Proof and Reality

We've been busy the last three weeks with meetings, Skype calls, and letter writing....but, with little visual result. It's funny, we know God is at work and that we are doing what we are suppose to in sharing with others and seeking partners in this ministry, but we've seen little evidence. I have to admit- it can be pretty frustrating and discouraging.

Yet, the Spirit reminded me this morning of Hebrews 11:1,
"Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen."

My proof that God is working this all out, is my faith.

When logic, doubt, and exhaustion creep in, faith is my proof He is working all these things for our good. Look as this phrase again, "..faith is the reality..." How amazing! Faith is not a vague notion, a rope of desperation, or a form of denial. Faith is proof and reality.

How could we ever be afraid to step out on something as solid as that?

I needed that. And I think you do too. :)
