Morning Meditation – In What You Cannot See

“And without faith it is impossible to please God…” (Hebrews 11:6)

As a child, every one of us dreams of a special identity…but rarely do we arrive at our original vision.  Do you all remember saying one of these lines: “I want to be a firefighter…I dream of being a doctor one day…I’m going to be Superman…”  On and on the list goes—a parade of career choices, and some fantastical ones mixed-in as well, that we want to believe will support the lives to which we would like to grow accustomed.

But…life has an uncanny way of revealing our real gifts.  As we go through the turmoil of growth and trials of various kinds, the true passions of our heart manifest.  We can wish to be Superman all we want, but we’re just not going to develop skills that aren’t real to our ability.  Life will show us that!

So, God calls us to faith.

Faith is not the pursuit of what we see, but the trusting in what God sees.  God may send us in a direction with great favor and grace, but only God is privy to its ultimate destination.  His plan is His plan.  Courageous faith, then, simply begs for my trusting Him more than the application of my talents.

At the end of the day, be driven by your passion.  Use your gifts.  Let vision draw you into your next strategic steps.  And, when it’s all said and done, look around and marvel at what the Lord produced by your faith for results you could not imagine!

Again, the adventure of life is truly in what we cannot see.

    I look at what my “self” says about me and then what the Word of God says about me. It can be as different as night and day! So, in order to get where He is, I believe His Word and apply the scripture, “I speak of things that are not as though they were”. I like His view better than mine 😎

  2. I feel bad for those that do not have Faith, if only they knew and were patient they would find out just how awesome God Is. The last 3 years of my life have been the most challenging I have ever had, without Faith I would never have been able to overcome the obstacles I have faced, I am still facing many of them but I know that my Faith will bring me through the storm. My life was changed completely but I have a new normal now and that is because of the Faith I have in God. Thanks to all of you at Zions River who have been there for me also, and especially Pastor Jim and Lorelei for all your support. I love you all
