".....The amount you give will determine the amount you get back." Luke 6:38
How much faith you have in Christ will also determine the amount you get back.
Faith is where we put our trust in....Faith is exercised when we believe in what we cannot see but still have hope in Christ. So we can put our 'faith' elsewhere -
1. in our job
2. in our economy
3. in our government
4. in our lover
5. in the situation we are in
6. the weather forecast
7. in money
We can all place our faith in several places listed above....
But God wants us to put our faith in Him. So when we put our faith in the RIGHT PLACE, we will get a positive result...because whatever God promises in the Bible, will come to pass only BY our FAITH IN HIM. All through Luke chapters, many miracles happened and many peoples got healed because of their FAITH IN JESUS. When they exercised their faith (in Jesus), their prayers got answered.
"So pay attention to how you hear. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given..." Luke 8:18
When you listen carefully to what God says in the Bible, more understanding will be given you.
"When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped and all was calm. Then he asked them, "Where is your faith?" Luke 8:24-25
How much you give your faith to JESUS??? Or have you given your faith to other places? Have you put your faith to 'doubts, unbelief, negative thoughts, bad news' more than JESUS?????
Let's change the way we think and what we meditate on all day long, are you meditating on the negative, and bad stuffs? Meditating on something = you keep on thinking upon something.
Think positive for now.....reject the negative noises telling you, you have no hope, God will not help you, save you out of the bad situation, you will stay that way forever.....NO, SAY NO to those noises, they are not from God.
"And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?" Luke 12:28
"If you will only OBEY me, you will have plenty to eat." Isaiah 1:19
