Faith for the Future

What keeps you going? I like to get a good strong cup of coffee in the morning, listen to AFR to find out what’s going on since I went to bed, and get ready for work. I like to think the coffee helps. But faith keeps me going. Faith that I will have a job when I clock in for the day. Faith that the world has not fallen apart since I went to sleep. Faith that my kids ad my wife are going to be in good health today so that I don’t need to worry.

But all of those things depend on Someone else. I need faith in Jesus to make sure all of theses things happen, and especially if they do not. When Job penned these words, he had lost everything. He had nothing. His kids had died. His possessions were destroyed or stolen. His wife lost her respect for him. He sat in an ash pile, covered in painful burning sores. He was miserable. And yet, he had faith in God. Even on his worst days, he knew he needed God.

What keeps you going? I pray that for you, it is faith that God holds your present and your future in His hands.

God bless you today!
