By Faith

07:23




The just person, the one in right standing before God, is the one who lives by faith. 

How do I do this today?  What do I need to be certain of to live by faith? My problems are plain; I can almost touch them — they breathe, they have.a heartbeat, they take up spaces, within me and in my environment. Is living by faith saying “Despite X, God is able/powerful/real/etc? Is it believing the best of a situation?


Is it allowing God’s word to dictate my perspective in every situation that I encounter? Is there substance, or weight, or truth to what God says, that I choose to believe him. To live by faith, I must believe that yes, what he says is true, is valuable. To live by faith is to live in the assurance and confidence that what His word says about me, my future, my destiny is true, yes and amen. How else can the poor say “I am rich”, and the weak say “I am strong” if they do not believe? And although judgement may sweep through the land, and the earth is in turmoil, our faith in Jesus, and not our actions of “goodness”, is what makes us right before God. Other than His mercy alone, there is always hope for those who have put their confidence in the Lord.
