Can God heal? Yes, he can. Does God intervene in impossible situations? All the time. Does God move the hardest of “mountains,” the human heart? Absolutely. But do we ask him? Maybe we don’t pray for these kinds of things because we’ve grown up too much. What would it look like for you to have faith like a child and how would it change your prayers?
What is Faith?
In part two of “Having Faith in Tough Times”, Dr. Krejcir explores what faith is and how faith in God sustains us and gives us hope, even when life is hard. He also reminds us that others are watching our example. Have you ever experienced life-giving faith in Christ? If you’re new to the Christian journey, how has the faith of others encouraged you?
The Security of Faith
Are you or someone you love struggling? Are you wondering, "Why is this happening? Where to turn for security? How to maintain hope? Whom to trust? Will faith wane?" Psalm 91 teaches us that we must encourage each other to experience a security of faith and to "fear no evil." From God's high place, nothing can take us out. Let us discover how we can overcome and endure whatever life brings us.
Having Faith in Tough Times
Struggles are real and our questions about them are not easily answered. In the midst of our difficult times - times of confusion and loss of hope - our outlook can become skewed as we are consumed by our circumstances. However, Christ saves us and sustains us, even when times are tough. How have you experienced God’s faithfulness, even when life is hard?
Don’t Delay Obedience (Take Five)
Obedience is a tricky thing, isn’t it? Often we seek to obey God’s commands, but then find ourselves hoping for a reward, such as a better life, answered prayer or fixed problems. This week, our Take Five focuses on obedience, not because we can earn God’s favor or an earthly reward, but because our obedience is what he desires for us and is our offering to him.
Beauty of Salvation (Take Five)
Righteousness, forgiveness, not being judgmental and accepting God’s love are all nearly impossible for us to accomplish without God‘s grace and transforming power in our lives. This week, we’re focusing on the changes that his love has brought to our hearts, and the salvation that only Jesus offers. Share with us a story about your relationship with God.
