Power Through Faith

by Pastor Solly Bendrau

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

Hebrews 11:6

As believers it is a lot easier for us to believe the unlimited enormity of God’s ability in the creation of the universe and life itself, as opposed to God’s ability in changing or overcoming our own lives’ circumstances.

We suffer from memory myopia. We often forget God’s incredible miracles in the lives of so many, for thousands of years as documented in Scripture. What did all those people throughout the Bible have in common that they experienced miraculous events and changes in and around their lives? They had faith in God. They believed in God in a childlike manner - in absolute awe and hope.

For us today, it is also in that same type of faith in God that we are able to witness His hand in our lives and circumstances. It is not that He takes all adversity away but that in Him we are able to withstand, endure, avoid or conquer all that comes our way. In faith we put our lives in His hands, trusting Him completely and it is then that we will know His power in our lives.


Father God teach and guide me daily to faithfully trust in You and Your power. In Christ Jesus’ name we pray.
