Lifetime Faith

God is doing some good things in the house. We are seeing evidence of a progressive miracle, and we are profoundly grateful for that. At the same time, there are so many individuals who are dealing with some extremely difficult personal and family issues of one type or another. It is tempting to be so burdened down by life’s worries that it affects our worship and results in our losing focus on God. We are familiar with the story of God’s parting the Red Sea in Exodus 14. Not only did it take a miracle for God to part the waters, but it also took a miracle for God to keep the waters back until 3 million people or so had time to cross. He Who begins a miracle will finish it. We claim that for the church and our lives. In your personal life, you may be confronted with the ultimate test of faith, the greatest test of all. The reason God wanted Israel to have this kind of faith was that they were about to face a journey through the wilderness. They needed a faith that would trust God no matter what, an unshakable faith that was settled once and for all. God is not looking just for faith that deals with one problem at a time. He is looking for a lifetime faith that trusts Him regardless. James said this faith does not doubt. And if we do waver in faith, he says, “Let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord” (1:7). Please pray for us regularly. We love you! Pastors Mark and Jennifer
