Please reconsider this repeat of FAITH (Hebrew Strong’s #530 emunah): an action-oriented word meaning “support.” Western concept of faith places the action on the one you have faith in, such as “faith in God.” But the Hebrew word FAITH places the action on the one who “supports God.” It is not a knowing that God will act, but rather I will do what I can to support God.
HOW CAN I SUPPORT GOD?
One day, when we’ve seen the gates of pearl and streets of gold, we’ll know that it has been worth it all to serve God/Jesus and that nothing in this world can compare with the stash of treasures we’ve been storing up in Heaven. And it’s your faith that will get you to that glorious place.
WHAT CAUSES US TO SACRIFICE FOR GOD? Why would a man or woman leave the comfort of home (temporary or permanently) or their business and go to some strange place and serve (be obedient to) God? It can be assumed they have made a proper evaluation of the circumstance.
REFUSE TO BELIEVE THE ENEMY’S LIES. When the enemy tries to make you feel that your life has no value and that your choice (to support God) was a wrong one, just stop and take a good look around you. Look at the fruit of the lives of those who have chosen the high road and take an equally good look at the fruit of the lives of the compromisers, and you’ll again be set on the proper course in life. ALWAYS TAKE THE HIGH ROAD.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gi3 of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our LORD. (Romans 6:23)
Moses’ Evaluating Faith: Moses knew this thousands of years before Paul wrote it, and based on his knowledge, he made a proper evaluation. He was not willing to live for the moment, and he was not willing to live for the day. He chose to live for the future, realizing that what we do today affects all our tomorrows. He had an eye for eternity.
DON’T LET YOUR SUFFERING/SERVING BE YOUR OWN FAULT. Some people bring reproach upon themselves by their foolishness and lack of wisdom, and there is no reward for bearing this type of reproach. If you act on your own, God is never obligated to bail you out of your trouble. If you do something for HIS sake, He’ll be with you every step of the way. So, let EVALUATING FAITH ARISE IN YOUR HEART TODAY. START LIVING BY FAITH.
