Have you ever heard someone describe faith as sitting in a chair without any doubt of it holding you up? Many people use this example in teaching faith. It is a good analogy but lets take it a little deeper in the well of the Lord. If we look upon that chair while knowing it will hold up our weight then what happens when more pressures or weight is added to the seat? What happens if we do not know how to balance the weights through proper distribution and the weight becomes too heavy in particular spot?
If we were to look at our lives as a chair we would find that unless we are sitting on the rock of Jesus that our seats will fold under the pressures of this world. The question that we all should be asking is who or what is holding us up? For if we are relying on money or people then what are we going to do when neither of them are around?
Here is an awesome song by Kutless titled What Faith Can Do and I pray that it encourages your faith to carry on….amen
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
