If you look at the stories of the men of faith in the Bible, each of them had to embrace God and His Word as He defined it to them.
If we define our reality by our current circumstances, we are set up to be offended. Faith trusts that God is good, regardless of my circumstances.
Why does our God make our living reality something unseen rather than seen? And why is faith required to please God and nothing else?
We live in the Reality of our unseen realm. We're called to suspend our earthly reason and logic to believe in something fantastical.
The source of most of our stress, if not all of it, is our opinions and judgments, but once I looked at God, He rushed in to extinguish my opinionated fire.
We are positioned to perfectly witness God’s divine orchestration of our lives so that we might increasingly come to know Him and love Him.
There's someone trying to lead us. It isn't accidental, it's quite purposeful. They desire to motivate us, guide our decisions, and direct our activity.
I've often struggled with claiming the promises in the Word as my own. But what I am learning is it is about me because my life is about He not me.
In my life, I have so often believed I had to manage my health. I've been the high priest of my personal health care. I have done as I saw fit and what I wanted.
Health is like a dipstick which reveals the level of our faith in God’s Lordship and Sovereignty.
I wanted to share another example, one about my own health crisis rather than one I merely witnessed.
God gave me a love of the truth, and I'm grateful. But loving truth is no substitute for faith, and only IN faith does it become a love of the One Who IS Truth.
