Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrew 11:1
Sometimes we question what will happen next and wonder how God will choose to guide us. We have difficulty seeing what’s ahead and need to be reminded to gratefully TRUST.
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 couldn't see. But his voice was powerful! 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 Bartimaeus received his sight! 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 in our lives to demonstrate the power of His greatness. When we’re blinded by a lack of FAITH, He arms us with STRENGTH. He helps us remember who IS working for the GOOD and fills us with needed PEACE.
When the future is unclear, we must seek the One who strengthens our love and stop diminishing HOPE. God will help us remain faithful. He will show us how to persevere and move us past corners of doubt.
God will lead us toward a place of wholeness and we will recognize life is so much easier when we put our FAITH in Him. HE is HERE and HE loves us. Every moment of time spent together will lead us to a prayer of praise and MOVE us where we belong; safe in the arms of His holiness.
Dear God, Thank you for Jesus! We recognize the power of Your will, as we consider the miracles He performed. We will TRUST in YOU and welcome the LOVE of Your faithfulness. We will be reminded who IS with us EVERY moment of our lives. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
