Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Faith In God Changes Everything

Friends, we must have faith. 😃 Hebrews 11:6 tells us “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” And Romans 10:17 tells us “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Even faith the size of a mustard seed can grow! 😁

Having faith in God changes everything. Knowing the Word of God for ourselves, as well as a personal relationship with God, through His son Jesus, deepens our faith to have freedom to live life knowing who we are! Sons and Daughters of the King! 😉 Our self worth is in Him by faith! Nothing or no one can change that by faith! 😀 Can we get a witness? 😉

Faith in God changes how we relate to stuff. Faith in God changes how we think. There is no doubt. There is no if. There is no confusion. Friends, the deeper our faith, the less we entertain negative thoughts or stuff! 😃 Praise The Lord!

Faith can also teach us contentment. What ever state God has us in today is temporary. Let us keep the faith as it relates to our health, finances, marital status, or fill in the blank________. 😁 God has a plan and as we trust in Him by faith, His will be done. 😉

Sometimes, our faith will be tested, and it’s those times, we trust and lean more on Him as we walk by faith and not by sight! Sometimes, we will have to praise Him through the testing of our faith, especially those days when we want to question stuff. The more fruit in our life, the easier it is to walk by faith!

It’s a beautiful thing to grow and become more spiritual each day by faith! Have faith and roll with it! 😜
