Howdy! This article will give everyone an update on my life and how Jesus is working in me and through me. By reading this I hope that you will be challenged to grow in faith but be encouraged at the same time.
This past May I was faced with a decision, one that was very hard to make. I was serving at a church in Alaska (and having a blast) but my contract was coming to an end. I had been praying since December about what Jesus wanted me to do next. Many of you know Allison and how much I deeply care and love her. After Jesus, Allison is my everything.
After much prayer and consideration I decided to move to Kansas to be with Allison and keep pursuing Jesus. I made the move with no job and honestly no plans of when I would get one. I was trusting Jesus to provide for me while claiming the blessing at the same time.
I have found this to be insanelty true! When you claim a blessing from Jesus (with the right heart) it will come to pass. Jesus has favor on us as his followers and if we dare to believe that he can do something he’ll do it. It just takes us praying, believing and claiming what’s ours in the name of Jesus. The scripture backs this up heavely and below is one of my favporite verses about claiming Jesus’ promise.
“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them” (Mark 11:23)
Jesus is saying that if you believe and are crazy enough to have that kind of faith it will happen. I was claiming that Jesus would provide a job for me in Kansas, I spent months praying about this and claiming it at the same time.
Once I moved to Kansas it became clear to me that Jesus was moving and after some interviews a church offered me a position! I was thrilled to see Jesus was still working in my life!
I’m telling you, start believing that Jesus is Lord and that the same power that raised Jesus from the grave lives inside of you! Go through each and everyday claiming that blessing on your life.
When we claim it Jesus provides it
I firmly believe that we will always get what we are willing to be faithful for. You need help paying bills, are you crazy enough to belive that Jesus can help you? If not then he won’t. Do you have a dream to travel and be a missionary in a forign country? If you are crazy enough to believe that Jesus can do it and you claim it then you might find yourself on the opposite side of the world.
Choosing not to believe Jesus when he says “Your faith can move mounstains” is crazy because if Jesus said it, he’ll do it. Bceause our God is the same yesterday today and forever.
The Best Is Yet To Come!
