As a follower of Christ, we need to learn to have a Jesus-like faith.

It’s hard sometimes because we often rely on our own understanding instead of believing what God says in His Word.

While our faith is not perfect, Jesus’s unwavering faith is perfect!

It’s a hard process to learn to have a Jesus-like faith because we like instant gratification.

I mean, who likes to wait when you can have what you you’re asking for right NOW?

I have to confess that I still struggle with this daily.

Our human nature teaches us to look towards our own understanding and do things to get rewarded with God’s favor.

However, we cannot do ANYTHING to receive God’s favor! It’s a gift from God and we have to ask the Holy Spirit to renew our mind.

What Does Jesus-Like Faith Look Like?

We have to have faith that Jesus can change us and our circumstances. We need to lean not on our own understanding because Jesus can do much more than we can!

God’s blessing comes when we realize that we can’t do anything without Jesus allowing it in our lives.

We have a mighty creator who performs miracles!

Check out these Bible verses on how powerful a faith in Jesus can be:

Acts 3:16
When Peter healed the lame man in Solomon’s Porch and the people marveled, Peter said:

“And His name, through faith in His name, hath made this man strong, whom you see and know; yea, the faith which is by Him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all”.

Galatians 2:20

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”.

Key Takeaway

So if you’re struggling with your faith today remember one thing; it doesn’t take much.  All you need is just a mustard seed of faith and God will use it to do the unexpected in your life!

So while you are waiting on Him by faith remember this one thing:

God knows every need, every struggle & every desire. He has it all figured out & you’re in the palm of His hand.
