August Is Here!
A letter from Kari Powell
Can you believe August is here already? Summer is going fast. To go along with Pastor Joe’s great messages on faith, this month we’ll have our bible reading and writing theme be faith as well. We all need a lot of it in these uncertain times. Many blessings!
Faith is something that so many people have a hard time wrapping their heads around. I think Hebrews 11:1 gives us an excellent definition of faith.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
I read once that faith is “the active confidence in the God who has revealed Himself – not a vague uncertainty about an unknown someone” and so love that definition! Faith is both a reminder that God is sovereign and that He is near.
At any time- we can reach out and touch the King of Kings, the Creator of heaven and earth- because He is that accessible and certain. In good times and in bad, He is ruling over every single detail of our lives.
I think God knew that we would struggle with the concept of faith and so, thankfully, there are lots of examples and stories of faith in the Bible.
Let’s spend this month reading and meditating on what God has to say about faith. You’ll find a PDF of the reading plan by clicking this link: August Scripture Journaling Plan.
