So many times, our “faith” is believing that we can see what God will do. There’s an answer to a problem that we can envision, we just need a little help from heaven to make it happen. The truth is, God doesn’t need our strategy, He needs us to trust Him.
We are blind to His resources. We have no idea the answers that He can send our way. So instead of trusting Him when we don’t get what we thought we needed, we are crushed and turn away in disappointment, perhaps missing the answer that He provided that would have been far better than what we asked for.
Faith is believing in what you can’t see. Yes, it’s really hard. It comes from a relationship with the Father that is so close and personal that you never doubt that He will take care of you. A thousand will fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. (Ps 91:7) Can you stand in faith when you see that happening? When everything around you is falling apart? How amazingly blessed you will be if you can be strong and hold on to what you know to be true. Keep your eyes on the One who loves you most and all will be well.
