Having Faith in the mist of trails.

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trails, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

James 1:2-3

Not that we have dominion over your faith, but are fellow workers for your joy; for by faith you stand.

2 Corinthians 1:24

When you are a child of the most high God your faith should always be in him. In 2 Corinthians 5:7 it tells us to walk by faith and not by sight. What is Faith? In the dictionary faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing, belief that is not based on proof, belief in god or in the doctrines or teachings of religion, belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit.

He not going to tell you "oh look you don't have the money to pay your rent what you go do? You go get a loan? Where you go live? Who go help you out?" No, he is the one with his hand out to help you if you trust and believe in him. Tell your "friend" that you serve a God that is bigger then what you are going through. In Mark 9:24 a father cried out to God "Lord I believe, help my unbelief!" Some times that what you have to do, cry out to the Lord. Don't cry to friends they
