Light of Things hoped for…

I, like most people, want to find and follow the plan of God for my life. I have found that often it is hard to see the supernatural leading of God through the natural world we live in.

It says in Hebrews 11:1-31 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for.

3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

It is easy to look at the current situation and lose hope. Faith is that assurance when we don’t see past the current mess we are in. Verse 3 says the universe was formed at God’s command from nothing (things unseen).

Just imagine what personal universe He is forming for you, if you will just by faith understand or KNOW that he CAN create a beautiful universe out of the unseen.

And that gives us hope for and assurance of what we do not see…YET!

It is easy to look at the “faith chapter” and say “see we need to have faith”.

 But what does that mean?

In Psalms 136 the writer tells the story of the Israelites coming out of Egypt and their journey in the wilderness. But before he starts talking about their journey he says,

“1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
2 Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.

4 to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures forever.”

In our journey to the Promised Land we need to remember; before we see the beautiful universe and the great wonders He has in store for us, we must honor Him first. This is the act of our “By Faith” having hope and assurance that He won’t let us stay in the place we are. Just as the Israelites were brought out of their situation of death and slavery; He will lead us forth to the promised land of blessing and comfort.

I hope this encourages you; it has been encouraging to me as I write it and grow in trusting God in my situations.

God Bless!
