I have decided to be more conscious about my faith. As a result, I am discovering that I am doing more things when my initial reaction is to say, “No”. Every single time, I walk away from these experiences with at least one blessing. Without exception, I reflect while smiling and say, “Look at God.”
“…. 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
Recently I heard a Project Leader speaking about a societal problem. I found it interesting when he said, “I don’t believe we will solve this problem in my lifetime.” Maybe we won’t, but his statement alone suggested to me the possibility that he should not be leading. Lack of belief often times result in a lack of passion. A person of passion is a person of conscious purpose. A person of conscious purpose will work for resolution when one who lacks belief will not.
How many people are following people who truly do not believe that which they profess? It could be in the areas of faith, love, profession, and/or as it pertains to social issues. Being led by those who lack faith can be contagious and in fact a waste of our precious time.
As I work on growing conscious in my faith, my ears are sensitive to those who speak words that demonstrate a lack in theirs especially from positions of leadership. I am a visionary. Hence, I know that it is not in my best interest to congregate with a bunch of people who are not committed to having a strong belief in the manifestation of that which the natural eye does not yet see. As a Christian, such association could be dangerous. We may forget that our God routinely does the impossible. Nothing is too big—or too small—for Him, if we believe.
It is easy to be misled when you do not know yourself and when you are unsure about that which you serve. Many Christians struggle accepting that God has great things for them because they do not feel worthy and they do not believe He is the great I AM. Many Christians say that we have faith, but never step outside of that which is comfortable. Thank God mountains can be moved with mustard seed sized faith.
You know, there are SUPER talented Christians afraid to let their light shine brightly. Far too many are walking around with dim light, if the bulb is working at all. As I grow more conscious in my faith, I find it hard not to share God’s favor upon me especially when I have ventured into uncomfortable territory. Know that there are times when you will receive your biggest blessings by believing in those things that others have in fact given up. Know that your belief will motivate you to pursue things that others may doubt. Know that even naysayers watch, but they too will respect His work.
Got faith? Share your blessings. Share how you have witnessed God’s movement of mountains. Spread the Good News. If he did it for you, He can do it for someone else. Bless someone with that knowledge.
