Lately, I have been wrestling with my thoughts due to the trials my family and I have been going through. So today the Holy Spirit asked me a question, What is the measure of your faith? And in return, I was not quite sure how to answer.
But before I get ahead of myself, lets first define a couple of things. What is faith? The Bible defines faith in Hebrews 11:1 as "the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Secondly, What is the definition of measure? Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines the word measure in many different ways but the one the Holy Spirit focused me in on was measure - an estimate of what is to be expected (as of a person or situation).
Then I was reminded to read the whole chapter of Hebrews 11 in order to better comprehend the question presented to me.
Upon completing my reading, I began to ponder, Is my faith where He expects it to be?
Due to my current trials, I can admit that I have not remained as faithful. But God has been so merciful to remind me of his goodness in the past towards me. Remember no matter what trial you are facing, reflect on those times in the past that God has brought you through.
So I ask you to ponder the same question presented to me by the Holy Spirit
What is the measure of your faith?
In the meantime, remember Hebrews 11:6 KJV says "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."
