“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. And, without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” Hebrews 11:1&6
Faith grows when we humble our hearts and allow Jesus to lead us to the Father. In the calming presence of peace, we learn how it feels to welcome His strength. God provides opportunities for HOPE to grow and reminds us to faithfully BELIEVE.
Jesus helps us discover the power of God’s greatness. When distractions are silenced by our need to love Him more, He opens our hearts to receive. He prepares us for what’s to come and shows how to faithfully follow. When we need to be reminded to trust, He helps us surrender our fear and feel the peace of His presence.
Nothing will happen that God cannot handle. He will lead us in the timing of His will. While we wait, we will find strength from the prayers of our praise. There will never be a day without Him. We must BELIEVE He is working for the good and never be afraid to trust Him completely.
God will manage our days. As faith grows, we will learn to trust even when we cannot recognize the purpose of His plan. He will show us how to seek Him with all of our hearts and learn how it feels to be patient. God will reveal His will when the timing is right. And we will find courage when it’s needed. We will be always be rewarded if we remain faithful and remember who’s in charge of ALL things. God knows what He’s doing! We must put our HOPE in Him.
Dear God, Thank you for mercy and grace. Thank you for loving us through every day of our lives. Forgive us when we forget who’s in charge of all things. Teach us to trust in the power of Your plan. And allow us to be gratefully guided by love. Lead us where HOPE is found and give us peace to remember who plans our days. We will remain faithful to believe You are working for the good. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for helping us choose to be faithful, as we continue to gratefully TRUST. Amen
