VerseD: Romans 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17, ESV

Too many churches rarely push the Gospel.

To few Christians can explain the Gospel.

Yet, it is the preaching of the Gospel that saves souls.

Stop. Read and know the Gospel.

Go. Share the Gospel.

Daniel



15When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my LORD! What shall we do?” the servant asked.
16“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
17And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

2 Kings 6:15-17

How many times in our life have we looked at situations that seem daunting and scary? I have fallen into the trap of not believing that our God has things under control.

I have fallen into the trap of not believing that our God has things under control.

I pray that God would open up our spiritual eyes and have Faith that God has it under His control. We may never see chariots of fire, but we can by faith see our tough circumstances in the light of God’s power.

Open my eyes, LORD. I want to see Jesus.

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

We cannot understand God. Able to see and know everything, He makes decisions that we may never see the origin or full results of, but He is our wise Father.

We can trust Him.
