Isn’t it ironic that the basis of our belief in Jesus Christ is also the most difficult part of being a Christian? We are Christians because of our faith in Jesus, yet we also struggle with our faith in Jesus. For some, they become upset or discouraged when they struggle with their faith, yet through out the Bible we see many Godly individuals deal with the same struggle. Faith is not only the basis of our walk with the Lord, but it is also a gift from the Lord.
In 1 Corinthians 12:9 Paul writes, “9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,” As Paul is listing out the gifts of the Holy Spirits, he includes “faith” as one of those gifts.
As we pray for other gifts from the Holy Spirit (wisdom, knowledge, miracles, prophecy, tongues) don’t forget to pray for faith. It is by faith that we believe. It is by faith that we are recognized. It is by faith that we live.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey of faith!
