“Faith, at times is all i feel i have had.” This statement from last week has been on my mind all week. As i have been pondering the word that i believe to be my focus for the year, “Foundation”. Our Faith in Jesus is primary, its essential, it is the foundation. Each time i have faced a mountain in my life, my faith that Jesus would see me through is at times the only hope i had.
Each new battle has always brought me to this passage in Romans:
Romans 5:1-5 (NKJV)
“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”
Tribulations in life, mountains if you will, lead us to perseverance, when our faith is in Jesus. Perseverance, builds godly character, when our faith is in Jesus. Godly character, results in hope and hope does not disappoint when Jesus is the foundation of that Hope for God’s love is poured out on those that put their faith in Him by way of the Holy Spirit.
May your foundation always be Jesus.
You are Loved,
