God speaks to us when we read and study the Bible. Faith is believing, trusting and obeying God’s word as truth. Friends faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
I’m thankful my Mama shared her Faith in Christ Jesus to me as a young girl.
However, I didn’t accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior until I was much older.
God had a plan for my life it just took me a while to catch up.
However, God has proven to be faithful to me again and again and I’m so thankful for that.
I want to be honest with you.
It is easy to have faith when all is going to well in your life.
It’s in the difficult seasons when your faith is being stretched to its limits is when you show what your faith is made of.
Do I always pass the test? Unfortunately, I do not.
I am far from perfect but I’m thankful for God’s grace even when I do not deserve it.
Do you struggle with faith at times too?
Trust me, friend, I know how hard it can be to cling to faith sometimes when you do not see your circumstances changing.
I love those two words so much.
In our difficult seasons, we are forced to LOOK UP and lean not on our own understanding…AMEN!
Challenging times prove to us our strength is found in God and him alone.
It’s so important to read the truth that’s found in God’s word.
God is ALWAYS faithful to us even when we are not faithful towards him.
I have Scriptures below when you need the reminder to LOOK UP.
