In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
We’ve had a pretty tough year! How is your faith holding up? Here’s a good test. Are you worried and anxious about all that is going on, or are you at peace trusting that God will work things out? You see, when we worry, we are not trusting God. Trusting God is a reflection of our faith. Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1) Faith comes from hearing the Word of Christ. (Romans 10:17) Even a little faith can move mountains! (Matthew 17:20)
Does your faith need some bolstering up these days? Draw near to God (Hebrews 4:16) and spend time in His presence, allowing His Word to remind you how faithful He is. We can choose to believe His Word because He who promised is faithful and what He says, He will do. (Hebrews 10:23). Ask the Lord to strengthen you and to open your eyes to see Him at work in your situation. Let your confidence be in Him, not in your faith, but may your faith grow as you see the faithfulness of God. There is no one on earth we can trust more completely than our great God!
