Day 17: Faith Can


HE is everywhere.

HE is in the hurt.

HE is in the sorrow.

HE is in the whys and whens and hows.

Because HE is IN whatever and wherever we are.

But at times

HE doesn't feel like HE is there.

And you wonder,

"Are you sleeping on the job GOD?".

Because if you were GOD

would you have allowed this or that to happen?

Oh if only we were GOD,

we think we could do it better.

Because

how difficult could it be to part the Red Sea?

I am sure that is what the Israelites forgot~

that "little parting"

when they were tired of being in the desert,

tired of trusting the ONE who parted the Red Sea.

So they did become their own god

by creating their own god

in a shape of a golden calf

while

Moses was talking with GOD on the mountain top

receiving the ten commandments.

For when Moses came down

after his encounter with GOD

can you imagine what he thought?

Well we know what he thought

as his anger broke the tablets GOD had inscribed

and then he burned their little idol of a god.

TRUST in the wrong god never ends well

because there is only one GOD.

What would you have done after

GOD had set your free from slavery

and made a promise to you

that

"I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment.

I will take you as my own people, and I will be your GOD" (Exodus 6:6).

When GOD says I WILL,

HE WILL.

Oh when we take our life in our own hands

when we don't see the hand of GOD in our circumstances.

We know HE is there. We know HE is LOVE.

But don't we forget that HE did set us FREE.

HE has REDEEMED us

because HE is our GOD.

Oh when our FAITH becomes so little

we forget the face of GOD.

Oh I forget when I worship my little god of DOUBT.

For it is in those moments

I forget the big moment

when GOD reached down

in the midst of my wandering

and sent HIS SON

to

set me FREE,

just because GOD said HE WILL.

Oh how we should never forget,

in the midst of our desert times,

that JESUS walked on the water

and so did Peter

until Peter's fear was bigger than his FAITH

and DOUBT had him sink.

BUT did JESUS give up on him~

"Immediately JESUS reached out HIS hand and caught him.

'You of little faith,' HE said,

“why did you doubt?' (Matthew 14:22)".

The same JESUS who takes our DOUBT

the moment we look up to HIM

before we go to our little gods~

“I believe; help my unbelief” (Mark 9:24).

HIS hand is always wherever you are

and all HE asks is to remember

the parting of your Red Sea

the moment

JESUS stepped into your life

because HE is still JESUS

and

when GOD says I WILL,

HE WILL

so let's

"BELIEVE FOR IT" (listen to the song below)
