General Election - Education

As a preacher’s kid, I grew up hearing and reading about faith. As an adult I’ve come to know and experience what faith is and does. FAITH: loyalty, belief and trust in God. I am a fan of and when I typed “trust” I noticed the derivatives were, “trustability”, “trustable”, “truster”, “trustingly”, “trustingness”.

Nothing came up for “trusted”. It may very well be a word, but not acknowledged by Webster. My point, “trust” is never past tense. It’s not something you did once and it didn’t work out for you. A friend once said to me, “to say you’ve trusted is to say life got stuck in a previous experience of failure or hurt.” As believers its never a thing of the past, it’s our now, our life. It’s the fundamental fact of our existence.

“But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him.” Hebrews 11:6 Amp.

I, like so many others have found myself to the point of frustration and really wanting to be enlightened when it came to the subject of faith. I’d ask, What am I doing wrong?, What am I not getting? Why is my life not yielding certain results? There have been numerous Biblical testimonies of faith set before us to show us that if we get in the habit of believing (without options, without a plan b) our lives can yield the same results if not better. They stood firm, in the state of mind in which they had un-shakeable confidence and faith in God.
