As Christians, we often put our faith in things that are not God. When we put our faith in non-perfect things, we get non-perfect results. Whether it is a political party, a relationship, or a job, it will fail if it’s not God.
No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer.
— 2 Timothy 2:4
We Christians frequently say, “I have faith in God, but…” almost as if Jesus doesn’t know what he’s doing and doesn’t have a plan.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
— Jeremiah 29:11
This is where we put our faith. We put our faith in the God that sets us apart and has a plan for each of us. It says in scripture that he knows the number of hairs on our head, and he will never lead us astray. We serve the true and faithful God, the God who leaves the 99 for the one, the God who split the sea for Moses, and the God who sent his son to die for us so that we may dwell with him for eternity. Our faith is not in things of this world, but rather the one who created the world.
