[From Lauris Shepherd, one of our Elders]
Don’t forget our ½ Day of Prayer this Saturday Mar. 10 from 0800-1200 at Plaza Del Sol.
Prayer Tip #50
..we walk by faith, not by sight. – II Cor. 5:7
This possibly could be said of every person, much of the time. The real question is who/what is your faith in? Many times people are trusting in good luck, fate, themselves, someone else – depending on the situation.
What is the object of your faith? Is it trustworthy, proven faithful?
25 An arrogant man stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the LORD will prosper. 26 He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered. – Prov. 28:25-26
I’ve lived long enough to know I cannot trust myself. I want my hope and trust in the Unchanging God who made the heavens and the earth.
Abraham is our example, Romans 4:20,21 20 yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform.
My attitude and approach and consistency in prayer are all an indication of my faith.
For the Scripture says, “WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.” – Rom. 10:11
You can trust Him, whatever your need.
