Faith: Controlling our circumstances vs surrendering of that control.
I spent a better part of today thinking about a project I’m desiring to pursue but I almost gave up when I realized the length I have to go to have it start.
I quickly realized how we desire to control our circumstances and get things done and the place of Faith: how faith is a surrendering of such control.
Again I noted how we naturally tend to rebel against Faith by trying to figure it out.
But what’s Faith? Scriptures in Hebrew defines it as an assurance of something you hope for. Assurance that you’ll receive or achieve what you are hoping for.
Take a look; when you are unwell, you go to a doctor who possibly you don’t know, he gives you a prescription you can not read, take med from a pharmacist you can’t see and take the meds you know nothing about the chemical composition. You trust the doc, You trust and have hope on the process .
Faith is not based on feeling neither is it being optimistic. So, it’s an encouragement to you if you’re pursuing something and you’re feeling like me, want to give up or want to be in control of circumstances; develop Faith, trust the process. Genuine Faith encourage people and Endures unanswered prayers.
It’s just a matter of time
