Scripture says, we can only believe and trust in God by faith.

What is faith?

Hebrews 11:1: “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”

Why are we enjoined to trust God by faith?

Colossians 1:16: “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.”

Numbers 23:19: “God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind.”

Isaiah 26:4: “Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.”

1 John 5:4: “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.”

Therefore:

Ephesians 6:16: “In all circumstances take up the shield of faith.”

1 Timothy 6:12: “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called.”

Joshua 1:9: “Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

2 Corinthians 13:5: “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves.”

Do I realize the importance of faith so I trust God in all circumstances of life?

What André Gourd started out as a daily message to his sons in 2019, has grown into daily messages to all who wish to receive them. While he didn’t have a clue he was to share these messages with the world, the Lord put on his heart in 2020 to do so. The purpose of his daily messages is to remind those of us who know Christ as Savior and Lord, that He is present in this world and in our lives. André desires to keep each one “Short and To The Point,” so you will take time to read them. They are NOT related to opinion. They simply “Point to Scripture.” He leaves us with a one sentence “Challenge thought” to help us live out our commitment to focus on Christ and live by His word.
