Our memorial (testimony) isn’t just meant for us to look back upon and reminisce. Our testimony is meant to propel us forward. We look backward to God’s faithfulness so that we can go forward in faith.
We need to understand that there are going to be obstacles in the way. Just because God is with us doesn’t mean it’s going to be smooth sailing. In fact, if we are on mission with God, it’s NOT going to be smooth sailing.
Worry is a state of anxiety and uncertainty over actual or potential problems that many people live in. When we worry, we allow our minds to dwell on the difficulties and troubles, whether real or perceived. This can have disastrous affects on all aspects of our health.
Do you feel like the heat is on? Like you’re in the pressure cooker and the steam is about to blow? Is your faith being tested? This story from Daniel shows us three ways we can walk through the fires of life and not get burned.
Can your faith handle the fire of a global pandemic? Unanswered prayers? A fallen Christian leader or mentor? Can your faith handle personal loss of possessions, health, or someone that you love?
A faith that is TESTED is a faith that can be TRUSTED.
Fear is trusting that our knowledge of the past is better than God’s knowledge of the future.
Lord, You have always given strength for the coming day;
and though I am weak, today I believe.
