Romans 10:17 (NKJV) states: “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Our intake of God’s Word and our faith go hand in hand. When we are intentional about reading, hearing, and studying God’s Word, we will inevitably gain faith in the Lord, His promises, and His future plans.
If your country’s leader signed a law that banned prayer to God – punishable by death – would you immediately pray and thank the Lord? This is essentially what Daniel did when faced with this dilemma. Despite being faced with death, and death by lions nonetheless, Daniel showed an unbreakable spirit and unmatched faith in his God.
When faced with a storm, where do you turn to? Time and time again in God’s Word, we see Him saving, providing for, and protecting His people. We see Him part the Red Sea for Moses, help David slay Goliath, and even helped Peter to walk on water. Our God is anything but limited by what we expect!
Psalm 27 is written by David as he flees Saul, his army, and their plans to kill him to stop his claim to the throne. While any normal person would be scared for their life as they fled the army and king of one of the most powerful nations on earth at the time, David was not. Instead, he took quite a different stance. David recognized that His God was greater than his problem.
