FACE THE YEAR IN THE PERSPECTIVE OF FAITH

We are tip-toeing into a new year. You do not know what it will hold for you. God will surely bring great blessings into your life this year. Will you receive them? You will also certainly face great difficulty and heartache. In fact some of the greatest blessings may be wrapped in sorrow and pain. Will you see them? You will only be able to handle whatever happens as you pray and live in the perspective of faith.

Faith will open the insight of your prayers. Hebrews 11:2 tells us that we understand that the universe was created by the word of God so that what is seen is not made out of things that are visible. Will you pray and live in the awareness of the unseen hand of God?

Faith determines the objects of our petitions. Hebrews 11:10 says the patriarchs were seeking a city whose designer and builder is God. They were praying for what only God could do. Hebrews 11:25-26 show us that Moses was not seeking the pleasures of Egypt. He was looking for the real reward.

Faith will encourage the obedience of our prayers. Abraham obeyed when he was called, even though he did not know where he was going. (Heb.11:8)

Faith will strengthen the endurance of our prayers. Moses endured as seeing Him who is invisible. (Heb.11:27) Will you keep on praying when your eyes and logic cannot see what God is doing?

This past year has been a year of faith, writing my journey when I couldn't see where it would lead. Even now I do not know the final outcome, yet with the words of encouragement that we should live by faith only knowing that we have heard the voice of God. Thank you.

Great  post and reminder to keep God at the center of our focus and prayer life.

As women's ministry leader and Bible teacher we will journey through our monthly prayer circle as we intercede on behalf of others, our country and world at large and our own individual " worlds" under the Lord's hand.

Thanks for an inspiring piece.

Abiding,
