Thoughts on my Devotion this morning…
People let me down.
I let myself down.
Promises are made, but not kept.
Words are given but then broken.
It’s impossible to have real faith in others. It’s also impossible to have real faith in myself.
How many times have I said, “I’m going to <insert intention here>”, and then didn’t follow up? This knowledge can really destroy my ability to have faith, period.
God never asked me to have faith in others. He never asked me to have faith in myself. He asked me to have faith in Him.
He has NEVER lied, let me down, failed to fulfill His promises, spoke a word and then broke it. Never. He has ALWAYS been faithful to His word. Always.
When I read Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
I have to remember that I must have faith in God, that He is my only source, He is the One who is the substance of things hoped for, He is the One who is the evidence of things not seen.
THAT is true faith. It all goes back to relationship, to my belief that God has all the answers, has made a way, and WILL work all things for my good, BECAUSE.. He said He would.
Faith = Believing that God’s word is true. ALL of it.
