Having faith in God through difficult times

Having faith in God through difficult times

Landing on Moon:

In late 1960s Neil Armstrong landed on the moon and took the First step on the moon. How did he do it. It is because he had faith. You need faith to achieve anything in life. He took a step of faith.

You attend a job interview with faith. Here some only have faith in themselves. But if you have faith in god, it will ensure that you get the job. It is always important to pray and believe in god when you need something, achieve something in life.

When Hitler’s German army invaded Europe, America stood silent, but when the Japanese attacked the pearl harbor, America joined the fight with lots of faith and belief in their superior strength.When you take a flight to another country, you feel excited and somewhat fearful. Maybe this is your first trip out of your country. And you have never flown before. You have heard of many disasters. Plane crashes.

I personally faced a situation when on one winter, on my way back from London, England on a British Airways flight to Canada, we ran into a strong winter storm and the pilot was not able to land in Montreal. And after terrifying moments the pilot skillfully maneuvered the plane to a safe landing.

In another instance, during one of my short visits from Italy to England on a Ryan Air flight, the pilot started to struggle to land at the airport. And the plane was descending towards the runway. As it was about to land just inches away from the ground, the pilot made a sudden powerful upward trust. And the plane seared towards the sky
again.

Hours later when the rain subsided, he was able to land the plane safely. What I am trying to get at here, that in both occasions, God had me in the palms of his hands.

And sometimes, your plane gets high jacked. But you know God is in that situation. It says “because of one righteous man” God will rescue all in the plane or in any other disaster. What I would do in a situation like this is to kneel down and pray before the flight and believe for a safe and comfortable flight. And you will have one if you truly believed it. that God is in control.

You also must realize that even if you are not a believer in Christ, you have been given a brain and a body by God. So,when you do something with your own human faith, it will succeed if you put your mind and soul to it. But that extra “punch” you get when you pray and believe in God, for that to happen, is extraordinary and unbelievable.

In other words if you rely only on your human strength to do whatever task you wish, chances are you that could become a failure. In order to achieve anything in life and be happy and content, you need to believe in God and pray.

When you are unemployed, unable to get a job, pray. You will receive from strangers, food, money and sometimes even a job. You need to have faith and believe your God knows exactly what you are going through. It is because he cares for you.

You will not beg but receive favor from God. The new job would be a better and one that would take you to the top in that field. You will be happy. Your co-workers will respect you. You will have plenty of money in your hand and you will be at the top not the bottom.

I was on my way to work, on a snowy day. The highway was not fully cleared as it was early morning and the snow plows had not been fully utilized. There were many areas of the highway with snow still on it.

when I was on the highway, as I was reaching the end of my journey, I had to change lanes to exit. My speed was around 50 km. When started to change lanes, I hit a deep patch of snow.

Suddenly my car turned 360 degrees and I was facing some oncoming cars towards me. I cried “Jesus” To my amazement, all the cars had suddenly stopped and all of them waited patiently till I was able to turn my car around in the right direction. I was able to proceed to my work place without any more obstacles.

Here again, it shows how our God watches over us 24 hours a day, If not for him keeping a close eye on me I would have been dead by now.

Genesis 2:18

“Then the:e LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him”

.And if you are single, God will cause you to meet your soul mate and you will be for the rest of your life. You will have a happy and fulfilling relationship. You no longer have to be insecure and lonely.

Hebrews 11:6

” And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him”

This is very important if you need anything from God. You must believe in God (Jesus) 100 percent. Then you will over achieve.As God will turn everything in your favor.

How do you seek god. It is by reading the Bible, which is the word of God, daily, and praying, meditating on it. Ideally, one should pray for 1 to 3 hours a day.

How to hear from God:

***When you keep praying, ideally kneeling, for hours, your spirit will access the Holy Spirit, which is the spirit of God and you will hear God. And it will not be an audible voice but it will speak to your  own spirit, and you will know it is God.

It says it will sound like “rushing waters” And sometimes some scriptures in the Bible will stand out to you. Some claim they have seen Jesus in their dreams. More likely they saw a vision as the bible says that Jesus will return one day and will be visible to all not to just one person.

