Scripture tells us that the just will live by faith. That it is impossible to please God without faith.
I’ve been a Christian a long time, (39 years to be exact) I should know about faith. My CD is titled “Living by Faith”. I should know about faith. My oldest daughter is a miracle, God has used my “little red-head” to teach me so much, & my son — he’s all boy–has been the cause of many a prayer. I should know about faith. We’ve walked through health scares, financial problems & lived in this sin-sick world with the promise that He would never leave us or forsake us. I should know about faith. But………
The Lord has been taking me on an amazing journey. I find that I don’t know about faith like I should. He’s brought me so far, but I have so much farther to go. Honestly, I fret instead of pray. I worry instead of trust, & fear often stalks me like a monster from the shadows.
It’s funny how God uses moments in our life to illuminate & shine a spotlight on our hearts. In the brightness of His scripture my heart needs an overhaul. I feel like the father in scripture who asked for Jesus to help his child. ” I believe, help my unbelief!”
