A Place for Faith
Every day it seems like there is more bad news: scandals in our government, threats against our national security, and the continued threat of terrorism. And then there are the personal problems that we all will face at one time or another: the death of a loved one, an illness, a family problem.
Just as there is a spiritual solution to the problems in our country, there is a spiritual solution for the problems in our lives too. Is your marriage struggling? There is an app for that. We find it in the Scriptures. God tells you how to have a successful marriage. He tells you what the role of the husband is and what the role of the wife is. Are you single and looking for the right person? There is a spiritual and biblical solution to that as well. Are your finances in a mess? There is a biblical and spiritual answer for that. God has told us to call on Him in our day of trouble.
Some might say, "I have tried this, and it didn’t work."
If you do what God says, it will work.
There is a difference between skepticism and unbelief. Skepticism is open to believing; unbelief is refusing to believe. Skepticism can involve honesty; unbelief is stubbornness. Skepticism looks for light; unbelief is being content with darkness. We need to believe the Word of God and then act on it.
There is a place for faith in the Christian life. Hebrews 11:6 tells us, "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him."
The Bible is filled with stories of people who receive blessings in their life because of faith.
