Journey of Faith

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)

I moved my regular six-week adjustment with my chiropractor ahead due to increased pain. During the examination, he noted I have been under a lot of stress! What an understatement!! While the past weeks had been difficult, I was convinced God is in control and His promises are true. The Holy Spirit drew me to His Word, birthing an assessment of Biblical characters who understood stress. David fled for his life, Paul feared for his, Esther gambled hers, Mary submitted hers, and Jesus offered his.

What carried these individuals through the stressfulness of everyday living?

The answer: faith strengthened by a God who repetitively has proven Himself. They simply believed His promises. Why do we feel our lives are more stressful? We have an awareness of the outcome of their lives through reading the Bible, but somehow, we fail to acknowledge reaching the victorious end required a walk of faith. Appearing to be an easy journey, we cannot disregard the fact that every step of the way involved a confrontation of fear, anxiousness, uncertainty, worry, etc. They were exactly like us. Thankfully, at their weakest moments God’s strength was made perfect and His Word was manifested.

So, the next time stress becomes overwhelming try claiming the promises of God. Pray them out loud. Personalize them. The scriptures will bring comfort, reassurance, encouragement, and strength. Confidence will build in an all caring God. The great news: one day there will be a victorious end to your walk of faith too!

“Lord, please help me to believe your promises. Teach my heart to trust in You during stressful times and claim victory in spite of my circumstances.”

For His Glory
