faith.Posted: August 4, 2011
Sometimes I catch myself putting God in a box.. I guess because my mind really can’t even come close to grasping His power.. I’m not really sure how this happens when the Bible is FULL of examples of His power.. But regardless I find myself doubting that He really can heal someone with stage 4 cancer, or answer our prayers that seem outrageous… God is in this box where anything we ask for outside the confines of that box are just a shot in the dark… And then I read these verses.
Ephesians 3:20-21 which says “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, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Why can’t I just trust that fully??
And Matthew 17:20 says “I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Nothing.. That means nothing. SO cool. Now I just have to believe it and live and pray like I believe it.
I was driving to work today listening to Christy Nockels, “Waiting Here For You”. The first verse says,
“If faith can move the mountains
Let the mountains move
We come with expectation
Waiting here for You”
I started thinking about the faith that we’re called to have and thinking about this story I read yesterday. It’s a blog I read by a girl I don’t know. Her story touched my heart though and I hope it touches yours too.. I want to have the faith she has.. What an awesome God we serve!
