Unshakeable Faith

It’s been one year since my life changed for the worst. It took unshakeable faith to get me where I am today. I moved in with family and suffered abuse for 2 months. It’s my truth and it still affects my life today.

I relapsed and ended up in the psychiatric unit for a month due to stress. Abuse is never okay. It also should never be justified.

I moved in with my grandmother after leaving the hospital. A week later I applied for housing. I was put on a waiting lists for 7 months and the obstacles stayed stacked against what I was trying to do. I believed for better. I believed for a place of my own and God manifested it. I had discouraging family members but I stood on what God had promised me in 2012.

In August I moved into my own place. Unshakeable faith is not about not doubting. It is about standing on the promises of God. No matter what I endured with family I kept trusting God for better. I paid off a car by being obedient to God about my finances. It seemed like it wasn’t possible to do, but God.

You can make it with God and a strong foundation of faith. You can make it, no matter what comes your way. The obstacles might be stacked against you, but God is faithful to what He promised.

Unshakeable faith is about believing what you can not see or do not have assurance of yet. It’s about trusting God is working spiritually on your circumstance. Also, being obedient to the instructions of God.

I didn’t know giving up my place and moving in with family would take me down a path of pain but it did. Inspite this truth I never stopped acting on and praying about what God promised. I even began speaking as if it had already happened. Unshakeable faith is about standing firm on what you believe God for, inspite of the circumstances you face.

Four years ago God called me back to work and I didn’t know why. I did know that I was sick mentally and felt I would not be hired. God told me to trust Him for favor and I had to keep it to myself. This was hard. A month after this had been revealed to me I was hired and promoted while employed at that job. I wanted to share this because it was faith that got me through the job and God’s favor.

Unshakeable faith is something we all struggle with. God’s ways are so mysterious and hard to understand. When He is revealing His plans for our lives it can cause doubt and fear. I’ve gotten through it by God reminding me that He has done the mysterious again and again in my life.

What does the word say:

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).

“By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith (Hebrews 11:7).

Hebrews chapter 11 explains the importance of faith. It also explains the power of unshakeable, unwavering, and obedient faith. This is very important because it takes faith like this to make it through the hard places in life.

Unshakeable faith is built in the hard places. Never give up on what God promised you. Keep believing even when there is no evidence. God is omnipresent. He is always doing the impossible. His word says But Jesus looked at them and said to them with men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26).
