Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrew 11:1
Sometimes we worry about what will happen next. We forget how it feels to TRUST in God’s guiding. We allow worry to make us forget we are held by the power of love. And we need to be reminded why our Father is FAITHFUL.
Jesus met a man on His way to Jerusalem. Bartimaeus sat on the side of the road calling for the Savior. He was blind and could not see. But his voice was powerful! And in the midst of a noisy crowd, he didn’t allow “be quiet” to silence him. He yelled for mercy and grace.
Jesus revealed the love of His faithfulness and performed a miracle. Bartimaeus received his sight. He was able to see! He was healed because he BELIEVED. In grateful offerings of praise, he chose to follow Jesus. And those who witnessed the miracle, praised our mighty God!
God uses circumstances to demonstrate the power of His love. He is our Protector. When we are blinded by the lack of faith, He opens our eyes to TRUST. He moves us through dreaded doubt and cradles us in care. He reminds us to hold on tight and BELIEVE He will handle EVERY single thing.
When the future is unclear, we must seek the One who longs to strengthen our hearts and bandage our wounds. We mustn’t allow fear to rob our hope. God will move us when He's ready. In the timing of His will, He will help us remain FAITHFUL to remember He knows what’s best for our lives.
God will guide and provide! In the presence of peace, He will lead us toward a place of calm. We must believe God is who He says He is; FAITHFUL! And we must be FAITHFUL to Him. He is handling our days. He will provide hope for the future and give us strength while He skillfully works to restore us.
Dear God, Thank you for Jesus. We recognize the power of Your will, as we consider the many miracles He performed. We will TRUST in You, as You demonstrate the love of Your faithfulness and remember who is handling EVERY single thing. Help us remain FAITHFUL, so we will put our HOPE in YOU and never doubt Your ability to know what is best for our lives. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for loving us through the worry of our wonder. Amen
