 “Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” – John 11:40

We are always told to have faith and to trust God. In certain situations, that is easier said than done. We sometimes think things will be easier if we take it into our own hands. Nobody ever said having faith would be easy, but it will be worth it and here is why.

“For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.” – John 6:33-35

We are all trying to find our purpose in life. We are all looking for fulfilment. We want to know what is best for our lives and often do not know how to find those answers. Here is why we should stay hungry for God and always keep his promises in mind.

 “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” – Isaiah 40:28-31

“I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.” – Revelation 3:8

God often closes doors and we sometimes do not know why. We try so hard, with every ounce of our being to keep those doors open, but he slams them shut anyway. In these times we need to really trust God. We need to know that he has a reason for saying no.

 “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people” – Ephesians 6:18

As Christians, we are always seeing prayer as a requirement, Praying is what we do to stay connected to God. We feel like it is something we have to do and because f that we go on autopilot, sending empty prayers up to heaven that have no meaning. Instead, we should start praying intentionally and as a result, we will see our lives start to change for the better.

The Bible is like our guide. It is God’s word that we should live by to live a fruitful life. We are to spread his love and live by his word. However, there are times when we forget his truth and disregard what he says.

“Look to the Lord and His strength; seek his face always.” – 1 Chronicles 16:11

For a good portion of my life I believed that God was only reserved for reading the Bible and church. I thought that that was the only place where you would be table to talk to Him, to hear Him and gain a relationship. High-school me thought church and the Bible were boring and just another thing to add to my day.

“When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me.” – Psalm 138:3

Everyone has those moments where they want to fit in with the crowd. We want to be like our peers and do what they are doing. We want to have the same clothes, the same hair, the same cars. We are often afraid of being different and being our own person, instead of being afraid and trying to fit in, we should ask God to help us to be bold, and to stand out.

 “Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” – Psalm 90:14

Does your morning routine set the stage for how your day will be? Do little changes such as lack of sleep or a bad dream deeply affect the pace of your day? I know it does for me. If I don’t get enough sleep or sleep in for too long, it throws off my game and my day feels off.
