Faith

Faith is resting secure in the knowledge that our God is more than willing to keep us from falling. He is utterly trustworthy to perform all that he says He will. To seek to know the outcome by way of spiritual methods such as horoscopes, fortune tellers, or any other method that employs a supernatural element, is strictly forbidden in the scriptures. “Putting out a fleece” or giving God an ultimatum, is tempting the lord your God. Continually asking Him for confirmation or having to “really know that it was God,” demonstrates a lack of faith in the almighty. Throughout the scriptures we are encouraged to hear His voice and act accordingly. There’s an uncertainty about it that causes us to rely on His divine nature. If we had it all buttoned down, it wouldn’t require faith. We would be walking by sight, and that’s not faith at all.
I find that meditating on God’s word encourages faith to rise up in me.

Romans 10:8
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim)

Romans 10:17
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
