Sorry it has been quite a while since I have posted anything. Here goes… I wanted to talk about the concept of faith. Faith is something a lot of people think they know what it pertains to but in actuality do not grasp the concept of it and use it so lightly. What is your definition of faith? In Hebrews 11:1 it says, “Now FAITH is the substance of all things hope for, the evidence of things not seen.” 11:3- “Through faith we understand the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” How do we have this faith? Through HIM. 2 Timothy 2:13- “If we believe not, yet HE abideth FAITHFUL; he cannot deny himself. “How amazing is that? The Lord is faithful! I remember not knowing this before but when I discovered it through His word it clicked. How can we really know what faith is if we do not go through things that test our faith? We go through trials and rough patches each and every day, some more than others. But what do we do through that? Do we remain in faith or fall apart? And if we fall apart do we get back up or just stay down? Faith is something powerful and increases through Christ! We need to rely on HIM and his faith! Thinking about it now, there were a lot of times where my own faith was weak. But He is strong and was able to get me through it. Praise the Lord for His continual faithfulness in me. He never gave up on me and it has brought me further each day. Sometimes when we have those “bad” days, it is easy to not have faith or think about it. But that is when we need to rely on Him the most. We are nothing, He is everything.
1 Timothy 6:11-12 “But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.”
