Faith is like a chair trusting that it will hold you up when you sit down. So why is it hard to trust God sometimes when you are facing a difficult or challenging situation. You might be going through some hardships right. Losing a job, family matters or financial difficulties. The Word of God says in Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. You have faith on the chair and trusting that it will not make you fall. Same principle we need to apply in trusting God and taking Him at His Word, that is one true faith. For example, God told Noah to build an ark because there was going to be a massive flood.

Noah did just that and took God at His Word and built the ark. Faith is a necessity in Christians life, it is a complete trust and confidence in God not in anyone or anything else. There is no fear or doubt in faith. Faith is not a feeling that you turn it on or off whenever it is convenient for you. Faith in Jesus is a conviction that God loved us so much that He sent His Only Son to die and rise again on the third day for you and I. Faith is a result of believing the good news of the gospel of Christ. Consequently, faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of Christ Romans 10:17. The Bible says you cannot please God without faith. Regardless what you are facing today take God at His Word and have faith. Remember faith comes before your prayer is answered.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

• And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8

• So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

 • These have come so that the proven genuinenesse of your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 1 Peter 1:7
