We’re called to “walk by faith and not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7)—hence, easier said than done. But let me say this: If you only see what everyone else sees, you should be alarmed.
Faith sees the unseen. The impossible is tucked away somewhere in the unseen. Faith reaches beyond the veil of the unseen to seize the impossible—and it pulls it into the seen realm.
Faith is not merely positive energy. It isn’t about mustering up enough “feel good vibes” to go about your day. That doesn’t enable one to walk on water. Biblical faith is all about Him—namely Christ Jesus. It is about “trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord” (Ephesians 4:10).
So what pleases the Lord?
Genesis 5:24 states that “Enoch walked with God”—furthermore, Hebrews 11:5 reveals concerning Enoch that “he was commended as one who pleased God.” The next verse indicates that “without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6).
A deep, abiding faith that fully trusts in the goodness of the Father as evident through the finished work of Christ on the Cross, brings great pleasure to the heart of God.
It requires trust in Him and surrender to Him. Faith is a gift from God that we must simply receive by faith. When we are willing to trust, He then enables us to trust Him from the heart. It’s a beautiful transaction. Weak man leaning on the One who is worthy of it all.
Are you willing to reach beyond your possible into His impossible?
