Hebrews 11:27 – By faith [Moses] left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw Him who is invisible.
Either we live by faith or we live by fear. Moses teaches us that living by faith rather than by fear is a choice.
He went to the most powerful man in the world and said, “You know those slaves that are building all your pyramids? I’m taking them, and we’re all leaving. You’re not going to have slave labor anymore. Let my people go.”
Moses had every reason to be afraid. He was going up against a powerful man who was considered a god, and whatever Pharaoh said, you had to do. What he said was the law. And here came Moses and declared, “We aren’t going to do what you say anymore. I’m not afraid of you because I report to a higher authority.” That took some guts!
Do you want that same kind of faith in your life so you can overcome your fear? The closer you get to God, the more you’re going to be filled with faith. The further away you get from God, the more you’re going to be filled with fear.
I cannot overemphasize the importance of faith for the rest of your life. The Bible says that whatever is not of faith is sin. The Bible also says that without faith it is impossible to please God. How many times did you please God this week?
Do you want something to change in your life? Instead of complaining, start believing. God is not moved by complaints. God is moved by faith, a truth we see in these words of Jesus: “According to your faith let it be done to you” (Matthew 9:29). You get to choose what He does in your life.
Here’s the key: What matters is not the size of your faith but the size of the God you put it in. A little faith in a big God gets big results!
HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEK
