Today’s devotional is teaching us about Faith. We are told to have faith in Christ. However it is not just faith, but what your faith is in, is where the power comes from. We have to rest in the complete knowledge that Christ is the Son of God. He is our Savior, provider, protector, and King. That knowledge has power and believing that with no doubt shows the world you are a child of God. The fact that Christ bled and died on that cross is what made Him our Savior. He paid the price for our sins. Our actions or works, no matter how selfless they are, will never be worth anything, it is that we believe that God loved us enough that He wanted us to have an opportunity to reach Heaven, and knowing our sinful human nature, there had to be a sacrifice big enough to forgive all sins, of all mankind. What else could that be other than a sinless perfect being, who paid the heaviest punishment known to man. God created our world and only Him, could know how to give us an opportunity to reach a Heavenly existence with Him forever more. We can’t expect deliverance because of any ministers words, or good deed done with a giving heart. We must keep our eyes focused on only Him, and do not let that waiver. That is the only source of real power on this earth. Do you have a faith that keeps you calm, even in the worse times that life has to offer? It is only when we take our eyes off Him, that we begin to sink with no hope, because He is our only hope.
