Hear the voice. The voice of God. Set the ear and pick out a not only makes sense, but to understand. God says, speaks to us in a million ways, many times during the day. But if you dont have the courage and you dont want to hear this voice. And I do not mean extreme events in life, when we reject not only the voice of God, but of Himself. Laziness and fear and a lack of courage to change your life, that’s why we do not want to hear the voice of God.
And this voice is in the sound of the wind, bird songs, a bustling city, in the speech of others, or in the books. Voice strong, but not pushy. God to do anything us not force, because it depends on us, if we follow Him. But without God, nothing is not waiting, what is the valuable, only drama, that leads to indifference and all what we observe in the world today: addiction, divorce, depression, crime, suicide, lack of morality in politics or business…? Listen to and hear. Thus says the Lord.
We believe that love is only a feeling, meanwhile, love is also responsible for each other is it also fidelity. If someone really loves it and believes him who loves. If loves, it has hope for it, what puts longing and desire.
1 Peter 4:8
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
Our love is directed toward Jesus, but also towards other people. Love must be persistent.
Believe it means to be sure of what is expected to be convinced of the existence of that which is invisible. Faith consists in the fact that we trust the word of God more than fantasies. Faith involves trust, but also obedience.
Faith works through love. It is a grace, a gift of God, happiness for the man who has received this gift. Man of faith everywhere he saw traces of God, his faith pierces the thickest walls. Anyone who believes, recognizes in their difficult experiences God’s will. To believe is to say: building on God, trust Him, from His perspective, to see their lives. Faith also means giving oneself to God. Faith is crossing our earthly, human reality.
How many of us it is, so many one could create a definitions of faith.
For me, faith is confidence in heart that God is and He loves me.
When many years ago, I heard just such a word, although understand it, I accepted it in my heart, was not to such a easy. I said then: God, if you are, then prove it to me in some way. I want to be sure. God healed me during one of the prayers and it was His answer to my doubts.
The Bible definition of faith in Hebrews.
By Faith We Understand
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for.
3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.
5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.”a For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.
I would like to share with you my opinion about faith, hope and love. They are closely related and dependent on each other.
God endowed Christians, endowed me all that I need. He gave us three things that do I use: faith, hope and love. He gave me so much, that was enough for me and that I may share it with others. We do not know how much we have faith, until it is tested after by experience.
I recently had a difficult time, when God tested me these three things. And I know that I was able to pass by faith in Jesus, the hope of eternal life and the love that I have for the Church.
I would like to encourage you to strive, care, seek faith, hope and love in your life.
Complacency or self worship lead sooner or later to a spiritual death, because are something contrary to nature. Prayer, the community of the faithful, meditation, sacrifice is something originally. But above all, they are a spiritual tool leading to happiness.
Hope feeds on faith. Without faith there is no hope. Hope is needed when what are watching our eyes, denying what learned our faith: that we are not alone, that the hardship and suffering is not due to leave us by God, that when we most lack the presence of God, He is the closest with us. Hope is perseverance. Often associated with it longing, desire, dreams of happiness.
Hope is certainly true that will be fulfilled everything that God wants. Not what I want. Christian hope is neither an abstraction nor wishful thinking, but rests on the solid foundation that is the person of Jesus Christ. Man of hope confidently looks to the future and looks forward to its fulfillment in a happy eternity. His hope is in fact anchored in God.
Peace and Hope
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, wea have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And web boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but wec also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”
The Bible tells us that it is enough if our faith will be the size of a mustard seed. Even you can not see when you hold them in your hand. But God sees even the smallest faith in your heart. I read that the mustard seed grows about 60 cm shrub, the flowers turn into pods of grains. The pods when they are very ripe, break and throw a grain of mustard seed, which give rise to the life of the next plant.
Is your life is based on faith in Jesus and His Word or faith in yourself and your own abilities?
