THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
FAITH THAT’S ALIVE AND ACTIVE IS THE FAITH THAT YOU HAVE FOR TODAY
So often, we have FAITH for the FUTURE. We believe “ONE DAY” God is going to do something GREAT. One day we’ll get a good break. One day we’ll start to FEEL better. One day we’ll SEE a problem turn around. It’s good to have faith for the future and believe that God is going to take care of us, but we can become so future-minded that we lose sight of the fact that God wants to do something great in our life TODAY. TODAY, God wants to show you His FAVOR. Today, God wants to AMAZE you with His GOODNESS. He is called “The Great I Am,” not “The Great I WAS,” or “The Great I WILL Be.” God is ALWAYS in the present.
It’s good to have FAITH for the future, but you also need to start releasing your faith for right NOW. The Bible says, “NOW faith is.” The faith that’s really ALIVE and ACTIVE is the faith that you have for TODAY. Every morning we should get up with the attitude, “Something good is going to happen to me TODAY!”
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1, NKJV
