The Mightiest Oak In the Forest!

Little nut who held its groun

The Mightiest Oak In the Forest was Once a Little Nut that Just Held Its Ground! I know that this quote is a little simple and even a little funny, however, I believe the quote also holds a deeper profound meaning.  Are you a little nut?

When the circumstances of life come to uproot your peace or attempt to destroy you or your family, do you know how to hold your ground? Many times until the circumstances come into our lives, we do not know how strong we are.  However, I view faith like a muscle.  The more you use your faith muscle the stronger faith you have, but much like the muscles in your body, you can’t just go to the gym one time and have rippling muscles, right? No, you must continue to work those muscles to cause them to be built up and strong.  So, must you give your faith muscles regular workouts.

 There are three things that I have found a must that has helped me to build my faith muscles and stand my ground like this little nut.  I numbered them 1-3, however, I feel that all three are equally important and necessary to build my faith and I use all three of them together.

  1. God’s Word:  God’s Word is the final authority.  Because His Word is unshakable.
    Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 

    When I deposit the Word of God into my spirit, His Word is the nutrition that my faith muscle needs to grow. When I keep putting in the Word and using it by faith it causes me to be stedfast and unmovable.  Yes, I am like that little nut who will hold her ground, especially when it comes to my family and friends.

  2.  Prayer:   Prayer is key to trusting God and believing His Word.  Prayer is not just giving God our list and expecting Him to fulfill our every wish.  No, prayer is communication between The True and Living God and ourselves where we build a relationship.  Because I have His Word and I am in Relationship with  Him, I know He can be trusted.  All of His Promises are Yes and Amen.  So by knowing He is trustworthy, and His Word doesn’t change, and He doesn’t change,  It causes me to be strong in faith and again stedfast and unmovable.  In prayer, God can direct me and show me what to do, how to do it, or if I need to do anything at all.  Because of Him, I can stand my ground.
  3. Worship:  I have found worship to be the vehicle between Prayer and God’s Word but also between Heaven and Earth.  Worship helps me to get my eyes off of everything and to put them on God who is the one who perfects all that concerns me. He is the One who is all knowing.  I worship Him for who He is, not just for what He gives.  I worship Him as the Creator of the Universe, the One who has created me and given me a purpose and a plan.  He is the One who holds all my days and knows every minute detail about me.  I also worship Him in Adoration. He is the One whom my soul loves and I search for Him, in a deep and personal way to love Him more.  He is my personal Heavenly Father who loves me with an everlasting love.

    Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. 17   How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 18  If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

    Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

My desire for writing my blogs is to always encourage.  If you are facing circumstances in your life which may seem too strong for you, I hope that you will begin seeing yourself and your faith as powerful and strong in God.  Our God is never surprised by what we are going through and will cause us to triumph if we stand our ground in faith trusting Him to help us.  Remember, The Mightiest Oak In the Forest was Once a Little Nut that Just Held Its Ground!
