It’s interesting how stepping out in faith in God can be so difficult for us and yet faith in earthly things so easy.
We have faith that when we sit in a chair it will not break.
We have faith that when we turn the key in our car it will start.
We have faith that when we flip a switch light will flood the room.
So why is faith in God often so hard for so many of us?
Is it because we cannot see Him? All the things mentioned above are tangible things that we have proven time and again. But we cannot see God. Even those of us who have proven Him to be true and faithful over and over in our lives reach circumstances even sometimes simple ones – where it is hard to put our trust in what we cannot see or know.
“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
As children many of us believed in Santa and because of our faith that he would fill our stockings on Christmas Eve we wrote him letters and left out cookies and mild for him, and carrots for his reindeer.
And that faith was rewarded.
How much more should our faith be in our Creator? The God who knows us better than we know ourselves asks us to put our faith in Him — believing that what He promises will come to pass.
I believe that faith will be rewarded as well.
We are humans who are independent and often want immediate results, and immediate reward. I am believing more and more that when we put our trust in God to bring good things into our lives, to resolve situations and to bring us peace BELIEVING it will come to pass, it will indeed.
No cookies are needed!
Is there something you’re struggling with believing right now? I hope you’ll put your faith in God and believe that He will bring blessings your way. That is His desire for His children as well.
blessings and peace on your day…
