How’s your faith today? Faith is hard, even on the best days. I just read my daily dose of the news and I don’t know about you, but I need a faith boost. Faith doesn’t come through gritted teeth or positive thinking, it comes through God’s Word. It is alive and life-giving, enlivened by the Holy Spirit. We must look to God’s Word.
“. . . faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17, NKJV)
In 2 Chronicles 20, King Jehoshaphat gets some concerning news and his faith is lagging (like mine). It says in verse 3 that he was “alarmed.” So what did he do? He prayed (see vs. 6-12).
I am hanging onto vs. 12, “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you.”
That is prayer. Prayer happens when we call upon the Name of the Lord.
God help me to put my eyes upon You today.
“. . . fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” (Hebrews 12:2, NIV)
Are you alarmed today? Pray! Look to Jesus! Call upon His Name!
