The dictionary defines faith as complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the substance of things hope for and evidence of things not seen.
How are some of the ways we exercise faith?
By faith we go to bed and believe we will wake up the next morning. By faith we enter into relationships hoping they will be successful. By faith we trust our friends and believe the best about them. By faith we travel hoping to arrive safely.
When do people lose faith: Life experiences. Things seems cruel or unfair. When we put our faith in persons other than Jesus. When we fail to read the Bible and understand what the word of God is saying to us .
These circumstances can cause us to ask the question; “Where is God?”
What type of friends should we follow? Friends in Christ and saved friends—John 3:36 KJV. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
The bible tells us Faith without works is dead: James 2:14-26 KJV. Also without faith it is impossible to please God Hebrews 11:1.KJV. Let us continue to trust God, hold fast to our faith and He will continue to strengthen and keep us in all our ways.
