He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” Mark4:39-40.

 

One of the first realities we must face in life if we are to survive this pilgrimage of faith is that troubles are a given. We have to fight daily justtrying to live in this rapidly changing world. Sometimes the burdens can be so heavy, the criticism so severe, the opposition so great, that we wonder if it is even worth the effort. Trouble never takes a holiday; it never takes a rest. So to be able to survive, we need extreme faith to withstand these extreme times.


This is important because every now and then special challenges come our way and we want to be able to stand firm. We need stubborn faith to hold us when we are called upon to experience those unusual circumstances—those “exception to the rule” situations. You want to be able to stand when your children disappoint you. You want to be able to stand when the spouse walks out on you. You want to be able to stand when you lose your job and the unpaid bills begin to pile up. You want to be able to stand when everything you touch disintegrates, when your plans fail, your dreams vanish, and opportunities dissolve. You want to be able to stand when the storms of life are raging and burning worlds are on fire.


Surface faith will not do. Shallow faith will not suffice. We need extreme faith for these extreme times. Extreme faith is the faith that freely allows God to manage our state of affairs. Who knows about what we are dealing with more thoroughly than omniscient God? Extreme faith believes God can and God will manage the situation, however hurtful and trying it may be, in a way that will result in our good. Extreme faith ultimately and completely rests on the extreme promises of God.

Praised the Lord for the word faith. Have you ever been in a situation that came out of no where in your life, that wanted you to step back on the plans that the Lord has given you.

 

As the enemy sabotage and poison your motivation about the God given dream are vision. It's time to used your faith after doing all you can do and just stand still and wait on the Lord. Please read Gen. 50:20 and be bless.
