Can we live by FAITH alone?

 

Romans 10:17

King James Version

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, 

and hearing by the word of God.


Is it possible to live by faith alone?

Yes, depending on who, or what, you put your faith in.

I've put my faith in God.

Before becoming born again.

After becoming born again.

I've always known there was a God.

And I know He's looked after me.

He's allowed me to make mistakes.

But when I was ready for His teachings, giving up all other teachings, He sent His Holy Spirit.

Once you've got the LORD's SPIRIT in you, you'll forever be changed.

You will live by faith alone.

You will trust Him completely.

You will rely on the WORD of GOD.

You will search Scripture constantly.

You will let the Holy Spirit explain Scripture to you.

You will follow the Spirit's prompts ALL the time.

You will not be unnerved by the world, and its seeming confusion.

You will understand that ONLY GOD has control over EVERYTHING.

You will wonder why no one seems to notice the stuff you see -- the signs, the symptoms, the symbols showing up all around you.

You will surrender your will to God's greater will.

You will love working for the Lord.

You will begin to see the WHOLE picture.

The pieces of your life's puzzle begin to fit together.

The nonsensical world begins to make sense.

There's really so much more when you become God's own, and the Holy Spirit starts teaching you.

You begin to know who JESUS really is.

You will feel truly loved.

You will marvel at His peace, His elegance, His compassion, His grace, His strength, His power, His glory, and His wisdom.

You begin to have grace, and elegance yourself.

You become strong, and steady.

You begin to know the things that matter most.

You begin to love being alive for Christ.

You realize there are TONS to do for the Lord.

Your life takes on new meaning.

You awaken to your life's purpose.

You're done with the ways of the world.

The world cannot feed your soul.

Only JESUS does.

Only His WORD keeps you afloat.


If you put your faith in the world, you will be on a roller coaster ride.

An RCR.

A roller coaster ride.

Up, and down.

Thrown this way, and that.

Upside down, straight back on.

Cheap thrills, and then what?

What happens next?

You look for the next cheap thrill.

Though they've made it expensive now.

With the Lord, you're on strong foundation.

Forever strong.

Forever steady.

Forever reliable.

JESUS is that ROCK.

1 Corinthians 10:4

King James Version

4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: 

for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: 

and that Rock was Christ.
