Hebrews 11:1 The Right Now Faith

****Has there ever been a time in your life where everything around you seemed to be falling apart...tearing at the seam? Have you ever felt as if you were troubled on every side? Well Jesus wants to encourage you. Jesus wants you to know that you have the God-given ability to call those things that are not as though they were.

If you look at your circumstances, you may not be able to see beyond the trials and tribulations. This is why we are admonished to "walk by faith, not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5:7). And, I'm here to tell you that "eyes have not seen, nor ears heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him" (1 Corinthians 2:9).

It's time for us to forget those things that are behind, and reach forth unto those things that are before and press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. It's time for "Now faith", a faith that's rooted and grounded in Jesus as Lord and Savior. It's time for a faith that understands and believes in the Word of God. It's time out for cheap grace and hanging on to "mama's coattail." We can't continue to get by on what "mama 'nem" told us about the Lord. We have to have a right "Now faith!" Oh-- Say, "Amen" somebody!

"Now faith" moves us beyond old ways of thinking. "Now faith" allows us to believe God is able to do what He chooses to do, when He chooses to do it, how He chooses. It's that same "Now faith" that says, forget what happened yesterday, and it's that same "Now faith" that says, don't worry about tomorrow. Matt 6:33 Hallelujah! I'm talking about "Now faith." "Amen," somebody.

When some one reminds you of your past, tell him, "Now faith."
