We are all experiencing a trial like no other in our lifetimes and the ways people have endured it are many thus far. We all process stress and fear differently and faith is often lost when stress and fear are not processed well. But if any of us has lost faith during this time, nothing stands between you and regaining God’s blessing than resolving to be faithful again. Remember Peter, who three times denied Jesus during his final hours because he was fearful of what would happen to himself if he were associated with Jesus. Did Jesus disown him? No, he built his Church upon him. If there is a lesson to be applied from Peter’s denials to our current times, it is that it is never too late to be faithful — even if we have given up faith previously. Today, if you have remained faithful during this time, remain steadfast. If you have wavered, declare your faith, trust that God’s blessing is coming, and know that Jesus has never stopped loving you.
“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.“ — James 1:12
