Faith or Stupidity Should I Sail or Not?

Questioning Yourself Going Forth in FAITH or Stupidity this is not about literal sailing unless you're into that of course.

One thing about life it is very uncertain much of the time.  We live and walk by faith.  Of all things the Lord looks upon and is pleased with is our FAITH in Him.  We walk by faith and not by sight.  We move, live and breath by faith.  Without faith it is impossible to please Him.

Sometimes in life we question whether we are walking and living by faith or stupidity....don't we?  We feel we are led all the way up to a thing and then when we are right there question whether it's the Lord or not? 

We ask questions of ourselves,  am I in sin?  is this the Lord?  are you sure I should do this or do that Lord?  What are we suppose to do just sit down, shut up and do nothing?  or go forth in faith.

Today as I live I will go forth in faith and pray to God it pleases the Lord.  Remember the story of Esther?  She was called of God to do unconventional things.  Not only was she called to help deliver the children of Israel from destruction but she was called of God to beautify herself and then spend a night with the King in an unconventional way.  Was there a marriage ceremony?  I don't recall reading that part.  But God had called her into this process.  In the end the Jews were saved from destruction.  God is not asking us to sin, He is asking us to walk in faith.  We have to live by faith outside the box of leaning to our own understanding and "re-li-gion".

Esther obeyed God instead of man.  She went forth in faith, confidence and bravery and she was blessed also because of it.   If you want the full blessings of the Lord, don't do everything inside the box of religion.  God is not in a box and neither are we.  

Today...all glory be to God for what you have planned for our lives Lord as we walk by faith and not by sight nor lean to our own understanding.  Sail on!

As a prayer warrior and faith consultant one of the first things I do with people is just start talking with them.  I allow them to talk.  I ask the questions God leads me to ask to get to the root of the situation so I know how to pray.  I don't like to waste time.  That doesn't mean I rush things.  I go at God's pace in the conversation.  But I do like getting right to the point.  For some people that's just too much, too much information so you have to go slower. 

What do you want?   Jesus asked the same question.  What is it that YOU want?  That doesn't always mean of course what He wants for you, but communicating with God where you are at is important.

He loves our honesty with Him.  And He LOVES FAITH.  He loves the fact that you would even bother asking someone like me for advice.  He honors faith most of all.

I would pray with you and for faith...leaving the results with God and giving Him all the praise and glory.  And I don't pray "if" prayers about things I KNOW HE is sure of for you.  For example, I KNOW that He wants people healed, to provide every need, and for people to be safe.  I don't pray "Lord, if it be thy will please heal so and so of cancer"  NO!  I can't stand that! 

"By His stripes we WERE healed"  By His stripes we ARE healed" his Word says. 

Okay this is all for today!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Please leave your comments as you're led.  God bless YOU!  Love, Wandafay
