Psalm 55:22, NIV: "Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall."

In the military, when marching and hearing the command, "About face!" the soldiers reverse direction and begin walking the complete opposite direction. Imagine God giving us the command, "About faith!" Yes, it's a play on words; but perhaps it is a good picture of what faith is about. It means that we turn away from depending upon self, and turn toward trusting God. We stop following our own way, and follow God's direction; to turn from the way we think in our own understanding and trust in Him with all our heart (Prov. 3:5). The Christian journey, after all, is about faith. For, we "have been saved through faith" (Eph. 2:8); and "we walk by faith and not by sight" (2 Cor. 5:7); and "without faith, it is impossible to please God" (Heb. 11:6). Faith "is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see" (Heb. 11:1). By faith, we take God at His word; believing that "God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God" (Rom. 8:28); and by faith we trust that as we acknowledge God in all our ways, He will direct our paths (Prov. 3:6). By faith we persist in believing that God cares for us, and has our best interest at heart--even when things seem most grim--when life is most difficult. No matter what may come, or how dark the times may seem; God is with you. He has promised He will neither leave nor forsake you (Dt. 31:6; Heb. 13:5). Do not listen to any voice that says differently. Refuse to believe anything or anyone who casts doubt, for "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1). Do not give up hope.
