What do you do when you lose faith?
Share your feelings with a compassionate and trustworthy person who will understand your disillusionment and doubts and not impose their own beliefs on you. Try not to “rebound” towards an alternative belief system straight away, to fill the gap. Give yourself time to re-evaluate your needs.
How do you have faith in God in hard times?
Here are five ways I try to keep faith when it seems impossible:
- Pray. Ask God, the universe, or whatever higher force you believe in for the strength to love to your full potential.
- Be generous to others.
- Get inspired.
- Surround yourself with people you admire.
- Get the ball rolling first thing in the morning.
What to do when God is not answering your prayers?
Rest in Him. God always comes through on His promises and we can trust that His plans are much better for us than our own. Sometimes His answer is “wait,” or “not yet”. Other times it’s a flat out “No, child. My will for you is better.” We’ll never be able to see the full picture of what God has planned for us.

Does God’s word ever fail?
God Never Fails—Joshua 21:45. Mary Fairchild is a full-time Christian minister, writer, and editor of two Christian anthologies, including “Stories of Cavalry.” Joshua 21:45 firmly establishes this truth: God keeps his Word. Not one of God’s good promises has ever failed, not before the time of Joshua, not after, and not now.
Does the gospel work when our expectations of God fail?
Rather, our expectations of what life “ought to be” have failed us. Or understood a different way, when we find ourselves most disappointed with God, God has not failed us—but our expectations of God have failed us. We should always hesitate to assume the gospel doesn’t “work” when we simply cannot see the big picture.
Will God’s good promises ever fail?
Not one of God’s good promises has ever failed, not before the time of Joshua, not after, and not now. In the New Living Translation Isaiah 55:10-11 says, “The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth.
Are You destined to fail in living up to God’s standards?
Whatever the specifics, you and I are destined to fail in living up to God’s standards. But how we respond to that failure is up to us, and either way failure can be a powerful force in our lives. Just look at the stories of Peter and Judas. Peter and Judas both spent years in Jesus’ presence, leading up to the Last Supper.
