Message from Sonya Berges, JH/SH Teacher

"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see."

Why is it that when God gives us a dream and a path to take, we still seek validation from people around us? Isn't God's blessing enough? Seeking wise counsel brings us perspective and insight. It allows us to see a broad picture or narrow in on the details we may miss. But when the advice contradicts what God's word says, we need to recognize it and walk away. When the advice conflicts with assurances God has given, prayer and faith become our focus.

Isaiah 26:3 says "you keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock."
