesn’t have to look like something that someone else has done although others may play their part in it. Believing on the Son of God, whom the Father sent will make walking by faith worth the test and trials of trying out of obedience. It’s because He is the faithful Son who has done it all before.


My old life couldn’t teach me and a dark heart with no joy was a part of me until Jesus taught me how to walk by faith. Weariness to do well takes place in the flesh however so the spirit must rule much greater for a faithful walk by faith. An internal battle would quickly happen between the spirit and the flesh. The flesh and spirit were against one another but the conflict couldn’t withstand God’s love for me. When I came out of the world I was worried about how people would see me. My life needed the Shepherds leading and only Jesus Christ could do it.


When there is peace in our spirit and He gives us rest for our souls, our belief in Him is positively affected. This rest helps settle our hearts no matter what task or challenge is at hand. Only one God is trustworthy enough here and our Christ likeness because of His word is able to get perfected. It’s because Christ is the unmovable one that we are joint-heirs with. Our growth in knowing God gets more joined into Him. He is reigning for once while the elements of the world become like bare naked products that doesn’t get in the way of our trust in God. It has been edifying to trust God who is powerful and know the nature of life full well.


In my personal walk by faith I’m led to tell someone about Jesus in season and out of season, and God does it with His spirit of truth. For this I’m grateful for the nature of the Holy Spirit because who the Son has set free is free with truth. No matter what the cause the truth has its way by faith of taking one through the fire and trials of life without doubts. Christ has His way of possibly challenging the doubts when they arise. I believe it’s because faith counteracts the doubtful heart by the increasing knowledge of God in one’s life. With Him encompasses a hope which supersedes the natural. It’s because the Lord Jesus teaches us how to live a life that is pleasing to God the Father in the Heavenly realm.


Walking by faith however taught me how to live in the Kingdom of Heaven. With that I resolve that going by faith is beyond what the natural man comprehends. I resolve that the supernatural working of the Holy Spirit teaches one in the calling that no matter what may come unexpected such as suffering, being weary, in issues with others or with issues of the body or the mind. There is always a measure of faith that is released by the power of God which can withstand it all. Keep the faith everyone!


Being in the presence of God while going by faith begins to be what matters the most because His perfect love cast out any fear. There is a trustworthy life walking with God. There is a protection that lasts because God covers us by the blood of Jesus. There are human problems that get resolved because God understands the depths of the issues of the heart. In this same area God heals and restores the matters of the heart instead of just avoid them. Jesus has a personification by God’s will to eternally give us life as we keep our faith in Him. We can walk with a loving God, who gives us a life that is abundant with Him.


“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.” (Colossians 3:1, KJV)
