We’ve Come This Far By Faith

The Bible tells us that Christians are to walk by faith and not by sight.  As I look back over the years, I have come to one conclusion, and that is I’ve come this far by faith.  Many times I’ve had to lean on the Lord and trust in His holy word and I know for certain that I would not be here today if it had not been for the Lord.

It’s so easy to look at things we see and think that those things are real; but if you live by  faith, you will acknowledge the Lord in all of your ways and He will direct your path.  Almighty God can take something that appears negative and turn it into something positive.  God’s word is true and if you base your life on what God says, your life will be much different than someone who doesn’t believe.

If you look at the current events in our world today, you have cause to become fearful, anxious and stressful.  It looks like we are on a downward spiral with no hope in sight; but believers will always have hope.  God has a specific plan for your life and His plans for you are to give you a good future, to prosper you and to keep you from evil.  Believers have a friend that will stick closer to them than a brother.  The Lord Jesus Christ has promised never to leave you or forsake you and how wonderful it is to know that even when you leave this world, your eternal life is just beginning.

Take a moment to think back over all the things that you have had to go through in your life and you will come to realize that the only reason you are here is that God’s purpose for your life has not yet been completed.  Faith brought you to this point and your faith will lead you on.  God has never failed you and He never will as long as you believe.
