Daily Devotional: September 10th
The Remedy For Uncertainty
He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. Matthew 8:26
Sometimes like Jesus' disciples, we feel threatened by the storms of life. During these moments, when our hearts are flooded with uncertainty; that God is not simply near. He is here.Have you ever felt your faith in God slipping away? If so, you are in good company. Even the most faithful Christians are, at times, beset by occasional bouts of discouragement and doubt. But even when you feel far removed from God, God never leaves your side.He is always with you, always willing to calm the storms of life. When you sincerely seek his presence--and when you genuinely seek to establish a deeper, more meaningful relationship with his Son--God will calm your fears, answer your prayers, and restore your soul. Struggling with God over the issues of life doesn't show a lack of faith--that is faith.
Better a little with fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil. Proverbs 15:16
