    In God We Trust


    To trust where we cannot trace God is the ultimate test of our willingness to follow Him. There are times in every believer's life when God requires him to step out into the unknown--to take a leap of faith--to go out on a limb. These occasions almost always defy our ability to reason and to make sense of it all.

    Abraham faced a similar predicament when he was commanded by God to go to a foreign country leaving behind all the securities and familiarity his homeland had offered. Hebrews 11:8 records that "By faith Abraham . . . obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going." And later he was commended by God for His unswerving faith despite the overwhelming obstacles that he faced. Reverend Charles Inwood wrote that "When God is going to do something wonderful, he begins with a difficulty." . . . When he is going to do something miraculous, "He begins with an impossibility." God loves to defy odds, accomplish the impossible, operate in the supernatural, and amaze us with His creativity and power. We serve a big God---not one that is confined and limited to our understanding and our ability to figure out His ways. A
    God so awesome, and so infinitely capable of accomplishing His will in our lives, deserves our trust and obedience. If He could create the world in 6 short days, He can certainly figure out how to work out the details of your life and order your steps appropriately.

    Today God is calling you to step out in faith and trust Him. Psalm 31:15 says, "My times are in your hands." Rest assured that God has you in His hands and if you know Him as your Savior He won't let go of you. Someone once said "To have a testimony you first need to have a test." Don't fear or shrink back from what God has appointed you to do. Today is the day of decision. God is asking you to believe that His power will equip you for what you are called to do. If He didn't think you were ready He would not have chosen you. The God who sees the beginning from the end, knows that this time of trusting Him in the midst of your doubts and fears is necessary preparation for upcoming blessings and the manifestation of His power. Romans 8:18 says, "Our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us." And that is a promise you can count on!
