Stretch Your Faith: Rubber Band Faith in Action
Ever had faith that stretched you beyond your comfort zone? Have you ever felt like the only way to get closer to God is to take a leap of faith? Well, the Bible has some wise advice on this matter. In Hebrews 11:6 it says “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him”. This verse speaks about having rubber band faith—faith that stretches us out of our comfort zone and allows us to experience true miracles. Let’s explore how we can put rubber band faith into action!
What Is Rubber Band Faith?
Rubber band faith is when our trust in God expands beyond what we can imagine or comprehend. It’s when we take steps towards Him even though we don’t know what lies ahead. It’s about believing in the Lord even when things don’t make sense, and accepting His plans as superior to ours.
The Power of Stretching Our Faith
The power of stretching our faith lies in its ability to move us out of our comfort zones and into a place where miracles can happen. When we stretch ourselves out of our old beliefs, habits, and routines and embrace a new way of living—we open ourselves up for something greater than ourselves. We discover new opportunities and ideas, which leads us to pursue other paths that may have been unavailable before. Stretching our faith also gives us courage; courage not only to attempt the impossible but also to keep pushing forward even when things get difficult. The Bible encourages us by saying “Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid nor dismayed…for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9).
Being Open To Change
Change can often be difficult; however, growth comes from being open and willing to accept it. When we open ourselves up for change and stretch our faith in God, we find strength in His promises and grace in His love. We realize that through trials come blessings if only we would choose to trust Him above all else (Proverbs 3:5-6). This allows us to experience life differently—to see each obstacle as an opportunity instead of an inconvenience or burden—and ultimately lead us closer towards Him.
Rubber band faith helps us expand our horizons by taking action despite fear or doubt; allowing opportunities for greatness within reach if only we would trust His plans over ours (Isaiah 55:8). So let’s stretch our faith today – be bold enough to step out from behind the veil of our comfort zone – so that through God’s infinite grace and mercy, He can surprise you with joyous new beginnings!
