Daily Devotion: Where Is Your Faith?

Bible Reading: Luke 8:19-25

Key Verse: Verse 25 - “And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him."

Key Words: Where is your faith

Have you ever been in a frightful situation, and as a result, lacked in faith? Sure! We all have at some point; and we need to be reminded of that fact…that at times we are lacking in faith.

The key to Bible faith is the object of our faith. Some people have faith in their job. Some have faith in their possessions. Some even have faith in faith. None of these will please God though. The object of our faith is (or should be) our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You see, the object of your faith is important.

If a man stands in front of a pond with a thin sheet of ice and says I have faith that the ice will hold me; and he jumps and goes crashing down through the ice, the problem is not his faith…it is the object of his faith.

A businessman had to travel to a small town for a meeting and invited his wife to come with him. She was excited about the trip until she learned her husband was going to be flown to the small town in a small twin-engine plane. She said, “Honey, I’ve decided not to go … I am not going on a little-bitty, small twin-engine plane.”

Her husband smiled and knowingly said, “Honey, your faith is too small.” She quipped, “No, the plane is too small.” The businessman really wanted his wife to go with him, so he booked travel on a major airline. His wife went with him because, as she put it, “her faith grew because the size of the plane grew.”

The object of her faith determined how much faith she decided to have. We serve a “big” God so you can have a “big” faith.

What to do:
✞ Make sure the object of your faith is Jesus Christ.
