“Demonstrating Our Faith”
We wait in hope for the Lord’ He is our help and our shield.
May Your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in You.
Psalm 33:20, 22
How can others know about your RELATIONSHIP with the Lord God Almighty? Maybe by your WORDS, or ACTIONS, and maybe by your THOUGHTS that are conveyed through your WORDS and ACTIONS. This Psalm is one of my favorites, because it talks about God’s UNFAILING LOVE and His FAITHFULNESS to His Children.
This Psalm tells us that we SHOULD PRAISE HIM, because His WORD is TRUTHFUL and DEPENDABLE, and His Works are RIGHTEOUS and JUST. And His LOVE is UNFAILING towards those who belong to Him. Here are some ways that we can DEMONSTRATE our FAITH.
First, we can DEMONSTRATE our FAITH by our PERSERVERANCE, hanging on when times are ROUGH, NOT giving in, But WAITING and TRUSTING God to be our HELP and our SHIELD. DEPENDING on Him and NOTHING or NOBODY else to DELIVER us from our iniquities, which hinder us in our DAILY WALK with Him.
Secondly, we can DEMONSTRATE our FAITH by REJOICING in our HEARTS to the ONE, in whose Holy Name we CAN TRUST. The very one who forms the HEARTS of mankind, and considers EVERYTHING they do. We can TRUST Him to FULFILL His promises, and to complete His work of SALVATION.
Thirdly, we can DEMONSTRATE our FAITH by PRAYING that His UNFAILING LOVE, be upon us, for ALL of our days, as we put our FAITH and HOPE in Him.
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then your FAITH is in SOMEONE or SOMETHING else, other than the ALMIGHTY GOD. Can you TRUTHFULLY say, without ANY doubts that you can TRUST and HOPE in that SOMEONE or SOMETHING to DELIVER you from Hell with ALL of its HORRORS? If you believe they can, then WHO or WHAT will DELIVER them? NO ONE has the POWER over DEATH and HELL, but the ALMIGHTY GOD. And if you are DEPENDING on SOMEONE OR SOMETHING ELSE, you are DOOMED to AN ETERNITY in Hell, with NO WAY of ESCAPE, and the ONLY WAY for you to ESCAPE Hell, is to TURN AWAY FROM your sins, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and ESCAPE Hell and GAIN HEAVEN, and DEMONSTRATE your FAITH to others. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
