Once again God give us all a measure of Faith , we didn't work for it. It was God Given<quoted text>
Good. So we agree he was saved by God's grace just as we are. What would've happened if Noah had only relied on God's grace and he had not followed through with the commands he had been given. In short, was there something he had to do in order to accept the grace God offered?
God has given everyone a measure a faith, specific enough for each circumstance and situation we face. Believe it and start using it! Believing isnt the same as having faith, just like walking isnt the same as having legs. Faith means using your legs for something. Faith means being bold and courageous to launch out and take on every challenge that comes your way!
We need to exercise our faith , like our muscles to develope it and help it grow.
So what we may fail a number of times, but we can't quite.
a baby falls many times before he finally walks .
When God created us, He made us with a body, soul and spirit. He gave us individual talents and a personal measure of faith, designed to conquer our own challenges and circumstances. No one can ever say that they cant get out of any circumstance, because ever since the Father made us, He also gave us the Faith, the will and the capacity to overcome every situation in life.
If we are going to please God , its got to be through the faith God gaves us.
Habakkuk 2:2-4 says:Then the Lord answered me and said: "Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it because it will surely come. It will not tarry. "Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.
King James Version (KJV)
12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another
