Encouraging others in Christ

Have you ever wondered what it really means…

Hello fellow Bloggers,

Have you ever wonder what it means to have faith to trust God? I am talking about when the situations in life become so complicated it seems unbearable. Have you been in a situation lately that has caused you to dig down deep into the roots of your faith just in hopes of staying the course?
While barely scraping the surface of the book Hebrews, I found that the second generation Christians had a definite cause to feel like quitting and going back to their old ways. By placing their trust in Jesus Christ and accepting the New Testament as a replacement for the Old, they encountered many problems. The Jewish believers were disowned by family members and long-time friend because they couldn’t understand why they would turn to Christianity. In fact, once they accepted Christ, they nearly lost their identity of who they had been.

How does one find the type of faith needed to keep going through the fire every day?
I know several friends who are under the pressure of wanting to quit. Prayer is our weapon to keeping our focus, as well as reading God’s Word.

Any advice?

  1. Realizing that I am not my own, that I was bought at an infinite price, delivered me from a momentary entrapment by a spirit of suicide the other day. That’s a very powerful truth. Hallelujah!

    • Yes, Deanna, it is a very powerful truth…so very thankful that the voice of the Holy Spirit broke through the darkness that you were inside of…keeping the focus some days can be difficult to do. Enduring will be worth it in the end . God has made us a promise that He will bring about for us… πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ

    Be still and know that He is God. The harder we try to control things, the deeper we fall. Be assured that God is in charge.

    • Amen!!! The being still is the most difficult job…so true that we have to rest assured that He is completely in charge of ALL things …faith is the ultimate gift that enables us to trust Him at His Word😰

  3. God is in control! His plans are BIGGER than mine! He gives me strength to keep pressing on… Wait upon the Lord! He’s slow sometimes but there’s a reason for that… Those hot days I want to give up but He never leaves me, He’s always with me! He knows what’s best, not me! We cant lean on our own understanding! The Lord knows ALL THINGS and each and every need of our hearts!

    • Amen Sweet Ginger!!! We have to keep the faith, although the devil whispers his tactics to make us discouraged and want to quit, we must stand firm in the confident hope hat we have in His Word through the Scriptures…He loves us!!!
