And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. – Hebrews 11:6
Have you ever felt like the thing God was telling you to do was really crazy? I remember a time when God spoke to me to give away all my birthday money. That was hard to do! I was trying to save up my money to buy a new drumset, and I was well on my way toward saving for it. And then God did something crazy! He told me to give all my money away.
Of course, I struggled with that idea. I didn’t want to be even farther away from my goal of getting my drumset. Yet, I knew that God loved me and I knew that He wouldn’t tell me to give away my money to be mean or keep me from getting the thing I wanted so badly.
So I took my birthday money to the church and put it in the offering. Man, that was hard!
And then I kind of forgot about it. I forgot all about the money and just went about doing the things I’d always done. One day, a lady at our church came up to me and gave me a check for the full amount of money I needed to buy my drums. I was so excited.
God had come through for me. I had trusted God with my money and God came through for me even when it seemed crazy.
That’s what faith is. Faith sees God as bigger than the facts. The facts might say that something isn’t possible. However, faith holds on to what God says above all else!
Today’s Challenge: Hold Onto What God says above all else
God cares about you. He loves you and He responds to those who seek Him. So today challenge yourself to believe God’s love. Believe He cares for you and about you. Trust Him and realize that your faith in Him will keep you going even if it seems bigger than the facts.
