FAITH… It’s not what you know, it’s Who you know!
Seems to me that much of what is the modern day church in the USA has become all about education. While I totally agree that informing ourselves about scripture is greatly necessary, faith in God at its core is about a PERSON not information. Do you know this person that happens to be the One God? What is He like? What does He do? Is He trustworthy? Is He personal with you?
Faith that stands in the face of all the world can throw at us comes down to Who you KNOW God to be. In great loss or overwhelming circumstances we face, do we question God’s integrity? Will we accuse Him of being the source of our difficulties? Or do we confidently see our beloved One as the answer… ALWAYS THE ANSWER AND NEVER THE PROBLEM.
True faith stands in the midst of this evil world that is in opposition to God, His authority and Kingdom, and knows He is the source of all good and as we follow His right here, right now leading, He always leads us in victory!
1 John 5:3-4 (NASB) 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. 4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
