Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1. Following God requires us to have faith in times of plenty and times of trials. I have found that digging into His word daily gives me all the encouragement I need to get through most every day. CeCe Winans writes in her book On a Positive Note: Faith is about how you live your life in the meantime, how you make decisions when you don’t know for sure what’s next. What you do with yourself between the last time you heard from God and the next time you hear from God is the ongoing challenge of a life of faith.
