365 Days of Growing Together
Hi WR2W, I want to encourage us today to JUST HAVE FAITH. I believe the teachings of faith are so important and exactly what we need. Without faith, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6) and every day of our life, we should be living to please Him. I can tell you from experience, without faith there is no true peace, and without faith, we could never accept the will of God. The will of God is whatever God has ordained to happen and nothing we have control over. Are you ready to accept the things you cannot change and surrender to His will? I hope today you make the choice to say Yes to His will and No to your own.
I am sure most of us know the definition of faith provided in Hebrew 11:1(KJV), “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” The word Now is an attention-grabbing word. For instance, when we want to get someone’s attention we may say: “Now, look a here” or “Now, let me tell you something.” This is what God is telling us, “Now, let me tell you about My faith that only I can give. It is the substance/confidence of things you all hope for/expect/anticipate that will happen if it is in My will, I promised it, and you believe I have the power to bring it to pass at the appointed time.
WR2W, as Christians, we must have faith in God and trust His timing instead of trying to force His timing! God does not want us to know everything that is going to happen in our life, what is going to happen, when it is going to happen (month, day, year, and time), where it is going to happen, why it is going to happen, and how it is going to happen. If we knew these things, would there be a reason to expect the unexpected? Most importantly, would there be a God to Glorify? We are so busy focusing on the What, When, Where, Why, and How that we have lost the Faith! It is time for us to stop looking for man to make us at ease in the things God has promised and time for us to JUST HAVE FAITH! If God promised it, He will deliver it in His Perfect Time!!! Man’s time is not perfect, we may be off by years, months, days, hours, minutes, and/or seconds but God’s appointed time is JUST THAT — ON TIME; all we need to do is JUST HAVE FAITH! I love each of you, be blessed, be encouraged, and be true!
