Hi Guys!, We all do have faith in God, but the question is how strong? Most of us only have faith in Him because of the blessings that we have. But when in times of troubles, what do we do? we are the first to blame Him. Then we ask the question why? Is it the things that we receives that measures our faith in God or in the challenges and troubles that we face. Faith in Him is not measured on the positive things that we receive, it is on how much we believe in Him. How bout you guys how strong your faith is when it comes to Him?

How strong is my faith? I guess only God can tell. I can only say that I try my best to praise Him at any condition; happy, sad, anger, excite, anything. I always taught that I have to have a positive thinking toward God. He is the Greatest and the Most Merciful; so I can't see any point to blame God at all.

I agree with Varier.Only God knows how big is our faith.There are lots of people who seems to have much faith,but just a show off.We can only say that we really have faith in God when we are still thanking Him even we'll lost everything we love.Of course, it's difficult for most of us, and only those who have strong faith and patience will persevere.He knows how much we can bear,and He will not bring us burdens we can't carry.

My faith in God is strong, to the extent that i entrust Him me and my daughter'S life. I have undergone a major trial in my life that i am sure, if not for my faith in Him i should have not survived. Up to now, He always do miracles in our lives. Some things that i thought would be impossible or would be very hard to do, He made possible. So how could i not entrust our lives to Him. even my daughter who was a half believer was amazed with what God has done to her. Though we do not live in abundance, i do not worry because i know God wlll always provide for us and He will not forsake us. God Bless!

Glory to God, your faith will go a long way for others just the standing without talking is faith speaking. The Bible says that we are the "living word" Our life will speak louder than our words oftentimes. It's not always what we have but how much we are grateful to God for what He has done for us. Like the story of the 10 leperods only 1 came back an thanked God. Even in the mist of difficult times getting through in peace might mean just saying thank you lord for what you done in the past and what you are about to do now!

Faith in God cannot be measured because only God knows how much we love Him. But in my own experience, I know that many of my prayed request were answered the time I learned to pray heart to heart with Jesus..Many years are gone in my life but I didn't noticed the blessing to me until time come that I felt almost alone and only God is there for me..I really believed in the magic of his hands when you really ask for it, but I know that God will not open the door for what is not good for me..Praise the Lord.

To the fullest and to the extent in which evil can't get it. I trust my life to Him. Blessed me and care my life so that I can walk with Him through His words until the end of my life.

I have faith but not in god. I rely on myself and others around me.

My faith is really strong. No matter what people tells about God and no matter what churches I attended my faith and believes doesn't change. I have encountered so many problems in life before and the one I questioned was my self. I asked my self why is this happening to me. What have I done wrong? Have I been bad these days. Did I take advantage of others people or have I been so insensitive or cruel towards other. They I would realized that maybe I have been like that. So I just pray and ask for forgiveness and for the light in my path. Then I would feel that all the problems that I'm facing were suddenly having solutions. Sometimes it's evils acts why things happen to us and sometimes it's our own fault. We should asked our self first. I'm not really religious but I know my faith is strong.

I believe that whatever happens to a being happened for a reason. Smost times when bad things happen, it may be that it happened just to avoid even bigger evils. but because we our not all-knowing we wouldn't know that. For e.g you applied for a job ( a job u need badly) but was unsuccessful, u think oh God why me and i pray to u all the time . U may not know if God was actually protecting u frm a danger from that job or if he has an even bigger opportunity for u.

If he or she believes on SUPERSTITIONS BELIEFS then his or her faith is totally not strong.... even though he or she claims that her or his faith is awesome but still, it is not a solid faith if believing in other superstitious beliefs..... why believing in Superstitious Beliefs if you only accept that God is the only powerful and who controls everything?

I simply let whatever fate God has bestowed upon me happen, and accept all the difficulties I experience as challenges presented to make me stronger. I pray to Him in times of trouble, but also thank him for the blessings that he gives me. I don't go to church every Sunday nor do I read the Bible, but I think that as long as I believe and respect in God (or a higher power for other religions) and do good to those around me, then I think it's enough :)

Some of us may view trials in life as very unpleasant and undesirable-unwelcome events indeed. But, this should not be the case. Something good comes after the people of God have endured trials. By going through trials, they are eventually led to perfection. Indeed, trials are essential in our life for us to be brought to perfection. But, this purpose is fulfilled only if we are faithful and obedient to God, not departing from His commandments. When being tested, therefore, we get the chance to prove our faith in God by enduring the tests of faith all the way. In times of trials, it is important for us to find out not how we can avoid the pain, but rather, how we can put our faith and hope together to bear the tests of our faith. After this, we shall emerge as pure gold-this means our trials will have led us to perfection. Remember that God expects us to remain faithful to HIM even when we are under pressure due to various circumstances. Note that Jacob remained faithful to God despite the severe hardships and fierce trials he went through, and so, he was blessed. Never lose hope whatever our experience in this life would be. Let us always keep this in mind: "All things work together for the good of those called by God".....that's how strong my faith in God!

(Hello) Yes I agree, even in the tears, even in the hurts faith says I will stand and believe. God doesn't disqualify us when we feel hurt or get discouraged, or feel frustrated but when we quit and run and not return back in the race. The scripture says he that endures to the end the same shall be saved (delivered, set free, recieve the things that we ask for) It's not how excited, how high, heated or how one takes off but how you land. Glory to God! The faithful one is the one that is full of faith not full of fear, full of strength for the joy of the Lord is our strength. The trying of your faith is for you to see where you are in God according to Psalm 91. He that dwells in the secret place. Sometime we are not dwelling we are visiting. For God desires a habitation not just a visitation. Somebody shout and say Glory!

How strong is my faith? I think its between me and God. In a verse in the Bible, it says that "All things work together for good to those who love God". I believe all things happen because God has a reason for them.
