Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
Daniel had unshakable faith. His belief in the LORD substained him when he was uprooted from his home, taken into captivity and sent to a foreign country. His faith gave him strength as he served under four different kings and faced many challenges (Daniel 1:1-20) Check it out!
Knowing GOD and trusting Him are the two key elements of deep faith.
Daniel, while in captivity, wanted to obey the Scriptures that he had hidden in his heart. So, when he was asked to eat food that was sacrificed to idols, he took a great risk by requesting other food. GOD then caused the officials to show him favor.
Like Daniel, we are to spend our lives learning and carrying out what pleases our heavenly FATHER and not the world!
“…that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.”
Barriers to unshakable faith include pride, self-concerns, arrogance and self-sufficiency!
Are any of these keeping you from becoming a person of strong faith? If so, then confess it and then turn toward the LORD!
IN YESHUA’s NAME, Amen.
With lots of prayers & love, Shalom!
