Faith to Believe

We all believe in something to some degree. Think about it for a moment. We believe we will wake up in the morning. We believe that the chair we are sitting in will support us. We believe that the sun will come up every day, even if we don't see it, right? Even if it's cloudy, or rainy, we know the sun is still there, yes?

It's the same thing with believing in God. Just because we can't see Him, doesn't mean He doesn't exist. Just because things are going a bit rough in our lives, doesn't mean He doesn't care. And just because we don't believe in Him, doesn't mean He doesn't believe in us.

Faith is a choice we make. We can either choose to believe that the Word is true or not. We can choose to believe God is working everything for our best, or not. We can choose to have faith, or not.

It really is that simple.

I'm facing something right now that I've been battling for years. Yet, I have faith the problem will eventually be solved, the issue will disappear and I will learn something from it. Sometimes I'm a slow learner, what can I say?

What is it that you are facing today, dear one, that you need faith for? Is it a job situation? A health issue? Perhaps a relationship has gone sour for the umpteenth time? Fret not. God is still faithful. He is still working in our lives. And let me give you a hint - each trial we go through, each painful experience, each sickness, is really another opportunity to grow our faith and watch God act. 1 Cor 2:9 says "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived the good things God has prepared for those who believe in Him".

Today, will you have faith to believe? Will you choose to increase the degree of your faith? Until next time, keep looking up!
