Faith in Difficult Times

The scripture above is challenging and encouraging at the same time.

To be a person of unwavering faith, as Abraham was, is what I seek. Paul shared Abraham’s strength in Romans 4:20-21:

“Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever He promises.”

It’s only possible to do this as you learn to put your trust in God. As you walk out your life in close union with Him.

But let me encourage you with this: at times when I have wavered in my faith, when I have battled doubts and unbelief, God remained faithful to me.

Whenever I confess, “Father, please help me. I’m struggling to hold on…struggling to believe…” He has been right there to lift me up with a Rhema word:

Rhema is the Greek word used in the Bible for word, and refers to the instant, personal speaking of God to us.” ~ from Bibles For America website

Don’t give in to fear and doubt, just call out to God and He will be right there to hold you up and keep you from falling. If you do fall, don’t allow condemnation and guilt keep you from the One who will comfort you, forgive you & pick you back up.

Blessings & strength to you, in the wonderful name of Jesus.

“God is our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1 Amplified Bible

“If we are unfaithful, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny who He is.” 2 Timothy 2:13

God is Faithful…

…even when we are not…

“Always remember that Jesus Christ, a descendant of King David, was raised from the dead. This is the Good News I preach. And because I preach this Good News, I am suffering and have been chained like a criminal. But the word of God cannot be chained. So I am willing to endure anything if it will bring salvation and eternal glory in Christ Jesus to those God has chosen.”

“This is a trustworthy saying:

“If we die with Him,
    we will also live with Him.
 If we endure hardship,
    we will reign with Him.
If we deny Him,
    He will deny us.
If we are unfaithful,
    He remains faithful,
    for He cannot deny who He is.” ~ 2 Timothy 2:8-13 New Living Translation
