The Father’s Heart
Does your heart feel unsteady? Are you wearied by worry? Have you forgotten what faith can do? Don’t be afraid to place your hope in me. Your faith is pleasing to me.True faith is believing when it’s easier to doubt. True faith is knowing I AM on your side when your back is against the wall. True faith is choosing to walk it out when you want to stop. Be true to your faith, and watch what I can do through your faith. Your faith is priceless. I Love You ~<3~
2 Corinthians 6:6-16
With pure heart, clear head, steady hand; in gentleness, holiness, and honest love; 7 when we're telling the truth, and when God's showing his power; when we're doing our best setting things right; 8 when we're praised, and when we're blamed; slandered, and honored; true to our word, though distrusted; 9 ignored by the world, but recognized by God; terrifically alive, though rumored to be dead; beaten within an inch of our lives, but refusing to die; 10 immersed in tears, yet always filled with deep joy; living on handouts, yet enriching many; having nothing, having it all. 11 Dear, dear Corinthians, I can't tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life. 12 We didn't fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren't small, but you're living them in a small way. 13 I'm speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively! 14 Don't become partners with those who reject God. How can you make a partnership out of right and wrong? That's not partnership; that's war. Is light best friends with dark? 15 Does Christ go strolling with the Devil? Do trust and mistrust hold hands? 16 Who would think of setting up pagan idols in God's holy Temple? But that is exactly what we are, each of us a temple in whom God lives. God himself put it this way: "I'll live in them, move into them; I'll be their God and they'll be my people.
No one can please God without faith, for whoever comes to God must have faith that God exists and rewards those who seek him.
