Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed by God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. Hebrews 11:1-3
Any time you choose to trust God, even when your circumstances appear contrary to your hopes, you are exercising and establishing your faith.
I’ve had many times when the Lord spoke to me about what He was going to do in my life. But then, as troubling challenges arose, I would think. How in the world can this happen? Then the Lord would say to me “Are you going to believe what you see, or are you going to trust Me?” So, as difficult as it was, I would make the decision to believe Him rather than what I could see. “To walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7) And every time, I was blessed to experience the Father’s astounding presence and provision.
I can say without a shadow of a doubt that you will never go wrong waiting on God. You will never be disappointed when you trust Him to make a way for you, regardless of how your circumstances appear. And when you make the choice to believe Him, He will grow your faith in awesome ways.
