But God doesn't work that way does He? For if He did it would not be necessary to excercise faith in our lives. And our Christian walk ~ our very existence as a Christian would not be based upon what it should be ~ F-A-I-T-H.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). We have faith that God is God ~ that Jesus really is Jesus ~ that the Holy Spirit is truly with us. We have faith that our Lord is going to keep His promises ~ that He is going to walk each step of our journey with us ~ holding our hand and lifting us up ~ that He is going to come back for us someday ~ that He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords ~ that there truly is victory in Jesus.
Faith ~ a small word that means so much to us. And, so, today I won't be receiving a literal letter or a road map or a text message from God ~ but I do have faith that He will show me through His Word ~ through His Holy Spirit ~ through the guidance of godly men and women ~ "what to do and where to go and how to get there."
Have you ever heard the old hymn Open My Eyes That I May See? How appropriate for a morning such as this ~
Open my eyes that I may see
Glimpses of truth Thou has for me
Place in my hands the wonderful key
That should unclasp and set me free.
Silently now I wait for Thee
Ready my God, Thy will to see
Open my eyes, illumine me
Open my eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law
