Today in our Monday Manna circle I want to take your faith to another level.  The word of God says Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)  Faith is something that is not visible.  You can't see faith, you just know it will happen.  The word of God also lets us know that the Lord gives each of us a measure of faith. (Romans 12:3) This tells us that each of us have faith no matter what level it is.  Some of us have mustard seed faith and some have the gift of faith.  No matter where your faith is on today, it always has room to grow.  I can remember a time in my life when I was unemployed.  I was praying for a job and I told the Lord whatever agency that picks me up, that is the agency that I will go with. I was filling out at least 25 applications a day.   When I got the call that I had a job, the job was 6 hours from where I was living at the time.  I told God, "If you give me the position, you will make every provision for me when I get there."  I came to my new city with $75.00.  I didn't know where I was going to stay,  I didn't know the area.  I didn't have any family or friends there.  I drove down a day before I had to start work and I went to a hotel to stay the night.  The hotel was $45.00 for the night. I was left with $30.00 for the next 2 weeks until I got my first paycheck.   I stayed the night and I said, "Lord, it's me and you."  I went to work the next day.  I did not know where I was going to stay for the rest of the week.  I made some calls to the VA hospital and they gave me a list of places and charities to call.  I called this catholic charity and they said they would pay for one week for me to rent a room.  I said thank you Jesus.  Every day I was there I trusted God for my next provision.  The first weekend  I was there, I went to see a place.  The lady said I will work with you.  You can move in next week. When I moved to my new town I had a car that was 17 yrs old.  The car broke down in the middle of the road after the first -6 degree weather.  The next day the Lord blessed me with a new car.  Everything that I needed was there because That was my SET place.  As believers we have to have faith.  Without it, it is impossible to please God.  I admonish you on today, if you lack faith, ask the Father to activate it for you.  Faith is like anything else.  You have to use it for it to work.  Work your faith on this week and watch the Lord Exceed your expectations. 

In His Service and Yours,
