Most of us have "projects" we are working on in life, some in the personal area, some in the business area, but we are in the process somewhere to a finished end.
I believe the same thing applies in the area of faith. When we received Jesus Christ as our Savior and our relationship with Him began, He invited us into His faith. Of course, for us, this faith begins as a small seed, but as it grows within us it has great potential. Jesus says it is like a mustard seed, but if we will use it by "saying to the mountain, 'Move from her to there,' it will move and nothing will be impossible to us and whatever we ask in prayer, believing, we will receive." (Matthew 17:20; 21:21-22)
So many times we look at different areas of our lives and wonder, "Why me? Why does this have to happen to me?" Somehow we tend to believe that everyone else has life easy and they have their life all together, but we don't. If only we were like them...
God wants us to realize that every one of us have areas of our life where faith is needed to change things. This is what I call a "faith project." Think about it. He says He wants to pour water on dry ground and if we believe out of our belly shall flow rivers of living water (Isaiah 35; John 7:38). What He needs is someone to be willing to stand there and ask, believe and receive His power into that place.
Whenever I get into a hard place, one of those places that seem impossible, I remember Lazarus. No situation can be more impossible than that. That man was dead and in his grave 4 days and all Jesus would say was, "I am the resurrection and the life, and if you will believe you will see the glory of God." (John 11:25, 40)
Instead of getting down about our problems, we really need to adjust our attitude. Look at each of these situations as an opportunity to exercise your faith. The blessing will be that you will have part in bringing in God's glory, someone else will be benefited, and your faith will be stronger than ever.
