Genuine Faith

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 nlt

Many people who think they have faith in God are actually dominated by fears and doubts—overwhelmed by the circumstances of their lives. Are you? What is it that makes you anxious today? Is there something you fear you’ll never achieve or receive?

Understand genuine faith means realizing God wants to provide His very best for you and will not let you miss it as you walk with Him (Hebrews 11:6). True, sometimes what He perceives as best for you is different from what you do. But take heart, the One who created you ultimately knows what will truly satisfy your soul—even better than you do.

So let go of whatever you fear you will never have or accomplish. He is faithful to provide. And if God does not give you what your heart presently desires, it is because He has something far better planned for you.

Lord, I trust You will provide Your very best for me. You are my delight. Thank You for fulfilling the deepest desires of my heart, amen.

In His presence... He reveals life at its very best.
