Let Your Faith Arise.
As we step into another month, there's this phrase that's been ringing in my mind:
"Let faith arise."
I don't know about you, but many of us are bruised and wounded from fighting against the rapid changes happening in our world over the last few years. Perhaps you're not up against physical enemies, but against internal struggles — doubts, fears, grief, or heartaches. Maybe there are also external challenges that make you question your purpose, your worth, or even your faith.
In the midst of survival, it's easy to lose sight and faith. But may the truth in Psalm 37:3 bring us hope today — "Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate (feed on His) faithfulness."
Start by remembering God's faithfulness. Recall the countless times He has provided, come through, and given you victory. Remember that in some of the darkest moments, your relationship with God grew stronger.
I know it's hard. But friends, let faith arise. Lift up your head. Lift up your voice. Let God be your strength and pray that He will arise in your circumstances. When God rises, His enemies scatter, doors open, and miracles happen.
Don't give up. Don't dwell in the valley and live with resignation. Lay down your burdens, not because you understand it all, but because you remember who God is — a faithful, promise-keeping Father.
Life isn't just about getting by; it's about living fully, abundantly, and faithfully.
