There are many temptations that will discourage and distract you from your faith. Be on your guard. What we call common sense can cause a shortage of faith as can intellectual assertion. How do we explain prayer apart from a relationship with a loving God?
The strength of our faith will enable us in moments of concern and hold us through the valleys in our lives. It's really God who is holding us, not faith in itself. Our choice...His grace. Hallelujah!
James 1:12 (NIV)
12 Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
