Have Faith in God

Last week I shared the ups and downs of our battle with my husband’s lymphoma.  Next week we find out if the cancer has returned.  It’s been a difficult couple of weeks, to say the least.

This past Sunday, the congregational hymn at church was “Have Faith in God” written by B. B. McKinney (who wrote a multitude of beloved hymns).  The Holy Spirit touched my heart with this song and I’ve been singing it over and over in my heart and mind all week.

The second verse especially spoke to me and my struggles:

                           Have faith in God when your pray’rs are unanswered
                           Your earnest plea He will never forget 
                           Wait on the Lord, trust His Word and be patient
                            Have faith in God, He’ll answer yet 


                            Chorus:Have faith in God, He’s on His throne
                            Have faith in God, He watches o’er his own 
                            He cannot fail, He must prevail 
                            Have faith in God, have faith in God!
 
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1  Our entire Christian faith is based on believing God’s Word and living our lives according to His precepts.  In times of difficulty, our  faith  may be overshadowed by our worries – the waiting and being patient part is often very difficult.  But that’s what faith is all about, trusting God, rejoicing in His love and blessings, and turning all our problems over to Him. But I trust in your unfailing love, my heart rejoices in your salvation.  I will sing to the Lord for he has been good to me.  Psalm 13:5-6
 
I pray that all of us going through difficult situations will remember to “Wait on the Lord, trust His Word, and be patient” and have faith in God!
