Believing God’s promises necessitates first knowing God. Our experience of the Father comes through daily prayer, reading the Word and trust. Jesus taught that unwavering faith would be rewarded with heavenly answers. But when doubt comes our way, the Holy Spirit will help build our faith in the Father.
Gen. 13:14-18; Gen. 15:1-6; Ps. 27:4-8; Luke 10:38-42; 2 Cor. 3:18; 1 John 3:2-3;
Ps. 52:8-9; Matt. 8:23-27; Mark 9:17-30; Mark 11:22-24; Luke 17:3-6; Rom. 4:18-24.
How much time do you spend daily experiencing God through personal intercourse with Him? Do you struggle with doubt? If so, what do your doubts reveal about your knowledge of the Father?
Father, give me eyes and ears to encounter You personally. Make me hungry for You and not just Your fulfilled promises. Please forgive my lack of faith, and help me grow in You so my faith in Your promises will also increase. Amen.
