Our faith is not dependent on our feelings, but is realized through our actions.
FAITH IS SPELLED -- R-I-S-K
Playing it safe isn't faith. There is this tendency to have everything predictable and under control, but it results in a quite boring life with little promise associated with it. God wants to have a people who are willing to go for it.
There is this willingness to sink, look bad, or even be insulted that is associated with the life of faith where we are not as concerned about our reputation because our desperation has taken over.
God responds to persistence. Faith does not take "no" for an answer or quit. It is better to "go for it" with all the adventure, excitement, and wonder rather than having all the answers and everything figured out.
STEPPING OUT ONTO THE WATER
2 Corinthians 5:7 - "For we walk by faith, not by sight."
It goes the same for those who, although they don't feel it, still step out into the waters with Jesus and watch Him do His miracles. Our actions speak louder than what we feel. Because, whether we feel it or not, the bottom line is whether we took action on it. Our actions make our faith complete. Faith without actions is dead. (James 2:14-26)
WE NEED A REVOLUTION IN OUR HEART
A revolution is defined as a "turning." God wants to turn our lives in His direction to follow in the footsteps of faith where we live dependent upon Him in every aspect of advancing in His purpose for our lives. Revolution is also defined as a change in government. God wants to govern our lives to live in His presence with a radical faith that won't EVER GIVE UP until the result comes. (see Luke 18:1-8).
In essence, faith is totally focused on the goal without concern of the extremes needed to get there. God has given every one of us that measure of faith, residing in us, ready to be activated in a revolutionary way. Allow God to start this faith revolution in your heart today.
