Do you believe that God has faith? Now some people will answer, "No, because since He's God, He doesn't need faith." Personally, I believe with all my heart that God is a faith Being, that He lives by faith. God operates by faith because He calls things not as they are, but as He envisions them to be. Eph 5:27 tells us what God sees when He looks at His Church, the Body of Christ. He sees a glorious Church, one without spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing, one that is holy and without blemish. And the obvious reason why He sees us that way is because He looks at us from a spiritual perspective. He sees us not as we are in our natural selves, but as we appear through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. And that is faith!
We in the Church have experienced a great deal of shame and reproach lately. The Church has lost more credibility in the past few years than at any other period in our lifetime. Yet God keeps the faith. He hasn't changed the scripture that He has a glorious Church, one without spot or wrinkle or blemish of any kind. I believe this is why it is impossible for God to be pleased with those who do not live by faith. He created us in His image and likeness, and so we're expected to live like Him.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; WE ARE AN EXTENSION OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN ON EARTH. IF GOD OPERATES BY FAITH IN HIMSELF, THEN WE MUST OPERATE BY FAITH IN HIM. THE SITUATION OF THINGS DOESN'T CHANGE HIS BELIEVE; IF THEY DO, HE WOULD HAVE RE-WRITTEN THE BIBLE. Have a most fruitful day! In Jesus precious name!
