Losing your faith in God or is it the church? We were talking with friends at a lunch yesterday about losing one’s faith
and the Lord suddenly spoke to me:
‘If they lost their faith in Me, they never really had it in the first place’
I sat back astonished before I re-entered the conversation and chewed on this morsel of Wisdom.
‘They need to believe in Me through Me and with Me. When they do that, they never lose their belief’
Experiential faith to belief has no going back unless one chooses to reject the Truth in front of you. True faith is belief.
Or is it ‘church hurt ‘?
‘If being hurt by the church causes you to lose your faith in God, then your faith was in people not in God.'(anon quote)
I challenge all those who have not had a supernatural experience with God. He is Supernatural.Not natural.
If your faith has come just through ‘church’, it will remain as weak as the weakest link in church.
On Earth we are chained by many controls and influences and peoples that will let us down, block us, disenchant us. We need to get delinked from these or we will always be lacking faith.
Hebrews is very clear about this. In this first verse below it implies one will not see the Lord if peace and holiness is not pursued. These are access doors to Him not just man.
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;
