Big Faith

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.”

– Hebrews 11:1,2

The absolutely amazing thing about being a Christian is that your faith can always be bigger than your fear! This isn’t to say that you won’t deal with feelings of trepidation, anxiety, or worry, but because of the Holy Spirit’s residence within your heart, you can choose to exercise trust whenever they emerge. Even if you are a person who loves to envision worst case scenarios, the reality is that because you live, move, and have your being in Jesus, what appears to be bad from a human perspective will ultimately lead you to an eternal life that’s much greater. Nothing can touch the precious soul that your Savior has redeemed — even death itself — and as you walk back from there, the many things that concern you lose their power over your mind. Since all the days ordained for you were written in His book before one of them came to be, He watchfully guards and protects each one so you can boldly embrace the work He wants to do through you. Though you may struggle for a season and even be required to endure suffering, nothing can separate you from God’s love. His Spirit offers confident assurance that every pain will one day have a revealed purpose, and that no moment of your human experience will be wasted. Because you are confident of this, you can seize bold faith — the kind that surrenders everything with abandon, knowing it will gain something better in return! 

My friend, even in a season that is assailing your mind every day with new reasons to be afraid, you can exercise the kind of faith that moves mountains and is a conduit of miracles. Because you know how the story ends, the devil has lost his grip on you, and you are no longer paralyzed by the unknown. Since you have surrendered the false sense of security tendered by fear, you are primed to be a messenger of hope and healing to those who need to know that there is a better way. As you go forth in the knowledge that losing your life means only to gain it back, and with more, your daring and radical trust is drawing many to a life-changing knowledge of your Savior! 

Prayer


Jesus, thank you for redeeming even the deepest difficulty with the promise of eternal life. Help me to live with a bold faith that reflects your goodness to others.
