Knowing That He Will

by | Mar 3, 2015 | Love God

“Faith is not believing God can, it is knowing that He will.”

This quote hangs in our laundry room.

I seem to spend much time in that room, and it reminds me often of where my faith lies.

Friend, what is faith to you?

What is your faith in?

Faith isn’t so much about what it is, as it is Who it’s in.

I believe God can do anything. All I need to do is look in the pages of scripture and read with my own eyes of His all-powerful, all-knowing, all-trustworthy, all-faithful track record.

For goodness’ sake, the same God who parted the Red Sea is the same God we worhsip today.

He can do anything.

Then why, on a day-to-day basis, do I forget?

Why, when I have a huge deadline lurking around the corner, I stress about getting it done?

Why, when I have a graduation party to plan, a grant to write, a recognition event to organize, meetings to schedule, people to meet, evaluations to complete, all in the next eight weeks that I become as “a deer in headlights?”

And why, when life gets unpredictable, and the news is unfavorable, and the schedule becomes upside-down, I forget Who’s holding the world in the palm of His hand?

I forget. Even after I’ve prayed.

Even with the quote hanging in our bathroom.

Faith is not believing God can, it is knowing that He willWhen the Almighty God is our God, we not only believe He can, we can believe He will.

God loves His own. He knows what’s best for us. He’s with us and will never leave us. He has plans and purposes for each of us. And when our hearts seek after Him, we can believe and trust in His perfect will.

Because of our faith in Who He is…

When we pray, we know He’ll answer.

When we feel alone, we know He’s with us.

When we’re struggling, we know He’s our Helper.

When we’re overwhelmed, we know He’s the Calmer of our hearts.

We know He will.

Today, my friend, I encourage you to remember.

Remember Who your faith is in. Remember Who’s your God. Remember all He’s done. Remember He has you, He holds you, and He loves you. Remember.

And trust He will.

Blessings,

Julie

    Good morning from you neighbor on Purposeful Faith. Absolutely beautiful Julie. I’m looking for a beautiful quote to go in my laundry room. Your words are so true. Thanks for the reminder on those daily things and what I should be doing instead of worrying about those schedules that have to be turned upside down.
