Be Brave

10 Oct

“Be brave to stand for what you believe in even if you stand alone.”  ~ Roy T. Bennett,

One of the definitions of faith is “belief that is not based on proof”.  There is an awful lot about our faith that cannot be proven.  Philosophers throughout the ages have tried to “prove” the existence of God.  There are many proofs out there.

Yet, as humans, our proof always comes down to what we can see, touch, feel, smell, taste.  We do not like to believe in things unseen.  Jesus addressed that in the Gospel when he questioned whether or not there would be any faith found on earth when the Son of Man returned.

It’s a good question and one that, I believe, demands an answer.  Do we have faith in God?  Do we truly trust Him?

Our prayer life is a direct reflection of that faith and trust in God.  How much time do we spend in prayer?  How much time do we spend reflecting upon the great love of God?  How often do we turn to God for help?  Are we willing to ask Him for assistance?  Or, do we leave it all to ourselves?

When the Son of Man comes and knocks on your door, will you recognize Him?

FAITH ACTION:  Whether they be prayers of supplication, praise, thanksgiving, or petition, make sure that you create time today to pray to God.  Let Him know that you have faith in Him!
