Biblical faith is the confident conviction that God will do what He has promised. But what happens when we waver between our own thoughts and those of our Lord? How do we recover when our own feelings and our circumstances crowd out our faith in Him?
Faith is essential because it’s required for our salvation. However, even after accepting Christ, believers are to continue living by faith. Some of us may have great faith while others have only a little. But we can also be characterized by wavering faith—up one day, down the next. Genuine faith is the confident conviction that God will do what He promised. However, if we take our eyes off Him and start looking at our circumstances, our confidence in Him could start to wobble. We will all experience situations like this because the Lord tests our faith in order to make it stronger.
