Faith Is Built On Trust


Faith Is Built On Trust

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
Hebrews 11:1

Today I was led to this message about how faith is built upon trust.   The main message of this devotional is believing in God’s promises. He will do what He says. When we believe that God will fulfill His promises, even those we don’t see how they will materialize yet, we demonstrate true faith. In order to experience the power of God, we have to be willing to step out in faith, even when it seems there is no way, and no solution to the problem at hand. God will strengthen us as we go. Every problem contains a concentrated opportunity, and offers the option of stepping out in faith. The highest truths God has to offer are rarely wrapped in a beautifully wrapped or elegantly presented package, and handed to us on a silver platter. I am convinced that God takes heaven-sent treasures, buries them at the heart of a huge problem, then watches and applauds when we have what it takes to break that problem apart, finding the wealth hidden there in the darkness. The words of Isaiah say it well. “And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness – secret riches. I will do this so you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name” (Isaiah 45:3). The greatest treasures are often buried in the deepest pits, and require a step of faith to discover. Faith is built upon trust. God wants us to trust Him – even when we do not understand what is happening or can explain the circumstances. Even when nothing makes sense and everything seems wrong,. It is easy to trust Him when the seas are calm and the skies are clear, but the strength of our faith is measured in the midst of a raging storm. A crisis always reveals what is really inside.   Faith is a deliberate choice to believe God, to walk through our fear, knowing we can trust Him every step of the way.
