TODAY'S MANNA for Wednesday Feb 1, 2012
God tells us in His Word that the just shall live by faith in Him, but who are the just?
 
Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
--Hebrews 10:38 King James Version
 
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
God tells us in His Word that the just shall live by faith in Him, but who are the just?
According to the Greek word translated here as 'just', dikaios, dik'-ah-yos; from G1349; it means: equitable (in character or act); by implication: innocent, holy --just, meet, right (-eous)], so it appears to me that the just are those whom Jesus has cleansed with His Blood. Those who believe that Jesus died for THEM on the Cross that they might become the righteousness of God in Him. Those who have made Jesus the Lord of their lives!
That means Jesus leads and guides their everyday lives, not just their Sunday Life!
Do you believe it? If you do, then are you living like you believe it? Remember the opposite of faith is fear.
If we draw back from faith, God has no pleasure in us because (Heb 10:39) when we draw back we draw into perdition [ruin or loss (phys., spiritual or eternal):--damnable (-nation), destruction, we die, perish, pernicious ways, or waste away.] So how do the 'just' live by faith? The 'just' (the Righteous) shall live by faith by calling those things that be not as though they were...just as God does. By believing what God says in His Word even when the natural circumstances are saying something else. Romans 4:17 states "...even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were." "¯FAITH¯ If God uses faith and we are to be imitators of Him, then why aren't we using faith?
 
MY PRAYER...
Lord God Almighty, forgive my acts of little faith and foolishness. By Your Holy Spirit, help me to cause my faith to grow. Help me to know in my spirit that I am the just, I am the righteousness of You through Jesus. Help me to have the boldness to step out of the boat with You and put my trust in all Your ways and Your Word. Give me courage to fight the good fight of faith and win the race. Through Your Holy Son, and My Lord, Jesus, I pray.
Amen
