Living in Faith Takes Work
Per scripture, faith is defined as “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Sounds simple enough. The Bible goes on to say, “by faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the Word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible.” That one doesn’t sound simple at all, however, if taken on faith, then it makes perfect sense.
Problem sometimes with “things that are not visible” is that humans tend to not believe or try to explain things away with laws of physics and such. Rules that humans made in their unbelief. Oh, we of little faith! How are we to do the great things that God has put before us if we try only with the rules WE have made, or think we have, because you see it was God put the rules in place in the first place. That is why we say, there is nothing God can’t do.
So maybe we could try a little harder and not place human traits and human obstacles in God’s Way. I swear sometimes we can come up with the lamest reasons and rules about how life is meant to be all because our faith in God’s ways and abilities register about 3 on the scale of 10.
If we are to believe in Jesus as the Christ, and in his being and his deeds then we must believe to a bigger degree that we do. The Man came to earth to show us the Way; the least we can do is try a lot harder than we do in having the faith that he is the Way and stay the Way.
