“Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,” (Romans 4:20 NIV)
God has given you enough faith for your journey. Whatever your path is, God has provided.
Paul is talking about Abraham. He is “father of many nations” (Romans 4:18 NIV). He followed God’s commands his entire life. He left his homeland to form a new nation. Time and time again, he trusted God’s leading. God gave him the faith he needed, when he needed it to do what he needed to do. God has done the same for you. Whatever faith you need, God will provide:
“For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.” (Romans 12:3 NIV)
Whatever faith you need, God will provide.
We don’t need faith to climb a mountain until we have a mountain to climb. Abraham didn’t need faith to leave his homeland until God asked him too. We don’t need faith for something God has for us 10 years from now. We only need faith for today.
Moses led the people out of Egypt. The Israelites spent 40 years in the desert. When they complained about lack of food, God provided for them:
“Then the Lord spoke to Moses. He said, “I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people must go out each day. Have them gather enough bread for that day. Here is how I will test them. I will see if they will follow my directions.” (Exodus 16:4 NIV)
God wanted to know if the Israelites trusted Him.
“The people of Israel did as they were told. Some gathered a lot, and some gathered a little. When they measured it out, the one who gathered a lot didn’t have too much. And the one who gathered a little had enough. Everyone gathered only what they needed.” (Exodus 16:17-18 NIV)
God provided what each person needed in the amount they needed. The only instruction, don’t keep any until morning. Just like the Israelites, God provides fresh bread for our lives each day. We each need a different amount for what the Lord is calling us to do. Whatever our divine purpose is, God will give us the faith to accomplish it.
We each have divine tasks. In order to accomplish our task, God fills us with faith. Whatever your facing today, no matter how difficult, God will give you the faith you need. You have enough. God will provide. He’ll give you exactly what you need, when you need it.
Question of the Day:
How has God given you the faith you need for today?
