Faith: in Times of Great Uncertainty

Have you noticed that it is in the times of great uncertainty that the FAITH inside us suddenly breaks out and becomes the true hero? Some seasons it seems that everything I have counted on; a job, a loved one’s health, the family home, even the mass transit schedule…is altogether as fragile and transient as a stubborn leaf twitching in blustery winds of late November, causing it to cling wildly onto the twig from which it sprouted six months prior.

But, FAITH of the moment “…is the assurance (the confirmation, the title-deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see, and the conviction of  their reality ~ faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses.”  

~ Hebrews 11:1 Amplified

It is as if the urgency of pressing circumstances, and the extent of the uncertainty of their outcomes in fact draw with great hunger upon a person’s personal faith.  Faith is like a powerful, alien substance that is given to a host creature, but in a very tiny amount.  The host ultimately must figure out how to nurture, nourish the foreign matter over the span of its own lifetime.  Then, at predetermined moments the evolved faith must be exercised, proven of its potential and power.  Out of the blue, much like a mother nursing, it flows out ~  in direct proportion to the suckling child’s need!

  1. Amen. In times when all seems fermished, we as believers can have the best breakthroughs,
    and our faith is on the increase.
