Today, I saw some things that would be hard for me to believe had I not seen them for myself. For example, when I got home from work, I saw a chihuahua in my yard wearing a coat. I don’t have a chihuahua, and, thanks to Taco Bell, I always envisioned them in sombreros. I also came upon a herd of pilot trucks and police escorts surrounding a rocket ship on the highway. The last time I looked, rocket ships were in the sky not northbound on the highway.
With that being said, these things had me looking twice with my own eyes for my mind to fully accept them. These were actual things in front of my face, so to speak. Yet, the Bible wants me to believe in things far more adventurous than my encounters today, things I have never seen before, wholeheartedly and without doubt.
This is done with a tool we call faith. 2 Corinthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith and not by sight.” Not everyone has the same amount of faith. Not all grocery sacks can handle a gallon of milk without ripping…and some can hold the milk plus more. So, how strong our faith is depends on how much we nurture it. Romans 10:17 tells us how to grow in faith, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Reading God’s word and talking to Him daily will strengthen our faith.
The strong-faithed believe what God’s word says, without seeing and without doubt. We are instructed to! Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” If you are running low on faith and your heart is heavy with what-ifs, worry, and concern (if the bag is ripping and the milk is about to hit the parking lot) I encourage you to continue to read God’s word and pray about it. Strengthen your faith and put your trust in Him. “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 ♥
