Why Faith Is Important
The media constantly bombards us with negative images and discouraging news that builds insecurity in us, to trust God. However Christians know to place their faith in God who has always sustained his people, even in tough economic times. God's designed his system around the principles laid out in the Ten Commandments and The Holy Bible.
The opinion of people, the press or philosophers don't take precedence of the word of God. The Old Testament records how the nation of Israel wandered in the wilderness for forty years and God fed them and led them to water each and every day.
Have Faith In God
God's faithfulness can't be denied. If you order your life by his principles, his promises and his purpose, it will go well with thee and with thy children and prolong your days upon the earth. To some these may seem like idle words, but Christian's know that God will do all that he says and exceedingly abundantly more than you can imagine.
Just ask Morris Goodman, the man doctors have dubbed the miracle man. While attempting to land his airplane one afternoon Morris crashed. He suffered a broken neck, crushed spinal cord and every major muscle in his body was destroyed. He was no longer able to perform any bodily function except to blink his eyes. His injuries were too severe for him to survive. But Morris did survive and because of a strong faith in God, courage and determination.
When you trust God to cover you and protect you it shows that you have surrendered your will to him. This requires that you take on a new way of thinking. Instead of making decision based on feelings each choice becomes a character decision.
Christian men have to learn how to not compromise their Godly character by making choices based on principles rather than convenience. It's your character that's really being compromised when you make decisions that are not in line with the word of God. It shows that you lack trust and have little faith in God.
