Easter part 1. Faith.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

(Hebrews 11:1-3, 6 TNIV)

What makes us up (atoms) is held together by something we cannot see.

Do I have faith to believe that what God says is true and do I see things as God does or do I just see it from my perspective?

When I trust that what God says is true and start to look at my mountains from his perspective I know that a mustard seed amount of faith is more then enough to do all I am called to do.

So why do I doubt?

Why do I sway from the truth that everything I am called to do I have the streanghth to do?

Why do I live in fear that I don't have what it takes?

I think for me and most likely others too its because we don't see God correctly.

We don't see him as a all loving, all powerful father we have been warped by poor relections of love and provision.

We also don't see ourselves correctly.

We have been built up and torn down by validating and unvaladating. We don't see that God the all powerful and all knowing one has given us a promise.

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20b NIV)

This promise was given after the great commission was given a mission we would not do alone so I feel the verse fits for other contexts of knowing our God is with us when he calls us to something.

On my journey to the cross this year I felt that God has been asking me to give up some stuff to Him and embrace my calling as a servent and a missionary of his gospel of hope.

That takes great faith, knowing who He is and knowing who he has made me to be.

What is the King asking you to do this Easter?
