Where to Find Faith in Changing Times

faith in changing times

Our world has changed dramatically over the past few months—yet God has not changed, and He wants us to stand strong in our faith.

Hebrews 11:1 explains, Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. We have the eternal covenant made with the blood of Christ. When we have that substance and that evidence, we can go through anything because He is with us.

Where do we get that faith? It’s simple: Looking unto Jesus, the author, and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2). We don’t drum it up or pray it down. Faith is given to us by God, and He gives it freely. Let Jesus be your faith. If we have Jesus, we have all the faith we need—and we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. When we hold onto Him, we can overcome any obstacle.

I remember when we started CBN Asia in the Philippines. For seven months, we never had enough money for payroll the day before it was due. Each time we’d gather to pray, and each time God would do a miracle, providing the funds within 24 hours.

When we looked at ourselves, we realized we couldn’t make it. Yet when we put Him first and focused on winning souls for His kingdom, God did exceedingly above all we could ever ask or think.

When you look at the wind and waves, you start to sink. But when you fix your eyes on Jesus, you start to rise and you can walk on water. For He has promised us, “With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). God bless you!
