About Let Series
LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
Hebrews 12:2 AMPC (emphasis mine)
Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection].
Faith is a Person. Faith is from a Person.
Faith is not an ‘it’ – a thing to pump up, a truth we can find and possess. Faith is not a spiritual gift we learn to master. Faith is a Person, and faith is a personal transaction with the One who has all faith…Jesus.
We look to the One who is Faith, creates faith, begins our faith. As simple as looking, faith is accessible under any circumstance because it is not a matter of effort or knowledge or strength.
How wonderful! Anyone can look – a child can look, a prisoner can look. A blind person can look. It is a gaze of the mind and a focus of the heart. No one is shut out of getting faith.
I need. I look. He gives.
