Faith


Our small group is studying Chasing Daylight by Erwin McManus. Tonight we talked about uncertainty and what faith really is. McManus says "Faith is the ability to know that God can be trusted." Sometimes God requires different levels of faith for different tasks. For example, what is the difference in the faith required in the crossing of the Red Sea vs the crossing of the Jordan River? With Moses, God parted the water and they crossed. They watched God at work. With Joshua, the people became a part of the miracle. They were told to step into the water and when they did, the water dried up.

No matter what God is calling us to.....we must do so in faith. Sometimes this will mean we need to take action. Other times, it means we need to just be still and know that He is God. Hebrews 11 is filled with heroes of the FAITH. They believed God. God CAN be trusted. Why do I ever doubt?
