I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. – C. S. Lewis

True hope requires a firm foundation. Without our belief in the character of God and our belief in the character with him – as our foundation, this is our foundation when everything else is shaken.

As the Apostle Paul puts it, “we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”

When we find ourselves suffering through hard times, we take God at his Word and believe that he is still in control, with a specific purpose in mind. So, we keep going, relying on him. As we keep going, hour to hour, day to day, week to week, we become stronger. As we get stronger, we believe in God’s goodness, more than our circumstances. We learn to believe in God’s promises. All of us have been given a measure of faith. It is our responsibility to use it. The scriptures teach us that even a small amount of faith can produce miraculous events. What are you doing with the faith that you have been given?

Too many people choose not to use their faith. They look at the problems of their past and they base their future on what they see in the rear-view mirror. For some of you things have been tough.

When we believe, our impossibilities become possible. Faith is the key that unlocks the door to God’s active power in our lives. Faith is the power in the moment. What is faith? Faith is believing that God can do more than you imagine.

Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. Hebrews 11:1
