What is faith? I watched an episode of House MD where they treated a “faith healer” who is used by God to heal the sick. Of course House does not believe in such things and calls him a lunatic. One of the things he says: “faith is ignorance”. Well how would you live without faith? we need to have faith in different aspects of our lives. We need to have faith that the next time we take a breath there will be oxygen, we need faith that when we sit on a chair it will hold us up, we need faith that when we cross a bridge it won’t crumble. It is impossible to live life without faith.
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” – 1 Corinthians 1:18
For people who have not received Jesus, the word of God is foolishness. It is only through the holy spirit can their eyes be opened to the truth. However for us who have been saved it it the power of God. We have that power, which is why we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Not by our own might, but by the power of God.
When we put our faith in God, we are not relying on what we can do, we like to be in control, but we need to let go and let God do His work in our lives. When we go to the beach, it’s comfortable to just walk along the shore because we have full control, but when we go further into the water until we are no longer touching the sand, we have much less control and the waves begin to dictate where we go.
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” – Hebrews 11:6
Allow God to take the reins of your life. See what He sees, not what you see.
Lord take my life and use it for your glory, thank you God that you have an awesome plan for my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
