~ 1 Timothy 4:12 Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example in speech, life, love, faith, and in purity! ~

What is faith? Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (NIV)”! I could not have said it better myself! Each day so far has been the same idea, so you can guess where this is heading! 🙂 We are to set an example through our faith… When things get tough, do you have faith? It is easy to have faith when life is all peachy and everything is great, but what about when things get tough? I think think that Job is a wonderful example of faith. When he had basically lost everything he still had faith. Think about it… If you had lost your home, job, family, friends, and your own health would you still believe that God had a perfect plan and wanted the best for you? My biggest thing through out this week is to get you to do a heart check… When is it hardest for you to trust God? Give those times to Him! He wants them!! He promises to never leave you (Hebrews 13:5b I will never leave you nor forsake you.)! Hold fast to that promise guys! Pretty much everything in this world can leave and may possibly do so…but God promises to NEVER leave you! I’m not sure about you, but that sends chills up my spine! I’m going to leave with a quote. I’m not sure who said it, but it says, “Quit telling God how big your storm is and start telling the storm how big your God is!”! I’m praying that you will not only have faith as you walk through out this life, but that you will set an example by how much faith you do have!
