Last summer, our campus fellowship organised a Bible quiz based on the book of Judges. I started to read it so I could learn the details for the trivia.
Soon I was telling myself it was for good reason that this book wasn’t “popular”, as it seems quite messed up.
Someone told me they had stumbled on a great new discipline strategy for their children. When this person caught their child doing something wrong, the child was stopped. The parent would tell them, “That’s not who you are!”
In one sense, that's true.
When I was in my 20s, I had my life planned out: to be a successful business person, musician, and church servant before the age 25, by which time I’d also be married.
Twenty-five came and went, and I hadn’t achieved any of those goals.
Faith is the foundation for building a relationship with God. It is the confidence and hope that God is working even when you cannot see it. Faith means trusting in God’s love and kindness, that He will deliver on His promises, and lead you to what’s best for you. Faith is more than hoping for something better . . . faith is belief with conviction that God is watching over you, and with you in pain and worry. Faith in God strengthens you when you’re down, gives you hope when you’re suffering, and guidance when you’re lost. Read these faith articles about Christians learning to trust God more, and growing in their faith.
