What would make a 75 year-old man leave a settled life and folks to begin life all over in a strange land? What would move three Hebrew youths to defy a godless monarch who demanded that they abandon the worship of Jehovah God for idolatry?
What would make two puny and unlearned fishermen confront a powerful Jewish Council that wanted them to stop the spread of the gospel? It is faith in a God who cannot fail; a God who promised to be with His people through floods of water and flames of fire (Isaiah 43:2). Our Lord promised His disciples saying, “I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20).
Repeatedly, we see a demonstration of the power of faith by those who truly believe in God. The apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ understood the indispensability of faith in their relationship with Him; so, they made a passionate plea for increment of their faith (Luke 17:5).
Truly, “without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).
Faith is everything to the believer. Our journey to heaven begins with faith in Christ as Saviour and Lord; we are sustained through this journey by the power of faith. Also, whatever we want from our Father in heaven is received through it.
Faith in a God who provides for the needy, heals the sick, takes care of widows and orphans, protects the weak from oppressors, makes the barren a mother, gives job to the jobless, will ensure that we lack nothing in life. In summary, those who know their God through faith will always be strong and do great exploits.
Thought for the day: Faith is the key that unlocks the door of blessings.
