Faith in God Regardless of Answers from God

faith in God

Faith in God and His Word must be able to stand independently from anything else in your life including the answers you may or may not receive in prayer.

Are you ready to stand in Faith if you never get another Prayer Answered?

I am so blessed to have a son as affectionate and unashamed to show his love and affection as Jordan. Jordan is a very strong willed child. At age 12 he feels that each member of our family should be treated with equality with no exception.

Make your faith in God your hallmark knowing in your heart that even if you never get another prayer answered, your faith in your Heavenly Father will remain unshakable forever.

As a parent I try my best to accommodate his way of thinking but there are times when equality must fly out the window. In the past, Jordan has vehemently protested when things such as the division of labor within our home seemed a little unfair (i.e., he doesn’t want to do his chores).

As in any other family dealing with the emotions of a pre-teen, tensions can arise from time to time in our home. But no matter the issue we’re dealing with and no matter how harsh the punishment that is handed down, Jordan has amnesia when it comes to his love for us.

There have been many times when Jordan has had privileges taken away for one reason or another. In his protest, he has even been known to throw a tantrum or two.

Sam and I jokingly call him Frankenstein because throughout the day you can find him walking around the house with arms outstretched looking for somebody to hug.

Jordan has the mental and emotional capacity to dismiss the discipline we dish out to him and love us regardless of the disappointments from the loss of privileges or anything else Sam and I use to discipline him.

Faith in God Stands Alone

In my travels I have the opportunity to talk to a lot of people. I’ve spoken to quite a few people who are estranged from God over something that did or did not happen in their lives or in the lives of a loved one.

In my opinion, to hang our faith in God on a situation or circumstance and have the outcome of that situation or circumstance dictate the health of our faith in God is a major error.

God is God. No one knows why He does or doesn’t do the things He does in our lives. The bottom line is that either you love Him or you don’t. Either you have faith in God or you don’t.

What is your Faith in God Dependent upon?

What can separate you from your faith in God? What will cause your faith in God to fail? Our God is above any and all circumstances. He loves us. Trust that. Place your faith in God no matter where you find yourself in life. Place you faith in God no matter what circumstance you find yourself in.

If your faith is hanging on answered prayer or anything other than the fact that God is God, correct your way of thinking immediately.

Make your faith in God your hallmark knowing in your heart that even if you never get another prayer answered, your faith in your Heavenly Father will remain unshakable forever.
