Paradox of Faith

In Matt 9:29, Jesus says, "According to your faith be it unto you."  Faith is such a paradox, on one hand you can believe and all things are done unto you.  Yet on the other hand lack of faith keeps you from the promises of God.  Faith is more than closing your eyes and repeating I believe.  It is a deep seated knowledge and belief that God will do everything He says He will do.  Faith is a substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen.  Faith in its simplest terms is trust.  You trust God.  You know that what He says He will do.  Paul put it this way, "Every man may be a liar but the word of God is true." Faith says, "I believe you God and I put my complete and total trust in you."  Faith is an act of the will and then it acts upon what it hears and knows.  People of faith step out and do get things for God.  Moses lead the nation of Israel out of Egypt by faith.  Joshua lead Israel into Canaan by faith.  David battled Goliath by faith.  Peter walked out on the water by faith.  Paul went around the world by faith.  What needs to be conquered in your world.  Today take a step of faith and win the battles you face by faith.  Your promises today are:  Matt 21:21, Rom 1:17, 10:8, 12:3, 1 Cor 2:5, Eph 2:8 Hen 10:23 and 11:1.
