In this life full of uncertainties, we must continue to believe that God is able to help us bring change in a world of darkness that’s filled with evil and injustice.   

As Christians, we must continue to hold up the blood-stained banner of the Lord, to shine the Light of Jesus Christ that’s in us, in this dark world. We must have faith to believe, “with God all things are possible”, according to Matthew 19:26.

Some of us will have a mustard seed faith, and some of us will have crazy faith, but nonetheless, we believe that a positive change is going to come. 

It’s time to raise a higher standard of our Christian morals and values in our churches, communities and families.  

People are dying daily, and many of them have not accepted Jesus into their hearts. If we, as saints of God, purposely continue to display Christ more in our lives and join together as a united force and take a stand to seriously walk in the will of God, then there’s hope for the lost.  

There is also hope for those that are fearful, depressed and oppressed, because God has promised us a better future. He said He would never leave us nor forsake us. God’s eye is on the little sparrow, and His eye is also upon us, so we’ve must have a faith to believe.   

On the bright side of it all, a faith to believe will move mountains, erase fears and calm all storms in our lives. We can then walk as a people who have been empowered to make a positive change. We must put away all denominational, political and social barriers to have faith to believe greater is coming. 

Faith births hope, and hope births belief, and belief births change, so let us embrace this truth and declare that we have a faith to believe.
