Don’t we feel silly when we worry about something that never comes true. God is so faithful. Why do I continue to question Him?
So many times I’ve pouted.
So many times I’ve doubted.
So many times I’ve complained.
So many times I’ve been disappointed.
I am so UNfaithful. And I get so discouraged thinking: I’ll never have enough faith. I will never be a woman of faith.
True Faith depends not at all upon itself nor upon its own system of piety, but rather upon the Lord alone and his faithfulness. It knows that our faith in God is only a reflection of God’s faith in us. For our father does not believe in us, He fathead us into existence in the first place and He continues day by day “sustaining all things by His powerful word.” Heb. 1:3 To have faith is to have trust in the faithfulness of God, knowing that faithfulness is first and foremost not a human but a divine attribute. – Mike Mason
Good thing my faith is not dependent on me. My faithfulness is not in the works I do or the actions I take – but the heart attitude. No, I am not being faithful when I pout, doubt, or despair. But my over-all “faithfulness” doesn’t depend upon that. When I live a life of disbelief and do not trust my God, I can immediately repent and once again GOD makes me faithful.
I am not faithful because of my own works. I am faithful because of God’s work – in me. He makes me faithful. Once again, I can abide in Him and rest. I can rest in knowing that He will give me the faith that I need!
It gives me a sense of rest knowing that I don’t have to muster up enough faith. My faith can be confident not because of me, but because of Him. He is enough. His faith is enough. God is enough. I can have faith that He will provide the faith, not me.
