Strengthened in the Faith

Colossians 2 6-7

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 2:6-7

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

 

As believers in Christ we must strive for spiritual maturity. We cannot grow without first being tested. If we are rooted in Christ, when trials come our faith will be made stronger when we trust in the Lord and continue to be thankful for His goodness and mercy in all situations.

Trust God

Psalm 31 14

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 31:14

But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.”

 

In the worst of times you can trust in God to be with you. You can trust that He is on the throne ready to protect and defend you. By faith, leave all your troubles at the feet of the Creator. He is your God and in Him you may trust no matter what trials befall you. Turn to God because He is merciful and He loves you more than anyone ever can.

God Has the Answers

Proverbs 3 5 (2)

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

 

We won’t always know the answer to why we are going through something or why things are turning out the way they are, we just need to trust the one who does.  God knows everything from the beginning to the end. He knew you before you were born and He knows the plans He has for your future.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, surrender to His will and know that He loves you and everything He does is out of love for you.

Pray for God’s Will to Be Done

Matthew 6 10.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 6:10

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

 

If you don’t know how to pray or what to pray for, start by praying for God’s will to be done in your life. Praying for God’s will to be done is an act of faith because we know and believe God’s will is perfect and we trust in the plans He has for us. Don’t be intimidated by long, loud or eloquent prayers.  Prayer doesn’t have to be full of big, fancy words it just has to be from your heart.  Have a sincere conversation with God and pray knowing and believing that He hears you.
