(Live Out your Faith, Trust on God’s Promises

"Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways when they carry out their wicked schemes.”

Psalm 37:7 (NIV)


“Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”

Psalm 62:8 (NIV)


A woman who possesses a true spiritual beauty has perfect confidence in God’s Word. She trusts God’s promises completely for she has a solid faith in the integrity of God’s character. Her knowledge of God is not merely head knowledge but something that goes beyond theology. She has such a deep experiential and revelation knowledge of God. That is one of the reasons that she will hold on to her faith amidst fiery trials. She is not given to grumbling and complaining but will rest in the promises of God's word. She will wait patiently for her God for answers to her prayers. She will be still and not fret when God tarries in answering her.

One negative attitude that makes a woman so undesirable and ugly is grumbling. It is written in Philippians 2:14;

“Do all thing without grumbling and questioning.”

Another word for grumbling is murmuring. Mumbling is another good way to describe it. Murmurers and mumblers are people who always seem to be unhappy about something and are always complaining and criticizing. Murmuring is a serious issue. A true Christian cannot remain on living like this. Murmuring is a display of unbelief against God. God wants His child to have a strong faith in Him. Rather than to complain and murmur, God wants you to continue on trusting Him amidst trying times.

In the Old Testament times, there was once a woman named Leah who was not loved well by her husband, Jacob. Her sister Rachel was loved more by her husband. But this woman, Leah did not complain nor grumble about it to her husband, instead, she brought her situation before the Lord through prayer. Leah sought the Lord's help for her situation. The Lord heard her prayers and blessed her with many sons. It was through one of her sons, Judah, the Christ came into this world.

What made Leah commendable is that she always chose to live out her faith in her miseries rather than resort to grumbling. Throughout her agonies as a woman who had been deprived of her husband’s attention, Leah sought the Lord and found contentment in the Lord’s presence. This made her a beautiful woman of faith.

(Bible Text: Genesis 29-35)

I do admire sister Nelly, my camp counselor during the 1985 living discipleship camp I attended sponsored by our church. She is a great model for today’s women as one who exemplifies well the “life of faith”. After doing a ministry for the youth for more than fifteen years, Nellie moved out of Manila and lived in a small town in Pangasinan which is not her hometown. She settled there for good and remained in her calling as a worker of the Lord. Now a senior citizen herself, she is still in that town and doing ministry among the elderlies. Sister Nellie took a great step of faith when she settled in a place, not her own which she called now her home.

The Lord has proven Himself faithful to sister Nellie in that town. She is living alone in her house with her pet lovebirds as the only companions. When the storm grows intense and heavy downpour cause overflow of a river nearby, sister Nellie started praying hard. The river overflowed and started flooding on the streets. The flood was about to wash away her house when the rain stopped and her house was spared. Many similar events happened to her many times. Living out the faith and trusting God on His faithfulness that makes a woman truly courageous and truly lovely. Truly the righteous shall live by faith. True christianity is indeed a demonstration of a life of faith.


Amidst adversities of life, be still and rest fully upon God’s power.

“He who bestows the oil of joy instead of mourning gives us hope even in the midst of the darkest of situations.”
