A Reminder to Keep Your Faith…God Is a Refuge

 

Why is faith so important? Let’s see what the bible says.

Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

James 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

So today I encourage you to keep the faith, and always remember that your heavenly father has all power in heaven and on earth.
