Each day as we wake, we have to make a choice.  We can either accept what the world has told us, or we can believe what we feel is right.  What we feel is not always popular with our friends and family, but we know that to deny our feelings also might make us fools.

Praying to someone that we cannot see and cannot hear seems foolish all by itself, but placing your trust in this person will also not win many popularity awards with some people either.  But, that is exactly what we do when we pray to Jesus.  We place our hopes in an invisible God.  Invisible to the naked eye, but perhaps not.

Hebrews 11:1
New Living Translation (NLT)
11 Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

Confidence is key.  Even when the naked eye truly gives us plenty of evidence, we still need confidence that there is a creator that loves us.   It’s about not having to worry about the future and everything that life throws at us, because we have a real friend that knows us better than we know ourselves.

This is what faith is all about.  There’s nothing better than knowing you have someone on your side, regardless of what critics may tell you.  Jesus loves us all, and wants us to believe in Him, and to be anxious for nothing, but cast all of our cares upon Him.  It takes faith.

Questions to ask yourself…

  1. Have the critics in your life ever tested your faith.
  2. Have the heavens ever “felt like brass” when you pray?
  3. Did you know that it takes very little faith to make mountains move?
