We've Come This Far By Faith

Chances are you've never thought about the fact that GOD has invested in you. Now, if you invest in something, you're going to do the best you can to keep that thing alive, well and flourishing. If you plant a garden, you've invested in those seed and you're not going to just throw them out there to fend for themselves. You're going to tend to that garden, water and nourish that garden until it brings forth the fruit at harvest.

GOD has begun this work in us, GOD has planted the seed and according the words of the Apostle Paul to the church at Phillipi, GOD will perform this work all the way to the end. Paul urged the church to be confident is that very thing.

Those words, centuries later, are still urging us to be confident in that very thing.

Don't give up in the face of trials and difficulties. GOD has faith in you and HE has invested much in you! HE is your strongest supporter. 

Hebrews 13:5 reminds us "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for HE hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."

We tend to base our faith on our circumstances and the way we feel. Feelings have nothing to do with faith. This is what robs us of our joy and keeps us looking down instead of up .

Hang in there and be confident that HE will see you through it all. Things are only unbearable when we forget to let HIM bear them. It's, it's vital....that we go to HIM daily and place it all at HIS feet, then walk away and leave it there.
Some of you will remember this old song.

Donnie McClurkin & CeCe Winans

"We've come this far by faith
Leaning on the LORD
Trusting in HIS Holy WORD
HE's never failed me yet.

Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh
Can't turn around
We've come this far by faith"

So, why give up now? HE is faithful until the end!

Blessings from Patti's Place to your place! Have a great week and please remember that you are never alone!
