During times of trial and in the midst of obscurity a great many of us need some guidance to navigate through trials. For me, I find solace int he fact that I was given the one thing needed to have peace.
This thing is substantive; this thing is tangible; it is built on a solid foundation and it can never fail. What is it? If you haven't guessed by now, let's delve deeper into its characteristics.
It is given!
It is tangible!
It NEVER fails!
It's what we NEED!
The most important feature is it's yours forever!
I remember a while back when my wife was giving a gift to our nephew in another state; he was 10 years old at the time. Years later (about 6 years later).....we found the gift (a toy) still in the box wrapped, ready to mail, in the closet. (LOL) We laughed and joked about giving it to him at the time -- he was then 16! The gift was not viable anymore for him. The gift is in perfect condition; but, it's not going to impact him. Things like this are man-made gifts. They wear out or become obsolete. This gift or thing I'm talking about is FAITH. (Bet, you were thinking of something else!)
Faith is given! Romans 12:3 "......according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith."
Faith is a thing! Hebrews 11:1 ".....Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Faith is tangible! It is evident... Romans 10:17 "So then faith cometh....." 2 Cor 5:7 "For we walk by faith,...) Ephesians 4:5 "One Lord, one faith,..."
Faith NEVER fails!
It's what we need to have peace!
When you operate in faith you move on an assumption of victory! There is NO Doubt!!
When Faith works -- (faith without works is dead) -- your measure is enough for you to believe!
God is there to provide, protect and He gives you the power to.....Move Mountains!!
