Stand Firm in Faith
Any builder knows that a firm foundation is key
to a sound and solid structure. Jesus even
told a parable about two men, one who built
their house upon the rock and another who built
their house upon the sand. The sand was
not a firm foundation and when storms arose, the
Faith is what allows us to stand on a firm
foundation. Our foundation is the rock,
Jesus Christ. Faith is what connects us to
Jesus. There is no other way that we can
approach God than through faith.
Faith shouldn't and can't be a once in a while
thing. We can't choose to have faith when
it is convenient and then turn our faith off
when it seems convenient. Such faith is
not real faith at all.
We don't know when the storms of life will
appear. Therefore we don't know when we
will need our faith most of all. Many
people run to God when things get tough but they
nothing about God. They can't hold of to
God's promises in faith because they never
learned them. They know nothing of the
character of God and can't truly trust Him so
their faith is pointless.
True faith holds on to God at all times.
It is grounded in truth and understand of who
God is and what He has promised. This kind
of faith will stand strong in the worst of
circumstances because God is stronger than all
