It is so easy to forget God’s presence and power when we face uncertain and difficult times. Our faith falters and we doubt that God is with us, sometimes even doubting that He is real and who He says He is.
God knew that we would struggle with unbelief and has spoken reassuring words to us through the Bible. Remember that blessed are those who did not see but believe. This is because when we believe in His words, we will see the manifestation in our lives.
