~ "I can see for miles in the darkness..."
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (Heb 11:1)
I know that God has a plan for me. How do I know? My faith! For me, its the same faith I have that the sun will rise every morning - I just know! Some days are a bit cloudy and dark, but it's always there. The same is true for God. He may not always give me what I want, but he knows my needs and will continue to provide for me. When his blessings do come, they are greater than anything I could possibly have imagined.
Jesus is human! He knows our hearts desires better than we do. In all that we do, he is there. He loves us and guides us and reminds us that he has paid the price for our sins (even the ones we have yet to commit). He knows our strengths and our weaknesses and loves us anyway! He knows our passions (especially those that are about HIS work) and continues to strengthen us as we defend his name. He will never let us down (even when we feel alone). It is our faith that forces us to continue to move forward and not return to the emptiness we felt before he claimed our hearts! It is our faith that causes us to take one more step when we are so tired and want to give up and give in.
Have that faith in what you hope for and it will become a reality. It's been promised!
