faith….?

So here I was at 4:00 this morning having this conversation with the Lord about  faith  … “what is it with us Lord… we even take  faith  and somehow manage to make it all about us… it becomes  MY faith… if  I Philip  have faith and  I believe… I am somehow right back on the top of everything… Philip is the man…  if I can have faith then I can move mountains,,, achieve anything for God.

Thank you Lord for reminding me of this scripture… it bought everything back into perspective….  “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by  the faith of the Son of God,  who loved me, and gave himself for me.”    It is  His faith  that I live by… not my faith.

Brought me back to that  equation  I loved and wrote about several months back…

Jesus  +  nothing   =   everything  …….     I liked the math!

The only thing we need to do is “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness… then everything we need gets added to us”….  that does not mean He adds to us “the health, wealth, happiness, prosperity, success thingy”…  it means  philip gets what philip needs… if you have been reading along with the old fella this past year, you may have noticed that there have been a string of failures, health issues and survival things as I have walked with Him, seeking first His Kingdom and His Righteousness…

It is not about those things…  it is about Him… it is  about His Faith…  not Philip’s faith…
