Our faith grows and develops as we cling to Him awaiting the final redemption of our body.(Romans 8:23) Faith is both a gift of God and an act of our will. We are to personally exercise faith, but the decision to do so is helped along by His gift of hunger for more of Him. It reminds me of that popular soft drink slogan, “Obey your thirst”—God wants us to step out in the “obedience by faith” to receive what He has made us thirsty for.
The proof of our faith is found in our actions, because people behave only in a manner which conforms to what they really believe. When we take action (the assurance and conviction aspects of faith), it grows. And as our faith grows, hope becomes stronger, in turn fostering greater faith, snowballing to promote growth in both our maturity and effectual use by God.
My child, I am the living water. I am the only One who satisfies your thirst. Drink deeply of Me today. Be filled to overflowing and let me spill over onto everyone and everything in your life today. Drink My child, Drink of Me alone.
Blessed are you My child, who hunger and thirst for righteousness. Blessed are you who are pure in heart and seek to know Me day and night. For My light will break through like the dawn and you will be led out with rejoicing and praise. You will be satisfied with good things because I delight in you. Do not fear when times get tough and days are dark. For I illumine your path. Walk in My light and truth. The days are getting darker and times are tougher, but I am in control. I am making My bride ready for My return. Don’t cling to earthly things. Keep your eyes focused on Me and Me alone. Delight in Me. I am coming quickly and My reward is with Me. Rev. 21:12
