Firm in Faith

God gives a strong warning about the stability of our faith in the Book of Isaiah when the people still had an opportunity to hold fast to His divine promises to spare them from destruction. At the core they were struggling with disbelief.

“If you are not firm in faith, you will not be firm at all.” (Isaiah 7:9b)

Near the end of King David’s life after God had delivered him out of many life threatening trials, betrayals and warfare he accounted his triumph to his faith in God and His divine promise to establish his throne forever;

“As the Lord lives, who has redeemed my soul out of every adversity…” (1Kings 1:29)

God also gives a strong warning for the unstable in faith. He connects instability in faith to a lack of trust in His wisdom to lead us through adversity.

“But let him ask in faith with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:6-8)

Jesus warned us that we would have trouble in this world. He also encouraged us to take heart and trust in Him who has overcome the world. In other words, He has already made provision for us to triumph! We are called to trust the process of being led and God’s readiness to help at every turn of events.

“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.” (Psalm 34:17)

Be firm in your faith and God will deliver you out of all your troubles!

    My faith in God delivers me daily from the darkness in this world because my enemies are many. As a result of my unbreakable faith, I am stronger than my enemies.
