When the waves are soaring to the clouds it crashes down pummeling our helpless soul. The rain keeps pelting down onto our bodies as we are stuck out on the boat... the storm is at it's maximum strength. We are desperate for just a ray of sunshine. It's our weakest hour and we are brought to our knees pleading for the darkness to end- we are told to keep the faith. Praise God for what you are going through because He will save us from our troubles. Psalms 138:7 NLT says,
Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me from the anger of my enemies. You reach out your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me.
When I handed my life over to our savior it was a game changer. There wasn't a doubt in my mind that no matter what I was handed, God would pull me through. Faith is simple. It's believing and knowing that God is our creator, Jesus Christ died for our sins and He sent the Holy Spirit down to guide us along our journey. Faith is the desire to keep love in our hearts just as Jesus loves us. Faith is leaning on our Lord for absolutely everything we do. Faith is serving God and seeking his will for us. It's that purpose that makes our life have meaning. So, when I tell someone, "keep the faith," it's not just a phrase I say to pacify them. It's filled with meaning, especially for those who may not have built a strong foundation with God yet. So my friends, if you find yourself in the middle of a vengeful storm, Keep the faith, because as Psalms 138:7 promises us, "He will save us from our troubles."
