Do you ever feel like you’re waiting and waiting and waiting yet see no sign of God moving in your situation? It’s hard to hold on in those situations when all seems hopeless, but we can trust God to be faithful. We must remember “faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” [Hebrews 11:1] If we were able to see everything playing out before us, faith would not be required. The foundation of faith is trust. Even when we aren’t able to see a way out¸we can trust in the One who is always able[Ephesians 3:20].
We can put our faith in Christ, because He has proven Himself faithful [Deuteronomy 7:9, 32:4; Psalm 33:4; and 2 Thessalonians 3:3]. One of the greatest ways to gain strength in difficult or frustrating times is to look back and remember the times the Lord has been faithful in our past. Henry Blackaby calls these times spiritual markers. They are the times in your life when you needed God to show up or you’d sink and He did. It also helps to recall times the Lord has been faithful in other’s lives. As we saw yesterday, testimony builds faith in the one giving the testimony and in the listener.
Acts 27:25 says “So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as He told me.” We can trust in what God tells us. When He says He will do something, He will [1 Thessalonians 5:24]. When He opens a door, no one can close it [Revelations 3:8]. We can rest in His promises!
If it looks impossible, then you can rest assured the Lord is in it. He likes to deal in the impossible [Matthew 19:26, Mark 10:27 and Luke 18:27]. If it didn’t look impossible, then anyone could do it.
What looks impossible in your life right now? Bring your impossible to the God of possibility and watch Him work. It may seem like its taking forever, but as my mama used to say “Good things come to those who wait.”
