Your faith in the LORD Jesus is under attack. Often through “thoughts,” against the character of God, His trustworthiness, His Word. Faith is developed, displayed, in and on the anvil of life. Abraham demonstrated his faith in God, which was a process, but a conclusion he came to, learned over various times, trials that He can be trusted. The battle for the choice of faith, is daily for us all. Whom or what will we believe? Whose word is to be trusted? Why is it so important? Because faith pleases God. {Heb 11:6}. Consider the testimony concerning Abraham. “Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.  Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,  being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised.”- {Rom 4:19-21}. Faith is a choice. Choose Him, to believe He is trustworthy, in doing so He is glorified. So the attack on your faith is an opportunity to grow and glorify Him, unbelief, is an attack on His character and His glory! ”

In these verses we see Four things that result from choosing, and it is a choice to trust Him.

  • Faith Grows
  • Faith Glorifies God
  • Faith believes in the Promises of God, His Power of God to accomplish His goals
  • Faith’s Testimony – Is to God.

These four reasons show why the evil one opposes YOUR faith in God, for it causes God’s people to mature and focus and rest on Him. It glorifies Him. It believes His promises. He is able, capable to do as He pleases. Faith in Him pleases Him. Your faith is under attack tempting to seek to turn you away from maturing, glorifying Him, believing His Promises, resting in His power, testifying of God to others! Faith’s object is Him! Where is your focus? Hide His Word, meditate on it, apply it and you will grow, glorify, believe His Promise, testify of Him.

Faith in God Focus’s on Him and Glorifies Him!
