Some days we can move past our fears. Casting off all the lies the world throws our way, and other days it’s more difficult than others.
Today I guess has been an easier day to walk with my eyes fixed on Jesus. There has been less doubt than the other days, and I am resting in knowing that every day is a gift.
Often the biggest doubts we can have is whether or not Jesus is Who He says He is, and are we truly saved?
I guess for me it can be easy to allow the world to influence my thoughts and perspective rather than clinging to my beliefs.
The core of our faith is belief. In John 10:38 Jesus says to believe in the evidence of His works even if we doubt Him.
Our beliefs direct our faithfulness and our actions.
So when the future looks dim and foggy, and we are doubting everything we believe, we need to let the evidence of what Jesus has already done in our life be what drives our faith and our next steps.
The Lord knows this life is not always going to be easy, but he has given us plenty of GOOD things to prove who He is and lots of good things to believe IN!

Our faith begins with what we know and believe about God. Our faith will carry us how far we are willing to let it take us. Faith is a choice and we need to begin by choosing to believe in Jesus and His power to move mountains, heal the sick, and save us from all our sins through His sacrifice on the cross.
