Don’t Shipwreck Your Faith

1 Timothy 1:19

Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.

There is a vital truth revealed in this verse that is often overlooked when it comes to our walk of faith. Those who walk by faith and not by sight as we are told to do so in scripture, have a complete trust in God and therefore trust that what God says is truth, and that settles every issue in life. When you have that kind of trust you will also speak in line with His Word and act in line with the Word as well. But there is something that can undermine our faith.

When a ship becomes shipwrecked in the days of the Bible it was usually because the ship had run aground on a sand bar or was sunk because it ran into rocks under the surface. In either case that ship is going nowhere. This is what can happen to a believers faith if they do not pay attention to their conscience. The conscience is the voice of our spirit man within (Romans 9:1). If we reject the voice of our spirit we to can become shipwrecked in our faith going nowhere.

The conscience or voice of our spirit is where we learn to follow the guidance of our spirit man, which when born again will lead us in line with the Word of God. When we reject our conscience we are not walking in line with the Word and therefore out of faith, for faith without corresponding action is dead. Our conscience will reveal when we have missed it with God and if we listen and repent we maintain our confidence toward God and our faith remains active. So listen closely to your conscience if you don’t want to become shipwrecked, causing your faith to go nowhere.

Do Not Worry

Luke 12:22-23

22 Then He said to His disciples, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on.

23 Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.

The most devastating sin is worry. When Jesus said, “Do not worry” that means to worry is a sin. That which is not of faith is sin and when we worry we are not walking by faith, we are walking by sight. There are three key things you can do to overcome worry. One: Get your focus on the kingdom of God and off of the world. You will find reading further in Luke 12 worry is a result of not seeking the kingdom of God, but instead seeking the things of this world. Jesus said when you become focused on God’s kingdom, all the things you have need of will be added unto you.

Two: Cast all your care upon God. We are told to cast all our cares once and for all upon Him (1 Peter 5:7). God did not create us to be burdened with the cares of life and that is why He said to cast them upon Him. When you allow the cares of life to rule your thoughts, you become a pack mule for the devil. When you release your cares to God, you must have scripture to stand on because thoughts will come to try and get you to worry. You cast those thoughts down by declaring what God’s Word says.

Three: Choose to meditate on God’s Word, the good report. Philippians 4:8 tells us to meditate on God’s good report found in His Word, instead of dwelling on all that is bad in life and in the world. Realize this, living a life of worry Jesus said will not add anything to your life, and in fact doctors will tell you it is the most detrimental thing to your health. Every believer in Christ can live a worry free life for if it was not so, Jesus would not have told us not to worry.

Jesus Our Healer

Matthew 8:17

This fulfilled the word of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah, who said, “He took our sicknesses and removed our diseases.”

Jesus at Calvary carried away sickness and disease for us all. The prophecy of Isaiah 53:4 has been fulfilled. All we have to do is receive by faith in our hearts what He has already done for us. Healing comes from the Spirit of God and it manifests in the physical body. Healing is a part of the salvation package purchased for us, for by the stripes He bore in His body we are healed.

These truths in scripture reveal clearly that it is God’s will to heal us. Jesus Himself was anointed by God and went about doing good, and healing all who were oppressed of the devil. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Many often question if it is God’s will to heal them, but Jesus proved it is His will for us to be healed, for no one who came to Jesus in faith for healing was ever turned away.

Jesus healed everyone who came to Him in faith and so it is today for those who come to Him in faith, believing they receive their healing when they pray for He has not changed. Take the scriptures that reveal healing in the Bible and meditate on them until they become real to you. When they do you can release your faith to receive what is a promise of God for you.

He Has Overcome The World

John 16:33

I’ve told you this so that my peace will be with you. In the world you’ll have trouble. But cheer up! I have overcome the world.”

Troubles or storms of life come to all. Jesus did not tell us this so that we would be troubled by them. He has already overcome the world’s troubles you will face. Jesus taught us that if you come to Him and hear what He says but do not do what He says, you will be like a man who built a house on sand. Storms would come and when they do the house would fall.

But if you come to Him and you hear and do what He has said, you will be like a man who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock. When the storms come the house would not only stand, it would not be shaken. In this fallen world you will face trouble or storms of life. But the person who has come to Jesus and will listen to what He has to say and is a doer of the Word, and not just a hearer only, they have a strong foundation upon which they will stand.

Those who do so are those who walk by faith and not by sight. When the storms come they not only won’t go down, Jesus said they would not be shaken by the storm. It is not up to God if we overcome for He has already provided victory for us, it is up to us. Spend time with the Lord and listen to what He has said in His Word, and be a doer of the Word. If you do you will walk in perfect peace, and you will not be defeated.
