Faith in God

Why is it, people, that we lack faith in Christ? Have we not been reminded in The Word of God that His Word is true and holy? Then again I ask: Why do we not trust whole heartedly? Not saying that I have already obtained this perfect faith; but I strive towards having it; but I am saying that we must all press on towards that goal. The goal of knowing Christ so well that we lay everything at his feet without a second thought.

In the beginning God gave man power over all creation. Continually in the Word we are reminded of His faithfulness. Did He not command Noah to put all of the animals of the earth into the ark? This shows again that He gives us control over all the creatures of the earth. Also, how many people do you know that have one or more pets. do you know how many zoos people run?

So know I ask you: Why have you not trusted God in all things? You have heard the truth. Philipians 4:6-7 says "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
