It’s not how much faith we have.
Have you seen people who seem to have so much faith? They pray about things and soon, they see answers to their prayers. Then, there are others who pray and pray for months, maybe years, without receiving answers. What makes them keep trusting? Why doesn’t their faith wither? It’s because they have taken their faith, no matter how small it was, and placed it in the right source.
Having faith in God is believing that God will accomplish what he says he will.
“God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” (Numbers 23:19)
Having faith is believing God doesn’t lie. Have you ever seen the faith of a child? That’s the kind of faith God honors—a faith that believes God can do anything. How do we acquire that faith? We acquire it by deciding to trust God—one decision at a time. Each time I make that decision, God gives me rest, just like this song, Rest in You by Nathan Peterson.
