“Without the Spirit of God, we can do nothing. We are ships without wind. We are useless.”

Charles Spurgeon
Hebrews 11:1 TGN states, "To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see. 2 *It was by their faith that people of ancient times won God’s approval. 3 *It is by faith that we understand that the universe was created by God’s word, so that what can be seen was made out of what cannot be seen. 4 *It was faith that made Abel offer to God a better sacrifice than Cain’s. Through his faith he won God’s approval as a righteous man, because God himself approved of his gifts. By means of his faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead. 5 *It was faith that kept Enoch from dying. Instead, he was taken up to God, and nobody could find him, because God had taken him up. The scripture says that before Enoch was taken up, he had pleased God. 6 *No one can please God without faith, for whoever comes to God must have faith that God exists and rewards those who seek him. 7 *It was faith that made Noah hear God’s warnings about things in the future that he could not see. He obeyed God and built a boat in which he and his family were saved. As a result, the world was condemned, and Noah received from God the righteousness that comes by faith." 

Most humans are born with five senses which they trust in what they can feel, hear, taste and most importantly see. Usually, it is challenging for individuals to trust in something that cannot be proven with our senses. That is why so many do not believe in God because they “have not” or “cannot” see Him with their eyes. Christians are commanded to have faith in the impossible (the just shall live by faith); to believe in a God that heals the wounded and give the blind their sight. However, it sometimes is very difficult to trust God when we sense that we are being pulled in an unknown territory or direction that we have never explored. 

J. Oswald Sanders said that “faith enables the believing soul to treat the future as present and the invisible as seen.” Faith sees what possibly will be. Faith commits to things. Faith acts. Faith takes risks. Faith leaves its comfort zones to do things for the Lord. And faith that doesn’t produce works is a faith that doesn’t work.

In every generation, some do what is expected. What is safe and comfortable. They follow the crowd, do the bare minimum, and go along with current tendencies. But some are like the Benjamites during the reign of King Saul. Willing to place a higher emphasis on Truth than ease or desire. Ready to do bold matters, even if they are criticized or questioned. To seek God and His ways, even when the world pressures them to conform.

When we step out in faith, God will work. But if we do not step out in faith, then not much is going to happen. God works through people who are applying faith. So, I am here to take that step, so God will make my works prosperous.

 Two Prophets told me when I decide to step out in Faith, God will make a way and prepare “Your Path” as the Gift of Creativity will flow “Through Your Hands” as the Inspiration of the Holy Spirit will propel You forward into uncharted Territory, but as You begin and take a "Leap of Faith" so shall You begin to realize what is Truly within You to accomplish for my Kingdom and the feeling of Accomplishment in Your own Soul. This will bring a smile to your face as this Part-time Adventure will one day lead to Full-Time Residual Income as I will Bless the work of Your Hands says the Lord to You this day. 

In today’s generation, what kind of a person are you? Are you willing to step out in faith, be bold, brave, and let God lead you while opening your eyes to understand how He sees the world? I signed with American Writers & Artists Institute today to help me on this path. So, I expect my writings will drastically improve, successful, and soon enter a career change. Here I am taking the “step of faith” to see where this will take me. 

Now, it’s your turn. 

What does your future look like in the eyes of God?
