His words continue to replay in my thoughts.
“What does it mean to have faith?”
What do you place your faith in? Who do you place your faith in?
Faith in God and His Son, Jesus.
Faith in the One, who is who He says He is.
Faith in His unchangeable character.
Faith in His sovereignty.
Faith that nothing is impossible for Him, or through Him.
Believing in Him, trusting in Him, because without Him there is no real faith.
Faith in things, or other people, or in ones self….is empty.
I am weak, but He is strong.
I am fickle, but He is the Rock.
I know so little, but He is all knowing.
I am quick to anger, but He is long-suffering, patient.
I give up and want to quit, He knows no limits.
Without this faith, it is impossible to please God.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6 NIV
