Whenever I think about how I ended the year 2016 and started the year 2017 in so much physical pain, I can’t help to thank God for His love and protection over my life.
Getting to know God more made me realise that being a Christian is by faith. Believing that there is a supreme God somewhere is by faith. I overcame the pain by faith.
Everything we do as Christians has to be done in faith. When I say faith, I am talking about the Biblical faith… I am talking about the faith Hebrews 11 verses one to the end talks about. Let me share with you a couple of the verses:
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it, he being dead yet speaketh.
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed and was delivered of a child when she was past age because she judged him faithful who had promised.
By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
By faith, the walls of Jericho fell down after they were compassed about seven days
This chapter of the Bible gives me so much hope that indeed I serve a living God. Everything that concerns us as Christians should be done in faith for without faith it is impossible to please God.
