Recently, I spoke to a good friend of mine who was facing a personal crisis and of course being the renewed Christian man that I am I suggested that he pray to God for help. My friend is also a God fearing Christian man and he let me know that he had already beseeched his heavenly father for guidance. Knowing that he had prayed I quickly asked why he still looked so worried. He replied that he was worried because his problem was real. My first thought was that God is real.
God is real. I said it. I believe it. Don't get me wrong, at times I have also been guilty of thinking that my personal storm was more real than God. I, like my friend, was wrong. I'm learning that although our circumstances are real, as Christians we have the power through faith and trust in God to alter what is real for us. It's not easy letting go of what we comprehend with our natural senses but it is the only way we can truly trust in God.
Hebrews 11:1 - Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Proverbs 3:5 - Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
If you believe in God, believe his word.
