Faith Says, “It’s going to be Alright”
Life can be tough at times, and without Faith in God it can be even tougher. Having Faith in Him means letting go of what we can’t control and “It makes us sure of what we hope for and gives us proof of what we cannot see” (Hebrews 11:1). Faith is trusting Him and believing that no matter what the struggle is, “It’s going to be alright.”
What did Noah do when the flood came? He trusted God and believed “everything was going to be alright” (Genesis 6:22).
When the nay sayers talked against Nehemiah, his boundless faith said, “It’s going to be alright” (Nehemiah 2:20).
Job was a man whose life was tested beyond imagination, yet his faith in God said, “It’s going to be alright” (Job 1:22).
Joseph was betrayed, tempted and wrongfully mistreated, but His faith in God assured him, “that it was going to be alright” (Genesis 50:20).
Ruth was a woman who left her homeland and went to a strange country, but she kept it together by believing that “everything was going to be alright” (Ruth 1:16-17).
My friend, I believe you are facing some tough struggles today. I believe you’ve asked yourself over and over again, “what else?”
However, I want to encourage you and remind you that God is near and this is just a test of your Faith that’s preparing you for greater things to come. Don’t let it get the best of you; Faith says, “It’s going to be alright!”
