Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrew 11:1
Sometimes we feel weary as we journey ahead. We question what will happen next and have trouble remembering to TRUST. But we need to be reminded GOD IS FAITHFUL. He handles everything that happens, even when life is unfair. He knows how to handle our days and help us learn to trust in Him. He reminds us why He is faithful.
Jesus met a man on His way toward 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! In in the midst of the noisy crowd, he did NOT 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. When we're blinded by the lack of faith, He opens our eyes to TRUST. He moves us through dreaded doubt and navigates bumps in the road. He reminds us to hold on tight and be FAITHFUL.
When the future is unclear, we must seek the One who longs to strengthen our hearts. We mustn’t allow fear to rob the hope of what's to come. God will always move us when He's ready. In the timing of His will, He will help us remain FAITHFUL and remember who knows what's best for our lives.
God will guide and provide. He will ready us to step ahead and prepare us for what will happen next. He will lead us toward a place of calm. We must believe God IS who He says He is and we must be FAITHFUL to Him. He IS handling our days. He will give us hope for the future and help us learn to be patient while He skillfully works to complete His will in our days.
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 be reminded who's in charge of our days. We will put our HOPE in You and never doubt Your ability to know what's best for our lives. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
