Where Is My Faith?

There are times when believers feel as if they are standing completely alone. It feels like God is nowhere near to steady their wobbly knees. They hear creaking noises above their heads, as if everything is about to cave in on them. The floor looks as if it might give way at any moment, and the walls do not bring much comfort as the winds rise to a tornadic pitch. “Where is my faith?” The questioning begins.

Scripture tells us, “He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this Word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain” (Hebrews 12:26-27, KJV). While there is a broader application to this passage, we can take away one on a more personal level. Ironically, in order for us to stand firm in the Faith, the Lord has to shake out everything we put our trust in that is not connected to Him. Truthfully, there is only One place to put our faith, and that is in Him. It is only then that He is free to let His Faith flow though us, so we may walk by His Faith and not ours. When He does the impossible at the last possible moment, our confidence shifts. Meaning, we move from being self-confident to being confident in the One Who lives in us. Until a person puts all his confidence in God, he will never have true confidence. When it appears that God is missing in action, we have to remind ourselves that He is working behind the scenes.

When we stand or learn to stand alone, as it were, we are actually standing for others as well. While the faith of Jesus does strengthen us, it also strengthens others. In fact, the primary objective is to bless others. Just as those who triumph in hardship through Christ Jesus encourage us, others are encouraged by our victories as well. What does that mean? It means we never stand alone in the truest sense of the word. How many have you prayed for who has been going through the stuff? More than likely, there are unseen others standing with you in prayer. There is One Who most definitely stands with you. How else do you think you stand in rough times?
