Faith, It’s Not As Difficult As You Think
Gotta have Faith, Faith, Faith.
Faith. Gotta have it, as the song says. It’s true. Hebrews 11:6 shares with us, “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
Something supernatural happens to us when we no longer view God as the God found on hallmark cards. When the supernatural collides with our natural – our lives change. When we come to the end of ourselves and realize that we can no longer do this on our own – lives change. Our life changes.
Faith is a minute by minute thing not just a mission statement to put a pin in. Girlfriend, it’s real. Because God isn’t the God of the Hallmark Card. If you currently have that kind of relationship with God you know it’s not very sustaining. God, is alive, active, and completely in our business. He isn’t afraid of our fears. He is right there with us.
What makes faith not difficult is understanding God is a good Father. A father who is present and active in our lives. For some of us, we have no earthly reference point, our earthly father was not present or active. If that’s you, I’m so sorry. I can reassure you of this – God knows that. He knows if we come to the game wounded and hurting. Dear one, you are still invited to live a life of faith. One of the most effective things I’ve ever done is cry out to God, “You want me to trust you, but I don’t even know what that looks like in my life. Help me.” And He will. Step-by-step until the training wheels of your faith come off. And then He does what every good Daddy does – He brings new situations and seasons into our lives, that grow our faith more.
