One Thing 2/5/13
1Tim. 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
2Tim. 2:13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.
Living a life of faith can be a real fight sometimes. The warfare of reason, feelings, circumstances, and the words of doubts from others can make the battle to believe intense at times. You have to remember that Satan hates for us to walk in faith, and will do anything and everything to keep us from standing. I don’t know about you, but there are times when my faith is so weak that I don’t feel like I have faith at all. When I’m in those weak moments when I don’t think I can STAND in faith, I decide to REST in His faithfulness instead. When you just can’t believe, look away from your faith, and look to His faithfulness. It’s where you should have been looking all along. The KJV of 2Timothy 2:13 says it like this, “Even if we believe not, He abides faithful…” I like that.
