So we have a new driver in the house.
Since about June. It’s got everyone riled up. And it’s not because she’s such a bad driver. It’s because we are all such control freaks. And we just want a smooth, adequate speedily ride without cause for ulcers and stomach disorders.
She’s learning and she will be a good driver one day. But usually I would just rather drive. Especially in the carpool lane and on the way to church. Two very key happenings that require speed and agility.
This morning I was thinking about the passenger seat and how hard it is for me to sit there with an inexperienced driver. It’s frightening. I’m not gonna lie.. I have stomped hard on the floor and beat on the dash on more than one occasion in the past few months.
I lack faith in the driver.
Now Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
What is Faith defined as?
Dictionary.com says this…
And you haven’t seen many results.
You are tempted to lack faith.
You may waver and start asking for more specifics.
Hebrews 11 records the wall of Faith for us to look up to… Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Moses…. People of Faith. But verse 13 says… “All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance”.
These Wall of Faithers never got to see on earth what God had promised them.
It did not matter so much to our hero’s of faith if they had in hand what they were promised because they knew in their hearts they could trust God’s faithfulness.
It’s all good. He is trustworthy.
Maybe you are walking in faith and have been tempted to give up.
Your prize awaits you.
Rise up oh men and women of Faith.
