We live in a world that often sees faith as being foolish. But having faith isn't that you expect bad things to go away. It isn't that I see things through rose colored glasses and am ignorant of what is physically in front of me; but rather, that I know my identity [in] Christ. I know who my God is [in His entirety] & I know what His Word says. But having faith doesn't mean that I know how it will turn out - but that whatever happens I trust God & His purpose & plan for my life. Recently, I had a bad mammogram & of course the possibility of cancer was forefront. But the peace that I had could only come from my relationship with God [Father, Son & Holy Spirit]. I suppose that my conversation with God would have sounded very strange to many people - but for me, I understood that it might have been the next assignment that He was calling me to. Why? Because maybe He needed me to be in a place where few could be. Maybe, He needed me to bring LIGHT to other. Maybe, He needed me to speak Truth to someone - yes - even just one. Now, at this moment they believe it is benign but come October we will look at it again just to make sure.
My question is this: Whatever your circumstances-what do you focus on or what ARE you focusing on? Can you only “see” the problem? Or can you "see" your assignment? But what if it's a project? A challenge? Instead of believing that it can be done, do you only see the reasons or obstacles that it can’t?
The source of my life, the very breath I breath has NOTHING to do with my size, my strength or my resources. It has EVERYTHING to do with the power of my ALMIGHTY GOD.
