Sometimes in the midst of our challenges we get overwhelmed and succumb to the temptation to take things into our own hands. Most likely all of us are facing a challenge in life at this very moment… I know I am. The Lord once again used one of my favorite teachers, Oswald Chambers, to set my thinking in line with my faith. This is just a part of what he wrote, but it speaks volumes.
John 11:40 “Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God.”
“Faith must be tested, because it can be turned into a personal possession only through conflict. What is you faith up against now? The test will either prove that your faith is right, or it will kill it. ‘Blessed is he whosoever shall not be offended in Me’ (Matt 11:6). The final thing is confidence in Jesus. Believe steadfastly on Him and all you come up against will develop your faith. There is continual testing in the life of faith, and the last great test is death. May God keep us in fighting trim! Faith is unutterable trust in God, trust which never dreams that He will not stand by us.”
Yes, faith is unutterable trust in God. Especially when we are facing the most difficult challenges that Satan throws at us the moment we begin acting on something the Lord has asked us to do and our common sense raises its head.
Some solid advice we all need to heed.
