Faith

TODAY’S VERSE

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
One of the hardest parts of following Christ is exercising our faith. It was hard for the disciples and they lived with Jesus! He had just finished feeding the 5,000 people and told the disciples to take the boat across the lake. There was a big storm and they were afraid. When Jesus came walking on the water toward them at 3:00 in the morning they were terrified. St. Mark writes, “Then Jesus climbed into the boat, and the wind stopped. They were totally amazed, for they still didn’t understand the significance of the miracle of the loaves. Their hearts were too hard to take it in.” According to the author of Hebrews, “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” This is more than optimism. Faith is the confident belief in the trustworthiness of our Lord. We have can have optimism because of our faith. But we exercise faith in God, even when things don’t seem optimistic. Today put your faith in the loving trustworthiness of our Lord.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, forgive me for my lack of faith. Help me to see through Your eyes and put my faith and confidence in Your trustworthiness.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
