The God of Faith
God is the God of faith.
There is no discrepancy, God loves people who believe in Him! There is also no denying, when God moves the earth shakes and everything that stands in His way bows at His feet absolutely. The word for faith in this verse is πίστεως and means, faith, faithfulness, trust, belief, or confidence. The verse goes on to clarify what faith is exactly. Faith is the believing that God exists! This is the key element in knowing the King of kings in all his glory. If he exists that means everything he is capable of and has been capable of he can do again, and repeat with ease. This means that no matter your situation, God is able and will redeem your time a thousand times over, because He is able. But what of those times He doesn’t move? Well this is another good question and worth asking. Pleasing God, means believing Him at His word every time.
Our faith can be challenged!
Take the life of Job for example. He was a man of many possessions and great faith in God. God allowed for everything to be taken away from Job, (Book of Job) because God was confident that Job would remain the test of time and calamity. Just because you have a rough situation does not mean your evil. There are occurrences which are there to strengthen your faith in the deeper parts you have yet to know, and then God reveals himself in person to comfort and restore you to your journey. By journey I mean the triumph you have gained through your dreadful ordeal. Trust God it is the only way you can please him. Give him his due and live according to his word. Hallelujah, Amen.
