    Bible Study: Why Faith Moves God and Pleases Him

    There is always a constant tug-of-war of faith and doubt in the believer’s life. We must stay anchored in the truth (the Word), which produces hope and faith and keeps us planted in God’s presence. I want to address the spiritual warfare going on regarding faith, and how we must stand firm holding up the shield of faith (Ephesians 6:16), so we can withstand any fiery darts of doubt or fear.

     

    In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Ephesians 6:16)

     

    The Bible clearly says that it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God without faith, which is the confidence of things hoped for the things unseen (Hebrews 11). The Lord says that a double-minded person who doubts is like the waves of the sea blown and tossed by the wind. We don’t want to be insecure, shaken or unstable; we want to be anchored in Jesus, the firm foundation.

     

    Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)

    And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)

    Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. (Matthew 17:20)

     

    We must fight for our faith by reading the Word. The Bible says, “Faith cometh by hearing and hearing the WORD” (Romans 10:17). Whatever we feed grows, so if we feed our doubts and fears with false thinking, we will sink like Peter when He was walking on the water to Jesus and started sinking when he doubted. When we fix our eyes on Jesus, we will experience miracles because we aren’t distracted (Matthew 14:22-23).

     

    …the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. (Isaiah 61:3)

     

    Keep your heart and mind filled with truth and the Word (the Bread of life) and you will walk on water in faith and hope! Stand on the rock, Christ, the firm foundation, and when storms and trials come, you will have the victory. Even if you cannot see the result or outcome immediately, you will have peace because you know God is with you and that it was finished on the cross 2,000 years ago. The battle has been won—just believe, PI Girls.

     

     

    Why We Must Hold Fast to Our Faith

    1. The enemy wants to steal our joy and faith. (John 10)

    2. A double-minded man is unstable in all ways. (James 1:6-8)

    3. Faith moves mountains. (Matthew 17:20)

    4. Faith moves God. (Hebrews 11:6)

    5. Faith produces hope, whereas fear creates despair. (Romans 5:1-5)
