Sometimes, as we go through life, our faith can falter. We may start off full of passion and dreams believing that God is able to bring every single one to pass. However, it is easy to lose heart when things turn out differently than we had hoped for. We often find people and things to distract us so that we can ignore what’s deep in our hearts to accomplish.
As we come to God in prayer, worship and reading of the Word, we come into the presence of the God of Possibilities. Jesus told His disciples, “…with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26).” When we choose to trust God with our heart, rather than believing what we see with our eyes, we open the door to God’s supernatural power.
Fatih is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Those who came before us set the example of right believing. Abraham by faith went to a land he did not know, for He was looking for a city whose architect was God (Hebrews 11:10). By faith Sarah received the ability to conceive even after the proper time of life, because she believed that He who had promised was faithful (Hebrews 11:11).
By faith Moses’ parents hid him, so he could live despite the King’s edict, refusing to be afraid of Pharaoh. By faith Moses as an adult refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to endure ill-treatment with the people of God than enjoy the passing pleasures of sin. By faith he left Egypt, he trusted God’s leading over the King’s wrath. By faith Moses followed God’s instructions in performing the first passover, sprinkling the innocent blood of the lamb, so the Israelites would escape the destroyer. By faith he crossed the Red Sea leading the people of God on dry land, while seeing the Egyptians drowned behind him (Hebrews 11:23-29).
When we choose to follow the leading of God, we can have faith that God is with us. We may meet opposition, challenges and disappointments along the way but there is absolutely nothing that can stop our dreams from coming to pass when we choose to trust God and not give up. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we can hope, think or ask (Ephesians 3:20). He is on our side (Romans 8:31), and He is tirelessly at work behind the scenes bringing everything we hope for to pass in His timing. When we commit our plans to God, they will succeed (Proverbs 16:3). There is not anything in the universe that is too small or too big for our God.
