Do you have unmovable faith?
April 28, 2010
"… God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up."
I wonder what will happen when hardship and persecution increases in our country. I see so many people whose faith has become soft and sentimental.
But God wants you and me to build enduring faith within us now by obediently persevering through life's trials and difficulties. So that when even more trying times come we can be bold and strong in our faith. We need to be more like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego whom we meet in the book of Daniel.
Even when threatened with death, these men refused to bow down to the king's idol. Their faith in God was immovable and unshakable. And before King Nebuchadnezzar ordered them placed in a fiery furnace, they told the king they trusted God to deliver them, but regardless of the outcome, they'd never bow down to false gods!
Do you have this kind of faith? Will you allow God to do this within you? Will you stand strong in your faith today?
Let God develop enduring, stubborn, and steadfast faith within you now, and in days ahead, your faith will not fail!
WILL YOU STAND STRONG IN YOUR FAITH TODAY?
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
