An Example Of Faith

Through Him, we can move mountains.

An Example Of Faith
Huffington Post

When you become a Christian, you learn to live by faith. We have faith that there is a God in heaven that created us perfectly in His image. We have faith because we know that God sent His only son to the earth to die on the cross so that we are forgiven and have an eternal life in Heaven. Faith is all of this and so much more. There is more than the faith in God.

On New Year's weekend, I want with the youth group to a youth conference in Pigeon Forge. This was my first trip as a youth leader. We arrived on New Year's Eve. Immediately, something went wrong. I began to not feel well. My sinuses decided to start acting up very severely. It was to the point where it completely hindered me. In addition, I began to get some back pain. There was absolutely non comfortable position. When this happened, I let how I felt bother me. I felt very discouraged that I felt so bad on a trip that was supposed to change my life.

I realized that the enemy was trying to distract me because I was following God's will. I did not need to let some bad feeling distract me from the real reason I was in Pigeon Forge with the youth group. Ultimately, I had faith in the Lord, and I was healed of these sick feelings. I decided to have faith in the Lord and trust in His promises. I had a purpose for being at the conference with the youth, and the enemy was not going to prevent anything less than His perfect will happen that weekend.

I am so thankful that I decided to get rid of the enemy's attacks. I was able to watch those sweet teenagers get their lives changed by the Lord. They all grew closer to the Lord, and some of my kids gained their prayer language! As my faith grew, I saw that the faith grew in these teenagers as well. I saw kids get healed and also begin a relationship with the Lord. If I had let the enemy get into my mind, then I would not have noticed the teenagers and would not have poured into their lives.

No matter the situation, remember to have faith in the Lord. He has a perfect plan for us, and we cannot let the enemy deceive us in thinking that God is anything less an magnificent. With God, we can do anything. We can move mountains. He has a perfect plan for our lives. Do not let the enemy hinder you from following His perfect path.

"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Galatians 2:20
