My Faith is InsufficientMonday, February 27, 2017
I'm really glad that God doesn't require big faith in Him because I'd be in serious trouble. Most of the time, I am weak, worried, and frazzled. I really have to work hard not to be anxious...to remember to be grateful for every blessing, not focusing on what I still need.
When I was younger, I was so into the wrong things and I didn't think of the future. I wasn't thinking someday I would want to own a home or save for retirement. I wanted the thrills right then! Boy, if my future self could have gone back in time to warn my past self, like in Star Trek...I wonder if I would still have followed the same path. But when you get older and you know you haven't accomplished the basics, your faith that things can change is shaky.
What I'm thankful for is that to believe in Jesus doesn't take as much faith as it is to change my livelihood. He says, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." ~ Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV)
I love that scripture, it's comforting for the heavy heart. Even when I make a mess and end up laying in the muck I created, God still has mercy and my faith doesn't need to be larger than a mustard seed for Him to show me grace and deliverance. He works miracles in the lives of His children everyday and though my faith is insufficient, His faith in me is sure and steady.
