‘Word soon reached Jethro, about all the wonderful things God had done for His people and for Moses’
- Do you believe that you can trust the Lord for wonderful things at this time? - It is part of God’s heart and character to do wonderful things for us. - Be expectant, keep holding on, and believe in His faithfulness towards you. - May others soon hear about the wonderful things He has done for you.
Prayer: Lord, I am expectant, and my heart is full of confidence that You will do wonderful things for me. I pray that others, around me, will also see how You have undertaken and provided for me. Amen.
Daily Bible Verse: Psalm 138:7
‘If I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve me from the anger of my foes; You will extend Your hand, and Your right hand will save me.’

Because of Our Faith We Are Different
October 21, 2019
OUR FAITH GETS TESTED
This is perhaps the difficult part. Not only does God give us a measure of faith, He then proceeds to allow that faith to be tested.
1 Peter 1:7 These trials are only to test your faith, to see whether or not it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests gold and purifies it—and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold; so if your faith remains strong after being tried in the test tube of fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day of his return.
The great personalities of the Bible experienced this testing of their faith. We only have to think of people like Noah and Abraham to see this principle in action.
Romans 4:9 Abraham’s faith was credited to him as righteousness.
BECAUSE OF OUR FAITH WE ARE DIFFERENT
True faith makes us different. I see many people who call Themselves Christians who have very little joy in their hearts and in essence are not much better than the average ordinary citizen who is endeavouring to be a ‘good’ person.I believe that God is looking for more than this. True faith makes us different. It does not breed complacency and passiveness. It causes us to become the dynamic Christians we were meant to be. True faith even brings changes to the things we are interested in. It starts on the inside and changes us on the outside.
