Hebrews 11:6 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.
Keep the faith!
As an ordained Pastor, two of my main tasks are to 1. Encourage my local, regional and international following to keep their trust in GOD and not lose faith and 2. Inspire my following to ALWAYS STAY POSITIVE. Of course, my job as a Pastor also goes beyond those two things to counseling, christening, filling passport forms, writing recommendation letters, preaching, hosting community events, funerals and so on. I don't have my marriage licence as yet, in the very near future once it is the will of God.
As I've dealt with dozens of people over the years, I have come across a common problem. When folks are going through tough times, they want to GIVE UP ON LIFE. I always seek to remind my clients and members that once you keep your trust in GOD, tough times don't last, TOUGH people do once they do not lose FAITH.
The book of Hebrews is believed to have been also written by the Apostle Paul, but this has been debated by theologians over the years. In Hebrews 11, there is a very long history recounting how God came through for his people as THEY KEPT THE FAITH and never gave up. What is faith one may ask? It is answered in Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen
As you DREAM or HOPE for something you have not yet received, but yet BELIEVE that you will get it in the future, THIS IS FAITH. You cannot keep the FAITH when you hang around NEGATIVE people and DOUBTERS. They will cause you to lose faith. Therefore, always WATCH your company and watch who you tell your dreams.
In closing, may I remind you. None of us can serve GOD without FAITH. It is impossible! Faith requires us to continue HOPING IN GOD that He will hear, help and deliver. Hebrews 11:6 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.
