Faith is belief, but it goes further. It must be backed up by action—your action. It’s a decision you make to trust something or someone, and you follow by actions that prove your sincerity. Good questions to ask yourself about your faith are these: Am I placing my faith in the right place? Is the object or source of my faith reliable?
But God’s perfect timing isn’t limited to your future in heaven. His sovereign ability to act at just the right moment in your life today demonstrates His incredible love for you. Sometimes we recognize God’s miraculous intervention, but so often it goes unnoticed until we look back and see what God has done.
Are you discouraged about your present circumstances and fearful about the future? Does it feel like your day-to-day life is reduced to putting one foot in front of the other and trying to survive? Maybe you’re on the lookout for someone who cares and who can help you. What if I told you that I have a friend who fits that description—perfectly?
