Faith is at the heart of our Christian life. We are saved by grace through faith; we receive forgiveness of our sins, enjoy a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, and have assurance of our salvation all through faith. By faith we experience the peace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. The Word of God tells us that praying in faith “avails much” (James 5:16). Yet we live lives that tend to be characterized by doubts and wavering faith. Our faith wavers when we (1) Apply human thinking to our circumstances (2) Allow our feelings to overcome our faith (3) Fail to see God at work in our circumstances (4) Have guilt over sin, past or present (5) Listen to the enemy’s lies. Faith is described in Scripture as “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). Does confidence and conviction define your faith? You think about that.
