Prayer Post # 3: Faith That Rocks Your World! (Literally)

Once again, from the book "Good Morning...God" by Pamela Steinke. :-)

July 6

"The faith you seek is the faith that changes lives -- the faith that turns your world upside-down and brings it back upright, the way it was meant to be.  This faith can only be received through the conscientious search of Me.  This is a part of the hidden treasure of wisdom and knowledge."


Don't you just love that line? -- "faith that turns your world upside-down and brings it back upright... the way it was meant to be."  

Deciding to follow in Jesus' footsteps can really shake up our world!   When we first take that 'leap of faith,' nothing seems to make sense: "love your enemies"... "turn the other cheek"... "enter through the narrow gate."  Errrrr. The temptation to say, "thanks, but no thanks" comes up at every twist and turn, every time we are faced with a challenge along this path.  

However, if we persevere to grow in our faith, we will begin to see the big picture.  We will begin to figure it out.  And when this faith has brought our world back "upright, the way it was meant to be" -- we can be confident in the face of any trial; because then, we are certain that we have an awesome God who loves us and watches over us.