Of course, the bible also says not to neglect the stranger who knocks on your door. As it could be angels in disguise dressed as beggars coming to your door step.

This reminds me of an incident. When I visited my brother years after I left my home country, his son, in his twenties, answered the door. He looked through the window and did not recognize me. And he was rude
thinking I was a stranger and demanded that I leave without even asking who I was. And later his appearance changed when I told him that I was his father’s younger brother.

I mentioned this here just to illustrate, how one must not ignore strangers or treat them indifferently. Even though I was not angel knocking at his door, one day it could very well be.

Matthew 18:16

” Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven “

In faith, you ask for anything in prayer believe that he heard you. And act accordingly. Never utter any negative words. What ever you confess on earth will be bound in heaven.

In other words if you confess with your mouth negatively about any task, anyone, anything the results also will be negative.

For example, you go for a job interview and you do extremely well and you know that you aced it, still when your parents ask how it went you say “oh not bad” or “it was alright” and God hears your negative words.
The result is you never get that job.

Never, never say anything negative to your spouse, children, co-worker or even to your boss. If you do your whole life will be full of disappointment. It will not be a victorious life as God intended it to be.

Do not blame God for your negativity. Contrary to some beliefs, the Bible is the word of God, and it is full of promise and Positive.

It tells you How to lead a successful, fruitful blessed life. You might ask how, it is No secret, just follow the scriptures. And you will
taste it.

Philippians 4:3

“I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.”

Yes God gives you strength to do anything in life. He gives you strength to excel in studies. To excel in sports, business.

He gives you physical strength, strength to bear pain, heart ache, disaster. Financial bankruptcy.

He takes you out of near impossible situations because he loves you and cares about you. He created you in his own image as the bible says.

Do you know he watches over you twenty fours, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty five days a year. He carries you in his palms.

It is a mighty God we serve. And knows when exactly he needs to come to your rescue. And when you believe and act on him he showers favors on you.

Conclusion :

In difficult times have faith in God.He will deliver you from all.

When you pray, you hope and believe something extraordinary will happen. And even though you can not see it happening, if you believe it will happen. You need to believe that he truly exists and need to earnestly seek him.

Whatever you ask in prayer you believe that you already have it. as whatever you ask will be heard in heaven and
according to your faith, God will answer it. Without faith it is impossible please God.

  1. I must confess that I’m really touched by these words of yours and I also believe in God as the omnipotent. This article has also renewed my faith in Christ again. I’ll never forget to put God first in everything that I do. Thanks for the undiluted word you’ve shared with us. It was really helpful and informative. Thanks

  2. I think even if you don’t believe in God you still must have faith in something. And the faith in something everyone has. They must have faith that they will get that job after the interview or faith that the plane they just got on will arrive safely at their destination. 

    1. Thank you.One must realize that you can not place faith in yourself or in the pilot of the plane.There is a “super” power in heavens, the almighty God, who holds us in the “palms” of his hands. You need to place your faith in Him.

  3. Im not going to lie after the year my wife, and I and our family had last year it really was hard to have any faith.  So much bad happened and no matter how much and how hard we prayed it seemed the bad stuff just kept happening.  I guess everything happens for a reason because life was getting pretty tough.However it feels like many of those prayers have finally started being heard because this year is going much better and many good things are happening.Thank you for putting these great words in this article.  It truly is honestly appreciated.Dale

  4. Having faith in God has been the best thing that has ever happened to me, looking back at my past when I was down and out, he still comes to my rescue. sometimes our faith is been tested by God to see how much we believe in him, this post has made me increase my trust and faith in God unconditionally. Indeed he is a faithful and covenant keeping God. Thanks for sharing this inspirational post, much appreciated 

  5. Thanks for this article,

    sometimes I’m so busy i even forget to pray. This article has helped me renew my faith in God and I’ll always remember to put him first in everything I do. Everybody has faith, it’s only a question of where we put our faith. Like putting on a light bulb, you wouldn’t do that if you didn’t believe it would come on. 

    Thanks once again.

    Warm regards
