What is 'faith' to you personally?
Are we viewing 'faith' the right way?
Some people belive that if you have great faith, you won't get sick or suffer from terminal diseases and if you suffer, it might indicate that you might have sinned against God, or because of your little faith. Have you ever listened to people commenting like this, they assumed those people are the worst sinful people or those people are simply lack of faith.
Many of us might see 'faith' as our own prideful possession, that we own faith, everything happens depending on faith. Indeed, Bible told us that faith is a gift itself, we have faith because God has graciously given it to us. We do not own faith, it is a gift from God.
Do people still suffer with their great faith? What do you think?
Imagine if having a great faith can avoid troubles, or faith can get us out of trouble, people all around the world will be flooding to church, because faith has become a shield to them for avoiding troubles. But what is the real 'faith' mentioning in the Bible? 'Faith' helps us to go through stuffs - whether the good or bad. God promised us that He will be with us in all our troubles. By saying this, God assures us that trouble will come to us, we are not those that can escape from troubles BUT by the grace of God, and by the presence of God among us, we can go through those troubles for He is ever with us.
'Faith' is the gift of God, that as we fix our eyes on the one WHO KNOWS all things, we can have the strength to go through anything. 'Faith' is not a guarantee that nothing will come to us, 'Faith' is helping and strengthening us to know that God will be with us in whatever situations we are in.
Don't think faith the other way ....God gives rain to the good and bad, God gives food to the good and also the bad. God is a fair God.....If we say that people suffer bad because of their lack of faith, we are being so prideful and we don't really understand what faith is.
May we have the right concept of what faith really is and so that we can be truly thankful to God's gift to us, amen.
