The Golden Key of Faith

Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians was “that Christ my dwell in your hearts by faith” (Ephesians 3:17). The door through which Jesus enters the human heart-and thereby makes you His temple-swings upon the hinges of grace, and faith is the key that unlocks that door.

This “golden key of faith” not only opens the door of the heart to Jesus, but it also opens the door of heaven’s riches to the believer. And this faith in not only our house key, but it is also the key to God’s storehouse. Imagine this, when you turn that key, and you step over the thresh-hold of God’s grace you will encounter such wonderful things that your mind will never fathom, nor understand the riches he has to offer you.

All of God’s blessings come to us through faith. Jesus said, “According to your faith be it unto you” (Matthew 9:29). Therefore, the benchmark of blessing is not according to our feelings, friends, fame, or fortune, but according to our faith. Yes, our faith is the key, it is the measuring stick that God see’s everywhere we go.

The measure of accomplishment in the Christian life is always faith. Conversely, most of  the problems in the Christian life are caused by our lack of faith. Let’s look at a few of the things that cause us problems.

Did you know that worry is the opposite of faith and an insult to God? Worrying is like saying “God, I don’t think You can handle this one.” Matthew 6:34 says do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow has it’s own worries. In other words, take comfort in what God has to offer you because it is divine, nothing can compare to it, put your trust in God with out doubting and you will see great things happen in your life.

Loneliness is the result of not believing in God’s presence. In times of loneliness we need to remember that faith makes God’s presence very real to us even when no one else is near. Unbelief, however, leaves us isolated even in a crowd. The ghost of guilt haunts many people because they lack confidence in the full forgiveness of God’s grace. Faith is our acceptance of God’s acceptance of us. Disobedience results from lack of faith in what God has said.

It is human nature to touch the paint when the sign says, “Wet Paint.” We are not quite sure it’s wet, so we check for ourselves. If we truly believe the “wet paint” signs in God’s Word, we will not so easily transgress, sin. When you are confronted with temptation, our God will provide a way out.

Merry Christmas to you all and God bless you exceedingly and abundantly!

About spiritministries

I am a man who has learned not to rely on my own understanding the hard way. God revealed himself to me two and a half years before I got out of prison. It's the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. There is truly only one way and that is to have a relationship with God. Since my release S.P.I.R.I.T Ministries has came to fruition. We meet every Wednesday night at 7p.m. God asked me to write a book, in 18 months I finished Rock Bottom; Inspired by God, He provided me with a web blog, thank you Andrew, as you can see, I am a motivational-inspirational speaker, and singer. We now have a band known as The Un-Scene, you can find the link on my web site and check it out on face book. I am just a man who was given true life while in prison, freedom, salvation, and unspeakable joy by the grace of God. We go many places to speak and sing for the glory of God. I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything a part from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. If you would like to hear us just contact me and God willing we will remain obedient. God bless you all.
