"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).
As you continue to wait for life to begin to feel more "normal" again, how is the condition of your faith? Has it been dwindling as your difficult circumstances continue? Is it feeling like a roller coaster at times, soaring up some days and down other days? If you are being honest with yourself, do you see your faith steadfast in God alone, or placed also in others, or your own abilities to stay "safe?" Though it is good for us to be aware of what is going on and make wise, daily decisions to deal with the difficulties we face, our hope is to remain ultimately in the Lord.
May you seek Him today and allow Him to reveal to you the current condition of your faith. I pray we receive an even greater outpouring of faith from the heart of God into our own hearts.
Today’s Bible Reading: Hebrews 11:6, Philippians 3-4:1
A moment to reflect:
1. How is the condition of your faith?
2. If you are being honest with yourself, do you see your faith steadfast in God alone, or placed also in others, or your own abilities to stay "safe?"
3. Spend some time today and allow Him to reveal to you the current condition of your faith. Pull out those Scriptures you looked up, in a moment to reflect for part 2 of this series, and continue to mediate and pray through them. Put your own name in the verses as you pray.
God loves you so much, dear sister. He loves to pour out greater faith upon His children - keep seeking!
