To have faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things. It is to hope for things which are not seen but which are true. When we go to sleep at night we believe, therefore we have faith that the morning will come. For some faith is hoping that your car will start and how many times do we say to ourselves ‘i hope i get to work on time’ or ‘i hope the traffic wont be too bad’? Sometimes we recieve just what we have asked for but sometimes we dont. Does that mean that God didnt hear? No it doesnt. It just means that today our faith in Him needs a little tweak.
I know that Jesus the Christ lives. I know He is the Son of God born of an earthly mother. That His promises are sure that he will do all that He can for me for all of us. Jesus will stand has a mediator between heaven and earth. That one day we will feel ourselves blessed to kneel at His feet and touch just the hem of his garment. He will do for me that which i cannot do for myself and take upon Him my sins. My sins may be many but i hope they will never be great.
Often we search for God in lofty places and by lofty means and when we dont find Him, we say He doesnt exist. However we need to look in the small places. A tiny flower, a baby hand, a child’s laugh an old man’s face. Step out of the world for just a moment and there He will be. In your deepest, darkest, lonely places i know He will come and give comfort but do not wait for when you are desperately in need take today to find Him and the rest of your life to know Him. I know you will not be wasting your time because what you will find will be of great value to you and everyone else you meet along your life’s journey. Ask and you shall recieve, seek and you will find, knock and it shall be opened unto you. Not just the mysteries of the earth but also the mysteries of the heavens.
May you learn many things on your journey but never give up hope.
