Faith by definition means confidence or trust in a person or thing.
My definition of course, is having confidence in God. Although, we have not seen him, we still have faith that he exists.
My other definition would be believing in God’s word and what it says to be true about my life and the world around me.
We all go though a thing called life, and we have many battles we face on the daily basics. I don’t know what everyone goes through everyday, but I can ensure you if you give everything over to God, you will get though it.
I have been on a spiritual journey lately and I have listed below 4 of my favorite scriptures and why. I hope by reading this post, you will develop faith in God and build the confidence to know that he will bring you out of your situation, whatever that maybe.
- I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me (Philippians 4:13). This is my favorite scripture, because it reminds me through God, I can do All things. Not some, but all. I work full time. I am planing to attend graduate school in the fall, while writing and publishing my second book, and starting a brand. This scripture reminds me to put everything in God’s hands and allow him to work everything out for me. It’s this scripture that gives me the “I can” and “I will” spirit.
- Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6). This scripture reminds me that no matter how many people may talk against me or wish failure on me, I will bend, I will not fail. Don’t get me wrong here, this does not mean that I will do everything 100% right, because I am human and I will fail at times. This failure speaks to giving up. No matter how hard things get, no matter how much I want to throw in the towel, I will prevail! No matter how many people leave my side, I will always have God. Just saying that scripture over and over actually shifts your mind set to an achiever and not a person who gives up.
- Ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened for you (Matthew 7:7). This helps me gain clarification on what I am supposed to be doing or if I am going down the right path. When I feel that God has called me to do something or placed an idea in my mind, I pray and ask him for guidance.
- Trust in the lord and do good. Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the lord and he will give you the desire of your heart (Psalm 37:4). I absolutely love this scripture! This just reminds me that if I do things God’s way and stay faithful to his will and his commandants, he will give me everything I desire in my heart!
I have other scriptures that I really like, but these are some of my favorites. Deciding to fully devote my life over to God was the best decision that I have made in a very long time. It was not an easy thing to do, because I was so accustomed to doing what the world was doing. However, in the mist of me doing that I was depressed and alone. I based every decision off what people thought instead of what God thought. Instead of what I thought.
Having confidence in God and confidence in who he is, and what he has planned for my life, has brought me inner piece.
I’m writing this post today to tell you to have faith.
Have faith in God.
Have faith in his word
Have faith in his plans for your life.
Have faith that he is the omega, Jesus Christ, and our lord and savior.
I can promise you that when you truly try God out, you won’t be disappointed.
