Faith is believing God, is there, even when there is no feeling He is anywhere around.
Faith stands strong. We accept what God tells us in His word as being true when there is no evidence that we can see or feel. That is the trying of our faith. James spoke of our faith being tried as by fire. God said in His word that He will never allow more upon us than we can bear,
but He would always make a way of escape. Our feelings are contrary to the word of God.
I remember when I came to the Lord to receive Salvation I repented of everything I knew to repent of and I felt like He rejected me . The Minister told me to receive it by faith and the joy would come later and I did, and the joy did come later. That has helped me through out my life because there are times that I don’t feel Him, but I can tell you by His word that He never leaves me alone. He is a true blue friend.
