Because of Faith

Today, I whispered to the Lord, “I want to do what You want me to do, even when I don’t know what that is. Lord, I will go where You want me to go, even when I don’t know where.”

There have been times I have not known precisely know what it is God has for me and have found, it is a journey to discover. It is a faith journey.

As I take blind steps in my journey, faith sees me through one day at a time. Living by faith happens one single step at a time - and though I don’t always know where I am going, I know Who I am following. And this is how I know I am going exactly where He is leading me.

I have learned that I cannot expect to know or understand many aspects of the faith journey, or it would not be a faith journey at all. If I could figure it all out on my own, then where is the faith in that? 

Our life journey will happen one step at a time, one day at a time, one prayer at a time and with our faith always engaged. The journey is all about faith and strongly believing we will see God work - not just believing when we see God work.

Before you take your first step each new day, and with every breath you breathe, you are on a journey that holds God’s purpose for your life, and when you see it with your spiritual eyes, the journey will be walked out by faith. Faith will take where you never dreamed you would go and without that faith, you won’t go there.

If we want to please God we must believe Him. We must believe what He teaches us in scripture and use His truths to equip us to live by faith. It is awesome to be able to please a High and Holy God because of faith.

Because of faith I believe, and because of this faith in which I walk every day, I receive His pleasure in me. I can please God….because of faith. 

Hebrews 11:6 
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
