Finding Hope in: Faith
Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:6–7)
As revealed in scripture, God is faithful to His Word. Just like scripture exposes Truth as we come to know God, we can discover in our own lives how God’s promises come to life as we believe in them. We must come to know God to know His great promises. God has placed a desire in our hearts, and He is sure to carry it out. We must believe in faith and in God’s timing, letting go of our preconceived ideas. Although God’s timing is different than our own, making the best of our time allows us to forget about the wait. Then, perhaps, while we wait for the very thing our heart desires, it will be there at our footsteps in the least expected way; we can rest assured that the wait was worth the while.
My Word gives you direction and strength; you must seek My Word to discover this rarity. In My living Word, you will find truth that was once vacant in your life, but now this truth will be made known by the call of My name. I am faithful to My promises I have made for you. But you will not ever know them if you do not look for Me. I am never far from your side; rather, I am by your side, urging you to press forward in faith to discover the beauty of life through Me, your Father in heaven. Faith is the evidence of things hoped for but not yet seen. Faith is your awareness of My existence and the assurance that I will follow through with My plans for you. If you are in My will, your plans succeed. Working in My will provides you with many unknown treasures held dear to your heart. As you wait for your breakthrough, understand it is already bursting through the seams of life that are withered and torn. You must believe this truth to see this mighty revelation that is a result of faithfulness.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)
Prayer for the Day
Dear Father, I love You, and I thank You for Your promises given to me in Your holy scripture. You are a faithful God, and I praise You that You have good things in store for me. Though the world tries to deter me from this truth, I pray that I remain steadfast in Your love and Your promises. Thank You, Father. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen!
