"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen"
- (Hebrews 11:1)
It’s an amazing promise, isn’t it? That no matter where you are in your stillness or walk with the world God can meet you there. A lot of Christians don’t understand that it is by grace that you are saved. Grace is the absolute substance that makes God up. The next time someone asks you who God is tell them, “God is Grace” or you could simply reply, “God is Love”. God’s love and mercy abounds if we are only willing to look for it. Remember that nothing in this whole entire world can separate you from His love. As well, never forget that true faith is when you know what you believe, why you believe it, and you are committed in acting in accordance with it; and that anything less than that is not true faith. That is the kind of faith that you must have in God and the Bible.
Faith leads us beyond ourselves. It leads us directly to God. It is faith that directs our prayers and faith that directs God’s mercy on us. I am one of those who would rather sink with faith than swim without it. Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him, and expect help from Him, He will never fail you. Understand that all things can be done through Christ who strengthens you.
“The beautiful and majestic thing about this odd adventure called faith is that we can always and at any minute count on Him never to lead us astray.” - Charlie Swindoll
