Life is challenging. It can be hard to have faith in the midst of difficulty and uncertainty. But God won’t leave you there. One way to move from fear to faith is to pray the promises of God from His word. Jesus modeled it for us. Speak God’s word to Him and stand firm in your faith. He will see you through.
