Real Faith

Standard

God says, “Come this way.”

We say, “Sure; just show me where I’m going.”

God replies, “Just follow me.”

We counter with, “But, where am I going?”

 

Faith doesn’t question God’s instruction. It follows willingly, despite an unseen destination. But, you know us. We have to be able to see where we’re going, otherwise we take issue with the journey. I think that’s why God gave us Hebrews 11:1 which says,

“Now faith is the assuranceĀ of things hoped for, the conviction of things unseen.”

He was reminding us to trust in him, and not in what we can or cannot see with our own eyes. Even when it looks like everything is falling down around us, God guides our steps. We just have to trust in his divine plan.

His ways are not our ways. What we see as disaster, he often uses as opportunity to show us who he really is. Each time we follow him through the storms of life, we’re exhibiting real faith.
