Steps of Faith… Like a Child


As Christians, we are all familiar with the importance of faith. There are many references in the Bible about faith but here are several faith scriptures for us to consider…

Hebrews 11:1 gives us a biblical meaning, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for…  the evidence of things not seen.”

1 John 5:4 tells us “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.”

1 Corinthians 16:13 reminds us, “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”

Matthew 17:20 says, “if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”

Mark 10:52 says, “And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.”

Romans 10:52, “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”

Matthew 18:3, “I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

So as we look at these few scriptures, we see that faith is believing, though not seeing. Faith gives us strength, personal healing, salvation, and enables us to overcome and eventually walk in the miraculous. So obviously, there are levels of faith. These are the words that the Lord gave me… “There are stair-steps of faith” and “faith fuels the miraculous”. So to walk as overcomers, we have to build up our Most Holy Faith. We do this by reading His Word, praying in the Spirit and laying everything before the Lord for Him to take care of it and trusting Him, like a child, to do so. A child trusts a parent to take care of everything… and so it is with God. That is what He wants us to do.

An analogy that I heard recently referred to Faith as a Post Office. The concern or problem comes in and the Post Office sends it immediately to God…

No Job— Ship Directly to God

No Income— Ship Directly to God

Sickness— Ship Directly to God

Fears— Ship Directly to God

Any Worries— Ship Directly to God

That is the level of faith that He wants us to have… where we trust Him with everything with a “child-like faith” and hold onto nothing of this world, allowing Him to be the Provider, Healer, Redeemer, etc. The problem is that if we hold onto anything, we tie His Hands and He won’t pry it from us. Doubt negates faith. So think about it… Are you at that point to be a “Faith Post Office”, shipping all mail of fears or worries or concerns immediately to God and trusting Him like a child that it is taken care of?
