Stock markets have fallen. Investments have been shaken. The world is not the same place it was just weeks ago.
But the Lord never changes. We can bank on that! The unwavering faithfulness of God is the basis of our own faith.
Faith is not something we ourselves can generate. The Bible tells us that faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of God. Faith is imparted into our hearts by the Holy Spirit.
Faith leaps over barriers that reasoning can’t get past. Faith always accomplishes God’s will.
Faith isn’t positive confession, although faith does speak and act. But sometimes it’s silent faith that perseveres through hardship, sickness or persecution. Faith is not a way to avoid troubles, but a way to go through troubles.
Faith truly is a gift that comes from God.
Jesus himself asked that when He returns will he find faith on the earth? Or will he find us positively confessing our own desires and expecting God to act because we have spoken?
Lord, increase our faith!
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
1 Corinthians 12:9
to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by [a]the same Spirit
Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
