This is one of my favorite Bible verses. It says, "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."
This one sentence is such a powerful message. It is a message that I try to remind myself of every time I get down because things don't seem to be going the way that I would have them go.
It's easy to stay in faith when everything is going well and you are happy and content. Sometimes in life things happen that you cannot make any sense out of. You don't get something you had been hoping to get. A situation works out differently than you had imagined. A tragedy occurs. These are the times when it is most important for you to dig deep and rely upon your faith to see you through.
Having faith means that you are certain of what you do not see.
You must be certain that God has your best interest at heart always. God's plan for your life has already been decided.
When things seem to fall apart it is so easy to feel sad and get caught up in feeling sorry for yourself. You will find, however, that you will be much happier, have less stress and find it easier to maintain a positive outlook on life if you can find it within yourself to know that when things seems to be falling apart it is simply God showing you that there is a different path you are meant to be on. In these times, you must dig deep and rely upon your faith to see you through.
God will never steer you wrong.
