Sometimes believing is hard. And yet, scripture tells us that to please God, we must approach believing He exists and that He will respond.

The writer of Hebrews says,

It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him.

Hebrews 11:6 MSG

And on the days believing is hard, He almost always shows Himself faithful to me. Earlier this week, I was worrying about a project I’m working on. I sent an email to the gals working with me and expressed my fears…and then I totally asked God to encourage us all in a very specific way.

So…later in the day, I received an encouraging email from someone totally unrelated to the project. But she guessed that we might be a little discouraged at this point and sent us words to lift our spirits and our hearts. And then…the very thing I’d asked God to do to encourage us happened as well. I’d asked for one confirmation and got two! God is so faithful to bless us in such personal ways. 

How has God encouraged you this week?
