Psalm 27:13 - How to Strengthen Your Faith.
Psalm 27:13 (NASB) I would have despaired
unless I had believed that I would see the goodness
of the LORD in the land of the living.
Any major crisis in your life has the
potential to shake your faith. But the opposite can be
true too. If you let it, your faith can carry you
through a crisis.
King David suffered great loss, including
the loss of a child. After these crises in his
life, he wrote in Psalm 27:13, I would have
despaired unless I had believed that I would see the
goodness of the LORD in the land of the living
(NASB). In Davids darkest time, only his belief
in Gods goodness kept him going.
The same can be true for you. Even when
life feels unbearable, believe that God is good.
Even when everything is going wrong, believe that
Gods goodness can pull you through. Believe that
Gods plan for your life is greater than the
problem youre going through.
How do you get that kind of faith? You
can get it from Gods Word, and from the
encouragement of faithful friends.
If you know the Bible well, youre
going to have great faith. If you know the Bible a
little, youre going to have a little faith. If
you dont know Bible at all, youre not
going to have any faith.
Did you know there are more than 7,000
promises made to you in the Bible? But you cant
claim them if you dont know them. If you want
to increase your faith so youre able to
handle the rough winds of life, get to know the
Bible through study, meditation, and
Then, as your faith in Gods goodness
grows, you can share your faith with your friends
when they are going through a crisis. Friends
strengthen their friends faith. [Daily Devotional by
