How do we as Christians keep our faith when we are going through? I find myself in a situation that is now carrying over into a new year. I am finacially struggling and my spirit is near severe depression. What do you do when your faith has been continually tested.

Blessings to you. Trials and Tribulations come to make us strong and YES, this is a test. A test of faith. Why are you still struggling although you're fasting and praying? Ask yourself these questions:
What part of the test am I NOT passing?
What is in God's will for me that I am NOT following?
Fasting and Praying is one thing, but are you FAITHFUL. I'm talking TRUE faith. I'm not doubting you, I just want to help answer your question. The word says: " Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen". Faith is simple: F.ully A.nd I.ntimately T.rusting (The Almighty God)

When we get in our cars and stick the key in the ignition...that's faith..we have no proof that the car will start, we just BELIEVE that it will. However, there are days, when the car won't start because of minor issues or the lack of maintenance. So, when our cars don't start, we don't give up, we FIX the problem. God is NOT like an automobile..he WON'T break down, but we ARE.. we need maintenance. So I ask you today, when was the last time you had a tune up?
Like the songwriter said (Christian Automobile) "You gotta to check on your tires. You got a ROUGH road ahead. And when you are weary from this journey, God will put you to bed....". Sister...crank up your STARTER, get on FIRE for the his your word...share your testimony, but MOST importantly...PRAISE YOUR WAY THROUGH THE STORM.
Life is a series of're either in one, just came out of one or headed into one...Let the Grace of God BE your umbrella. Thank God for what you DO have today. Praise him for what you HAVEN'T had to endure or go could be worse but because of God's mercy, it's not. Be Blessed.
Much Love!
First i want to tell you , you will have what you speak so stop speaking negative over your self your not near severe depression your near your break through just when it feels worse and it seems that its not getting better that's when your right at the door my sister we all are having some kind of struggle don't loose heart have faith speak to your situation and tell that mountain to be removed and cast into the sea girl you are a child of the most high stand up and take authority over the devil and kick him out this is a war but on the whole armor of god you need some one to push you through get some prayer warriors you know to pray with you and if you don't know any one you can find plenty on this site including me. David in the bible learned to encourage himself when every one was mad about there camped being invaded and there wife's taken he had no one but god so he stood his ground and went after what the devil has stolen. Don't let him steal your peace any longer your eyes are not on jesus that's why the problem has over taken you . i am struggling too but i am not discouraged god has promised us he will never leave us or forsake us you have his promise hold on my sister your right at the door because this year your deliverance will come claim it shout it but praise god victory is in the praise and he has ordered your steps walk it out girl you can do it you can. Now if you need prayer e-mail me your number and i will call you and pray with you because there is power in agreement . love you sister
I don't mean to be rude, but I've been where you are and I must say I've said those words before. Noone can tell you anything but God. I suggest you read a book called "Dark Nights of the Soul" by Thomas Moore in addition to your reading of scripture. Please understand that your issue is not a spiritual one alone and not exactly a psychological one fully. He has a chapter in the book called "Sorting out and Starting Over" where he states that when we get self out of the way, we are able to sort out what we want and need from God. It requires the soul to experience dread, shame, fear, puzzlement, and even hopelessness. What you may be experiencing could simply be your time for self-confrontation which in turn would bring you out of what you consider struggling.

I think at times we overspiritualize human growth and development and suppress the creativity and nurture that God is wanting us to experience. I am praying for you and hope you realize that you alone are not the problem and its not necessarily because of sin, or lack of enough faith, but God helping you grow and mature become whole.
I continue to keep his commandments that are taught in Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Dueteronomy. When you do these laws, it it assured that you will prosper in every area of your life(duet 28). The same chapter also shows us the curses for not following the law. If you are praying, fasting, and believing without obedience to the law of Yahweh, then you do those things in vain, but if you are obedient to the law of Yahweh, blessings with come.
