Chapter 11 of Hebrews tells us about people who by faith followed God.
Following God is not easy. We can't see him. He's not in front of us telling us what to do. How do we know we are following him?
Some one once told me that it's in my knower that I know I am following him. He pointed to his gut.
I get a warm peiceful feeling when I know I've done good by God. Other times I get very agitated and I know God wants me to stop doing what I am I doing even to stop going to a natural path and a bible study.
I rarely get these strong feelings. How do I know that I am following God the rest of the time? I don't know 100% for sure. I follow the same way the people in Hebrews 11 did, by faith.
By faith I trusted God to diagnose the bipolar I had, then by faith I trusted him for 8 years that he would heal me.
By faith we followed God from Sudbury to Bracebridge.
By faith I put my short leg out for prayer and God grew it.
By faith while at a healing retreat when the leader asked if someone had dilexial I went forward and by faith he prayed and I was healed.
By faith I took a folk art painting course which began my adventure into the art world.
By faith I bought a box of clay, glazes and a kiln which began my adventure into pottery.
By faith I took drum lessons and found I have rythim.
I could keep listing the things I've done by faith, but you get the idea.
By faith we follow God or by faith we follow the world or ourselves.
My life is a joyful one instead of a depressed one because I choose to follow God by faith.
