Nowadays, it seems we depend so much on formulas, without really getting to know the Master personally. I guess this is why we simply fall apart when we are hit by the hash realities of life.

Many years ago, my Pastor said something that I’ll never forget. He said, “Faith is born out of relationship.”

The degree to which we know somebody, will determine the level of faith and confidence we place in them. Rarely would we put our faith in a complete stranger. Why? Because we don’t know them.

Paul said he knows whom he has believed (2 Timothy 1:12 ). Do you? This was a statement from a letter he wrote in prison.

Cultivating your personal relationship with the Father, will see you through tough and perplexing times. It will keep you mentally and emotionally balanced, because you know Him (Psalm 9:10).

Remain strong in His grace.
