Jesus the Author and Finisher of our Faith
by Robert Rajamani
…fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, — Hebrews 12:2
Faith pleases God (Hebrews 11:6). You cannot receive anything from the Kingdom of God without Faith. Faith is the key that unlocks the doors of the Kingdom in the spiritual realm and manifest it in the physical realm in your life.
If faith is so important what would you do when you feel that you lack Faith to receive from God and manifest in your life. Feeding on the Word of God produces Faith, listening to the voice of the Spirit produces faith. Still if you feel that your faith is not sufficient to handle the situation you are in, don’t worry, you can rely on the Faith of Jesus to complete your faith.
Once when Jesus was with His disciples in the boat out in the sea, a severe windstorm arose which appeared life-threatening, when the disciples woke Him up in panic, He asked them “why are you so fearful, How is it that you have no Faith?” Jesus expected them to be not afraid when a life-threatening storm came against them. But when He saw that they did not have that Faith, He used His Faith to calm the storm. (Mark 4:35-41)
Jesus will never leave you helpless in your situation just because of your lack of Faith. He is with you in your situation, it might be a life-threatening sickness, or something else, do not fear, just rely on Him and depend on His Faith to work for you. When you lack Faith He is with you to use His Faith and rescue you from the storm, He is your good Father. He will get you out of the situation in victory. He is in charge. Just Trust Him. He will do it.
In another instance, when the father of the boy who had epileptic came to Jesus’s disciples for healing but they could not heal because of their unbelief. When the disciples lacked faith, Jesus used His Faith and rebuked the demon and healed the child. (Matthew 17: 14-21)
When Peter wanted to walk on the water and he did walk for a while, but then as he was going under because of doubt and fear, Jesus stretched out His hand and helped Him. (Matthew 14:29-33) He is always with you to complete and perfect your Faith. He will give you victory over the situation, He is the perfecter of our Faith. Rely on Him.
So live life with the confidence that no matter what situation you face, you are always an overcomer. Your Faith in Him perfected by His Faith will always lead you in triumph. (2 Corinthians 2:14)
