When you’re down to nothing, God is up to something. The faithful see the invisible, believe the incredible, and then receive the impossible.
I don’t know about you, but most Christians I know personally don’t live in this way. I’m definitely not saying that it won’t be a bit scary to totally put your trust in God, BUT WHAT A WAY TO LIVE!
You can look back at your life and see that God came through in miraculous ways, plus the more you see God’s Character the more you will know that if He has told you to do something, He will not only do what He promised, but many times it will be even better than what you imagined. I know that doesn’t always happen, but the more you set your mind and heart to follow God, the more you will see how much He loves you and wants you to have His Very Best.
All the great people of faith that we read about in the Bible were ordinary people like you and me that God used in a miraculous way. None of them could see the end result – they just had to trust what God told them.
The Old Testament people of faith didn’t even have the reassurance of the Holy Spirit to encourage and guide like we do today. Most of them heard from God through an angel or spoken word, sometimes only once or twice in their life, and then had to wait sometimes for years before God brought to pass what He had told them.
Then I think about all the people who never heard from God audibly even once in their whole lifetime. They just had to believe in Him as the One True God and live their lives the best they could based on that belief.
I am so thankful the Holy Spirit is here now to lead and guide me each day. I don’t have to guess at making a decision because He will always give me the right answer.
You are made in the same image of God that Abraham, Moses, and Noah were, and capable of doing the same things they did if you surrender your life to God.
We all pale in comparison to the God who created the universe and everything in it.
Unfortunately, we convince ourselves that we have control over what happens each day. But it only takes one moment to change our life forever, whether good or bad. God is never taken by surprise because He already knew it would happen.
He can see the whole picture, so from His point of view why shouldn’t we just put our trust in Him and let Him show us the way.
God always wants the very best for you, even though His Best might be different from your best.
As I look back over my life, I can see that what I thought best was not usually best at all. I would have settled for something mediocre and boring and thought it great because I didn’t know better. I wouldn’t trade the times I have truly walked with God and allowed Him to use me in a mighty way.
Then I think, “Why is it still sometimes hard to totally put my trust in Him when I can’t see all of what He is up to?” I guess the human in me wants to continually go back to my comfort zone and stay there. At least I feel I am in control of things there, even though I am really not.
As long as you feel you can do it yourself and TRY to do it yourself, why should God intervene and use you to do supernatural things? You only have a limited knowledge of His plan, and can’t see into the future to make the best decisions.
I don’t know about you, but I want to see the invisible, believe the incredible, and receive the impossible.
