Day 5 – Pep Talk: Trusting God Brings More Joy
We have just TWO more days to go to complete our FIRST week of establishing a more consistent (DAILY) Bible reading schedule. Even if you’ve dropped the ball along the way, let’s just pick it back up and keep going! You can do this!
*Join us in our 21 Day Bible Reading Challenge at any time!
Could it be that we are complicating life…and failing to let our faith grow on a regular basis?
One thing that quickly robs of us of JOY is letting fear prevail during times of trouble. Of course, READING our Bible will daily remind us of God’s mighty power and about all His great wonders He’s done in times past.
We still serve the SAME God that parted the Red Sea for the Israelites! We still serve the SAME God that shut the mouths of the lions when Daniel was in the lion’s den. We still serve the SAME God that used David’s little stone to bring down the big giant!
God has no limitations in His power – So why aren’t we trusting Him more!?!
To grow our faith is as easy as watering a plant daily! READ the Word of God today!
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 (KJV)
The song Simply Trusting Everyday reminds us to simply trust!
Simply trusting every day;
Trusting through a stormy way;
Even when my faith is small,
Trusting Jesus, that is all.
