Do You Believe?

The importance of a deep, knowledgeable, obedient, and trusting faith in the Lord cannot be overstated.  It is the essence of spiritual life.

Try remembering three phrases from the Bible.

“Nothing doubting.”  When praying, we must not doubt God’s willingness to hear nor His ability to act (James 1:6).  And, we must not doubt His blessing as we do His will (Matthew 6:33).

“Fully persuaded.”  When Abraham considered the promises of God, he did not waver in unbelief, but was fully convinced that what God had promised, He was able also to perform (Romans.4:18-20).

‘Shall be added” To help us overcome worry, Jesus reminds that if we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, then He will provide our needs (Matt.6:33).

Life is difficult when we lose the simple faith.
