Kirk Cameron’s Campfire Revival Approaches Day 100: ‘Ask Him to Give You Faith’
By Movieguide® Staff
Millions of people have tuned in to Kirk Cameron’s 100-day spiritual campaign “American Campfire Revival” where the former GROWING PAINS star is inviting people to seek truth, pray and worship.
With only 21 days left, Cameron recently encouraged viewers to put their faith in God and His word for true transformation.
“We can go to the Bible and find out what the Bible says about faith. It’s not something that you or I can muster up. It’s not a simple intellectual believing… it’s a gift given by God and it’s a kind of faith of believing and trusting,” Cameron said. “It’s the kind of faith that Abraham had. God told him that even though he was old, he would have many many children. Abraham believed God and that transformed his life and set the world on a whole new course.”
Cameron also noted that true faith offered hope and courage for the believer and used the example of Moses in the Old Testament.
“True faith is a believing, trusting faith. Trusting in the promises of God against all odds, even when it appears circumstantially that something is impossible. The Bible says true faith is also an obedient faith,” Cameron said. “Think of Moses. He had true faith when God told him to go up on that mountain and to meet God there. That was a scary thing – to meet with the Holy God who is a consuming fire.”
He continued: “Nobody was allowed to touch that mountain and yet God told Moses to meet him and he received those commandments, the Ten Commandments, and bring them down to the people and command the people to keep them. And Moses obeyed God in so many ways and trusted God’s promises.”
Although humility is seen as a weakness by many in today’s culture and hostile political climate, Cameron assured people that a relationship with God produces true humility.
“True faith is also a humble faith. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. The Bible says we are saved by faith, not by works… it’s the gift of God so that nobody can boast,” Cameron said.
Cameron continued: “Faith is having confidence in the promises of God, not walking by sight but by trusting in the word of God. Faith is what keeps us holding on, and that’s what I’m praying our country gets back to. Genuine faith is only something that God can give us. How do you get it? Ask God for it. Ask God to open your eyes and help you see your need for His power to change you.
“Ask Him to give you the faith that will believe His promises and obey His commands even when it seems like there’s no hope and you’re working against all odds. He gives grace to the humble and He pulls down the proud.”
