|So what is Faith really?|
|My friend Debbie has been doing these great posts that I want to pass along to you.|
A few weeks ago I took the picture above while hanging out at the North Shore. For those that aren't familiar, this is Waimea Bay and this is "THE ROCK" that everyone jumps off of... ummm.... except for me!!!! Anyhow, I thought to myself, "wha...t incredible faith these people have in the water below them". My goodness... all the what if's go through my head every time I see someone do this. What if there are rocks below and they hit them.... what if they land wrong and break their back.... what if.... !!! So what is faith really? At it's basic form it is trusting and believing in something, right? SO how does this pic apply to a spiritual challenge? I think it applies in this way.... we can not know the future, we can not know how we will overcome certain situations when they come our way... we just can't. And many times, that causes us to lose hope... but when we have FAITH in God and the saving grace of our Lord Jesus to know that He has it.. even when we are unsure of what is to come, then we CAN take the leap and plunge into the peace that surpasses all understanding. So, whatever is going on in your life today, have faith and know that God has it and works all things out for your good. And ultimately, have faith in the fact the Jesus Christ died for you and has freed you from your sins.
