Presentation

When you don't understand where God is leading you, where do you place your faith?

In the Bible, there are many who have chosen, despite the circumstances, to place their trust in God. The author draws on several of them through 34 meditations.

He imagines their reasoning in the face of doubts and difficulties in life. With great talent, he brings relief to the personality of these men and women, to give them life, to make them accessible and close to our questions. There is only one desire: that you too can be encouraged to believe in Jesus even when everything is against it.

Jesus asks all those who want to follow him to believe without seeing. So don't limit yourself to what you see, but trust God's promises!

Author

Jon Bloom is author and co-founder of Desiring God Ministries. He is married to Pam and they have five children.

Recommendations

"Living by faith is not easy. Where is your faith provides us with short readings, once a day would be ideal, to help us rethink our lives in light of Jesus' deep faithfulness. What makes this book bold is that it takes Jesus at his word, simply, but thoughtfully. It’s so rare, and it’s so powerful! " - Ray Ortlund

"Spurgeon said, 'My books are my tools.' And the book you are holding in your hands is definitely in that category. Bloom's stories and his vision are a flame; a flame that awakens from death, a flame that lights up old, better paths, that gives us glimpses of the glory of God, inspiring us to run on this path of faith! " - Ann Voskamp

" Living and enriching sketches of biblical characters who have learned to live with a Lord who has sometimes had the gift of astonishing them. " - J. I. Packer

" Do you, like me, sense the futility of wanting to place our hope in what we can see? Drawing on the voices of those who have gone before us, Jon Bloom describes to us the path to excellence: walking by faith with Christ, our heavenly hope. Where is your faith takes us on a journey through the cloud of witnesses who, through the ages, testify to the ever sufficient grace of God. I am grateful for this meditation on the priceless promise of God, which will always give us what we need to be able to take the next step by faith. » - Gloria Furman
