But let me first look at those words and cross check with where I am at the moment.
Faith is confidence in what we hope for……. assurance about what we do not see.
Oh how I pray that I will not be found wanting in that area. It is hard at times having that assurance especially about thing we do not see. But, knowing that God would never have required it of us unless it was possible, gives me hope.
I was thinking over the story of Abraham and his faith. God surely tested this guy’s faith!!! Telling Abraham to kill his son, whom he loved very much!!! I don’t really know if I could have passed that test.
God does test our faith. It is very important. I have had mine put to the test occasionally and I am thankful for those times .
Last week, I felt joy when I chose to have faith and believe even with out seeing. It was amazing.
It is not like i have it all figured out because i fail many times but my prayer is that my faith will increase each day. Only God can do that in me if i give my heart to him.
