Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“Let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord” (James 1:6-7).

What does it mean to pray in faith? It means to base my prayers on the promises of God.  We cannot simply believe something will happen. There are people who say, “You only have to believe, and then you will receive it.” They are wrong. We need a concrete promise of God on which we can base our faith in every situation. This is the wonderful thing: the promises are there! For the lonely, for instance, “I am with you always” (Matthew 28:20). For the weak, “My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). For the worried, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7). For the weary, “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10). For the sick, “I am the Lord that healeth thee” (Exodus 15:26). God has given a promise for every situation, so that you can base your prayers in faith on these promises of God. Prayer is the highest expression of faith, so that you no longer depend on what is visible, but on what is invisible, the eternal God.
