U Gotta Have FAITH.

Lately, I have been dealing with some things that have caused me to believe some of the devil's lies, lies like 'God is not listening to your prayers' or 'You will never have peace of mind'. I had a lot of rage in me that was tamed but needed to be let out. Thank God he sent my brother at the exact right moment and a bunch of other people like my supervisor at the Billy Graham library to talk to me, and give me the chance to vent. I keep learning that we fight not against people, but the evil spirits inside them. Never let the devil lie to you and tell you that people can't be changed just because they are the way that they are at that given moment. You don't know what God has planned for that person to get saved or repent of their sins if they are already saved. You keep praying no matter what.

That's when Faith comes into place. Faith is the belief of things not seen. So when people tell you that praying is not going to help, that is the devil using them to water down the Faith that you have in your heavenly Father. I have recently learned that my Faith is what has kept me all this time in the midst of persecution by some of my loved ones and some. Matthew 6:33 says "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." This means that you shouldn't worry about the food you will eat and the roof over your head. When you put God first in your life, all these things will literally be handed to you. Again, Faith plays a big part in this, even with things like family conflict. Don't try to fix family problems by yourself. Put God first and he will work everything out. FAITH is very important. Build up your FAITH in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and God promises to give you PEACE!
