Maintaining Faith

Maintaining faith is a crucial aspect of our spiritual journey, especially when faced with doubts and uncertainties. Do you ever find yourself facing moments of doubt or uncertainty, where it feels like your faith is being put to the test? Trust me, we’ve all been there. But here’s the good news: you’re not alone, and there’s so much we can learn from the Bible to help us maintain our faith in those challenging times.

In the book of Joshua, we can find invaluable lessons that can strengthen our resolve and deepen our trust in God. Joshua’s incredible story is packed with lessons on how to keep our faith strong, no matter what obstacles come our way. 

Let’s dive into a couple of key takeaways from Joshua’s life that can encourage and guide us in maintaining unwavering faith:

Embracing Courageous Obedience

Imagine stepping into Joshua’s shoes and leading the Israelites into the promised land. Talk about pressure! But Joshua faced his fears head-on, showing unwavering obedience to God. He trusted in God’s promises and faithfully followed His commands. We can draw strength from Joshua’s example, realizing that when we align our lives with God’s Word, our faith grows stronger.

Remembering God's Faithfulness

And that extraordinary conquest of Jericho! Joshua made sure they never forgot God’s mighty works. We can do the same. When we reflect on God’s past faithfulness in our lives, our trust in His power to overcome challenges is renewed.

Seeking Divine Guidance

Joshua understood the importance of seeking God’s guidance in every decision. Whether it was navigating battles or dividing the land, he sought the Lord’s counsel. Likewise, maintaining our faith means relying on God’s wisdom. We can seek His guidance through heartfelt prayer and by immersing ourselves in His Word, knowing that He will lead us in the right direction.

So, My Friend, maintaining faith is a journey we’re all on together, just like the Israelites. We stumble, we grow, and we learn along the way.  Let’s keep walking this path of faith together, leaning on His promises and maintaining our steadfast devotion to Him.

This month, we’ll be learning more from Joshua and the Israelites about the consequences of not maintaining faith in God. We will also get to know the judges that succeeded him and how Samson’s faith fulfilled prophesy. 

I pray that something you read this month will encourage you to strengthen your faith. Remember, faith isn’t about having it all figured out; it’s about trusting in God even when life seems uncertain.
