Today's Devotional Scripture

Today's Verse
May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.
~Psalm 33:22 NIV
Thought's on today's verse...
Do you believe the above verse? Or, do you have faith in the above verse? There is a difference between belief and faith. Though they are very closely related, they have an important difference.

In checking the Encarta online dictionary, the definition of belief is "the acceptance of truth about something". But faith goes beyond acceptance. Faith is believing what we cannot see, what isn't tangible, and in some cases even that which just doesn't make any sense. And sometimes when the awful and unthinkable happens in our lives, we will need to have faith that the Lord has unfailing love for us. And that's something we can believe in!
My prayer...
Lord God, help me to discern the difference between belief and faith, but to hold fast to each! In Your name I pray ~Amen!

Yours, because we're His,

Tamara
