“Faith is believing that which we can not see”. That’s sometimes easier said than done isn’t it?
However, for a moment, lets’ consider a couple of the MANY things that we believe in but we can’t see. Take electricity for example. It’s not hard to believe in electricity … Yet we don’t even so much as think about it when we turn on the lights or sit down to watch TV. We believe in the force of gravity, knowing that if we drop something it’s pretty certain that it will immediately fall to the ground!! We have faith that the sun will come up every morning and will set at the end of the day.
Having said this, is it hard to have FAITH in GOD? I think it is sometimes more difficult than other times. I’m not sure what the deciding factor is, but I know that for myself, my faith may waiver from time to time and my humanness rules. I think that I know what’s best for me and hopefully God will bless me in my own best interests! Then, something will happen and I’ll open my heart and mind to the word and return to having FAITH.
My dear friends and co-workers at COTHA and I have talked about how horrible it would be to go through the many devastating situations in life with out believing in God and having FAITH!!! Life can be so hard and the thought of not having a relationship with God and trusting in him with FAITH would make “doing life” sometimes absolutely unbearable.
Even though it’s hard sometimes to “keep the faith”, I trust, knowing that God is omnipotent and is with me in all things. He knows what’s best, the trust is up to me!
Deuteronomy 11:13 So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.
My prayer is to love the Lord my God and to serve him with all my heart and with all my soul and to have faith and trust Him in all things even when I think I know better! He must shake His head, give a little chuckle and say OK Willbrant, here we go again!!
