I’ve lost a lot of things in my life, but I’ve never lost my faith. I am literally at a place in my life where all I can do is rest on the scripture that assures me that Gods knows that plans He has for me. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
I relized that I almost slip up sometimes, asking God, why and how; yet I’m reminded that He wants to talk to me about His plans for my life. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve ignored His voice, not because I didn’t want to hear Him but because I wasn’t ready to hear Him. I wanted to focus on my flesh and how it was feeling.
Last night, the Spirit of God asked, “After all you and I have been through, how could you not trust me?” and reminded me that we’ve been through too much! It was time for me to exercise my FAITH and begin to TRUST GOD, not with what I can see, but trust Him with what I can’t! The Word of God declares, Hebrews 11:1,”Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (NKJV) The UNSEEN! Family, trust and believe that God is working behind the scenes, and He’s making no mistakes. I know the answer will work in my favor, I just need to trust God, rely on His strength through the Holy Spirit, and keep the Faith! God knows right where we are.
