Day 28: Faith Sees


What is FAITH?

You can't SEE HIM,

but you BELIEVE HE IS THERE.

What is TO BELIEVE?

You can't SEE HIM,

but you KNOW HE IS THERE.

What is TO KNOW?

You can't SEE HIM,

but

you FOLLOW HIM anyway.

FAITH

is the foundation of

FAITH.

You stand on the edge of the cliff.

You SEE a starving alligator

waiting for you in the turbulent waters.

GOD tells you to JUMP,

as you hear HIS WORDS~

"TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART".*

You are paralyzed in

FEAR

because you BELIEVE that there is no way you can

TRUST

anyone right now,

except the alligator whose opened mouth you SEE.

BUT FAITH

TRUSTS with your ALL.

Then you hear the words,

"LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING"*.

Well, all you KNOW right now is your

OWN UNDERSTANDING~

that if you JUMP you will be greeted by

the sharp teeth of the alligator.

You are still paralyzed in FEAR.

BUT then you hear the words,

"IN ALL YOUR WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM".*

Now you are really paralyzed in DOUBT,

because you don't BELIEVE that if you acknowledge that

GOD is in this moment

HE would save you.

BUT what if you did

BELIEVE HIM?

So you say HIS name.

And then you hear the words,

"AND HE SHALL DIRECT YOUR PATHS"

*(Proverbs 3:5-6).

Hmm.

DIRECT YOUR PATH

that is a downward motion into

the mouth of an alligator.

FAITH TRUSTS

DESPITE WHAT IS SEEN

by

BELIEVING THE ONE WHO IS NOT SEEN

BUT SEES YOU.

Do you JUMP?

What is GOD asking you to

TRUST HIM WITH ALL YOUR HEART,

by NOT LEANING ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING,

by ACKNOWLEDGING HIM IN ALL THINGS,

because HE WILL DIRECT YOUR PATHS.

HMM.

JUMP,

as it is worth the trip

because

the alligator

has no power in the

PRESENCE OF GOD.

For you would never be destroyed by the alligator

because GOD

would meet you in the air~

"But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint"

(Isaiah 40:31).

FAITH

BELIEVES BEYOND SEEING.

FAITH

KNOWS BEYONE YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING

because

FAITH

FOLLOWS THE ONE

who is the

GIVER OF FAITH.

Now there is a slight change that when you jump

you could be eaten by the alligator,

but if GOD is asking you to jump

to a place where you may get some teeth marks,

FAITH will get you

beyond the pain

because

GOD WILL BE with you

ALL THE WAY

and HIS PLAN is beyond the temporary teeth marks~

"Now to HIM who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to HIS power that is at work within us"

(Ephesians 3:20).

I want HIS IMMEASURABLY MORE,

but how will I ever know unless

I take the leap of FAITH

that gets me there.

So let's JUMP together ,

because

"FAITH SEES"

(listen to the song below)
