11/19/13 Daily Devotion

1 Thessalonians 3:7 Therefore, brothers, in all our distress and persecution we were encouraged about you because of your faith.

Faith is not something that can be overlooked in times of stress, for it is our faith that guides us through to the other side. Paul was greatly encouraged to hear of the faith of his brothers and sisters in Thessalonica. Even though they were facing persecution, even though their lives were distressed, their faith remained focused and pure. Can we say the same? When we run into the negative aspects of life, does our faith prevail? When life sends us a moment of temptation, does our faith bring home the victory? When things become jumbled and twisted, does our faith straighten them out? Our lives should be guided powerfully by our faith, for if they are not, what then is our controlling factor?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, strengthen my faith that it may carry me through those moments in life that strive to challenge me.
