I think we would all agree that amongst the many uncertainties in life; one thing is certain, life is filled with challengers. We are surrounded by some form of challenge daily. If you are not facing or have never faced any challenges, would you please contact me. There are soo many things I would like to know.
Certainty is the firm conviction in someone or something; it is the truth, confidence, assurance, reliability of what is seen and therefore known. Faith on the other hand is the complete trust, confidence, hopefulness, reliance that is placed in someone or something before it is seen.
I don't know about you, but my ability to get a good nights rest not just sleep and wake up each morning and face the day comes from faith. I have come to realise -
I believe that our external senses gives us certainty and this is what aids our survival, yet it is our internal senses that give us faith and aids our living. When we are able to be fully aware, externally and internally we position ourselves to a life of thriving.
Now according to the Bible our sense of hearing is important in the activation of faith. Therefore, we need to listen with intent. I believe we fail to understand or comprehend the options we have in life and how to choose wisely because we fail to listen. Instead we hear what we want, interpret it to our liking and respond to what benefits us at the time because we act our of certainty rather than faith. Hence we believe that we don't have what it takes to move mountains, part seas, kill giants, walk on water, follow passions or to choose life.
My encouragement to you today is, whatever you are facing in life; choose to move with faith one step at a time and one day at a time being certain that God is with you and He loves you.
