For me walking by faith is an initial struggle. Once I have gained victory over certain territories of my soul and life it doesn't require the wrestling I sometimes do. But upfront a battle usually ensues. I think it is good thing though. It reminds me of the resistance one feels with exercise, It is all intended to build strength.
"It is not of him that wills but of God that shows mercy." Nothing in the earth seems to be easy, but the Bible says "faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." Romain 10:17
Faith grows and becomes easy when it's daily exercised...For instance, the word says "give thanks in all things, knowing that all things work together for good to them that love God."
Walking by sight, it may seem like the whole hell is loose on you as a believer but when you remember and believes what the word says concerning you, you'll rejoice and thank God because you know victory is sure! That's faith! With that mindset, walking by faith gladdens one's spirit in the face of any untold seemingly challenges. "To him that is joined to the living God, there's hope. A living dog is better than a dead lion."
Jesus told us that we would have trials and tribulations in this world. I do. He faced temptations, and so do we. I also have faith that he will get me thru it.
Psalm 23 tells us that he will provide for us, keep us safe, lead us, and with his help we will prevail. It is a beautiful passage in the Bible. Just take hold of his hand and don't let go.
I posted a Hub. It is a true experience that I had a few years back. It was a blessing to me and I hope reading it will be a blessing to others. It is an example of being in torment and how Jesus brought me thru.
sure it can be easy when everythings going the way you want it to its when things get rough that beleaving gets hard and its when things get rough that beleaving is vital

Do you know a Christian who has pushed you away from the faith?
by Mahaveer Sanglikar 14 months ago
Many believers like to say that Atheists should prove that there is no God. Believers should know that existence has to be proved, not the non-existence. If a thing exists, it is possible to prove its existence. So believers should prove the existence of God if he exists. But if they want to do it,...
