Faith is a confidence. It is not wishful thinking. It is not mental assent. It is an assurance that what we believe will happen, will happen. But it is not faith in the event, it is faith in the event maker. We often act as if faith is a magic chant. We say, "Power is in our words." But faith is so much more than words. It is sensing His will and agreeing with Him. This only comes out of a relationship, a deep heart felt experience with the Lord Himself. Oh that we would know Him more so when life's situations come, we can talk to Him, be assured of His will, and pray in faith believing. Today grow in your relationship with Him and your faith and confidence will grow too.
Dear Father, I want to know you more. I want to know your will. I want to do your bidding. I want a deep loving relationship with you so my faith is an outgrowth of knowing who you are. In Jesus' name, amen.
