Hard To Have Faith?

Greetings My Friends
There are many obstacles to faith that we don't even realize. Praise the Lord, there are answers. Let's take a look at a few things, that usually slip by unnoticed.
It is common for a lot of people to feel that they are really good, because they believe they are keeping all of the commandments. What many of them don't realize, is that if they feel like that, the sin of pride is close behind. The other misconception that many people have, is that you can earn faith or salvation. It is written Ephesians 2:8 "for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God."
Another thing that hinders faith, is we don't realize our nature. We must recognize our faults and admit them. Most people have to hit bottom. Each one of us has our own bottom. In this process, most people realize how sinful they are on their own. God is not doing it to them. When you finally get the real bottom, you really start to realize how helpless you are, and in desperation, turn to God. He is the only answer.
When your life is totally surrendered, and you ask Him into your life, you start to find peace with repentance. You start experiencing love, not condemnation. Now God can go to work in your life, and you receive what the Bible calls, a measure of faith.
Faith is misunderstood by many of us. We struggle with faith because we subconsciously try to have faith on our own, because we were always told that we have to have mountain moving faith.
Faith is a lot easier than you may think. God gave each of us the same measure of faith. We have the Jesus measure of faith. Jesus on His own couldn't work miracles until He was baptized with the Holy Spirit. At that point He knew that the Holy Spirit would do what He(Jesus) said.
While my friends, if you are baptized in the Holy Spirit, and use Jesus name as you were authorized to do by Jesus himself, you have the same power. It works the same way for us today as it did for Jesus. I guess it all boils down to trust in Jesus name, and Holy Spirit power, to do the impossible. Stretch that trust, or as you may call it faith. Praise the Lord. It really is that easy.
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation

Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior. Thank you Lord. Amen.
