A good friend of mine baked some bread a few weekends ago and forgot to put the yeast in on the first attempt. It didn't rise, even though all the other ingredients were there. One missing ingredient can prevent everything from working well together.

In life and ministry, that ingredient is faith - full trust and confidence in God. No matter what you are facing or going throuygh right now, add some faith to it. God is with you and he is at work in ways we dont often see at the time. 

Hebrew 11:6. It is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.

Hebrews 11:1. Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. NLT
