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 finding strength. We become weak and need to be reminded GOD IS FAITHFUL. He handles what happens even when life is unfair.
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 and was able to see! He was healed because he BELIEVED. In grateful offerings of praise, he chose to follow Jesus. Those who witnessed the miracle, praised our mighty God!
God uses circumstances to demonstrate the power of His love. When we're blinded by lack of faith, He opens our eyes to focus on Jesus. He moves us through dreaded doubt and navigates bumps in the road. He reminds us to hold on tight and remember we are valued and loved.
When the future is unclear, we must seek the One who longs to strengthen our hearts. We mustn’t let fear rob our hope of what's to come. God will move us when He's ready. In the timing of His will, He will help us remain FAITHFUL and remember who WILL ALWAYS take care of us and those we love.
God will prepare us for what will happen next. He already knows where we will arrive. We must believe God IS who He says He is and be FAITHFUL to Him. He will help us be patient while He skillfully completes His GOOD work in our lives.
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 help us remember 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! We will be faithful to YOU and TRUST in the plans You have for each one of us. Amen
