True Faith Is Having Complete Confidence In Christ

Author : Rhonda Jones


When we put our trust in our Lord Jesus Christ and obey His commandments we are bound to achieve great and marvelous things in Christ.

Many years ago after a basketball game, I went back home confused and very disappointed. I said to my friend, "I cannot figure out why we have not won this game - I had so much faith that we are going to win!"

It is only now that I have come to realize that back then, I did not know what faith was all about.

Faith is not a show or a mere wish. True faith is complete confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ that makes us follow His footsteps. (Hebrew 11:1)

In the book of Daniel, I am reminded of Shadrach, Meshack and Abed-nego who refused to worship the golden image created by King Nebuchadnezzar. Because of their stand in God, they were thrown in a furnace of fierce fire.

In faith, they believed that their God could deliver them. They demonstrated every element that is to be applied in faith and they came out without a single burn. They trusted in God even if things would not have turned as they had expected.

Faith in Jesus Christ calls for total reliance on Him even when some things do not make sense to us. The trio knew they could trust in Him because they understood His nature, which does not change. They understood that God is in control of everything in heaven and on the earth.

God has given us an opportunity to choose and decide. Sometimes we are bound to be tested and he again assures us in 1 Cor 10:13 that he will never let us be tempted beyond what we can take. All in all, after the great challenges that we must all undergo, we can be victory and emerge as stronger men and women of God. We never need to go looking for trials and tribulations, they will find us, but when faced with them, our Heavenly father gives us strength to overcome.

In 2 Cor 12:9 -10, Paul was assured by the savior that his grace is sufficient and that his strength is made perfect in weakness and his response was just amazing. He said, I take pleasure in my infirmities, in accusations, in necessities, in persecutions, in distress for the sake of Christ. He realized that during his very weakest moment it is when he became very strong. No strong in his own might, but strong in the Lord, allowing the Holy Spirit to empower and live in him.

When we trust in God he is more than willing to provide help when we desperately needed. It doesn't matter how challenging the situation is. This gives God's spirit room to live in our heart so that he can constantly talk to us and lead us in the right direction.

Great and motivating faith is based in trusting the Lord Jesus Christ and His ever willing desire to meet our needs. For surely he blesses and prospers only those who fully trust in him. Dan. 3:15
