While flying along with Rudi and our children in a squeeking, creeking, jerking, frequently stopping, darting in and out of traffic, Trufi, last night on our way home from dinner, I began to contemplate FAITH. Just off the top of my head I would define faith as: putting my complete trust or confidence in something, or a result. In this case I was putting my faith in the Trufi driver and his skill to safely get us home. I really had no other choice. When we got home I considered what the scripture says about faith. One of my favorite chapters in the Bible defines what faith is. "Now FAITH is the substance (confidence)
of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by IT the elders obtained a good report. Through FAITH we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear... But without FAITH it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11: 1-3 & 6 I must confess it is sometimes easier for me to put my faith in men rather than in God. I can SEE a man. I cannot see God as a physical form. However, one of the ways I KNOW that God exists is because of his creation. " The heavens DECLARE the glory of God: and the firmament SHOWETH his handiwork."Psalm 19:1 What peace came to my heart and mind, last night as a I lay down to rest. God is watching over me and I know this by FAITH. Can I have faith in anything higher or more powerful than God... NO WAY... My soul has an anchor in what the word of God says about faith, even if every Trufi driver lets me down and wrecks, I know that my faith has found a resting place. I will put my faith in God and the promises in his Word, and I know that only in them, am I truly safe from anything that could ever harm me physically or spiritually. Well, maybe not physically, but definitely spiritually!
