There’s power in consistency. The thing that will benefit us the most is our unchanging faith in God.

Negative circumstances will come. How we respond to those circumstances determines the level of our faith. Enduring faith, a short burst of faith, and no faith are our options.

Example: You and your family are standing in faith for a new house.
Negative Circumstance: Your spouse gets laid off which forces the household finances to be cut in half.
Option 1: You continue to stand in faith for the house. You continue to look at floor plans, make confessions, and watch HGTV for ideas.
Option 2: You remain in faith until the bills are due and you realize you barely have enough to pay the current bills. After a month, your faith for a house is tainted with doubt and you slowly stop believing.
Option 3: You immediately stop believing because you can’t logically see how buying a house now is going to happen.

God can work around any negative circumstance if we continue to believe.

We must make a decision. Will we doubt, lose hope, and give up on God’s promises or will we stand firm and wait on the promises of God? Regardless of the circumstance, have unchanging faith and believe in God.

Jeremiah 17:7 But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is Him. 8 He will be like a tree planted by the waters that sends out its roots toward the stream. It does not fear when the heat comes, and its leaves are always green. It will not worry in a year of drought or cease producing fruit.

Matthew 21:21 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen.
