You need to be grounded in your faith walk.
If your not grounded in your faith walk, if your wavering, if you go back and forth in your belief, your not grounded.
Have you lost your joy? Have life’s circumstances knocked the joy out of your faith? Are you coming to church on auto pilot?
Don’t walk in faith by your feelings, you may be down, there might be tough times, everything might be coming at you at once right now but you need to believe and stand strong in your faith.
The world will always criticize you, they will always point fingers at you. They will laugh at the fact that things happen to us…like being Christian protects us against bad times. Stand strong in your faith know you are different, that you are special, that you are a child of the most high God, hold on to that.
Here are 3 things to remember while walking your faith walk.
1. Remember your born again
2. Obey the word
3. Operate in agape love
The most important of these are love…there are more references to love than any other thing in the bible. Yet we cannot love unconditionally, we attach strings to our love, conditions, terms…we will love on “our” terms.
People will do things to you, they will hurt you, disappoint you, they will lie, cheat and steal against you but you must be grounded in your faith and be able to love them anyway.
Your thinking are you crazy? Do you know what they did? No…that’s not happening, love them after what they did to me? You must be crazy!
You want to strike back, get even, slap someone but you have to remind yourself your a child of God.
You must love one another no matter what, you must show love even to your enemies, even if it kills you…
See there are 2 kinds of people in this world, grass people and flower people
Flowers grow and then they fall off. You cannot attached it back on, they are done, once off, there is no reattaching them.
God will cut them off for a reason, leave it be…let them go, don’t try to reattach, it’s happened for a reason.
Grass people turn brown they are dormant but not dead…. they might not be in your life for a while, you might be astranged but they are always there, waiting to come back.
Here’s the thing, the seed of the word will always produce a harvest in your life…
You just have to remember to guard your heart from the bitterness of what people have done to you.
Guard your heart from people renting space in there, that are not going any where.
Not everyone is going to like you or approve of you.
Guard your heart from pride, from gossip, from bitterness.
Remember you are destined to live your lives goal. You are determined to be grounded in the word.
Your life is like a ship sometimes it’s calm and sometimes it’s rough.
But through it all stand firm and never let the issues of life shake your faith.
So today my friends, no matter what life throws at you, no matter how many times you are hurt, no matter what storm you may be going through now, remember to stand firm in your faith and love one another, God has the rest.
