So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Your faith pleases God and it releases His power in your situation. But too often we try to manage our lives without including faith in the equation!
When that happens, we can become burdened with worry and confusion, and then wonder why we’re not living a victorious Christian life.
Faith is a must-have when walking daily with the Lord. It’s like a muscle... the more you exercise it, the stronger it becomes. Faith isn’t feelings or emotions; it’s believing that God will do what He says He will do.
True faith can only come from a personal relationship with Jesus… and that relationship can only be deepened by spending time in God’s Word.
So today, if you want to build your faith muscles, make time to read your Bible. As you do, your heart will be encouraged by God’s promises and you can approach your daily life with the confidence that comes from your relationship with Christ!
FAITH WILL GROW IN YOUR HEART AS YOU SPEND TIME IN GOD’S WORD.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
