A lot of Christians get discouraged because they feel they are never good enough. Satan tells us we are not worthy of God’s love and that we could do nothing to please Him, so why even try? But our relationship with God is not based on what we do, but WHO God is. When we put our faith in Jesus, we declare we believe He is the Son of God who died for our sins and rose again three days later. His death made us right with God. (2 Corinthians 5:21). So, our relationship with God is not based on our performance, but on what Jesus did.
What is Faith?
Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” So often, we only believe what we see, but God wants us to have faith that He is working behind the scenes. Just because we don’t see anything happening doesn’t mean that God isn’t at work.
In John 20:28, Thomas said to Jesus, “My Lord and my God!” Then Jesus told him in verse 29, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” So even though Thomas saw the resurrected Jesus with his own eyes, Jesus still blessed those who hadn’t seen Him but had believed.
The just shall live by faith (Romans 1:17). This means that our relationship with God is not based on what we do, but on WHO HE IS. We need to purpose in our hearts to keep our relationship with God first. When we make Him our number one priority, everything else falls into place.
If you feel you are never good enough or you can do nothing right, remember that your relationship with God is not based on your performance, but on Jesus. Have faith that even when you don’t see anything happening, God is still at work behind the scenes. Keep Him as your number one priority and watch as everything else falls into place.
Common Questions About Faith in God
