But God- Jesus is Our Faith

But God Image_Color_Cross
Greetings,

One question that we received in response to the last article was:

"When I find myself in those 'too much to bear' circumstances, I ask God for more faith. It seems like sometimes I get it, and sometimes I don't... Am I missing something?"

To answer that question I must admit first that I have prayed that prayer many times....with the same results. It is, however, a prayer that misses the truth. The truth is that faith is not something that we ever lack. Before I continue, let me clarify- there are times when we don't FEEL like we have faith. Also, faith is NOT something we receive in increments. With all that in mind, what exactly am I saying about us and our need for faith?

Does Jesus live IN you? He IS our faith. He trusts our Father perfectly at all times. Jesus doesn't come and go from His dwelling place inside us. The reality then is that we always have all the faith we need because Jesus is our faith. This changes our whole paradigm about faith. We move from trying to have faith IN God to having the faith OF God! Let's begin to thank Him that He is our faith and He never lacks faith. Wow!

Blessings,

Thomas

If you want to know what someone really thinks, just listen to what they say after the word ‘but’ …so it is here with…”but God!”“

Note: “but God” is a weekly ministry of Robinson Outdoors Products written for us by pastor and spiritual counselor, Thomas Paige. “But God” is posted each week on the ScentBlocker website and can be found there along with the archives of messages of past years and months from Thomas. “But God” is also posted each week on ScentBlocker Facebook page and on Twitter.

You may ask, “why would Robinson, an outdoor products company with brands ScentBlocker and Tree Spider, making products for hunters, spend its time on something like “but God”?” Great question, as we here at Robinson consider our work place our mission field, our products bearing the John 3:16 inscription our outreach. In every new ScentBlocker jacket there is a laminated waterproof pocket insert that contains the salvation message printed in two languages. And, we ask the Lord to provide more opportunities for us to be a light unto a dark world.

What responses do we receive from our customers? Each week thousands and thousands of people read the “but God” message online. We receive dozens and dozens of appreciative emails, rejoicing that a company has the courage to stand up for what it believes despite perhaps it not being the most popular thing to do these days. God has blessed our lives and our business!

I hope you will enjoy this weeks’ “…but God” as Thomas continues the series, unto the Lord!
