He took him outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” -Genesis 15:5 NIV
In what areas have you said to God, “Because You haven’t done (you fill in the blank), I don’t believe you’re listening” or “When I don’t see you fulfilling a promise, I don’t believe you really care.”
Take a moment to close your eyes and breathe in deeply. Can you see the glimpse or the vision He’s promised you and the things He’s said He wants to do in and through you?
When you begin to entertain thoughts that God is unfaithful, you are falling into a trap. Don’t believe the lie dangling in front of you.
In His gentleness and patience, God will draw you out of your physical realm. He will allow you to see glimpses beyond your understanding. It is His desire for you to believe the promises He has given you and to trust that He is faithful to the end.
God is patient and sovereign. Guard your mind from deceiving thoughts and allow Him to draw you beyond your understanding to see the bigger picture of all He is doing. Trust Him. Remind yourself of everything you have to be thankful for and praise God for all He is actively doing in your life.
- Pray for vision and for God to show you the world as He sees it.
- Think of everything you have to be grateful for and give God the praise He deserves!
