Trusting God In The Eye Of The Storm
DAY 2 OF 5
Living by Faith
The Christian life is all about FAITH. Hebrews 11 says, "faith is being sure of what we hope for, and knowing something is real even if we do not see it." I love this verse because it always brings me comfort when I am in the midst of a season where I'm finding it difficult to hold on. When God has called us to do something, we must believe and act on it. I believe that God delights in those who will follow the call He's placed in the heart, and risk the comfort of everyday life for the Kingdom's sake.
The easiest thing for us to do is doubt. As an emotionally driven people, we often find ourselves in peaks and valleys, caught between hope and despair. It seems as if the journey of life is a constant rollercoaster of highs and lows. It seems that even when we want to move forward with confidence, our flesh continuously wants to resort to the comfort of what we can see, feel, and physically grasp. This can be extremely frustrating because we want to see results and the fruits of our labor quickly.
Are you in a season right now where you feel like nothing exciting is happening for you? Are you feeling alone, hopeless, or discouraged? I have been there and know the feeling! Let me offer you the hope that keeps me going. Jeremiah 29:11 states, "I know the plans that I have for you...plans to prosper you...to give you a future and a hope." If you are feeling discouraged today and are having a hard time believing, just know that God is closer to you than you know.
He is using this season right now to stretch, bend, purify, and refine you into a warrior for the Kingdom. Like grapes that get crushed and pressed and eventually turn into beautiful wine, so our character and faith after the Lord puts us through His refining process. This may require some crushing, pressing, filtering out the junk, and even sitting for a while to mature, but in due season, it's our time to be released! God has a plan for you, and it's probably just around the corner! BELIEVE IT!
