As we all know so well, things in life can be really tough. They can certainly do a number on us.
Everybody has a story to tell…some nuggets of life-lessons to pass on to somebody else along the journey.
Situations, people, things, attitudes, etc. can put our faith to the test. Mmmm…I’m reminded of a “nugget” I read of Hudson Taylor. He once declared, “It is not a great faith that we need, but faith in a great God.” Isn’t this the truth?!?!
At this very moment, wherever you are, whatever you may be doing, I strongly encourage you to keep believing. When God says, “Wait.” Don’t give up, just make sure to keep your eyes fixed on Him.
Here are a few verses to soak-in:
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer (Matt 21:22).
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours (Mark 11:24).
Even now God will give you whatever you ask (John 11:22).
I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father (John 14:13).
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit — fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name (John 15:16).
In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name (John 16:23).
