Topic: Faith In Trying Times
When your faith is expressed, God is compelled into action.
SCRIPTURE: Then believed they his words; they sang his praise. Psalm 106:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When your faith is expressed, God is compelled into action.
Worshipping God, especially in hard and trying times is a rare but true expression of faith. It is crucial because worshipping God in the midst of conflict is an expression of faith in Him.
From our anchor scripture, we understand that: Then believed they his words; they sang his praise. This means when you worship God, it confirms that you believe His Word, so you are singing His praise. For instance, you will be full of praise when you believe God’s Word that said:
…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. – Psalms 30:5
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? — Psalm 27:1
The devil wants you to mourn but you are dancing, because you believe God’s Word. But this is the most exciting part of it: anywhere God sees faith, He moves into action, for without faith, it is impossible to please (move) God (Hebrews 11:6).
So, praise God, especially in battles, in conflicts, and in the midst of situations you don’t understand, etc. When your faith is expressed, God is compelled into action.
REMEMBER THIS: When your faith is expressed, God is compelled into action.
Grow your faith by reading, studying the Word of God and praying in the spirit.
Praise God for what He has done, what He is doing and what He is yet to do.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You increase my faith to meet my challenges. Help me not to lose faith or give up in trying times, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
