We might be tempted to pat ourselves on the back when all is well, but the praise goes to God for His care and protection. God is able to do more than we can ask or imagine (Eph. 3:20). God is faithful and there is no way we can be defeated if we walk in faith with Him. Every challenge and problem we have is an opportunity to show the power of God in our life. We serve a “can do” God.
Notice I said “we” serve – another positive thing about our walk with the Almighty God is that we are not alone on this journey called faith. We lean on each other and help one another. We serve one another (Gal. 5:13), encourage one another (1 Thess. 5:11), and are devoted to one another (Rom. 12:10).
Satan would love for us to lower our view of God and separate us as a unified body of believers, but God’s love for us (Romans 8:28-39) and our love for each other (John 13:34-35) is what makes us strong in the faith.
