Day 1: Faith is walking with conviction and certainty


This simple but powerful definition helps us to rethink our daily walk and the decisions that we make. When we have the conviction and certainty that God is with us, that we will not lack anything, that he will always be with us, life makes sense and we relax--we feel safe and full of trust. On the other hand, if we look at life without the conviction and certainty that God is with us, life is filled with uncertainty, and everything becomes difficult--our gaze returns to fear and insecurity. Because of this, faith is the antidote to every fear of life. Even if in the moment you can only see the problems and circumstances, don’t lose faith in God and in what he has promised you. God has a purpose for your life, and to walk with Jesus is to walk toward that purpose. Walk with faith!
