Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Heb 11:1
I am sure you are staying.
We are supposed to believe for miracles. What are miracles? Things most unlikely to happen. Which is more likely: That she would stay or that she would leave? It is easier to believe she is going because that is natural. But where is God’s hand in that?
Why won’t you declare with me that she will stay?! Do you doubt God will come through for the very thing He promised her before she even left for Adelaide?
Which is God more likely to do, the possible and natural, or the impossible and supernatural? In which case would God’s name be glorified?! If she stays or if she goes?!
Why do we say, “Whatever happens happens? Que sera, sera. If you go, it’s the Lord’s will. If you stay, Hallelujah, it’s the Lords will”?
If that is true; that it took no effort to have faith, why the heck are we told to fight the good fight of faith?! Why are we called prayer warriors??! Why are we asked to stand firm in the faith if it is something that does not waver?!
God is not a man that He should lie. Don’t mock Him by being lukewarm. You insult His intelligence when you think He doesn’t know that you can’t decide if He will come through or not.
We disrespect God by [idly] going through the motions. Either you believe everything God says, or nothing at all.
There is a fence. Either you believe with absolute conviction He will come through or don’t.
Que sera sera won’t cut it.
When I couldn’t decide, He reached out His hand to catch mine and asked me,
“You of little faith, why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:31
Now that I have chosen a side, I say to the lovely woman praying with me:
“Remember His marvellous works that He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth. Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering. So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised. For in just a very little while, He who is coming will come and will not delay. But my righteous one will live by faith. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
