Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given you today is from the book of Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see”. We need to have strong faith in God. Learn to put your trust in the Lord for He will always be your ever present help.
The bible talks about a person named Abraham. Abraham is the father of faith. Abraham was strong in his faith. Abraham did not have a child for many years. At the age of 75, God promised Abraham that He would bless him with a son. When he was 100 years old, the Lord fulfilled the promise of blessing him with a baby boy (Isaac). Hebrews 11:17 says, “By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son…”. Abraham had great faith in God. He knew that God had a plan for him and so without any further questions, he did what the Lord told him. God told Abraham to sacrifice his only son. Even at this moment, Abraham had great faith in God. As Abraham did exactly what the Lord had asked him, the Lord spared his son’s life and gave Abraham a goat to be sacrificed. God blessed Abraham and his generation.
You must also learn to build your faith in God. God is the only one whom you can trust completely. He knows every desire of your heart. Whenever you do anything, you must know that through Christ you will be able to finish what you have been called for. God encourages you to do well in life because you are very dear to Him. God will not test you beyond your capacity. He is a compassionate God. He will do the best for you.
Dearly beloved, you need to be focused in what you do. The bible says, “Faith is the confidence in what you hope.” Learn to trust God at all times. Have faith in Him. If there is any problem that you are facing and do not know what to do, just trust in the Lord and tell Him your problem. He will be with you and guide you.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord, I pray that Your children may grow strong in their faith in You. Father, may Your children experience Your faithfulness in their lives. May You guide them and show them the way in which they should go. In Jesus name we pray,
