There are times when we feel like we are running out of faith. When you have been praying and nothing seems to change. You have patiently waited on the Lord for something but it seems like He has forgotten. When you feel like you are running out of faith and like you are about to give up on believing, there is a reason why you can rest assured that your faith will not fail. Jesus prayed for Simon Peter so that Peter’s faith would not fail. God hears and answers prayers. I believe that today Jesus prays the same prayer for each of His followers when He sees a test ahead of us that might cause our faith to fail. Any time you feel like your faith is about to run out, find encouragement in knowing that Jesus has prayed that your faith will not fail. Your faith will not fail.
Luke 22:32 “But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail.” – Jesus (NIV)
Do you ever feel like you want to have more faith? That if only you had more faith then things would be different? One sure way to increase your faith is to focus on the Lord. Jesus said that faith the size of a mustard seed is all we need to move mountains. God is great and mighty and what we need is faith the size of a mustard seed in our great God. When you focus on how great God is, that He can do anything and that He can change your situation in a moment, then your faith will increase without you even noticing.
Matthew 17:20 “…if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (NIV)
Today I want to encourage you and to let you know that your faith will not fail. Keep your focus on the Lord.
God bless you.
