“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13
Faith is trust and total reliance on the Word of God. Faith comes as a result of hearing the Word of God. Once we hear the Word, we can trust that what God has said will come to past. Our faith is not in things or people, but our faith is in God and what His Word has to say about our situation. Others may have an opinion or suggestion regarding our condition, but we must trust what God has said in His Word concerning us.
While it is true that we will experience some difficult periods in this life, God is still the governor. It is He who knows all there is to know about us. It is He who orders our steps, and we must trust that He knows the way we take. Life has its trials and its share of disappointments, but God the creator has placed in each of us what we will need to win the fight.
It is in the darkest moment that the opportunity for our faith to be strengthened is displayed. Maintaining a level of faith when life is chaotic can be difficult. It is in our weakness that He is strong. Our faith can remain firm because our faith is in a never changing God. We can lean on God when we are shaky because He is always solid.
If there were no storms in our lives, how would we ever experience the deliverance of an almighty God? Trust the God you serve that He will bring you through. You can always stand strong because He is holding you.
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23
