Sees the Invisible

Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].For by this [kind of] faith the men of old gained [divine] approval. By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Another word for faith is trust.

When Jehovah makes a promise to us we may not see its fruition for years or indeed even decades. We trust our Lord at His word.

I cannot count the number of times Jehovah has accomplished incredible things in my life and through my life. Many times I would stand back in awe and wonder at how some of these things were accomplished.

Now there is no wonder but there is still incredible awe at just what my Heavenly Father accomplishes in my life and through my life. It never ceases to amaze me.

There have been many times when the Lord made a promise to me only for me to inform Him that that is not possible. It has taken numerous years to accept the fact that nothing is impossible for Him. Now I wait in anticipation not that He will do it but I want to see the magnificent manner in which He will do it. Our God is truly an amazing God.

“Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible, and receives the impossible.” — Corrie ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi (You are the God who sees) for Your omniscient, council in every aspect of my life as You instill in me a stronger and stronger faith in You my loving Tutor. I extol Thee in the name of the best teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

He Can Do the Impossible.

faith in the future

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13New King James Version

Have you ever been given a “mission impossible” by Jehovah?

You know, when He asks you to do something and you do not have the recourses to do it, skill to do it or experience to do it.

More than once I accused Jehovah of being crazy. You want me to do what? Are You crazy? You want me to go where? Are You crazy?

The thing is though, He always starts me out with small tasks. As I am more and more obedient to Him and reliant upon Him to provide for the task to be completed He gives me more challenging tasks

That may not sound too inviting in our do as little as possible and demand as much as possible world but the bonus is that the more obedient we are to our Master (if Jesus is our King then we are His servants) the more He reveals just how awesome and amazing He is. This creates a more respectful, awestruck and loving heart towards Him and we develop a strong loving relationship with Him.

Wow, what an incredible bonus huh?

“God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible what a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves.” A. W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with amazing adventures as I am Your obedient child in which You always provide for me. Thank you that this blesses me with a deer understanding, love and respect for You my cherished Heavenly Father. I exalt You in the name of my awesome King Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
