The Just Shall Live By Faith

When everything in our life seems rosy, we are eager to confess that we believe in God. However, do we hold on to our faith when faced with troubles and miseries? Jesus said, “In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). It is not God’s will for you to suffer and be stuck in any kind of trouble. So, all that you have to do is to place your firm trust in the Lord and profess God’s promises in your life. As the Bible states, “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.” (Hebrews 10:38).

Don’t let the hard-pressed situation drift you away from the Lord. Continue to trust Him, for He loves you just the way you are. You may ask, what is faith? The dictionary meaning of faith is ‘great trust in someone or something’ but the Bible says, “faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see” (Hebrews 11:1). In the Gospel of Mark 9:22-24, we read about a father who brought his son to Jesus to be healed by Him. Jesus comforted the father saying, “Everything is possible for one who believes”. Yes, if you only believe, you will witness miracles in your life. When you believe and pray for anything, it shall be fulfilled.
Years ago, I had traveled to Kuala Lumpur for a prayer convention. One day, the pastor who invited me to share the word of God, requested me to pray for some people. A sister from China, brought her son to me to get prayed for; as he was deaf in both ears. Immediately, I laid my hands on the little boy and prayed with a burden, “Lord, heal this child” and then turned to pray for the others. In the next few minutes, I heard a shout caused by the mother of the little boy. She was rejoicing for her son could hear without the hearing aids. The boy was repeating exactly what she spoke to him. They were very happy and thanked the Lord, for this miracle.

My dearly beloved, our Jesus is not dead. He’s alive! And the righteous shall live by faith. Irrespective of the myriad of problems that you face, God is with you and will deliver you out of all your problems. Let not your hearts be troubled, trust in the Lord and see great miracles happening in your life. For Jesus says, “Everything is possible for one who believes” (Mark 9:23).
Prayer:
Mighty God, I thank and praise you for all the blessings in my life. Help me to stay strong in my faith, even in the midst of afflictions. For you, O Lord, will never leave me nor forsake me. Help me to place my complete trust in you and nothing else!
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
