The Bible defines faith as the ‘substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.’ It is faith that makes you more than a conqueror. Faith will cause you to get back up when you have been knocked down. Faith will not allow one to quit when the going gets rough. Faith will hold you steady when everything around you is falling apart and faith will cause one to focus on the things that are not seen and not on the things that are seen.
There are many things that can cause you to become discouraged in life but Believers have victory through Jesus Christ. Therefore, you must believe that all things work together for good, and when tough times come, it is faith that will help you to move forward. Today’s strength will come from remembering what God has already done for you. If you are a child of God, nothing can ever separate you from His love so guard your heart with that thought. You will never have a problem that God cannot solve and no matter what the circumstances of your life might be right now, encourage yourself in the Lord. You have this present victory.
The just shall live by faith and if you follow that rule, you will win. You have much to not only be thankful for but you have much to rejoice over because ‘your light afflictions cannot compare to the glory that will be revealed. (Romans 8:18).
