Believing in God through faith, particularly in trying times, is fundamental to our Christian journey. Hebrews 11:1 (TLB) beautifully encapsulates this: "What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it ahead."
To keep this faith alive, we must immerse ourselves in the Bible to find the truth of His character and promises. Just as plants need water to grow, our faith requires the nourishment of God's Word to flourish.
Fellow Christians can uplift us, share wisdom, and pray with us, helping to bolster our faith. These relationships become even more crucial in challenging times, reminding us that we are not alone in our journey. By faith, we continually seek God, stay grounded in His Word, and foster Christian fellowship, even amidst life's storms.
The persistence of believing will be such a blessing for those you touch.
Lord, help me to keep believing in spite of any circumstance I face. Amen.
What are you believing for and how can you double down your efforts to see those things happen?
