We have overcome many trials in our lives because of the grace, mercy, and love of God. The Hebrew writer said in Hebrews 11:1 that, "faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen." According to Ephesian 2:8, faith is a gift from God. It is this special gift that gives us the hope and confidence that God is a God who will never fail us and who will never leave us. It is this special gift of faith from God that we know we can depend on Him in keeping his promises. Yes, we have come this far by faith and like the songwriter said we came this far by leaning on the Lord. Faith, the gift from God helps us to stay on the battlefield and to continue pressing on to higher ground. Therefore, no matter what you are facing in your life, no matter what traps Satan may set for you, and no matter how hard living in this world might be, keep your faith because we did not come this far to turn around.
