Walking by Faith

walking by faithSometimes following Christ doesn’t make sense.

We have zillions of questions we want answered.

But God just says, “Trust Me.”

We don’t understand.

But God says, “Just follow me.”

Faith is in essence belief in the unseen.

Yet, I tend to want to see how things will work out before I step out.

This is not faith.

“Reckless faith isn’t fake. It doesn’t pretend. It feels deeply and lives fully. It ask questions and cries out. It tests boundaries and has dynamic conversations with God. It molds its understanding as it encounters new situations. God has a plan is a mantra for a way of life that says you don’t have to have all the answers to proceed. You can throw yourself toward the Red Sea and believe if it parts, praise God, You knew it would.” Beth Guckenberger

I’m finding God only shows us one step at a time.

And though I want the full picture, He beckons me to take the next step shown and trust the rest to Him.

This is not easy. This goes against our normal thinking. This contradicts what the world teaches.

Oh, how much easier it is to walk by sight, but this is not what we have been called to do.

So though I don’t understand and though many will probably think I’m crazy.

That’s ok. Because it is what God thinks that matters.

And He say’s “Follow Me, Trust Me, Walk by Faith.”
