Because even when we are faithless, He remains faithful. [2 Timothy 2:13]. I’ve learned through my journey, that my faith is based on His grace and not my feelings. He’s the anchor that never lets go even when we do. His strength is made perfect in our weakness. [2 Corinthians 12:9].
The Bible calls us to unwavering faith, in knowing & believing that He who has promised is faithful. [Hebrews 10:23]. Faith is truly an important and actually the most vital part of our walk because without faith, it is impossible to please God. [Hebrews 11:6]. But what about the moments of hopelessness? What about the moments of unbelief? What about the moments of weakness? Does this mean we suddenly become unlovable? Does this mean we become unworthy? Definitely not! What this means is that we keep on going. Those feelings don’t and shouldn’t give you any reason to give up, even when you feel like it. Those feelings however, give us every reason to seek more of God, to remember who He is. They give us more reason to keep our eyes steadfast on Him, more reason to come to a place of knowing that the perfect author of your faith will never let you stumble.
In Isaiah 41:13 God says; “For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” This promise really puts everything in perspective for me because it reminds me that my flesh does and will fail, but God is and remains the strenght of my heart and my portion forever. Flesh can also be seen as our feelings. Feeling sad, feeling defeated, feeling discouraged, it is all part of the works of your flesh, but we are not defined by that but by the one who has set us free through His death.
So today if you feel faithlessness and doubt stirring up inside of you, don’t condemn yourself but remind yourself that your flesh is weak, but your God is indeed stronger. Therefore, remember that you can hold on to Him for strength because He is the anchor that never stops holding on to you. It is not about your grip at times, but about the branch that holds you; the perfect author of your faith.✨
