Without faith your relationship with God remains insecure. The only way our confidence in Him can be assured is if we understand where our TRUST lies. Many say they trust God FOR, but my friend, our trust ought to be IN him, and if this be so, there would be no need to trust God for anything...
Time has come that we understand the "just live by faith" (Heb 10:38) and means: To completely trust with unwavering confidence in God and His word!.
Everything we would ever need is found in Him, for He is our Protector, our Healer, our Deliver, our Defender, our Guide, our Restorer, our Victory and Source, He is our EVERYTHING! In other words, whatsoever you need or desire, is found in Christ, for He is, I AM...
Oh, if the church would only understand this, then we will see ourselves as Christ sees us, COMPLETE, lacking nothing.
Friend, we lack because our trust is not in Him. Our relationship with God is where our lack is. This lack we talk about might be manifesting in our finances, but its root is found in our half-hearted relationship with God. When our relationship with our heavenly Father is restored, all the things we need and or desire will be added to us. This is an ongoing and basic principle Jesus taught in Matthew 6:33, which is quoted by so many, yet not exercised.
Ps 52:8 I am like an olive tree, thriving in the house of God. I will always trust in God's unfailing love.
By their faith;
The sinner... ALL place their confident trust in God knowing, the Redeemer of mankind is the Defender of the weak, the poor and the widow. He is the Strong arm surrounding His children, a Fortress in times of trouble, a Dependable Friend who sticks closer than a brother. Our God is able.
We are encouraged this day to place your TRUST in Him...
