Let Faith Arise

I come to this page fairly often, look at the date and think, "Man, I need to post something!"  I think a minute, and then say to myself, "Nah, I don't have anything worthwhile to say." 

I write for another blog now as well, a commitment that takes priority over writing for this.  Today, I am going to share my other post...

Let Faith Arise

I receive a daily scripture in email from K-Love radio every day. I saved this one and have read it several times this week:
                           For our present troubles are small and won't last very long.
                         Yet they produce for us a   glory that vastly outweighs them
                     and will last forever!                  (2 Corinthians 4:17, NLT)

I am so thankful for the promises God makes to us in His word! These are the thoughts that thrill me to my core…that I cling to when trouble comes:  

· No matter how big my trouble seems…God says it is small. 
· My present trouble…is temporary! 
· This is the big one…this trouble will bring glory for me…Glory! 
· This glory is eternal.


 Chris Tomlin recently penned these lyrics:  

“Be still, there is a Healer
His love is deeper than the sea
His mercy, it is unfailing
His arms a fortress for the weak

Let faith arise
Let faith arise


I lift my hands to believe again 
You are my Refuge, You are my Strength
As I pour out my heart
These things I remember
You are faithful God, forever
Let faith arise...”


When any trouble comes, we will flounder if our faith does not rise up within us. Faith arises as we remember and choose to believe the promises God has made. Hide His Word within Your heart so when trouble comes and you pour out your heart to Him - you will not spend one moment in doubt, or fear, or distress. The Holy Spirit will bring His Word to mind and you can choose to let your faith arise!

Thanks for the post, Sis! That's one of the things the persecuted church has taught me and reinforces in me almost daily. As I read story after story and see what strong faith is in action. Humbling, convicting, and inspiring.

Wow! Just what I needed to hear today. How great to know this is temporary...and bringing about my future glory! Praise God Almighty! Thank you for sharing your heart here and sharing how God speaks to you. It speaks to me also.

I cannot believe you would tell us you are writing for another blog and not share where with us.
