Are You Truly Trusting God to Provide for Your Life?

Finding Inspiration from the Lives of those in the Hall of Faith

by J.M. Troppello

Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is a substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” It’s the first verse in what’s been named, the Hall of Faith chapter since it goes on to share how faith was exhibited in people since the dawn of history.

Faith can be a tricky thing. Sometimes, it’s easy to have faith. Other times, it's hard. However, for the most pivotal times in your life when you have nothing left except to trust God, taking that first step of faith can be difficult. Yet once you continue to walk in that faith, every step will likely come more easily.

I asked this question in the title, are you truly trusting God to provide for your life since it's a question that's been on my heart lately. With the continual rise in gas prices and inflation, trusting God to provide for needs can be more difficult. Yet it’s important now more than ever, to take those steps of faith and trust God to provide for your needs.

Those needs can be physical, emotional, or spiritual. God cares for every part of you. In Luke 12:7, it reminds you that God knows how many hairs you have on your head. Jesus’s words urging you not to be afraid should encourage you. He continued on in that verse to say that you are worth more than many sparrows. That was in reference to the earlier mention in that passage of scripture that God cares for the birds and flowers. He cares even more for you.

I encourage you today to take those steps of faith with me as it applies to your own life. Take time to read through the entire chapter 11 of Hebrews. Hopefully, those stories of faith can encourage you in this moment.
