Why is faith sometimes hard for you?
In the message there were several statements that help us understand why “faith is hard”:
“What you believe about your future controls how you experience the present.”
“Faith is the deliberate confidence in the character of God, whose ways you may not understand at the time.” (Oswald Chambers)
“Faith is not a leap in the dark, it is trusting (walking) in the light.”
“Validity and strength of Faith is in its object.”
Which of these statements is most challenging to help you grow in your faith in God? Which is most encouraging?
According to the teaching from Habakkuk 1, how do the following statements help you define faith?
