Growing in faith

Many times the road up ahead is long, windy and you have no idea what is around the corner, yet faith in who is leading us will keep us on the road, walking straight ahead, trusting that where it leads is where He wants you to end up.

Faith is to have confidence of what you hope for and assurance of the things you can’t see. How you ask? How can I be certain that what is ahead is good, or what is head will not bite me in the back later on.

Faith is not something we can achieve on our own, faith comes through looking at a person called Jesus Christ. Without Jesus there is no faith. The Bible says He is the author and perfecter of our faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God.

We are a family that has said long time ago that wherever He leads us we would go, even without knowing the path ahead, whether it makes a turn, whether there are obstacles in the road or not. If Jesus it the one that is leading us, the One who authors our faith than we will obey without doubting because it gives us the confidence of the things hoped for and the assurance of things not yet seen.

YWAM San Jose is at a crucial turning point where we need to see our faith increase, and we are all challenged to hold on for the ride on the road ahead. But faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. So we hold on to Jesus and walk closely to Him, listening to what the Spirit has to say to us and move forward with confidence that He will show us the details of what this is supposed to look like.

These are exciting and yet challenging times, but so was it for Abraham when he was asked to go “to the land God would show him.” So was it for Noah who build the ark in faith and in Holy fear to the Lord.

That is where we are at, ready to build in obedience to what the Lord told us many years ago, building in the fear of the Lord, cause nothing is for our glory, it is for His and for the expansion of His kingdom.

Thank you for standing with our family and with the ministry that God has entrusted into our hands. Without you as our partners we would not be able move forward as fast as we are. We need you. May this weekend be blessed and filled with revelation from our Lord.
