Todays Spiritual WOD: Is your Trust greater than your Fear?Â
What is Faith??Â
Things I have heard about Faith: Hope in the things unseen; Believing without seeing, Complete trust in someone or something without having proof. Faith is an assured belief in the goodness of God. Faith is a free gift given to us by God. FaithÂ is resting on God alone.Â I have heard that living by faith is hard to do. But the Bible tells us that it is impossible to please God without Faith…Faith must be pretty important. The word Faith is used in the Bible 247 times….twice in the Old Testament and 245 in the New Testament….something to think about.
We all go through things in this life. Good things. Not so good things. And sometimes down right terrible things. Often times problems that arise are self inflicted.Â Consequences toÂ poor choices or decisions that we have made. Other times things happen to us that seem to be without reason. They are hard to understand. Impossible to comprehend. We find ourselves asking God: “Why me? Why this? Why now?” or “Why not God? I deserve it. Its not fair. I have worked so hard. I really need this.” When we doubt God we allow all sorts of evil to live inside our hearts. Doubt in God seperates us from God. Faith is believing that no matter what you are going through God has things under control and He knows what is best. If you are a child of God…your faith will be tested. Write it down, believe it, know that it is coming. A test of our faith can strengthen our walk with Him when we seek Him earnestly, trust in Him unwaveringly, and love Him unconditionally.
So let me ask you again…. Is your Trust greater than your Fear?? Why are you living in Fear?? Give it to Him today.
Proverbs 23:29 “Who has woe? Who has sorrow?Â Who has strife? Who has complaints? Who has wounds without reason? Who has bloodshot eyes?”
